Hunted:: Gathered: 09/17/11

I'm baaaack! Sorry for falling off the face of the earth, was quite busy working towards a deadline...
Now that it's over I can share my lovely finds with you.

I'll be keeping this one short and sweet but rest assured that I have plenty of goodies to share at a later date...

My first finds are salt & pepper shakers by nambe. The line is called topsy turvy and they were designed by Neil Cohen.

hehehe... isn't this an interesting print? well, I was captivated by the colors, the figures and the title Painfully Coy. I took several art courses and was ok at interpreting art but this one... well... I just don't know what to say

I was surprised to see this vase at a local thrift. It looked scandinavian so I picked it up. It is a Holmegaard vase designed by Per Lutken. It is actually signed and dated by him too!

Lastly, my utmost favorite find of the week. I just can't stop looking at it. There was something about it that immediately drew me in. I love the subdued colors and the subject matter reminds me all too much of my childhood.

It isn't signed and it's on fabric. I don't really know what to call pieces that were done on fabric... anyone out there know? Anyone seen anything like this before? I don't know where to start looking! Is it Japanese? Is it Chinese? Is it Mexican? Whatever it is... I'm definitely keeping this one and I don't say that often.

I'll be pairing up this week with Sophie and Selena! Have a great week!


  1. I think that's the same Per Lutken that we found earlier too - unfortunately ours had a chip on the lip and quite a bit of water staining. I debated for a long time, but finally grabbed it - couldn't resist at a dollar, ah well. The fabric painting is really cool.

  2. your new art is so sweet. lucky find.

  3. Wonderful things! I love both art pieces, but you're right, the last one is something special!

  4. Lovely things! The vase is great. I can imagine how heavy it is. The ponytail print is really wondeful.

  5. Great Nambe salt and pepper shakers.

  6. Lovely finds as usual. I think my daughter would definitely identify with that picture. Our brushing sessions look pretty much like that - just not as subdued and elegant ;-)
