The Old, The New and The Handmade

You all know that I love to find shops to share! This week I have three that feel like summer - - in an abstract way - feelings aren't always literal. They come and go, and what we see, purchase and have in our homes reflects who we are.

Marmen of French Attic Finds has been a favorite vintage shop of mine since I first started selling on Etsy. The ease with which she seems to stock her shop, and the particular french feel have touched my heart. My french ancestry gives me a strong sense of connection to her beautiful items. And she is celebrating her second year on Etsy!! What fun!

Did I mention that my husband just completed his first year teaching at a new High School here in San Diego - and that he teaches ceramics! That means that I am fascinated by ceramics! I find so many lovely shops on Etsy and just found this one. Sean O'Connell works in porcelain and his glazing is abstract and has a depth of emotion that I find so peaceful. Each piece is a work of art and the fine detailing is charming!

From Left to Right - Lidded Jar, Desert Plate, Cocktail Cup
A newbie - - that's what we call new shops on Etsy. When I was new, my photos were lame, my prices were lame, and I didn't know what I was doing. Eden of Eden Some, on the other hand has a shop that totally rocks! From the getgo! His paintings are energetic, abstract and cohesive! The colors are pure summer to me, and the composition feels right. He has lots to choose from, originals and prints - he opened his shop on January 1, 2013. What a great way to start the year!
