My Favorite Things Today

20130207-054758.jpg A quick spin around the shop yesterday to do a little straightening and I snapped a few things that caught my eye. Some very new for us, others staples–all stuff I love. The above French boxes of matches looking swell in an oversized clear vintage apothecary jar. These matches are cool enough to leave sitting out on the table at the ready.

20130207-055130.jpg Spools of varying colors of baker’s twine that are always a hit and great to have on hand for quick wrapping projects of any sort.

20130207-055255.jpg My weakness for vintage Champagne buckets strikes again. I like the shapes, the fonts, pretty much everything about old buckets.

20130207-055504.jpg It was somewhat comical how long it took for us to get this candle in stock, as I had ordered it last August. But alas, the rosemary has landed, and I just know it was worth the wait.

20130207-060449.jpg Loving these simple gift tags.

20130207-060617.jpg A piece by artist Sue Tackmier that just makes my heart sing. She composes vignettes in old cigar boxes. This is just all good.

20130207-060830.jpg My adoration continues for these incredibly heavy clear ball candlesticks. We have carried these for awhile, and just received another large order of them. Singly or massed together in multiples, this is my favorite candlestick at the moment. Just pretty.

20130207-061124.jpg These quite thin clear stubby goblets would work for so many types of beverages. I think they would also look grand filled with blooms as a low vase on a dining table.

There you have it! I hope you enjoyed the quick spin around and what caught my eye. A happy Thursday to each and every one of you in your part of the world. Thank you, always, for reading.
Bestest, Ted

  1. Love the candlesticks and the goblets. Would love the price for each please! Lovely items :)

  2. Hi Jennifer! The goblets are $16 and the ball candlestick is $90 each. Let me know if you would like some sent:) Hope you are swell. XX, Ted

  3. Loved the tour, Ted! It’s the next best thing to being there in person (which is definitely on my dream list).

    And, loving those LOVE bracelets and necklaces you showed recently!!!
    xoxo, Elizabeth

  4. Your writing, observations and ability to see the wonder in the everyday brings a smile to my face and heart. Thank you! Your stores and restaurant names are on my list for my next visit to Seattle. The short 2 hour journey from Vancouver is a quick get away. Looking forward to it!

  5. Hi Elizabeth! Happy you liked the tour:) Loving those LOVE bracelets too. I am going to that event in LA, and then we are going to have a little Santa Barbara trip after–sorry to miss you not being there. But, I read somewhere that there is going to be a smaller event in NY in May? If you hear anything, let me know. Either way, I/we will be in New York so we are meeting up for a bottle of Veuve. For sure! xoxo back, Ted

  6. Marianne, thank you so much for the kindest words. That just made my day! Hope to see you soon on your next visit, Ted

  7. Your favorite things today list is full of wonderful delights! You are correct about the Hugo Guiness print, what a gem. I am very fascinated with the cigar box vignette. Does the artist specialize in one subject or does she offer a variety of subjects? I have never seen a vignette displayed in this manner and I think it is pretty darned cool. I absolutely love this personalized glimpse into the WK world.

  8. Hi Mary. Glad you liked the tour. All stuff I adore–as you know. The artist with the cigar boxes puts all sorts of things in her work, with many themes–shells, birds, hands, eyes. Really whatever is speaking to her on her treasure hunts for things to fill up the boxes. She lives in Portland and I have been a fan of her work for 15+years. We have pieces of hers in our home that we bought before I even had the shops. Once I opened the Market shop, I knew I wanted to carry her distictive work. Plus, she is a really fab person. That all sealed the deal. Happy Friday, Ted

  9. Love it all…just wish I was there in person. I have a vintage french ashtray that is begging for some of those matches. Need to get in there soon!

    Tammy

  10. Hi Tammy! Hope to see you soon… Bestest, Ted
