Midcentury Hedgehog

Like tons of other people these days, I've been really interested in midcentury design. I love the clean simple lines and general aesthetic, and wow, what gorgeous furniture came out of this period!

So, today I did a search on Etsy for "midcentury" (unlike many of my other searches where I frequently type in "hedgehog"), and lo and behold, a midcentury hedgehog appears. And just like the midcentury design tenets of form + function dictate, this little hedgie is also a toothpick holder!

You've got to check him out here.

And an amazing tablecloth!

As I continued my "midcentury" Etsy search, I came across this amazing tablecloth with birds and flowers in a Miro or Calder-esque kind of style. If I could be sure I could use it without getting spaghetti sauce on it, it just might have been mine.
