Unique Finds May 2012
Pig Butter Dish
A very happy and satisfied pig, this detailed farm yard friend will bring cheer to your table while keeping your butter fresh and cool. The figural pewter lid rests upon a porcelain butter plate. When refrigerated prior to service, the pewter lid will keep butter cool for hours on a buffet table. Named “Porky Butterball” by the young and young at heart members of the Vagabond House family, this charming butter dish is a favorite for summer parties. We all love finding it filled with Birgit’s special herb butter. $162

The collection is inspired by the natural world, the way light creates shadows and reflections, the microscopic details found in nature and the infinite textures created through layering.

A Symmetric Closet From CB2
Dressed to the nines. Nine interior features max out their most upgraded wardrobe ever. A look inside reveals nine amenities: full-length mirror inset in right door, three hanging metal hooks inside left door and one removable closet rod to name a few. A natural in the bedroom, but a hardworking guest room or entry piece as well.
Weighty and warm, yet made of soft pure cotton, this just might be the most perfect blanket ever. We love the yummy texture of the dense, chunky knit. We love that it’s big enough to look good folded at the end of the bed. And we can’t help but imagine ourselves wrapped up in it, relaxing on some great porch in an Adirondack chair watching the sun go down over the water.
