Huge thanks to everyone who stopped by my place today for

It was a beautiful day with sun streaming in lighting up the place…
and smashing it on some flowers!!! Don’t forget that we’re doing it again tomorrow
from 10:00am-4:00pm!

But don’t look too close… these flowers are fake!!! Looking pretty good for silk, right?

Wouldn’t someone on your holiday gift list love some soda-fired textures?!…
like these square vases with a different pattern on each side?!
