Do you also find it amusing? -that we all rush around like squirrels gathering the last nuts on earth before the holidays then we get loads of things that we want/ don’t want and immediately afterwards we feel this need to purge our homes and our lives and vow for the next year to never buy anything we don’t absolutely need. And so naturally. I’m showing you stuff today. But – stuff that isn’t a cheap and cheerful. Stuff that is both necessary and an investment. Stuff you have to really mean to buy.
I’m going to do it – really, I’m going to live with less this year, but I’m going to love everything I purchase and I’m going to try my best to purchase locally and most definitely from independent artists.
#1 – I love this house. It’s been around the blog world a bit, but I wanted to take a minute and talk about it’s blatant juxtaposition. I love rustic and ancient and I love clean and modern. I like that this house is totally balls out honest. I’d love to dance in a glass room like that.
I love my little farmhouse, and while it doesn’t have a glass room for dancing, it does have an immense amount of work put into it with love and dedication. It’s a good house with a strong heart. I’m going to keep working on her this year.
But the potter that truly captured my heart is Lars Soendergaard. He’s had it since I picked up a copy of British Country living in 2005. It’s a good thing I don’t seem to waver – since my taste doesn’t run cheap.
I love matte glazes. I’ll be on the hunt for a local version that looks something like these in the coming year.
If my trusty leather backpacks ever wear out – I’m saving all my pennies for one of these by a.b.k. leather:
i am, of course, in love with all of this. especially the house and the plates. *sigh*
