The top 10 posts of 2011

OBJECT <> PLASTICHappy New Year!  If you haven’t stopped by my blog before, welcome.  If you have, thank you for coming back.  Three years of researching and writing  have definitely improved my knowledge of vintage plastic design.  I’ve also learned a lot about blogging, HTML, and web design in the process.

New for 2012:  I have started a Facebook page for Object Plastic.  So go ahead and click “like” up there and be a part of the conversation.  I’ll be depressed if by February the counter is still at zero.  Also, if there is a piece of plastic design that you feel should be included here, consider writing a guest post.

Life seems full of countdowns this time of year, so I thought I would add my own.  Here are the top 10 Object Plastic posts from 2011 based on pageviews.


La Bomba picnic set by Villeroy & Boch.  Makes me want to head off to a meadow somewhere and picnic in style.
