Today I was lucky to find one of Marianne Westman's big, beautiful old Picknick platters, originally designed in 1954 for Rörstrand, in the local thrift store. It's in perfect condition and we already used it this evening for herbs and salads for our Vietnamese spring rolls - but it is also beautiful in itself, let alone in the window sill.

Below, another find: A fine little embroidered spectacle case for my sunglasses (today it was snowy again, but I do hope for spring and sunglasses soon!)

And for Vietnam inspiration see this site and programme that a close friend of us produced :)
