Fruit of the Room.

I’m on the hunt for an attractive and unique fruit basket or bowl to nestle beneath two hanging glass pendants on my granite countertop. I know that in the overall realm of things, a fruit bowl is less of a concern for many – but in my life, even the design of my keychain is of utmost importance.

I’m tired of soggy tomatoes and browning bananas, so I need to find a cute container that will keep my produce as ripe as the day I bought them (lots of hopes). When a lemon just won’t do.

No More Chomping, Gulping, Bloating.

At least I hope. I just received Alpha’s new food bowl from Doctors Fosters and Smith. It’s a pewter and ivory stoneware bowl molded into a shape that is supposed to curb the fast intake of kibble during feeding time. I typically feed her a good heaping 1 Cup scoop of Royal Canin for German Shepherd twice daily. This is a pic with the whole serving. I’ll let you know how it goes at dinner time. I’ll do anything to keep her from any avoidable emergency situations – like canine Bloat.

Marry Form and Function.

I love sculptural vases or pots. I find that most times I am drawn to the ornate, geometric, or colorful designs. However, pure white and simple sometime wins. On a flea market trip in NYC last year, I passed over a beautiful small, round, multi-colored floral pot that was being sold for $50. The guy would not take $40 so I moved on. The price tag was a bit too high for me that day (must have been dropping coin on lots of other goodies in NYC that weekend). What was I thinking! Too small? Too busy? Too much moolah? I’ve been picturing it ever since. Here are a few that make any day brighter and any flower that much more beautiful.

Scored Some Silver.

I attended the Dog Days of Summer in Mid-City Washington DC last weekend. It was hot and steamy but the urban streets were bustling. Although I came across so many cool things, I happened to score only one bargain find – $6 for these three nesting silver plated Paul Revere bowls. I love them!

Just $6 for these three silver bowls!
