Stuff and things

Not much new going on around my house - except the kitchen is painted! There's a sneak peek on my Instagram. The hubby and I drove an hour last weekend to a really crappy flea market in Morrisburg called McHaffies (gawd I hate that thrifting is such a pain in the ass here) to find some kitchen accessories and I had very little luck. 

I managed to find a few little things in blues that might work (a gorgeous West German vase in a pattern I don't already have, a Japanese mug and a little vase that weighs more than it looks), and also picked up a West German pot, a gorgeous glass vase and a sputnik thing that I think used to be a coat rack in another life. All of these but the pot were purchased at the only booth really worth visiting - Off the Wall Retro. I always buy something there. Amazing West German pottery (among other things) at great prices.

And totally unrelated to house-y items but I had to mention.....LVNEA. April lives in Montreal and creates the most amazing earthy scents you will ever smell. I have several items from her shop and they are HEAVENLY. This coffee & cardamom lip balm and Vetyver Gris solid perfume are my latest purchases. So lovely.

Intueri Light 

Really cool lighting alert!!! We received an email the other day from József Hegedüs of Hungary about his startup company Intueri LightIntuition is the ability to know when something is right or not, and to sense when there's something extra there—an ingrained feeling that’s central to the creative and production processes of young Hungarian label Intueri Light. The studio's founders Krisztián Mécs and József Hegedűs tend to focus on the more personal aspects of lighting, producing lamps with particular emotional resonance. Through the use of gleaming hand-spun metals and hand-blown glass globes, each is individually formed into a timeless shape by local artisans, working hand in hand with the label to bring form to its intimate insight into illumination.
