The best of 2010 - the 1st 6 months.

I thought it would be fun to look back over the last year and pull out some of my favourite posts. I realized once I got started that there are too many for just one post here today so I took the first 6 months of 2010 and edited it down to some of my fave things. Sometimes when I am trolling around the interweb I will come across something that really grabs me - purely visual - and in those first 2 seconds I am so moved or inspired that it often ends up here at The Cafe. So these are links to THOSE posts - the ones that really grabbed me in the first half of 2010. Hope you like my picks. I'll do the 2nd half of 2010 in the next day or 2. (Remember these are just one image from a whole post - so click on the links and fill your boots!) Happy New Year my friends!

Vintage notion paperweights

Hello everyone! Did you have a wonderful weekend? Sounds like some of you got an awful lot of snow in the last few days - hope you can hit the slopes - or just stay cozy at home. (I definitely hope you are not stuck at an airport somewhere!) I thought you might love these fabulous little paperweights from my pal Fancy Linda. Linda has taken some of her vintage notions and immortalized them under glass. This is so fun - I love that dapper chap in the red and white striped shirt.

Inspiration - simple utilitarian objects

Last week, before Christmas, I stumbled on these beautiful things on an interesting Japanese site, Billet. I can't tell you much about the site except they have wonderful, vintage inspired, utilitarian objects. Don't you love the leather envelopes?
