While I am preparing a new post about my trip to NY last week I thought you probably be happy with seeing these beautiful embroidered potholders
by Karen Barbé... I have been away from my desktop for almost 8 weeks and it is good to be back and find my 'top sites' in safari ... Karen's blog
definitely is one of them.
are hand-embroidered with wool and backed with organic cotton. and I agree with Karen ... your kitchen would be so happy with one of these!

We've been having such gorgeous weather these past couple of weeks, that it has gotten me in the spring mood. My kitchen needs a major redo, but I can't afford that right now - so instead I like to daydream about what I'd love to put in it. Currently, anything spring like. Wind and Willow Home just opened a shop on etsy called Dipped, and it is love for me. All those gorgeous colors.
I love items being dipped, I am tempted to start dipping items in my own home to see how they would turn out. Such a simple and lovely idea.
Something more on the softer side of spring coloring, but just as inviting - the Pools Collection by Zoe Garred from Fleet. Each item is handmade in a stoneware ceramic.
I like these salt and pepper bowls by Paulova Ceramics. I think they would be a great housewarming gift, because they don't feel too style specific - just cute and fun.
Heath Ceramics even has a dinnerware set called spring, and I do love how light and neutral it is. I feel calm when I look at this set, and imagine it would be lovely sitting on some open kitchen shelving. - Tiffany King

I have been obsessed with enamelware for many years now, and have quite the collection. My pieces are all vintage though, and finding them is getting harder - not to mention the price has increased substantially from when I first started collecting. That is why Falcon Enamelware makes this girl's heart flutter!
My enamelware is the traditional ice white and blue rim, but Falcon has started to have some fun with this classic look by adding colors. I can't wait to see what they do next! - Tiffany King
If you would like to read a bit more about Vintage Enamel pieces just head over to this Special Read we wrote a couple of years back.

I saw these awesome bread spoons by Niels Datema, a student at Design Academy Eindhoven over at Handmade Charlotte, and had to share them with our Bloesem readers.
I love making bread, and the idea of having a spoon in the right amount for each separate ingredient, is a pretty fantastic idea.
How sweet are these hand sculpted bracelets and endangered birds.

Hello NEW week, hope your weekend was fun? Just a nice little start to get you in the mood for this week... only two items available in this etsy shop, but I like them both very much.... linen napkins and tea towels by Tara Muelu from Melbourne. She screenprinted pictures on linen...
