Always a tabletop junkie .....
I found these fabulous cotton printed tablecloths 
& matching napkins at Funktion.
The cloths are available in two sizes,
60" x 60" & 72" x 90".
I often mix up my dish patterns & 
I think I might mix up the napkin patterns too!!!
Trés chic!!!!

My friend Jackie Shapiro uses her spectacular eye 
 for pattern & color 
to add innovative products to her 
French Bull collection.
These new reusable coffee mugs 
elevate "take-out" coffee to a new level!!!

San Francisco based Lunares, owned by Nima Oberoi, 
is one of the most "color infused" 
home collections at the NY Gift Show!!!
I love these "ice cream pints" & ordered every color ...
one for each of my favorite ice cream flavors!!!
And how divine are the individual scoops
that are attached to each pint!!!

As usual candles were everywhere ....

were the sweetest puppies I met!!!
What a match ....
puppies + candles + great color = Spring 2012!!!!

is home to amazing "art accessorations." 

New York artist Rob Wynne has created this unlimited edition of
divine hand painted dinner plates and platters.

The 21 quotes decorating the rims of the 10 1/2" dinner plates 
are pulled from history, literature, poetry, ......
or are original "thoughts" from the artist!!!!

Mix and match phrases as you like ......
making your dinner table an "artist's conversation piece"!!!

The platter is available with 3 different quotes too!!!
