Every once in a while, someone will do something nice for no reason at all. Meet Urbanflea. She has an amazing blog that features some really great interior designs and ideas. I especially love the West Elm Branch table for $179.00. She was kind enough to mention me along with some amazing pottery artists on Etsy in her Weekly Etsy Fix: Ceramics. So if you're visual like myself, check out her blog for some delicious eye candy.

For the past several years I have been obsessing about going to Paris. I am not sure why exactly, perhaps it was the season finale of Sex and the City or the Devil wears Prada. I’d like to think it’s because of my deep seeded French roots belonging to my great, great grandmother. I remember one day my husband asking me where I wanted to go first, France or Italy, and I had decided France for sure. So on a day in February, he surprised me with a trip to Paris. I have been beyond thrilled ever since. So this Friday, we are taking a 12 hour direct flight to Paris and staying in a rented ‘flat” a block from the Louvre. I will do my best to put my “poterie” on hold, while I stroll through Versailles. I am not leaving without some antique trinket from one of the Parisian flea markets. I am sure I’ll blab all about it when I return. Au revoir.

Here are some new pieces that I will be listing on Etsy. After I’ve had pretty good success with the Robin’s Egg vases, I thought about throwing a complete egg as a closed form like more of a sculpture. I think these three came out really well. I love that the speckles are nice and dark.
