ROBOT LOVE: Who knew something so soft and squishy could be reminiscent of cheery '60s cartoon robots? OK, granted, that's probably not something you ever thought of before. But here come handmade felt pillows from local artist Gretchen Cook, which run the gamut from the cute and girly (we're talking purple flowers here) to the bold and geometric. They're a bit of a splurge at $85 to $125, but taste knows no price limit, right? GET IT:RCKNDY, 1515 U St. N.W.
