Vintage Japanese Confectionery Molds

While doing one of my usual searches on Etsy for “Japanese vintage” I came across these amazing cheery wood confectionery molds in Vintage From Japan‘s shop. Wouldn’t they look fabulous grouped on a wall.

There is more detailed information about these Kashigata sweets molds in Vintage From Japan’s listings.

Woohoo! I’ve blogged so many times about my love of Anthropologie, and now I can go to their website, see prices in AUS$ and BUY things! I haven’t checked out the shipping costs, but I’m very excited that if there’s something that I must have, now I can actually get it. (This is great motivation for me to get to the gym more often!)

Dishy

I have a beautiful vintage kitsch Australiana tablecloth which I love (and I’m intending to have framed), and I’ve previously blogged about Susy Stanford‘s use of vintage Australian tea towels and linens in upholstery, so you won’t be surprised that Dishy struck a chord with me.

Designer Hazel Milligan is behind Dishy, a New Zealand company that uses retro inspired fabric designs in their accessories, homewares and clothing. Their fun and kitsch products are a celebration of vintage New Zealand souvenir tea towels.

Dishy’s creations are a fun contemporary souvenir, and a cool way for kiwis to show their patriotism. They do seem to be a much more patriotic lot than us Aussies, don’t they?

Monday Blogday :: {KID} Independent


{KID} Independent is a brand new Australian blog supporting indie designers and makers, which is put together by a group of work-at-home-mums, aunties, nans and the occasional dad. It’s “a daily dose of indie style for kids”.

We’re basically a bunch of arty types with a love of all things handmade, vintage, sustainable, limited edition and independent. We crave products that are born from the hands of an artist, the heart of a loving mother, the mind of a talented designer, or the soul of an interesting character…

I was delighted to be asked to be their first ‘designer interview’ subject. The interview went live today and you can read it here.

{KID} Independent is the new kid on the block but it’s already bursting with energy and potential. Go check it out!
