Peek. Bought. Handmade.


Today, as part of our series to peek into our own collections of handmade pieces from other artisans, I'm delighted to share some of our favorite pieces. Please take a moment to check out the other posts in our ongoing series here.

A beautiful handbuilt pottery bowl by Marci from MarciG has found a home in the center of our dining table - it calls out to be held and admired, and brings such lovely color to our table even when the gardens are frozen over.

Oh, and those handmade custom pink stone bracelets on those little hands are by Michele from steinschmuckdesign. In just the right shade ("hot pink of course", says my daughter) and on elastic string so she can put them on and off herself.


On our couch we have a pair of handprinted ABC pillow shams by London's HelenRawlinson, screenprinted with eco friendly inks on organic cotton. Not only beautiful to look at, but great for learning too.


And here is one of my first Etsy purchases - a sweet pear pair in mustard by pillowhappy I gifted to my husband one Valentine's Day some years ago. I love them sitting on the chair my the window in our play/family/relaxing space. Filled with beans, they are textural and fun to hold. And they remind us of our October wedding years ago - we chose pears as a theme and used them in the place of flowers.
