Unexpected Joy



A Winter Primrose in the dining room bay window.  Ceramic planter from Clear Mountain Craft


These little primroses are my favorite way to decorate mid-winter. You can find them at your local nursery or grocery store: typically for about a dollar a plant. And while they will spruce up a winter-grey yard quickly, I like to place them in ceramic planters I’ve collected and tuck them into unexpected corners of our home for a touch of spring where you might not expect it. Long dark winters need moments of unexpected joy, don’t they? 

Mireio Finds: Hideminy

I’m still moving into my new space. . . but thought I’d stop to share this new find with you! I’m adoring the pottery work of Hideminy. Especially the translucency of these  paper thin porcelain cups. Wouldn’t they put a dash of “pretty” into your Halloween decor? I think they’d look marvelous paired up with mini white pumpkins across a window ledge.
