Putting vintage enamleware on my DO WANT list. This sweet turquoise server from Object of Beauty has sold but there is plenty more to tempt me!

Hello San Francisco by Buddy Guy

Buddy Guy’s music does things to me. Seriously- I just- I can’t even use my words.

Sugar Pie Desanto’s version is pretty cool too. It can be found along with some other cool tracks on this blues playlist. Makes me think I should start DJing blues events.
