GET ‘EM BEFORE THEY ARE GONE: Our latest installment from the Field Notes “COLORS” subscription service: “Packet of Sunshine!” Get in there and get some sun on that face.

Here’s what’s going on this spring: “This cheerful edition contains three sunny, yellow memo books, each printed with a different vibrant ink. They’re packed in a string-tied, top-loading, kraft envelope that is inspired by vintage American seed packaging. Marigold seeds and planting instructions included, as well!”

Going fast, memo book users. Get some rays in yer life with our “Packets of Sunshine.”

GREAT AMERICAN AXES: James from 10Engines dropped this one on me some time back, and man, it’s time it goes up on this site. Like a hatched wound to the head, we bring you Yesteryear Tool’s ax page.

Just look at that pile of labels underneath the axes! Incredible. Drooling, here. But I can’t tell if those are all rebuilt from the old ones, which seems to be the case on the site. “Facsimiles” as they say. Nevertheless, I love the spirit and the gusto on all the rebuilt stuff. They’re preserving this stuff, and we’re always down with that.

YEAH, THAT’S ME: Aaron Scamihorn illustrates my medicine ball head, and puts me next to Dwight from the Office. That’s all kinds of awesome. This guy! Thanks, man!

BIG PINK, BIG ORANGE: Matt Stevens gets a wild hair and takes on Dunkin’ Donuts, rebranding-wise. Some cool results in there. I especially dig that van. Here’s what Matt had to say, word for word: “I like donuts, I like design. A little rebrand I did for fun.” Simple enough. Sometimes it’s cool to just go for it. We dig.

aaron - that original dunkin donuts sign is just around the corner from our home. it was a sad freakin’ day when it came down and was replaced with the new eyesore all because the owner didn’t want to take the time or money to have it fixed. not sure where is has gone, supposedly in the owner’s storage …. but hopefully someone owns it and is taking care of it … http://www.wickedlocal.com/allston/news/x1277309974
