Bob’s Your Uncle sent a photo of their booth from the NYIGF last week, which was fun to look at – I spot melamine plates!
Founded in Boston by English couple Michele and Martin Yeeles, Bob’s Your Uncle is an old British expression meaning “Everything’s Fine”. Cute fact, huh? I guess that is how you always want to appear when working – calm, carefree, no worries. Beneath the surface though, you haven’t slept in days and you’re stressed to the max.
I love the folders marked “Limbo” and the cute honey bear melamine plates. Their kids placemats are cute because they’re packaged as tear off sheets and each one has a recipe on it written by a child (those are not new, but I like them just the same). If you’d like to shop for their products online, here’s a list of online stores for you to choose from.
I’m insanely attracted to the work of Steven Harrington. I would own everything he creates if I could. I especially want the peacock screenprint below, but I’m afraid he has sold out. The man just oozes with talent, I imagine he walks around with this amazing aura of positivity and bursting with energy. Look at these illustrations, and the colors, this is serious talent, people! I know I’m gushing, but sheesh… I’m smitten. These are the times when I wish an oxygen mask would pop down from the ceiling and save me. Deep breathe, Holly.

After looking for Maura’s red chandelier yesterday (still no luck, can you help?), I discovered a whole slew of lighting websites that I’d not come across before, so thanks for the challenge, Maura!
This is exactly why I keep blogging despite how little I sleep or eat lately (smile), I love the thrill of the hunt. I think I have over 5,000 product websites in my personal database so far. For instance, I stumbled upon Shine Home yesterday, and love it! They have the neatest glass pendants, so retro cute, and I just adore the green Olivia shown below (left). Grace would look splendid in an entryway (middle), as would Jayne (right). Did you notice the chain links on them? Stylin’!
They even produce vases.
