{ bits & pieces }

By Brit

I love to embellish my home with little original details that I discovered on flea markets, brought home from a trip or simply found on the beach; things that tell a story or remind me of a wonderful moment. Here are some bits of my much loved treasure troves.

Today, I have the pleasure to introduce you to Margie Oomen of Resurrection Fern. I discovered her crochet covered sea stones that she collected on her summer vacation in Cape Breton on Etsy and fell in love with these cute little art works, her “rock babies” as Margie calls them.

{ daily gratitude }

By Brit

Today I received an email from Squam informing me about their ephemeral gratiful journal a place to write each day five things you are grateful for. I am enchanted about this wonderful idea. You can choose between the beach fence, the mushrooms, and the spider web journal but hurry up, they are only available for one more week. The squam store will feature only one item per month; an exclusive, handmade item by one of the many artists of this creative community. These offerings will be limited editions made available for a short time only. And what a lovely dictum for this wonderful idea…

“gratitude can transform
common days into Thanksgivings,
turn routine jobs into joy
and change ordinary opportunitites
into blessings.”

{  ~william arthur ward ~ }

Squam is a lake, a gathering, a community. In 2008, Squam Art Workshops had is first gathering in New Hampshire on the shores of Squam Lake but soon became known simply as “squam.” In that sense, the word meant a gathering of people who love all things creative. In essence, squam is hopeful, open-hearted and passionately committed to having fun, being goofy, diving in, singing out, and seeking beauty in our daily life.

{ whimsical pottery }

By Brit

Drawn from the living and natural world, this whimsical, animal-themed pottery is handmade by Patti Sandberg out of her studio in Portland, Maine. Decals of vintage illustrations are juxtaposed with playful hand-painted colors, shapes, and details for nostalgic yet one-of-a-kind pieces for everyday use.
