Design Can Make Me Happy Too

I stole my title from Stefan Sagmeister, but in the case of the OXO Good Grips Pour and Store watering can, design really makes me happy. When I exclaimed to Hardware Store Guy that the can was so smart, he replied that everything OXO makes is smart. Nice testimonial from the field!

Planned for easy storage, the spout can rotate to nest against the main portion of the (plastic) can. The spout can also turn outward for sprinkler "mode".

If you want to keep life simple, the rose—who knew the sprinkler head thingie is called a rose?—can be stored inside the body of the can.

I justified my whopping $11 spree by (successfully) planting seeds in recycled take-out coffee cup "pots".

Common objects redesigned beautifully can really make your day.
