Clean, Practical and Elegant

Simple honesty. Clean, practical and elegant. Well shaped.  These are some of the words used to describe Maxwell Ryan's new tableware line with Canvas Home. Beautiful colors, only two.  A warm white and a warm grey.  They do look eye catching together.  Beautiful and elegant. 

I do very much like the grey and creamy white used together.  It does make a classic, utilitarian and timeless look.  

To complete the look and line he has added 3 colorways of table linens;  natural, salmon, and wine.  Colors that can be used year round in all seasons.

I am due for new wine glasses. I may have to do some purchasing.

Happy Monday!


Aprons, Market

Holiday Market this weekend

Holiday season is here and market season as well as shopping season is in full swing. This past week we saw Black Friday, Small Biz Saturday, Cyber Monday and Giving Tuesday. I'm exhausted just repeating those.  This weekend is the Etsy NY Handmade Holiday Cavalcade being held at Chelsea Market. 

I will be there selling aprons, tea towels, napkins and runners.  Of course there will be some festive table linens as well. 

Elf gnomes are happy to hop around table in this reversible runner with pom poms.


I will also be debuting a new apron, the Bekko Vendor Apron.  Of course anyone can use it but I did design it with a craft vendor in mind. Pockets for pens, scissors, iPad, hammer loop for the jewelry designer or towel loop for the chef. and a itty bitty coin pocket.

The Bekko is made is a nice medium weight cotton and the pockets are double lined with a pop fabric.

The Cavalcade will be held this weekend December 5th and 6th at Chelsea Market.  The first 100 people will receive an awesome Goody Bag!  The doors open at 10.  You can find more info here!
