Top Three Thursdays

on
Allow me to indulge my love of Halloween this week by pointing out a couple of my favorite items on Etsy for this week’s Top Three Thursday. My Halloween decor has definitely fallen off as our children have aged and left the house. My husband has always found my love of pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns an [...] [Read More]

Handmade Pottery Wonderfulness

on
A vase of flowers is always a great way to perk up a room — or its owner for that matter! Who doesn’t feel better surrounded by flowers? These whimsical vases from Frances Palmer caught my eye recently. Each of her handmade pieces are deliberately asymmetrical, with quirky misaligned fluting. You can get her work [...] [Read More]

New website alert: Harabu House is dedicated to modern living, global flair and has a ton of items to make your home special.

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]

Branching Out

on
Branch Home always has interesting eco-friendly, sustainable goodies on their site. This seating combo from Kalon Studios caught my eye. Inspired by trees, it’s made in Gardner, MAss., once known as the chair capital of the world. Where the community once supported 5,000 craftspeople, it now has fewer than 350.
