Ceramic love

Lately us Zana girls have been attending pottery classes… Its so much fun and I’m really enjoying it!

We started with the good ol’ pinch pots so what we have created so far has been rather basic, but that’s ok because most of the ceramics I love are really basic shapes with beautifully detailed paint work, I’m totally excited for that step…

Here are a few of the ceramic loves I’ve been obsessing over.

Etsy Roundup – Sun kissed lemon, nude and moss green

HAPPY FRIDAY!

Like I said last time I did an etsy roundup the round ups this year have a new look and feel which I’m totally excited about! I’m still selecting a few of my favourite Etsy finds, but keeping them in the theme of colour combinations… Today I’m all about sun kissed lemon, nude and moss green

Etsy Roundup – Pastels and gold

Last week I discovered an inspiring small business interview with Yvonne Ellen on Etsy. I absolutely love the concept of her store and the way she adapts and re-uses precious bone china sourced at markets around England giving them new life. See more of my last weeks discovered links here.

Sooo, there was no doubt that this weeks Etsy round up had to be based around this drunken little tea cup (no.3 above)… I also just love the pastels and matalic colour combo.

Ps: Still loving my new Etsy round up format? I am… See older ones here, here and here.

Etsy Roundup – Black, white and taupe

Today’s Etsy round up is a goodie, a classic colour combo.

I love how the natural hue of taupe softens the contrast of the black and white. The taupe colour can be found in so many different materials namely leather, timber, paper, natural linens… The list goes on.

The new Etsy roundups are a more refined selection of items you could incorporate into your home, an event or accessorize with.

Ps: I managed 3 blog posts this week, BOOM! I’m back into my routine. :)

Happy Friday!! I’m getting into the swing of things and posts are becoming slowly but surely more regular.. YAY right? About time, its FEBRUARY 7th! (and tomorrow is my birthday! Double YAY!)
