John Derian for Target

I just love all the housewares designed by John Derian for Target for fall 2010. The old-fashioned charm of good penmanship plates, bust silhouettes, fruit and fauna and the like bring a sweet sophistication to each piece in the collection. I got the moth storage drawer, for my desk area. I have my eye on a stationary set, which includes red wax seals and lovely papers and cards--which I would probably never use! But they are so pretty, maybe I would be inspired to send some hand-written letters. Perhaps that was his intention, right? To encourage us to slow down and remember how lovely it is to create something by hand. Yes, indeed.
