Just about everyone can enjoy a delicious cupcake now and then, right? As long as it tastes good, who really cares what it looks like, right? I disagree. :) I want it to taste good and look good and if you can somehow throw in a little humor, well then, I'm sold!

Since painting our living room/dining room a dark espresso brown, I see white ceramic pieces jumping out at me everywhere! I love how white accessories really pop against the rich color!
Imagine my surprise when this past Christmas, my 8-year-old niece gave me a wonderful pinch pot that she made in her art class! I was overcome with joy. I am in love with it! I absolutely adore it!! This means so much more to me than anything I could ever buy! I had been looking for a perfect piece for that very spot and she had just given it to me as a gift! Take a look:
I want her to make more and open an Etsy shop!! I'd certainly buy some!! Since receiving this, I wanted more. Maybe just a piece or two more to form a little grouping somewhere in the room.
The first designer that popped into my head was Jonathan Adler. When I think of him, I instantly envision his white pottery! Take a peek at some of his pieces:
I continued my search and check out my amazing find: Heather Knight!! I found her Etsy Shop and knew I needed to look no further. Her pieces are amazing! I am so excited to get purchasing and you should be too! :) Take a look at some of her fantastic collection:

I need help! We have lived in our home for over a year now and I am still on a search for the perfect piece to put over our sofa in the family room. I cannot seem to find anything that fits the space just perfectly. I want something (or some things) that means something to my husband and me....something to which we can connect...something special. I also would love to find an original piece and since it's not exactly in our budget right now to spend thousands on a work of art, I thought Etsy would be the perfect place to start.
I just discovered Etsy seller, nrgstudio and I must say I am impressed! He is so talented! Take a look! I'd love to put all four of these pieces in the massive space I have to fill:

I also really love this piece from Etsy seller iamikanart. Maybe this could work?
Ahh!! I just don't know. I'm so indecisive!
