My mother’s china has been packed in a box for 27 years.
I have taken it with me from city to city, to nine different homes, but have never had the cabinet space to display it.
Well, today it sees the light!
Isn’t it beautiful?
After all those moves, I unwrapped each piece with some trepidation, but only one was broken.
It somehow seems fitting.

An update on my recent pasta post…
Those stylin’ shells have been spied on the shelves!
The pasta packaging without compare was on display in a grocery store in Toronto.
Thanks for the pic! (I’ll take one of each.)

As a fettuccine head who works hard every day to be more spaghettoni, this packaging speaks to me.
I am also hungry.

Chelsea Market has displayed fabric wings on one interior wall so tourists can fancy themselves real photographers.
Works for us locals, too.

You know you want ’em…and you can buy ’em!
But you have to floss them every day, so plan accordingly.

Pantone, the leading authority on color and color trends, just announced the Color of the Year for 2016.
There are two: Rose Quartz and Serenity.
Pantone says these shades reflect society’s ‘search for peace and tranquility.’
I think someone on the selection committee is having a baby.

As many grilled cheese sandwiches as I have eaten in my life, I can’t understand why I don’t own these yet…
I must be a part of the club, right?
(Probably wouldn’t wear them…but it’s the principle of the thing — ya know?)

The holiday decorations in my neighborhood have been hung.
I love ’em.
They remind me of the fussy versions from my childhood, but are cleaner and simpler in design.
I hope they aren’t predictors of lots of snow this winter. Cause I would like them a whole lot less.
