I have been so lucky working on packaging designs for various snacks these past months and in the meantime the weather has turned into a cold late summer, it feels like Fall – windy, moody + rainy. This gives us plenty of excuses to go inside snacking on mmmm … all sweet-salty-spicy-yummi and very, very crunchy … I found all above tasty + delicious packages at Dean&Deluca’s snackshop: smoked organic Califonia paprika almonds, Vermont cheese powder for homemade popcorn or savory crunchy crostini slides, Mast brothers dark chocolate & sea salt (my favorite!), and popcorn with parmesan & rosemary – let it rain, let it rain!

So great – crisp paper memos. From Fancy, design by SpiffThing.
I have 3-4-5 different types of salt in my kitchen – actually I’m not sure how many. The latest one I bought in France. Not a designer fancy one just a simple Sel de Fine – it is a plain very fine sea salt. It is not too fine, not too salty, just perfect plain sea salt. I kind of regret not having bought a few! Perfect for my eggs in the morning. Some of my friends really have a laugh over me when I start explaining the differences in all my types of salt (nerd!) but they smile when they taste them in a nice combo with the right kinds of food. On my dinner table I always have a tiny bowel of sea salt flakes from Camargue in France. But the above ones are very good types too I think. And great packaging designs too.
Pictured salts above and down: 1) Flor de Sel 2) Smoked Sea Salt 3) Sal de Ibiza.
These days it is summer… July… it should be warm, high sky and loads of sun!! But not here in Copenhagen. Copenhagen Jazz Festival is all over and it helps a lot! Is it bit cold, rainy, windy and heavy grey sky. I am a true optimist and have planned a picnic in Kongens Have (freely transalated: The King’s Garden!) which is full of jazz bands during the festival, I believe the sun will join us too. Love to have the bike trailer packed with the above picnic serving goodies! Tiffin Lunch Box Set, Heller Dinnerware Set, Vipp Salt and Pepper Mill Set + some Hay tea towels – all found here.
