Kråkerøy Vase


I stumbled on this sweet little vase on eBay.  The maker is Kråkerøy Keramikk, and it looks like a souvenir piece for Fredrikstad, Norway, although I don't know what the design is showing.  It has the original sticker and is marked on the bottom with KK.



The little heart looks like it might be an artist's signature.

Elle Plates

I recently got these four Elle plates, all shape number 550 but with different decos.


I love this one, designed by Birgitte Skyttern.



These two (above and below) have the same pattern but different colors, and are by Harald Lahn.

Rolf Berg Viking Ship


Every so often I'll come across a Rolf Berg piece that I've never seen before.  I love this Viking on a ship!

Drinks

Some summer libations.



The wine coaster is Norwegian pewter by Havstad Tinn - marked on the bottom with the company name and "93% T".


Ikea has had some really fun glassware designs the last few years, which means that we have a lot of cocktail glasses.  We had margaritas the other evening in these fun glasses.


A few months ago I posted about how cold it was.  Today it was 116º warmer!  But nothing cools you off like a negroni on the patio in an icy Ultima Thule glass.

Figgjo Flint - Rhubarb Sauce


I made the Grilled Rhubarb Vanilla Honey Sauce as a topping for ice cream for a Memorial Day picnic at my parent's house - the rhubarb is from their garden.  The recipe is from the My New Roots blog (slightly altered by me with the addition of some strawberries, which I also grilled).  Served in a newer Figgjo Flint bowl that I got for my birthday last year.
