recipe box

You know, it's been a while since I coveted anything. I'm trying not to want things too much these days. I saw this last weekend, though, and it is On My Mind.
Hmm. It's nicer in person. My mother had an old, black recipe file box filled with her notecards and clipped recipes. It went mouldy, and I have them all crammed into a nice French toffee tin my mother in law gave me once, but they don't quite fit. This would be a perfect new generation thing. It felt just right.

I don't know what it is about Orla Keily. It's the sort of design I would have hated when I was young, I would have rejected the orange, and the sixtiesness... but now, there's just something beautiful about her designs.

I want the pencil box too...
