Poppy Talk is a Canadian blog dedicated to handmade and vintage design, it’s really good, you should check it out. Each year they announce the winners of The Poppy Awards for artists and shops in different categories. I was immediately drawn to the best vintage shop category and had to compulsively check each and everyone of the nominees, just for fun. Tons of beautiful and inspiring items. I was especially impressed by the Russian green bag for eggs (!) – genius (Oleg said they had one when they lived back in Russia).

One of the things I always do when I visit my parents, is rummaging through the closets, looking for old clothes and other forgotten objects. This time I found this light blue button down shirt that is made of the softest fabric. I’m constantly looking for my mother’s old clothes, she always looks stylish in her pictures from the 60′s and 70′s (it’s so strange: I just noticed I have a very similar bag to the one she’s holding in the picture below).
I’m currently reading (again, otherwise it doesn’t stick to my brain) Flaubert’s ‘Madame Bovary’. When I leaf through French Vogue I turn into a little Emma, fantasizing about lounging lazily in a dark blue Lanvin dress, drinking champagne in my fabulous Paris apartment. Actually lounging lazily in my Tel Aviv apartment, leafing through French Vogue isn’t that bad either. Another Bovary inspired piece coming soon.
