Queenie's Treasury

Happy Sunday, kids. It's a zany day here on the Upper East Side, where we're hosting the Puerto Rican Day Parade. I'm hoping to make it over to Central Park for a bit of R&R (and to try out my new beach blanket), but, in the meantime, how about we check out this week's Treasury?

These crazy cool ceramic cups are the first of two gilded items on offer today. They're made by Studiomake, and have irregular, gold-plated rims. I can't imagine what it might feel like to drink out of one, but I wouldn't mind the opportunity to try, either. So pretty.

Next, a little hop across the pond to Paris, where French hipsters have discovered the wonders of the food truck. In a town where it's still hard to find a cup of coffee to go, places where you have eat standing up - or on the nearest bench - are a novelty, and considered "très Brooklyn." Just the latest chapter in Paris' love-hate relationship with American culture, n'est-ce pas?

Finally, the second of our gilded roundup: Brown Paper Design's notebook set. Like the cups, these are rendered in an array of neutral colors, like brown and grey, then finished off and glammed up with gold foil. I think one of these in my bag would result in endless inspiration and jottings.
