This week, I have been obsessing about … apples. Their shape and graphic green or red have provided countless visual opportunities. Added to that, they are omnipresent in everyday’s speech and idiomatic phrases: the Big Apple, a rotten apple, “ the apple of [someone]’s eye” , the forbidden fruit, to compare apples and oranges, an apple of discord and so forth! I found this gorgeous paper weight last Tuesday at the amazing Sunbury Antiques Market and my apple fixation was revived!

A while ago, I had not resisted this cute tape measure (which the leaf pulls out = very useful!) on ebay.

I’m lusting about this red apple crystal paperweight by John Derian at Liberty:

This golden apple from MaisysMarket

And this adorable brass apple box from greenhearts

This gorgeous apple brooch from KatcherrFancy reminds me that I once bought a big chunky silver apple brooch brooch on a trip to NYC, which I had found rather fitting at the time!

And I have to admit that I do like Alice Temperley apple bags:

Well, they say an apple a day keeps the doctor away!
