this new collection of wire ware by naoto fukasawa for plusminuszero would be perfect in that simple kitchen. i think my favorite is the fruit basket. that black wire is pretty and simple!
betty woodman sure has some delightful plates over in the rosenfield collection. the painterly strokes are what do it for me. i love the simple, imperfect, painted line, and here they are . . . right on the plate. just beautiful.
if you’re unfamiliar with the ceramics collection of david and louise rosenfield, then head right over here for a view of 1,891 ceramic works by 418 artists! its a wonderful website that i turn to regularly for ceramic art.
i love little notebooks. one of the things i miss most about being a student is stocking my desk full of interesting notebooks. i don’t have to be a student to keep a few handy and well-designed notebooks around, so i guess its time for me to pick out some new ones!
it has been way too long since i’ve given my full attention to my blog. i’m sorry self! but its a new week and exciting things are happening, so it feels good to be back in action.
i mean, what?! its weird. all i can think about are kitchens. dining tables, kitchen cupboards, spice racks, dishes on my table, a full on tea & coffee station, mismatched chairs at the table, art i would have hanging on the walls, cutting boards, hanging herb pots by the kitchen window- the list goes on . . . i want to decorate a new kitchen bad!
but i like this painting, the spanish chair by mary fedden- it calms me down.
who else out there gets to work one-on-one with their favorite photographer? i am learning new things every time i see her! she’s the best, thanks kaley.
see her work over at kaleyphoto!
. . . a book by ann rand, illustrated by paul rand. it is so beautiful! these pictures are from the first edition, 1956.

on monday i had the chance to wander down massachusetts street in lawrence, kansas and do a little window shopping. unfortunately foxtrot was closed, but i seriously love this window display. the colors are just right, and the use of those simple 5 gallon buckets is really neat. i very much enjoy a nicely arranged window . . .
