( friday favorites: new dominion blues )

May 21, 2010

opening an etsy shop has changed my life in many wonderful ways,
but perhaps my favorite part has been meeting so many genuine & caring people.
tracy, of new dominion blues, popped her head in to say hallo, 
and we've been fast friends ever since.

 tracy's first love is pottery, and her work is characterized
by rich glazes and a very organic feel.
i'm very proud to have several of her pieces in my home.
{ including a beautiful mug which i reserve for my afternoon latte...
makes me feel like i'm having coffee with a friend! }

but she also loves vintage.
and i've loved watching her shop evolve
as she's added more and more of her unique finds.
she has a great eye for design and it shows in her
beautiful shop styling.

yesterday i found myself enthralled with these two
utterly charming displays found in tracy's home studio.

the plant growing through the tines of the old rake? perfect.
{ and did you notice the old keys tucked among the tines? }
and calipers, repurposed as a towel holder?
so. damned. smart.

find tracy's pottery and vintage finds in her new dominion blues etsy shop.
and find some great reading & inspiration on her blog

3 notes:

  1. i love tracy's shop! beautiful photos. happy to be pointed in the direction of her blog, too.

  2. Well hi! What a lovely surprise! I agree that the best thing about doing the Etsy thing is the folks you "meet." And you're certainly among my favorites, too. :) So much of my inspiration comes from the creativity of the fellow shop owners and bloggers I've come to know. Thanks for the tip of the hat, and for your friendship!
