Weekend Reading

By Kate Riley June 8, 2019

Happy weekend! I’m on a road trip with my son, we’re headed south from Las Vegas to the Colorado River to spend some time with my cousin and his son at their river house.

I’m so happy to have some one on one time with my boy, we’re boating and floating, I’m teaching him about classic rock bands, and he’s teaching me the tricks on how to solve the Rubik’s cube (little genius).

We’re having a great time together, wishing you the same sun and fun this weekend!

Maker Spotlight: Ceramics on Etsy

By Kate Riley June 6, 2019

Friends, I’m such a sucker for handmade ceramics, and I found myself browsing some Etsy shops yesterday. I love supporting makers and these shops are all new favorites of mine.

I love little vessels for holding jewelry, matchbooks, succulents, and for culinary uses… beautiful and practical! Take a peek at these shops and I’m sure you’ll find a little something you love too. Bonus: these are all made in America!
