Sweet Vignette

A snapshot of a display on my shelf--I'm loving fruit and clear, splashy colour. If you get the "Go to England--make her smile" reference, you make me smile.

Tray Mod

I found this fantastic Mid-century Mod molded plywood tray tucked beneath some Tupperware at a thrift store.
The first thing I thought of when I saw the pattern was my fellow designer friend Ottomanbrim on Spoonflower, whose designs have the same fabulous flair.
 The tray was made in Konga, Sweden, and the pattern may have been designed by Astrid Sampe, whose designs are still in production by Almedahls.

Pink Art Deco Swag Canister Set

 My mom found this set of Art Deco style ceramic kitchen canisters, complete with salt and pepper shakers and a napkin holder. Originally, when she brought them home, I didn't like them as much as I do now, but their glossiness and draped shape have really worked their charm. I can just see them lovingly full of flour and sugar in some old lady's powder pink and yellow kitchen. That said, that old lady may be me some day! My favourite aspect is the gorgeous swag detail! So interesting!
