I was shopping with the kids a few weeks ago during school holidays when I spotted an enchanting ceramic vase in our travels. I have been on the look out for unique items to decorate our home with...there are a few bare spots that I still need to fill but I want it to happen naturally, as I see bits and pieces that call out to me and slowly build a collection of beautiful things.
The vase...I fell in love. It is big, a little quirky and features the artwork of Rob Ryan - an extremely talented paper cutter and print maker. As much as I wanted to buy the vase then and there, it was a little pricey and I REALLY wanted it to come in red or green as I didn't think that blue really went with anything in our house. So I ummed and aahed and decided to leave it for now.
After we got home I searched online for the vase and found it on sale at Lark (sale has finished now). I couldn't help myself and popped it into my virtual shopping cart and made the purchase :)
It has been sitting in our lounge room for a few days and makes me smile every time I look at it. Sometimes a girl's just gotta have a little splurge!
If you are not familiar with Rob Ryan, check out his website and some of his paper cuts below...most of these can be purchased on his Etsy store.
