i still catch myself dreaming about being a photographer sometimes. (you know, photography was my major in college before i fell in love with ceramics …)
so i created this pinboard a while back on pinterest, and i’ve been filling it with, what i consider to be the perfectly styled photograph– the stuff that really catches my eye. here are a few of my favorites …
i sold my favorite piece in the shop today. the little gem that stood out among the rest … i hope to be making more using this technique once i get my wheel. (oh yeah!!!)
i’m reminded how great it feels to be doing something that i love …
i have one word for this week’s best thing, geode.
all are from my newest favorite etsy shop, vntage queen.
these things matter to me, like the painted handles of wooden spoons.
this is a beautiful bowl, from masa ceramics– a collaboration project between italian sculptress clara graziolino and the venezuelan designer and illustrator maria virginia montiel.
luke surprised me with yet another christmas gift this year, with a subscription to dwell magazine! i love it! its like getting a little gift once a month. seeing as how i’ve never had a magazine subscription before, (isn’t that strange?? who am i??) this is extra exciting for me.
and on wednesday, luke’s mom surprised me with the most gorgeous piece of kitchen equipment i have ever laid eyes on. a kitchenaid mixer in the most perfect dandelion hue. i still can’t believe it’s mine. i never thought i’d own a kitchenaid mixer! so all of these new things have given me this late christmasy feeling, and has got my heart all a flutter … i’m reminded again how lucky i am to know luke and his amazing family.
