Obsessions, Recipes

In Which I Unite Beautiful Objects and Lou Reed

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.

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.

    1. You’re more than welcome – it’s beautiful stuff! I was sorry to hear about Lou Reed as well – what a career he had!
