This time of year is a bit like Christmas for a shopkeeper, as we have boxes and boxes arriving daily with new goods. It is always so fun placing the new things around the shops and finding them a home. Yesterday orange was a prevailing color that we kept seeing in product. The above Little Shirley vases which are locally based are just the sweetest darn things. They come in a ton of colors, but I just honed in on the oranges and the greens. I know, very surprising. These will make a perfect little host/hostess gift.
These Opinel knives have been made in the same workshops in France since 1890. I have been a fan of these for awhile, but the orange handles put me over the top for wanting to carry them at Watson Kennedy. These knives fold, so they are nifty to have in your bag or picnic basket when you need to call a knife into culinary action.
