Good stuff from Food52

We are still selling a selected amount of our Rosemal plates in the Food52 Shop, which recently just rebranded from Provisions to simply, the Food52 Shop to keep things more streamlined.  I love so many of the other products they carry, (especially the tableware, because that's my thing) that I thought I'd give an overview of some of my Food52 favorites.

I didn't think this lace tray from Suite One Studio could get any better, but now it does; it comes in a gold-rimmed version.  So pretty.

I really love mugs without handles for some reason, and I'm always big on blue and white, so these mugs from Art et Manufacture are very much up my alley.  

This handblown Moroccan blue glass pitcher from Hawkins New York is so pretty.  And it's dishwasher safe, which is always a plus. 

These Porcelain Coffee Filter Bowls are just so cool.  What an awesome idea!  

Also for serving, this Double Handled Walnut Serving Board would add instant warmth and character to any dining table or dinner party.  And why not have two handles instead of one?!

And with spring on the horizon, these Compostable Plates are a great alternative to the typical paper or plastic plates you might use outdoors.  I love the wood grain!  

Last up, these Gold Dipped Seashell Bowls.  They have just the right amount of metallic, and can be used for a variety of things other than holding food.  Definitely a good gift item.

Take a look at what other items the Food52 shop has to offer, get great recipe ideas, and catch up on all your foodie news!

It was YuleFest weekend at the Nordic Heritage Center in Seattle.  We don't do a lot of craft fairs, in fact, we don't really do any at all, as they are a ton of work, but we loved being a part of this one.

This yearly event is a great fundraiser for an institution that works hard to continue the heritage of Scandinavian culture in the Northwest, and besides, it is really, really fun.  Music, shopping, food, and more Nordic sweaters and blonde hair than you could ever imagine.

It really is a great way to kick off the holiday season--and I love that it is the weekend before Thanksgiving, making the holiday season last as long as possible, and a little less busy once December hits.

Disclaimer: The photos below are from my phone.  They're a bit blurry, grainy, and it was beginning to get dark when I finally got a chance to take some pictures.  I was just too busy all weekend to pull out the real camera.  It is fun to get a look at this fantastic old building, though, and take a peek at our booth.

Welcome to the Holiday Season!

Yulefest 2014

After taking a few years off, we will again be participating in the Yulefest celebration at the Nordic Heritage Museum in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle.

We are so excited for the opportunity, and are so looking forward to the food, decorations, holiday spirit, and Nordic camaraderie that this kind of event brings!

At our booth we will be selling our signature dishes, towels, pillows, and a variety of other fun products.  We will also have a limited quantity of all natural, and wonderfully scented Alpine Hills Soap.  They are the most fantastic soaps, and they make great gifts.

We will be located in the new, outside tent area in the parking lot of the Museum.

Stop by on November 22nd or 23rd from 10-5!
