Queenie's Treasury

Happy weekend, my doves! I'm spending this weekend out in the country - well, OK, the 'burbs. My friend Ellie invited me out to spend the weekend at her parents' house in our Connecticut hometown, and I'm enjoying the excellent company, gorgeous greenery and...pool! But before I put my sunhat on and run back to the lounger, it's time for this week's Treasury!

First up, a look at Jim Datz's amazing, destined-for-iconic-status Brooklyn and Manhattan posters. Inspired by vintage signage from the 1940s and '50s, Datz has created two posters showing the (approximate) arrangement of neighborhoods in my two favorite boroughs. My friend Miya has already purchased the Brooklyn poster to hang in her new Prospect Heights digs; I think I just might need one of each.

I may have already found my dream kitchen, but that doesn't mean I can't still admire the others from afar. I'm a little bit obsessed with this kitchen's combination of green paint, wood and white subway tile. And the cookware collection ain't bad, either. One last note: is that a papier-mache donkey's head on the island? As in, Bottom's costume? Because, if so? Props. (Via the always-excellent The Goodie Life.)

Last but not least, a very dangerous destination for all things paper-related. Prints, stationery - you name it, Felt & Wire sells the best of it. This silkscreen Mokka print would look great in that green kitchen, no? Synchronicity, folks. Synchronicity.

@Aron: I can't get enough subway tile, ever. By the way, I LOVE your blog - it's wonderful!
