Etsy Favorites

Posted below are some of my recent favorites available on Etsy. It was hard to decide on which to feature since I have so many! 


I think the Bird Vase by JMRPottery would need to have a shelf all to its own! This beautiful bowl/vase is made out of redstone clay on a potter's wheel by Julie M. Rowe from North Carolina. I love the green glaze and the bird is just too sweet. 

              Sea Urchin Ring by Staroftheeast                               

The Sea Urchin Ring by StarOfTheEast is absolutely gorgeous! I love things inspired by nature and especially by the sea.  StarOfTheEast is a lovely mother and daughter team, Esther and Estella, from Turkey. Their work is so unique and inspirational!


I always start my mornings with a cup of tea with lemon and sugar. The first thing I do when I wake up is walk straight to the kitchen and fire up the teapot. So when I saw this teapot charm by MDSparks on Etsy you can imagine how excited I was. Her shop is filled with unique and whimsical pieces!


The denim skirt by Trapperjane , a one women show from Victoria, B.C., Canada,  is inspiring me to take a bike trip out in the country. I love it's A-line design!  All her clothing looks so comfortable and flattering. They are also so beautifully photographed!

The Pesky Cat's Day Dream

Katzenhohle by Dornroeschen Filzunikate I recently came across this incredible cat bed made by German artist Dornroeschen Filzunikate. This beautiful piece of functional art called a Katzenhohle , cat cave, is handmade of felted wool. It's definitely the most unique cat bed I have ever seen. It would bring a bit of nature into my urban NYC home. I think my Anni would love a cat cave although her favorite spots right now are the pillow behind my head in bed, a straw basket that was meant to store magazines and a storage box made from fabric that becomes a hammock when she sleeps in it. My sweet Anni FOX 5 Update : A while back I wrote a post about a story that Fox 5 news was doing on Etsy and the handmade market. I was interviewed in my studio as part of the feature. An Etsy press agent recently informed me that the story aired April 15th and he also missed it. He said he is trying to get a copy of it from the studio. I'll be sure to post a link to it when it becomes ava

Freezing in Florida

I'm back from my week long vacation in St. Augustine, Florida. Founded in 1565, it is the oldest established city and the oldest port in the continental United States. My partner Tom and I stayed at a oceanfront hotel located on St. Augustine Beach, just 3.7 miles from historic downtown St. Augustine, with views of the sea and the sound of crashing waves from our room. The weather was quite cool for this time of the year with an average temperature in the low to mid 50's but we enjoyed exploring downtown, walks on the beach and having an indoor pool and hot tub to relax in. The hotel had an area with a glass wind barrier that made it warm enough to lie in the sun, even with a bathing suit on, in 50 degree weather. Walks on the beach required socks with sandals most days, yes I know that is a big fashion faux pas but I made it work with matching socks. I must say that I did not miss the hustle and bustle of NYC at all and throughly enjoyed the relaxation and peace. Today in NY
