Day 2 of Winter with 40s & rain!! What would it take to get to 60 degrees!!! 😃 •
We’re in the last few days of Wet, Wild & a Wee Bit of Whimsy which has been such a popular exhibition!!! We are so very grateful for the 60+ pieces of art that’ve sold & there are still super fabulous art on our walls!!! •
Rosemarie Good is one of the artists participating in Wet/Wild & she has 5 pieces of art in our next exhibition, Let’s Take A Walk!! Love seeing the creation of art!! 😍
SO. MANY. BOXES. 📦 We’re drowning in boxes as we prep our largest order to date, so if things get a little quiet around here this week 👆🏽 that’s why. We wouldn’t change a thing though and are so grateful for every single order, big and small. Also, if you’re ever wondering what to do with your keepsake BV box, check our blog for some great ideas!
Shipped out this handsome fella this evening!! He’ll be hanging on the client’s gallery wall of historic photographs, illustrations, and paintings. 😍. 20x24” acrylic on canvas.
My grandmother's urn came out of the kiln yesterday, with a huge sigh of relief that it survived the firing and my new clear satin glaze that I made worked out. I'll be delivering it to my dad in a day or two, so there definitely wasn't time to make another one if it cracked or if the lid stuck to the pot. This project was a significant learning experience. All of the drawing and designing and math really paid off when it came time to make it, as the final version is very different than the early design sketches, and much better than it would have been if I had just sat down and gave it a go. I forced myself to try out a lot of new things, like scale for example. Next to the urn is a small bottle/vase that is closer in size to what I usually throw. This piece has made me excited to get going with other large and more dynamic forms.

NurturMe world, we have great news to share with you: We officially made the #inc5000
fastest growing companies list! 🙌 🎉We're taking a moment this week to reflect on our journey with our fearless #mompreneurs
and founders, Caroline Freedman & Lauren de la Rosa. ☀︎☀︎☀︎ "Lauren and I laugh when people imply that what we do is glamorous. While it’s so fulfilling to do what we love, and to have built the brand that we set out to create, behind the scenes it’s not so glamorous - it is a LOT of work! While it’s not always easy, we are grateful for the opportunity to take a pause, look up, and see how far we’ve come. Some of the things that I’m personally most proud of is the impressive team we’ve gathered to work with us, and the culture of support & positivity we’ve built, as well as the friendship Lauren and I have shared through it all."- Caroline Freedman

So many fun new earrings coming soon!!!
Outdoor events are never easy to manage. We've weathered random hail storms and bazaar cold front days in the middle of spring to random bazaar high temps in early summer. We've seen the hard blow weather can have on an event that so many people put so much hard work toward. Today's forecast was rain for days and here we are with blue skies. It's never easy to know what to do. I guess we'll be adding today's outcome to our belt of event planning experience and try our best to rest in knowing that we did what we thought would be in the best interest of everyone involved. And also that Texas weather will always be that son of a gun that makes this part of our job so hard. // @atxconnectionmixer
& Pop-Up Market reschedule TBD.
The best selling Duffy Jumper by @esby_apparel
is now in stock. It can be worn with the boat neck or v-neck in the front, the drawcord at waist also allows you to wear this jumpsuit relaxed or cinched to define your waist, and has pockets at the sides that add function without bulk. #sogood #morningtideshop
How about this rain y'all? After much thought and close attention to Sunday's weather forecast for ATX we've made the collective decision to cancel Sunday's @atxconnectionmixer
& Pop-Up Market with a reschedule TBD. Our hope always, is to make sure our vendors and guests have the best possible experience at our events. With rain in the forecast we just can't risk it for this outdoor event. 😥
To help cheer you (and us) up we'd like to introduce you to @milonicki
, one of our participating vendors. Why the banana peel? Swipe over to see what a cruelty-free, ethically designed sustainable women's clothing line can produce from 100% banana waste! I know! It's incredible and so is their story. Head over to their bio link to read up on this power duo and be inspired. And no banana scents. We actually love the smell of bananas though. 😊🍌🌧️
Thanks for following along with our events and updates here. We appreciate every single one of you!
Huge shout to @ohhhchelsea
for providing a monthly networking event that brings people together for cool events like this! And a big thanks to @space24twenty
