Published by:

Giant Carrot Body Pillow

San Jose, California designer Amy Brown (a.k.a. “Jumbo Jibbles“) has created a 4-foot-long stuffed carrot body pillow that is sure to help make loneliness a thing of the past. The big healthy-looking vegetable pillow is available to purchase online at the Jumbo Jibbles Etsy shop.

Curl up with a carrot or impress all the kids at the Easter egg hunt with this amazing giant vegetable. Made of super-soft orange fleece and filled with polyester fibers and bean bag filler, it is a huggable “body pillow” and molds to your embrace. The carrot tops are whisper soft, and at almost 2 feet long wrap them around yourself and pretend they belong to someone else.

23 Creative Ways to Repurpose & Reuse Old Stuff

Published by:


Recycling is a hugely important part of our effort to take care of and live in harmony with the planet we call home, but it doesn’t just have to be reserved to municipal authorities or waste management companies. There are awesome and creative ways to recycle your old stuff that can be taken advantage of by almost anyone.

Every year, when spring cleaning comes around, many of us gather up our old used stuff and simply throw it out. Sometimes, trash is simply trash, but we often fail to realize that a lot of the things that we throw out can be transformed into something else that’s useful and that we probably would have wound up buying later anyway. If that old ladder you have lying around isn’t safe to climb on anymore, there’s still probably a million other things it can be used for.

And if you can’t make something useful out of your old stuff, you can still probably make something beautiful! Haroshi, Edouard Martinet, Jane Perkins and Mr. Finch are just a few of the countless artists out there that have made ingenious use of old stuff to create beautiful works of art!
