Andy and Nancy at Circa Ceramics in Chicago are some of the most genuine people, and of course, they are Etsy sellers. From my experience with Etsy, I’ve only dealt with wonderful sellers, which further lures me in to search for more fabulous people to shop from. Between Flickr and Etsy, and all those blogs over there on my blogroll, I could pretty much burn an entire day online. Relate?
Speaking of sweet, the fabulous Poppy started a new feature, a daily Etsy find which is in the left column of her blog. Poppy, you rock girl!

Br?hl is a big name in Germany, whenever I’m over there scouring newsstands for German home design mags, I spot them in nearly every single issue I pull. They’re popular for good reason, style and quality being high on the list.
She seems to be having a lot of fun on this photo shoot. Cute, huh?
I’m not a print sofa person. I do prints on chairs and solids on sofas. Can anyone relate to this? Or is this just an American thing? I mean, walk into any furniture showroom and most sofas you see are solids… Yet, we have no issue mixing in patterned pillows, ottomans, chairs, window treatments. Hmmm… What’s behind our fear of patterned sofas, I wonder? Or do I stand alone on this one, and you love patterned sofas?
The contemporary glass of the talented Caleb Simeon is undeniably gorgeous. After obtaining his BFA in glass blowing, and spending several years in Venice where he apprenticed with master glass sculptor Pino Signoretto, Caleb returned to California to create his own Italian-inspired glass to share with the world. Caleb isn’t in the business merely to please himself, he goes above and beyond by inviting Italian masters and international glass blowers to come together in his studio to train the next generation of glass artisans. That is dedication and passion at work. If you are interested in seeing Caleb Simeon glass, click here for store and gallery locations nearest to you. Locals: You can spot some pieces at Good on Charles Street.
