Pastel Patina

Wooden eggcups painted by Noodle and Lou

You might like to take a look at UK company Patchwork Harmony's* vintage section where I came across these pretty pastel finds (these colourful chaps are rather nice too).

Vintage wooden house blocks

Vintage wooden Alphabet tiles

I also love the beautiful work of Pastel Toys, a toy factory based in the Kishorit Kibbutz in Israel.
These toys are handmade by people with special needs and have both a timeless and modern feel to them.

Pastel Toys have an online shop in English, as well as supplying other stores around the world, including The Tribe, in Australia.
