Falling for Fall

on
I know, I know it’s not officially fall yet, but the allure of pumpkin and autumn decor is a pretty strong pull for me post-Labor Day so I offer up one teeny visual to get you inspired. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be at a dinner gathering or party that featured even just a […] [Read More]

Map It!

on
I have a member of my family — okay two actually — who are map fiends and for whom these plates would be perfect.

Top Three Thursdays

This handmade ceramic vase with sgraffito drawing from Luster Wear caught my eye while trolling through Etsy‘s fabulousness to find goodies for you for Top Three Thursdays.

Top Three Thursdays

I fell in love with this unusual curio bowl carved from black walnut found in the Etsy shop of Gray Work Designs. I just love the shape and sheen of this. I want to reach out and touch it. Added bonus: the wood is sustainably harvested. The bowl, which apparently is available in other woods […] [Read More]
