sweet + simple

Those two words rule my aesthetic life these days. The older I get, the more I value designs that are smart, efficient and simple — with a pretty twist. This gray and peach mosaic vase features one of my favorite color palettes and seems like the perfect way to showcase a few small flowers or even some pretty pencils on a desk. It was created by Susan at Up in the Air Somewhere and is available for sale right here on Etsy for $46. xo, grace

    You maybe have gotten this feedback already, but I think Chrome is not displaying D*S properly. The formatting issue makes the text partially unreadable. Safari is fine for me.

      I’m not having any issues- which version of Chrome are you using? Is it the most recent?

    I love this vase- and her ceramics in general! I totally agree about finding items that are sweet and simple.
