David collects things from his childhood. I collect things I have fallen in love with as an adult. The Cathrineholm lotus enamel is one example. I wish I could claim my Scandinavian heritage as the reason why I'm drawn to them. But my Swedish mother filled her kitchen with the American craze - Tupperware. Parties and all. I suspect my mom would assume I was referring to a person and not a product if I said the name.
My kitchen has grown brighter since I started to collect Cathrineholm. The colorful pattern helps, but surrounding yourself with things you love is the truth of the matter.
Below is a groovy postcard David found at a vintage paper fair. If only they were still that cheap.
