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.

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!

I found this little wall plate at a thrift store for $3 and love it with all my heart. The blue and white, birds and flowers, sweetly scripted poem, and quirky off-center hanging hole are what make it charming perfection. I wonder, did someone receive this as a gift from a dear friend going away?
