Quick shop mentions

We've had a couple new advertisers join desire to inspire so I thought I'd do a quick post to plug their Etsy shops because they sell awesome products and I wanted to make sure you all went over and had a looksie.

First up is Michael McDowell's shop mudpuppy. I've been a long time fan of this shop and have had it marked as a favourite. Michael sells hand-crafted modern ceramic - mostly airplant hanging pods, baby head planters and chimes. I'll take one of each!

The next shop is Samantha's called Royal Countess where she sells modern, timeless jewelry. Lots of goodies here including earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings. I picked out a few favourites, below.

Can't see the forest for the trees ...


Or the furniture for the plants! Laurel emailed with her design dilemma. "Have you ever done a post of cool rooms that includes large dramatic houseplants? I just staggered home carrying a 6' fishtail palm and am looking for ideas -- a big mirror on the wall behind it is as far as I've gotten in my thinking." I've pulled a few from the files Laurel and while only one features a large mirror (great idea) they all have something in common - the 2 "Cs", containers and care. Dress your palm in a fabulous pot and lavish it with attention. Nothing looks worse than a tatty plastic pot or a tree that has dropped half its leaves from neglect. I love plants in the house although I must admit I'm more a fern on the bathroom window girl. Good luck with your palm. Have you given it a name yet?
