Sprout | A Pencil That Grows ($20) is a very simple but excellent concept. We all know that as soon as a pencil gets down to the point where there's only an inch or so left it's pretty much useless. The Sprout lets you put that little stub to get use. The end of the Sprout has a seed capsule that is water activated, after you plant your pencil and water it a few times the capsule dissolves and the seed's start germinating. The plants usually take about a week to sprout. The Sprout pencils come in a number of varieties including vegetables, herbs and flowers like rosemary, tomato, marigold, and many more.

The Bal house by Terry and Terry Architecture Firm ($TBA) is a beautifully designed 2000 sq ft ranch in Menlo Park, CA. The house was created for a retiring couple who required space which was easily accessible. It has two areas, a bedroom wing and a main living area, which are connected by a transparent hallway. The hallway provides views to the garden, and extends all the way into the core of the house. We love smaller modern homes that show what right sizing is all about.
