These Animals Are Terrible At Hide and Seek

Peek a Boo, I see you puppy dog. But it's ok that you're terrible at hide and seek, you're still pretty gosh darned adorable and hey, at least you seem to be having fun. 

The same goes for you kitty -you're not exactly sneaky, but we don't care -we'd rather look at that cute face and pretend we can't see you than actually not get to see you. Want to see more animals that fail at hide and seek? Then you won't want to miss this great Buzzfeed article.

Someone Isn't A Bears Fan

(Video Link)

No word on how she feels about the Super Bowl Shuffle, but we certainly know that Ellie can't stand Dick Butkus. It's possible she just hates the Bears in general, but it could just be Butkus she doesn't like. Maybe she even just hates how much the name sounds like butt kiss. No matter what, we know Ellie won't be happy if he makes an appearance at this year's Super Bowl, but at least her response is pretty darn adorable.

19 Adorable Mutts That Are Too Cute to Handle

How do you make a teddy bear that walks around and cuddles you back? By breeding a chow chow with a husky.

How about a dog that looks like a miniature Jersey cow that wants to fetch your slippers? Just blend a corgi together with a dalmatian. And the giant fluff ball and tiny cowdog are only one of the 19 adorable mutts featured on this delightful Huffington Post article all about mixed breed dogs.

Don't Use Two Pieces of Furniture When You Can Just Use One

I'm a big fan of Alton Brown and one of his major beliefs is that you should never buy a tool with only one function. While he's specifically talking about kitchen utensils, it's a philosophy that can apply to many other things -for example, your living room furniture. And with the Rise collection of furniture by Note Design Studio, you can skip having a separate coffee table and a couch in favor of having just one piece of furniture you can sit on and store your magazines or drinks on.

The Tumbleweed Light Brings A Touch of The Old West

Is your house feeling a little too soft? Then perhaps you could add in just a little ruggedness with Jean Landry's Marfa Tumbleweed Light. Conversely, while the piece is just about as iconic of the Old West as a pair of beat up cowboy boots, it is also so airy that it can actually add a little softness to an otherwise outdoorsy decor theme. 

The cool design features little more than a tumbleweed, a light (protected from the foliage in a small metal cage), a hanging cord and a wire, but the simplicity only adds to the natural beauty of the piece.

This Anti-Upworthy Plugin Could Change Your Life

The other day I experimented with an upworthy headline just because I never wrote one. Immediately we received comments from a few people who said they stopped reading other sites for using those clickbait style headlines. If you ever have that problem, then you should check out Downworthy, a new Chrome plugin that converts these ridiculous headlines into more realistic (AKA snarky and funny) versions. A few of the great substitutions include:

  • "Literally" becomes "Figuratively"
  • "Will Blow Your Mind" becomes "Might Perhaps Mildly Entertain You For a Moment"
  •  "Can't Even Handle" becomes "Can Totally Handle Without Any Significant Issue"
  • "Incredible" becomes "Painfully Ordinary"
  • "You Won't Believe" becomes "In All Likelihood, You'll Believe"

The Tower House Lets You Look Beyond The Trees

We already showed you how to spend the night in the trees totally unobserved thanks to the Mirror Cube, but if you want to actually live among the trees, you'll need a much larger space -like the Tower House. Designed by Gluck+, the Tower House stacks the cozy bedrooms and bathrooms together to provide a platform for the massive living room and dining area.

Hoisted up on the platform, the living room is situated high above the tree tops, offering an amazing view of the valley below -as well as a strikingly unique looking home.

Finally Lonely Earrings Have A Purpose

When a woman loses an earring, its mate is pretty much abandoned and useless. But architectural artists Lauren Sagar and Sharon Campbell found a clever use for old, lonely earrings: decorating a chandalier. The Chandelier of Lost Earrings Is not only beautiful, but it also takes advantage of all these pairless earrings.

You might not be able to actually buy one for your home or make one this big (this one has 3,500 earrings on it), but it's a great inspiration for women who have tons of lost earrings and don't want to just throw them out.

You Won't Believe What This Pooch Swallowed

When your pooch starts acting weird and not eating or drinking, you know you need to take him to the vet. What you might not know is that he ate something weird when you weren't home. 

In Petey's case, that something weird was seriously weird. In fact, it's hard to believe it fit in the five month old dog's body at all. That's because Petey ate a toilet bowl scrubber -a whole 15" toilet bowl scrubber. 

After a quick surgery, vets were able to remove the brush and Petey is now recovering just fine. “It was the one of the most remarkable things I have ever seen in veterinary medicine and the strangest surgery I have ever performed,” said veterinarian Dr. Yvonne Kline.

The Urban Green House Is Really Green

No, I don't mean that the Urban Green House is colored green, it's green in the eco-sense of the word. In fact, it's pretty much wood, concrete and black siding on the outside. So how is it green? Well, it is designed to be narrow, letting air flow through naturally during the summer while the wide roof and porch prevents excess sun from entering your home.

The design, by Eric Odor with Chris Meyer of SALA Architects, also features passive solar heating, bamboo floors, composite fiber-cement siding and other eco-friendly elements.

Pineapple Wrapped in Candied Bacon With Honey-Sriracha Sauce

We love sweets, bacon and Sriracha soooo much here at Neatorama and these amazing pineapple pieces wrapped in candied bacon and served with a Sriracha-honey sauce are pretty much everything we look for in a snack. Best of all, they only take a few minutes to make, so if you're one of those people that has a hard time not eating their bacon before they actually use it in a recipe, you might actually still have some left by the time you finish these -but be sure to cook extra anyway.

You can find out how to make your own over at The Cafe Sucre Farine.

What Would Happen if Harry Potter Lost

We've already seen what happens when Harry defeats Voldemort, but what happens in the parallel universe where that's not the case? Thanks to Imgur user deathbystapler, now we know a little more of the tale...at least, what crimes the resistance is guilty of and the bounties on them and which positions some of Voldemort's loyal Death Eaters are awarded when they win the war.

If you like Harry Potter, you definitely won't want to miss the entire series, even if only to celebrate that Harry and the others won.

This Wombat Just Recieved A Hip Replacement

Hip replacements: they aren't just for old people any more. In fact, they're not even limited to humans as adorable Wanda the Wombat just proved. The cutie pie had severe arthritis that resulted in her no longer using her leg at all, so the veterinarians opted to fix her up with an artificial hip.

Ordinarily wombats only live for five years in the wild, so at 22, it's no wonder little Wanda needed a little help from her doctor. And we're glad she got the surgery she needed -we want to keep looking at this precious face for years to come.

Baby Blocks For Your Little Geek In Training

If you're a geek, you probably want your little babe to end up a geek as well, or at least to be well versed in geek culture so the two of you can relate with one another later on. Thanks to Jonathan M. Guberman, you can start them before they can even talk with these delightful laser engraved baby blocks each featuring four geek icons that start with the letter on the block. You can find a close up of all the block designs here and a full list of all of the characters and icons on the blocks on Guberman's website, Up, not North.

These Canes Function As Furniture As Well

Anyone who has to use a cane knows how useful they are, but Lanzavecchia + Wai (the same team that brought us the delightfully fun Rocking Bench) discovered a way to make using a cane around the house even more useful. There are three models of the Together Cane -the I-cane, which features a laptop or iPad desk, the T-cane, that can be used as a tea tray, and the U-cane,  can be used to carry and store magazines and/or crafting supplies.

And so the elderly don't have to lift up the loaded up canes, they come with wheels, which are presumably tight enough to prevent the wheels from slipping out from under the user.

Enjoy Lighting and Floral Arrangements With the Living Light

A lot of you seemed to enjoy the Striped Standing Lamp we featured on Homes and Hues a few weeks ago, and here's another wonderful creation by the same designers, Studio Floris Wubben, we're sure you'll enjoy. The Living Light is a simple-looking vase with a simple light in the bottom. Just put any hollow-stemed flower into the base and the light will result in a glowing blossom that won't soon be forgotten.

And, if you like this, you'll probably also enjoy the modernist Crown Vase that lets your stems stand on their own.

If Geek Heroines Were Stars of Teen and Pulp Novels

Love comic book and sci fi heroines but wish they were more trashy an predictable? Then you'll love these wonderful pop culture book covers by Tony Fleecs that feature everyone from Harley Quinn to Princess Leia. 

The great thing about these creations is that no matter what you consider brainless and trashy, these fake novels would ccertainly qualify in the best possible way.

Cook Anywhere With The Kochinsel

If you have ever lived in or even seen a truly small studio apartment, you know that many don't have kitchens because there's simply no room. But if you ever have to live in such a space (or decide to go squat in an old office building that has no kitchen), now you can get around the frustrating problem of not being able to cook for yourself thanks to The Kochinsel by Remo Zimmerli, a small, rolling kitchen complete with an oven and stove that have their own small gas tank to keep them going strong without being anchored to your wall.

View more pics over at Homes and Hues: The Kochinsel Converts Any Space Into A Home

We've featured Remo Zimmerli's work before on Homes and Hues, since we also loved his brilliant Living Cube. The designer certainly knows how to work to maximize the space within small homes and if you have a Living Cube and a Kochinsel, you've got pretty much everything you need in an entire apartment.
