One of the most gorgeous food blogs ever...

It is images like these that keep me returning
to Cannelle et Vanille. It might have something
to do with the food too.
Please click on these amazing images
to view their beautiful details. Better yet,
visit Cannelle et Vanille and view all the
food, life & photography they have to offer.

Making an entrance...

Whimsical and functional — what a great
combination for a home's introduction.

Captured Silverware...

Red Wine
White Wine
These whimsical glasses from Anthropologie
feature vintage utensils trapped inside
mouth-blown glass. Without proper silverware,
how long could man live by red wine alone?

Prop & Circumstance...

Here's a little divine prop intervention via Gutsto.
The gnarled rags and balanced scissors create such
a pretty still life.
Texture is vital when styling. Knitted yarns, leather,
concrete, and wood make such a pleasing mix.
Sometimes the simplified placement of things creates
the most strikingly graphic displays.

The Swiss Army Blanket...

Once stored in the caves of the Swiss Alps, these vintage
Swiss Army Blankets are now available through Deken.
Made of pure sheep's wool, the blankets come in various
shades of grey-brown and are marked with a
red and white cross-track.
The blankets are individually marked with the initials of
the maker — as well as the the year of production.
These blankets are proof that there is beauty in utility.
