One of my favorite recent Christmas presents is the set of vintage Pink Pig Salt and Pepper Shakers that I received from a neighbor. These little guys are so adorable that I have not even been able to take then as far as the kitchen. Instead, they sit on my beside table, so that I can see them as soon as I wake up each morning and get my daily squee out of the way. Squee!
Just so nobody gets confused, the girl pig (with the red bow) has an S on her back for Salt, and the boy pig has P for Pepper! Helpful!
Don’t forget that next week, on February 5th, we will be celebrating Chinese New Year, ushering in the Year of The Pig! Yay!
OK, you can probably tell that this not a “proper” Pink Origami Dinosaur but, rather, what is meant to appear as a Dinosaur Wrapped in Pink Paper, as if it were gift waiting under the Christmas Tree! Other pink-wrapped gifts include a Guitar, a Swan Pool Floatie, a Globe, a Bicycle and a Cactus, among other items easily identified by their distinctive shapes.
It’s all part of a fun Holiday display that I spotted at H&M Clothing Store on 5th Avenue and 48th Street in Manhattan!
This holiday season, Hugo Boss joins forces with artist Jeremyville on a new capsule collection and campaign. Sleek Boss design collides with playful Jeremyville artwork in a limited-edition collection, featuring a cityscape inhabited by a unique cast of characters. Jeremyville’s adorable abstract characters — most notably the artist’s iconic Pink Bunny — also infiltrate the store’s front window and interior displays.

The only reason I happened to walk by this dismantled Pink Desk, abandoned at the curb of an East Village side street waiting to be carried off to the landfill, is that it was a public holiday and I had an appointment with a plate of Perogi at Veselka. If you look closely, you’ll see a pair of horn-shaped protuberances peaking out from behind the drawer, which has been pulled out and laid on the desk surface, and you can extrapolate that this was once a young girl’s Vanity table that is now missing its mirror.
I bet it was well-loved by its previous owner. Maybe, after I went on my way, someone picked it up and took it home to make a few repairs and give it a new life. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
