Gift Ideas from Etsy

Tuesday, November 25th, 2014

This week there are competing ideas swirling around in our heads: gift giving and turkey dinner making! I love the handmade quality of gifts from Etsy, they’re more unique than big brand items which add that extra special touch.

It’s a few days until "small business Saturday" but don’t let it stop you from shopping small business now! Here’s a look at some of my favorite gift ideas from Etsy.

P.S. Is anyone else shocked at how big box stores have completely taken over Thanksgiving? I saw Kmart is opening is doors at 6 a.m. on Thanksgiving and so many others on Thanksgiving afternoon. Ugh! Makes me crazy…

Etsy Art I Heart: Ceramics

Monday, May 5th, 2014

Oh hello! We had such a great weekend! We finished up a fun DIY project (I’ll feature it next week, you’ll love it!) and yesterday we took a drive out to the coast for clam chowder and to watch sunset, one of our favorite family outings. We did some gardening too, everything is sprouting in the yard. Matt and I walk around outside in the evenings with a glass of wine and we talk to and about the plants, which ones are thriving, which ones need a little food or pruning while the kids run around like crazy.

All homes need something living inside but even if you don’t have a green thumb, low maintenance succulents or air plants will survive with little water and attention. This month’s Etsy artist feature is all about ceramics and pottery, these planters and chic decorative objects are handmade accessories that look lovely on a desktop, styled on a bookcase, or anywhere you envision unique original pieces, enjoy the roundup!

I love pottery with modern touches, like these bowls, jars and vessels at Red Raven Studios. (I bought the horseshoe).
