Digging it

I recently came into possession of a white bisque Rosenthal vase. It's quite handsome and I'm very keen on it.
This is the same vase that I have, but this one is for sale at Mood Indigo Vintage
A little digging around, and I learned that this is a collection by Finnish designer Tapio Wirkkala.

Now I kind of want a lot more of these white beauties.

This "Pollo" vase is available from Square
This guy is from the MoMA
If you see any of these lovelies in your local junk shop, but them for me. I want them all. And here's more info about Tapio Wirkkala:

Liebster Lub.


Manal at Vanity in Vanilla so kindly tagged me with a “Liebster Award”, which I humbly accept!


"Liebster" is the German word for "beloved", and this award is a way of recognizing the blogs with fewer than 200 followers (like me!) and claim them as my beloveds, maybe? It's hazy. And here are the rules as I understand them:  as a recipient of the Liebster award, I must pass on this recognition to five blogs who meet the criteria, and then reveal 5 random facts about myself, and then do a little jig and bake a pie. No! I made those last two things up. And, I only have 3 blogs for you...

Here we go. I will direct you to 3 of my real life friends with blogs, and encourage you to read what they have to say. Here they are:

Here are 5 random facts about myself. 

1. I hate toenails. I hate seeing them, I hate having them. They make me retch. They are disgusting. I cut mine so short that they basically aren’t there – and I encourage you to do the same.

2. When I was 15 I memorized all the words to Lisa Loeb’s song “Stay (I Missed You)”, and I still enjoy singing it, even if it destroys all my make-believe indie cred, if I ever fooled anyone into believing I had any.

3. When I go to a movie, once it starts I immediately start thinking about when I can go home. I worry about how long the movie might be, and what would happen if I needed to walk out. Even if I enjoy the movie, I still think about leaving.

4. Olives and honey are the two foods that I absolutely will never eat. They are my food enemies.

5. When I was a kid I wanted to be in the FBI, or be a detective. I still think I’d be pretty good at it. I fancy myself an amateur sleuth (snoop).

Here is a photographic interpretation of how honored I was to receive this award - represented by my cat, some strawberries, an American flag and some pita chips. Thanks, Manal (sorry for the cat photo, I know you're not keen)!

In Rainbows

I've been working on something, but I'm not sure where it's going.


Izzy seems to like it though.


I need some batting, and then I'll do the back and border. For now it's on hold.

Updates

You might notice that I added a page as a way for you to stay up to date on my progress with my 2012 goals. So far, I've got new glasses (yay), got a haircut (I think it's the "Rachel' - ugh), finished a few Governor General award winners, and took a class in HTML/CSS!

Also, my little helper and I have been working on something with our new sewing skills.
