Pardon My Dust

I'm afraid I must apologize once again for neglecting this blog. The truth of the matter is that between the heatwave we've been having, my consistently chaotic personal life (not in a bad way, don't worry!), and the upswing in business since the Stationery Show, I've been devoting every spare minute to staring off into space. This picture was taken the other evening from the dog park, where I did just that for some time. I promise that soon enough, I will be all post-happy again, but in the meantime, please bear with me while I breathe...

Pitcher Perfect

My last post reminded me that I never showed you my full creamer collection! As you can see, I've completely run out of room on the shelf. I'm working on a better way to display them...


Yesterday I went to the semi-annual Art Deco sale in San Francisco. It was pretty disheartening to see how the economy has affected this sort of show... it was all the buzz at the trade shows this year as well, but I was especially sad to see only about 2/3 of the usual vendors here, and therefore only 2/3 of the gorgeous vintage goods that are usually on display. I did luck out, though, with this amazing set of Iroquois china! It was a steal, and I love it, particularly the serving pieces. You know how much I love creamers- look at this gorgeous one! I can't wait for my next dinner party.

At Long Last

Hi! I'm so sorry I've been bad about posting lately. The truth is that I've been busier than I can ever remember being in my life! That didn't stop me from visiting Alameda Point this morning, and here are some of the things that caught my eye.
