Pretty Coasters

07/21/2010

While we were in Miami Beach we decided to check out a thrift store that had some good reviews, called SoBe Thrift. I’m thankful we didn’t find anything big because we were a mile from our vehicle. We picked up these two coasters with a funky mid-century pattern on them. We have one at home that we found at a Nashville thrift store. I haven’t investigated to find out the brand of these yet but they remind me a bit of our Franciscan Pottery/Gladding, McBean & Co starburst platter.

I love a cup of tea, especially if it’s in a pretty tea cup. The saucers look great with these blue tea cups.


Sorry for my lack of posting earlier this week. I don’t have any exciting excuse, I just got busy and decided sleeping was more important that blog posting. 🙂

Miami Beach Art Deco

07/15/2010

Art Deco, the modern art and architecture movement of the 1930s and 40s, was the launching pad for mid-century modern design. I don’t know if I would have been able to describe art deco two weeks about but after a day spend in Miami Beach, I have a much better understanding of and appreciation for the style. Pastel colors, rounded corners, geometric shapes, modern angles, neon. I’ll let the photographs speak for themselves.
