I’m currently going through a decor phase where I want to collect all kinds of ceramics. I keep searching and searching for unique vases, bowls, cups, plates, you name it. I love the idea of filling a whole shelf with ceramic vases for plants, like my inspiration tear above, or having that unique coffee cup just nestling in the kitchen.

Our Vintage Buyer Ali is one of those characters you spend an hour with and you feel like you’ve taken an adventure around the world and back again. She’s one of those people that I always find myself being drawn to, mainly because her passion for vintage is as big as the universe and beyond. She can ramble on about items she finds at flea markets for hours and hours and soaks in enough knowledge about them worthy for an entire book to be written. Read more »
The physical differences from December 31st to January 1st may be minuscule, but in my mind these two days are polar opposites. New Year’s Eve serves as a conclusion to a chapter of life.
