Ceramics and Pottery
If you’re looking for something awesome for your mom this Mother’s Day you need to visit Queen of De Tile… like YESTERDAY!
Queen of De Tile is the brain child of Kim Keane, one of handmade’s newest. The shop features modern handmade ceramic coasters in a fun variety of styles. It opened in March of 2012 and they are are already well on their way to being part of the cream of the crop. Almost 25 sales in a month!
My favorite set of coasters is the Cherry Blossom coasters. I love how the turquoise pops off the screen! I can only imagine how these would look like in my home. There’s pretty much something for everyone. The best part? You can get a set of 4 coasters for under $20 and that includes shipping. Don’t see something that catches your eye? They accept custom orders! Go take a peek and tell them I sent you.
My absence has been missed I’m sure. I’ve been so busy I couldn’t tell which way was up. I’m happy to say that I’m still well and alive and I’m back extra early this morning to bring you a fun find that I made extra early this morning.
I’m usually not out of bed this early in the morning but I had a bit of trouble sleeping last night so when I did wake up I decided that although I’m not a coffee girl I was going to need coffee in order to make it through the day. My need for coffee allowed me to find Yevgenia and their cool eco friendly ceramic coffee cups.
This ceramic cup with silicon lid is eco-friendly alternative to sipping coffee or tea on the go! Just a bit of hot water and soap will keep this cup in good shape! Such an excellent way to help the environment!
Well, yesterday was eventful. Not only did buy myself an entire new wardrobe but I also got myself a job interview with a dentist office I’d really like to work for. On top of all that some guy decided that he’d rob a coffee stand nearby me and go on the run. Let’s just say that the cops will no longer need to put together a case on him because he’s heading straight to the morgue. Nice right? Desperate times call for desperate measures? No one will ever know because he’s not around to say what his motives were. I guess that’s just how it goes.
Coffee stands are apparently the new target for thieves. They are easy to hit. They don’t have surveillance and you can get away pretty quickly. I think I’ll stick to having my coffee at home. Thankfully for me I’m one step ahead of the game and I found the coolest coffee mugs at The Secret ‘Stache. The purple mug is right up my alley! The mustache is just darling and having it on the mug would make it a must have when the girls come over for coffee. I’m sure it’d be the first one people tried to snag.
Not only do we celebrate National Strawberry Month in May, but it just so happens that today is Pick Strawberries Day! So, I did just that – picked some strawberries!
Ah’ Allergy Season. I dread this time every spring when the pollen count is high and I always happen to catch something. It’s weird how I can go all through winter with but a few sniffles but get a horrible illness this time of year. I am not the only one at The Handmade Guru feeling down, Kim and Heather and sick too! We are a lively bunch right now I assure you.
When I am sick I like nothing more then to settle in with my blanket, pillow, and a cup of hot tea to cure my woos. It occured to me today that I don’t have many mugs for tea. I guess mugs are one of those things you don’t consider purchasing and just sort of acquire. So I went on the hunt for a cute handmade mug that I enjoy.
Bellajoy Pottery on Etsy has some amazing mugs and other great pottery pieces. My favorite was this Mug by bellajoy. I love the colors and the size and shape of this mug. Perfect for holding while I am babying myself on the couch. This mug is made from porcelin and microwave and dishwasher safe. Love it!
