 I recently came across this pretty sea urchin salt cellar ($40) by Celia Landman on the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) website. The gift store site showcases a selection of art, jewelry and home accessories designed and produced by RISD students and faculty. It's a great resource for amazing gifts at great prices-best of all, the profits go back to RISD for special programs. There are hundreds of beautifully designed items featured on the site, here are a few of my favorites:
 Nesting tables by Paul Loebach ($400)
 Round Framed record mirror ($135) Jeff Davis
 Gummy bracelet ($40) Yasmin Khun
 Take Out light by Chris Haines ($48)
 Penguin Pocket Pillow ($104)  Stephanie Housley
 Oyster soap dish ($28) Alison Evans

Square Ribbon vase ($90) Peter Hewitt 
Giraffe toilet brush ($16) Christopher Raia

And the winner of the MacKenzie-Childs tray is Design Chic-congratulations!

That take out light is so fun. It would be interesting to put LED lights in it and use it in a contemporary Chinese restaurant.

That tray was beautiful!

Have a great weekend, Cindy

Lucky Design Chic girls!! WOW - thank you for reminding me - I totally forgot about the RISD site. I went to the "sister" school and we were allowed to take 4 classes there for credit, which of course I did. They also have a FABULOUS small museum. That would be a great trip since Providence is now such a fantastic city - a great stop perhaps on the way to Newport, the Cape or the ferry to Nantucket!

One of my clients purchased all of her dishes from a sale from our local college's art department. They are beautiful ceramics, all hand made. What an affordable way to acquire some lovely pieces for a collection. You never know which artist will be famous someday!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Yours is beautiful.
