West Elm is having a super sale right now. They call it the end of season sale…but I’m not exactly sure what season they’re referring to as I feel summer hasn’t even started!
I spotted a cute owl mug for today’s 20 Below from West Elm’s porcelain collection.

The owl espresso mugs are pretty cute too.
Collections. Do you have any? Of what?

In addition to my small Alessi collection, I also collect white milk glass, Sophie Conran serving pieces, and Eiffel Tower miniatures. Oh – and it seems I’m also slowly building up an animal kingdom. Hmm…maybe I’ve gone a little overboard on my collections.
One of my pet peeves – people saying eXpresso when what they really should say is eSpresso. It rolls off the tongue so much more nicely.

I was recently introduced to the lovely Heyday Design, owned by Vancouver artist Claire Madill and I’m impressed (thanks Christine!). These white porcelain creations are all about modern Canadiana!

I have a growing collection of glass Imperial crown jars so I’m definitely a fan of the white version above. Claire creates these jars from a slipcast using a mold made in-studio from the original glass version (some courtesy of her nanna – sweetness!). And the fun doesn’t stop there – Claire has a line of accessories as well. Have a look at these earrings:
