Digging The 50's

Etsy seller GSArcheologist offers fab mid century pieces for the home. 

Gorgeous atomic serving set.

 The Midwest art teacher behind GSArcheologist began collecting mid-century finds when she was out looking for interesting pieces for her adult childrens' homes.  As many of us do, she could not resist "saving" these classic and sleek items from a most certain doom. 

 This lovely piece would be wonderful for so many uses. Summertime simple syrup for beverages, cream at breakfast with a bowl of blueberries, or a bouquet of flowers on your bedside table.  I am a stained glass artist and I love Blenko glass. Their colors are subtle & unique and yet seem saturated. The photograph of this piece is wonderful. I crave it!

Speaking of cravings...this tea set caused one, too! I see the cups prepped with precooked noodles, vegetables and shrimp and the pot filled with dashi. When guests settle in just add hot dashi and you have a hearty soup starter on a cold winter evening with friends.
