small objects

I have a love/hate relationship with blue. A lot of the time, light blue just fills me with loathing. On the other hand, the color that’s called lapis lazuli, after the stone, stills me and that’s really something!

And like many of us, I am often drawn to small objects.

What is it about little things? It’s almost like they bring out some primeval mothering instinct in us. 

This small, blue salt cellar is from Kindred Black, a company I have mentioned in the past. For years, my husband and I have been using a salt cellar instead of a shaker. If salt is as unhealthy as most people believe, I think using a salt cellar is smart.

Rather than endlessly shaking small grains of salt that you can’t even see, a salt cellar gives you more control. After using a cellar for years, I can almost count the grains with my finger tips. I also never use regular table salt, I only use coarse, kosher salt, and I swear that it tastes better and you need less.

And really, who wouldn’t want a sweet, little salt cellar like this one on their table? But what would you call this color? Leslie?

Dear Readers

I’m sure it’s apparent that I’m changing the way I do things on this blog/zine on a regular basis. I feel good about the curation, webzine direction I’m going in. Lately I’ve even thought of extending the idea and only publishing once a week, or even just once a month? Please let me know what you think.
