This cute alphabet-inspired dinnerware arrived at Chapters-Indigo recently, and unfortunately the pictures on their website don’t really do them justice, so I’ve included a close-up shot from my iPhone below. What a fun and modern take on something as simple as silver sans-serifed letters.

Do polka dots ever really go out of style? I’ve always been drawn to them; they’re fun and playful and can even be sophisticated in some cases. Just because so many polka dotted items have been catching my eye, I thought I’d share some.
Above: set of 4 Larabee Road black tidbit plates from Kate Spade, FABULOS glasses from IKEA, Cheers Dots platter and plate from Mikasa, set of 6 polka dot dessert plates from Bed, Bath & Beyond, polka dot glass from Fishs Eddy

There’s a special place in my heart for trays! I just love fun designs on an object meant just for bringing you something that’s supposed to make you happy, like food or booze.
These new lacquer trays from Fishs Eddy are so much fun. I’m particularly in love with the “Cheer Up” one below. It really does cheer me up. Now, where’s that drink?
I recently scorched my teapot on the stove accidentally. When I do something stupid like that I naturally turn to looking at pretty objects to replace it with.
My husband and I are actually moving in about two months, so I’m not looking to purchase anything until we actually move. However, our new apartment will be very light and bright. Lots of white and grey! So naturally I am gravitating towards some white teapots.
These are my two favourites. On the left, is the pricey Alessi Bavero teapot at $122 USD, and on the right is the more reasonably-priced Gluckstein Home Linea teapot at $21. What a steal! It’s currently on sale, so it may just be worth picking up now.
If you’re feeling a little more dainty and girly, these teapots have nice, elegant shapes. On the left is the Gordon Ramsay teapot by Royal Doulton at $115 USD and on the right isDiane Von Furstenberg’s Pebblestone teapot at $115.
With the Gluckstein teapot at $21, clearly my taste in serving ware doesn’t always have to be pricey. I’m definitely heading to The Bay to check it out this week!
I’m very excited for the Missoni home items coming to Target this fall. I really hope I can make it across the border to snag some of these beauties. In particular, this ceramic rectangular platter and the bright orange and red bowl below. Love them!
