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).

Etsy Art I Heart: Typography & Quotes

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

Greetings friends! We had quite a busy weekend with family coming to stay for a memorial service for Matt’s grandmother and then the Superbowl yesterday, no doubt you were all as disappointed as we were with the game (snooze) but I LOVED Bruno Mars during the halftime show, he is so talented!

Don’t you think Downton Abbey is finally getting better this season? I watched last night’s episode and between Rose’s shenanigans and Alfred’s new opportunity and Mary’s suspicions and Edith’s predicament, I can’t wait to see what happens next. The banter between Isobel and the Dowager is so well done don’t you think? I have to rewind it each time they engage each other to hear it again. What do you think of the season so far? (No spoilers!)  

But back to business, I was browsing Etsy again for a few gifts and inspirational quotes and stumbled across several more artists that specialize in typography (this one strikes a chord with me) so I thought I’d feature some favorites today. Lovers of poetry, words, scripture, and inspirational sayings will appreciate these shops!   

Find beautiful poetry and frame worthy lyrics at Riverway Studios.

I’m a fan of the whimsical combination of photographs and type in Susannah Tucker’s shop.
