At Leaves of Clay, the nature is in the pottery. Michele creates each of her pieces to be unique by pressing different leaves into the clay to leave their own lasting impressions. I recently purchased this natural and rustic vase from Michele after lurking her site for quite a while. I also bought these precious little green bowls.
Did you know that quite a few Esty shop owners will also ship to other addresses too? Michele was very accommodating and sent a thank-you gift off to LFG for me. Of course when you send direct you don’t have the opportunity to fondle the item before sending it back off again, but in this case, we will be visiting LFG in VT in a couple of weeks so I can see her new candle holders in person. They are the kind with leaf impressions also. According to LFG, this greatly confused LFB as he was reading off the list of plants and didn’t know where they were.
I was also tempted to buy some of her buttons too. I had them in and out of my cart a few times before I decided to wait until I need some buttons. Hey – I wonder how many buttons the new Knitty sweater uses. Did you see it yet? It is Hey Teacher by Hélène Rush. I LOVE it!!! And, oh, it is rustic-y and has buttons!
Since I’m in promoting mode, I have totally forgotten to mention that LlamaFarmGirl and LlamaFarmBoy are now selling their LLamaFarmPoo. It is called Llama Llama Poo Poo and you can get more info on their website. If you are interested in very clean and soft llama fiber, LFG now has her own Etsy shop at www.llamafarmgirl.etsy.com. Her fiber is dehaired and ready for dyeing or spinning. Very yummy, I promise!
Oh, I think the sun is coming out! Maybe I’ll have a chance to take some more fiber photos. Have a great day everyone!
