The 7 Rules of Life

How sweet are these cement pots?

They are from a company called Terrain. My knitwear designer friend, Kristin, posted about them and I just had to repost. So yummy.

They also come in a short, squat variety.

They remind me of this small porcelain cup that I have on my dinner table that I put matches in by Alyssa Ettinger.

I glued a match striker on the bottom of it, for easy lighting. Being a knitter, I especially love these. My photo fails miserably however in showing how delicate the cup actually is.

Better photos on Ettinger's site.

Tonight I discovered former British fashion designer, turned potter, Annette Bugansky.

Her work is just H E A V E N L Y.

Check out her google images if you have a second.

As of this past Sunday, we are empty nesters again. Where as last fall it seemed like a lovely novelty, this time around it seems a little lonely.

Just a little.

Perhaps I just need to do something creative, instead of putting out logistical fires.

Time to knit again maybe.

Lastly, I like these 7 rules of life. One for each day of the week.

Happy weekend to you all. xo


  1. Love that British potter's site Louise! Those pots are amazing. Thanks for the link.
    Maybe now that the girls are off at school you can get back to something creative. Have to fill your life. Julia started high school! Have a nice weekend.

  2. I know. Seriously! I'm in love! Great to hear from you and happy fall. xo

  3. Love this "whisper of the heart" list. I have a copy on my computer.:) Enjoy your creativity time, girl. NOW is it! xoxoxoxo

    1. I especially like #5. Applicable to all aspects of life.
