Lest We Forget

Today is Anzac Day in Australia. A public holiday celebrated with drinking copious amounts of beer on pub crawls and gambling money by the fistful in 2 up. But the real reason behind Anzac Day is to remember, respect and say thank you to all the war veterans that have made our laid back and carefree Australian lifestyle possible. It is a day we remember the sacrifices that were made and recognize how truly blessed we are today.

So for this post I have something special for you, Vanitas by Ridder & Clown. Although this collection is not yet available for purchase, its concept and execution is so beautiful that I felt it was still worthy of inclusion.

Vanitas is a collection of four objects to be used to show respect during a ceremony for someone who has passed. A vase to capture petals as they fall from the flower, a segmented candle which parts become fused as you add segments per week in remembrance, the Register of Attendance with a serrated page that allows you to also write something to place with the passed or my personal favourite, the bubble blower. A beautiful, poetic way for children to say their goodbyes and send your loved one on their way.

Life is magical, Life is fleeting.

Lest we Forget.
