I love these handmade vases and tumblers made by Emily Reinhardt from Omaha. They are simultaneously chic and retro and would be beautiful with just a single blossom – just as a small vase should. Her ceramic deli-style tumblers make me want to break out my egg cream soda recipe (add vanilla) that no one but myself seems to like. She has quite a few beautiful objects to peruse at her shop on Etsy: The Object Enthusiast.
When I was a young man, no bigger than this
A chocolate egg cream was not to be missed
Some U-bet’s chocolate syrup, seltzer water mixed with milk
You stir it up into a heady fro, tasted just like silk
You scream, I steam, we all want egg cream.
