Archives for the month of: September, 2011

Am I trying too hard? Possibly, but hey, like being overdressed, its not such a bad thing really, is it?

Mikasa Terra Stone in so many gorgeous shades. Circa 1970’s but so totally modern. The shape of the jugs [yes, I like jugs, I’ve announced it, its finally out there] is just perfect.

God I am a nerd…

Check out the ‘Rhubarb’ Spoon, freaky but kind of cool.

Yep, thats a corny title I know, but hey, feel free to come up with a better one than mi -e -ine

And while I am in the mood, it kind of suits…

Was as fresh as the bright blue sky

A little bit of green.

The cutlery tray is Gayware. Yes, Gayware. It was the 50’s.

A Sydney product too, fittingly.

The little Amsterdam Houses? Delftware blue and white porcelain reproductions of old Dutch canal houses, once filled with  jenever [a Dutch liquor.]  Given to Business Class travellers on KLM flights.

Koffie Grinder, thats a whole other Story coming soon.

Blue & white plates, would look great on a wall or use as mismatched set.

Death to  matchy matchy.
