Jugendstil





We'd never pass up a cool yard sale find just because it was designed with a child in mind, but lately we've been ramping it up a bit since we'll be joined by our own child around Christmas.

From the top: 
Excellent Jugenstyle poster by the great Seymour Chwast, for his and Steven Heller's "Design & Style" series. Jugenstyle translates from the German as"Youth Style" ("Art Nouveau"). 

Old toy submarine, the kind that sink to the bottom. I think there's a trick with baking soda which makes it resurface, but I'm not sure. 

1950's Bugs Bunny t-shirt. 

Spiel Naef wooden toys from Switzerland - the stacking pointy blocks were at the bottom of a cardboard box of other wooden blocks from the flea market and the box of Kugelbau was from a yard sale. The Dala horses are from various places, found one at a time until before we knew it we had a whole herd.
