This bowl of vintage buttons are actually peppermint candy. Are they not the sweetest things you have ever seen? You can buy these lovely pastel vintage buttons here, from Andie Specialty Sweets.
A Basket of Treasures
Tricia of Conversations with the Muses sent me this vintage basket filled with vintage teacups, saucers, napkins and tea for making a donation to The Lucky Few. The Lucky Few is a non profit organization dedicated to helping unwanted animals, most of which are cats. Obviously, being a cat owner / lover myself, Tricia did not have to reward me for my contributions. I regularly donate to my local humane society, Potter League, and to The Humane Society of the U.S.
This Beach Thingy
It is obvious, by it's name, that this object is something for the beach....something to use at the beach. What it is exactly, is not so obvious. This happy green object is in fact a super light yet very strong stackable chair back. When shoved into the sand, it creates a lovely chair out of your chosen beach spot.
The designer, Larry Laske, is a holder of several utility patents, appeared in museums the world over, worked for and with such companies as Dansk, Alessi, Esprit and Steelcase, and has landed many awards through the years.
"This chair is not about creating a lounge chair, but to create a lightweight, durable backrest. The prongs penetrate into the sand far enough to be stable, and because the chair is made of plastic it is flexible, making it extremely comfortable."
-- Larry Laske
