IKEA Find: The Trådig Bowl

I wouldn’t use it for salad but how great is the IKEA trådig bowl for fruit?

I haven’t seen it in North America yet…does anyone know when it is making its debut?

Oh – and in case anyone wanted to know – trådig means thread or stringy according to Google Translate.

White Cabana- To Go

OAS collection wallpapers drape the inside of this delightful White Cabana on wheels.

While researching for the wallpaper post appearing next week I found these lovely examples of wallpaper as the backdrop to various interiors of this oval white motor home trailer.

Wouldn’t you love a white cabana to go?

P.S. Thank you to Jordana here at White Cabana for taking me on this wonderful white blogging trip: I’ll go anywhere with you in this white white world!

Travel: Galerie Denise René in Paris

While strolling along the Boulevard St. Germain on the Left Bank (Rive Gauche), I came across the Galerie Denise René. The current exhibit is Anne Blanchet‘s light drawings all in white and I was instantly attracted.

Travel: Paris’ Marché aux Puces

Paris is full of history – obvious enough, right? For a walk through the past, visit the Marché aux Puces at the Porte de Clignancourt. Furniture, clothing, accessories and every day knick-knacks from periods gone by are housed in this large antique market at the edge of Paris. The atmosphere is lively and busy and there are plenty of things to grab (and keep!) your attention for hours.

For a bite to eat and some Edith Piaf entertainment, visit Chez Louisette.

Travel: Paris Statues in the Jardin de Tuileries

This week, I am happy to share some of the photos I took while I was in Paris last week. Paris continues to be a vibrant, engaging and impressive city and I am always happy to return.

I hope all our White Cabana readers enjoy this week in Paris!

Let’s begin with a few classic statues from the Jardin de Tuileries.
