Hoarding animal figurines, that is. I've found a few good ones recently, and now I'm on a roll. They just make me smile.
Items above for sale in the shop: dachshund piggy bank / brass owl trio / hand painted driftwood bird / cast metal bull
My very favorite figurine find of late is this metal bear with chippy paint. I love him so much I can't bring myself to put him up for sale. I think he's just the bees knees.

After more marathon thrifting, the shop is stocked up! I'm headed to a new flea market this Sunday in New Hampshire, so there should be even more goodies come to next week. You can browse the goods over at Little Dog Vintage. Happy weekend!
Items above: Indian weaving, pottery lamp, copper tea set, farm scene painting

I've been waiting on the urge to write for months now. Waiting and waiting, but the urge just doesn't come. Life is full and happy, and tearing myself away to sit down and write a post hasn't appealed.
And that is good.
The blog was for me more than anyone during my time in Vermont. I needed it then. Vermont became lonely (the understatement of the year), and blogging turned out to be one of the best ways to connect. But I don't need it anymore. I'm surrounded by friends, coworkers, a wonderful boyfriend, and seas of people in Boston. A line from a book I'm currently reading sums it up better than I ever could:
"I've emerged from a dark tunnel and found myself in the middle of a carnival."
That doesn't mean I won't keep this space going in some way, I just haven't figured out exactly what that will look like yet. I love sharing pictures and thoughts and projects, and I intend to continue with that, but I wanted to shed light on why the posting has been so slim recently. I just don't need it like I did before. And that's a very very good thing.

WHAT: 20% off everything in the shop
WHEN: November 27-30
HOW: Use coupon code BLACK20 at checkout
Folks, I promise this blog isn't going to turn into a sale announcement forum, even though that's what it may seem like recently. I have a few posts lined up that have nothing to do with hocking my wares, so stay tuned for those. In the meantime, Happy Thanksgiving to those celebrating! I am having a potluck Friendsgiving this year followed by a ping pong tournament and a screening of Elf on a giant projector. Feeling good about this whole thing.

I discovered the beautiful Danish shop Stilliben via Ilemarini's Instagram feed this week. Located in Copenhagen, the shop is run by two ceramicists and features hand curated items from Danish and international artists. The aesthetic is right up my alley and I feel in love with so many items in the shop. Below are a selection of my favorites, but there's much more to see in their online shop. Enjoy!
