Pottery by Joanna Mendicino

Friday, November 19th, 2010

I’m swooning over these vases by the talented Joanna Mendicino. Her work is so clever and fun, definitely not a good combination for someone with a pretty serious porcelain habit. Make sure to stop by Joanna’s Etsy shop which is chock full of goodies including a seconds sale!

I’ll be back in a bit to announce the winner of the Minted giveaway so stay tuned!

Love and Thanks Freebie

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

Another amazing DIY freebie today! Amy Moss of Eat Drink Chic posted this a few weeks ago but it seems fitting for the upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday here in the states. Delightfully sweet and equally as charming, this little “Love and Thanks” card is available as a free download through Amy’s site. Just Print, cut and fold!

Paired with a bouquet of flowers or dish of sweets, this would be the perfect card to add to a hostess gift or a simple greeting.



Thanksgiving Paper Chain

Tuesday, November 16th, 2010

We all have things to be thankful for and I think it’s invaluable to take the time to jot them down every now and then. Thanksgiving is a great opportunity to do just that, so why not do it beautifully.

The creative folks over at Silverbox Design created these lovely Thanksgiving Printables which can be downloaded and cut into strips. Each has space to add something you’re grateful for and can be used as napkin rings, tags for tree branches or even a paper train. I can imagine that this could be a beautiful tradition that could be added to for years to come!

Download the template and get complete instructions from the Silverbox Design Blog and have fun!
