While you are in the neighborhood...

pinch pot, 2009 (1 of 3 (update, now 1 of 2) currently available in my etsy shop)

Have you ever felt overwhelmed by the wide variety of items available on Etsy? It happens. There is a lot of good stuff going on over there.

Fear not. The wise folks at Etsy have created a solution.

I'm fairly new to Etsy, but thanks to Tracy over at New Dominion Blues Studios I
just learned that Etsy creates gift guides. gets better. Tracy and I were both featured in Etsy's Gift Guide for the Home Chef.
They chose one of my little pinch pots. It's a lovely selection and I'm honored to have been included.
update--good news and bad news: 
It seems when my featured bowl sold I was replaced in the guide by another Etsy seller.  I'm glad the bowl sold so quickly, but it would have been fun to stay in the guide a little longer.

It is that gift giving time of year... Forget the malls, they haven't been fun since Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

Pop on over and take a look at all of the wonderful handmade and vintage items available on Etsy. Wander through the array of Etsy Gift Guides and stop by and visit my shop while you are in the neighborhood. I've just added 3 new "ruffle bowls".

Have fun!


  1. One of my goals this Christmas is to buy stuff from artists and small businesses when I can! Your ceramics are beautiful!

  2. Oh congratulations! I adore your handmade stuff. So gorgeous!

  3. congrats ! deserved attention!

    etsy makes my head spin. it truly does.

  4. Roysie, So good to know! Thank you.

    Alexandria, You are kind. Thank you.

    Lisa, Thank you. I know what you mean, Etsy sometimes makes my head spin too (but it's also a lot of fun).

  5. oooo cool. I do get overwhelmed (more like sucked into the black abyss) to Etsy, but I'm heading over to check out these gift guides! Thanks...

  6. I love etsy and this seems to make it so much easier.
    Your work is so gorgeous!

  7. Congrats on being in the gift guide, that's wonderful.

  8. Christina, Yes, Etsy is a lot of fun. Thank you for your kind complement.

    Struggler, Thank you for your note. Too bad it was only a brief stay. My bowl sold and poof...I was replaced. It was fun while it lasted.

  9. I almost hope that my item doesn't get sold so that I can stay in the gift guide... is that silly or what? :)

  10. NewDominionBlues, Not silly at all. I would have hoped for the same thing if I'd known...
