Can I share some pics of my roses?

1-rainbow-roses

I just love fresh roses. :)

1-rainbow-roses

I *especially* love the multicolored ones- it’s like a rainbow of roses! :)

1-rainbow-roses

My favorite grocery store has these gorgeous buds for $7 a dozen– so I try to pick some up when I know we’re having company over.

custom-engraved-pottery-vase

The only problem with that is then I have to arrange them myself. And I am just terrible at that! Is that just me? Does anyone else lack the necessary gene required to neatly arrange roses in a vase?? :p

But they match the kitchen pretty good, huh?? :)

custom-engraved-pottery-vase

Check out that vase… This is *definitely* a “company’s coming over” vase!! :) It was custom made and engraved by Paula from Plays with Mud.. And look at that- she used a Pea Font! :) That’s Pea Lacy Chunky. Isn’t that cool?? :)

custom-engraved-pottery-vase

Can you *believe* that gorgeous detailing?? Outta this world!

custom-engraved-pottery-giveaway

Look what else Paula came up with.. Oh my goodness… I admit, when I first saw these mini vases (engraved with Create, Inspire, Dream), I wanted to snatch them right up and use them in my scraproom! :)

custom-engraved-pottery-giveaway

Can you imagine all the cute stuff I could hold in here?? Colored pencils, pens, brushes… Meep!

Yes. These vases are so cute, I actually “meep’d”. I’m not even sure what a meep is. It just slipped out.

42
Katy November 16, 2009 at 4:34 pm

44
Wendi November 16, 2009 at 4:34 pm

Adorable!! i want one of everything in her etsy store!!

PS: Roses are super easy to arrange–just pull off almost all of the leaves and cut them down so that only 4-5 inches of the stem/rose sticks out of the vase. :)

45
Kristen November 16, 2009 at 4:35 pm

Wow. What beautiful work. My must-have is the custom personalized new baby plate. I have a 6 month old daughter, and think I just might have to place an order soon! Love your site, by the way. I visit almost every day! Keep up the great work.

Dorothy November 16, 2009 at 4:35 pm

I’d love to have the personalized baby plate! With several newly married cousins, there’s bound to be a bun in the oven soon! (We’re all in our *very* late 20s) And…meep? I know a gal who meeps. That’s exactly the sound she makes when she hiccups. It’s hilarious and adorable!

*Beautiful roses by the way! I love the yellow/peachy colored ones!

47
Cary November 16, 2009 at 4:35 pm

Kathi B November 16, 2009 at 5:13 pm

Those are gorgeous! (Both the roses and the vases) I really like the Christ Be the Center of Our Lives vase. My little one has been asking why we don’t have a centerpiece on our table and that would be perfect.

101
Elaine November 16, 2009 at 5:18 pm

Love all the pottery and the roses look devine in that vase!

Oh-and isn’t “meep” from Beeker on the Muppets? lol That’s who I am picturing anyway….
The color of those roses is amazing. I feel that I can’t arrange mine very well either…Not that I receive any very often (*cough cough)

110
Linsey F. November 16, 2009 at 5:23 pm

So cool! I love the anniversary vase! That would be an awesome gift to give or get!

BTW: Someone taught me long ago to create a grid on the top opening of your vase with clear scotch tape. Then slip the flowers into the holes of the grid (does that make sense?). This keeps the flowers upright and in perfect position and since the tape is clear, no one can see you cheated!!

111
1LuvnMama November 16, 2009 at 5:24 pm

I do admit . . . this is waaaaaaaaaaaaay toooooooooooo cuttttttttttttttttte! And that’s no exaggeration! I luv those mini vases! I could use ‘em for a lot of things. Hoping to win them or else I have to place a zillion orders too ;o)

LOL!!! “Meep!” I love that. I’m so going to start “meeping” when I’m excited. ;)

I LOVE all of her stuff, but I think the Personalized Wedding Vase [FOREVER] would mean the world to me. When my husband brings me the occasional bouquet, it just turn my day/week/month around. It’s those little acts of love that warm my heart!!! :) I’m such a newlywed!

137

First, I saw your roses and thought they were stunning.
Then, I saw the vases and practically started drooling.
Finally, you mentioned the word “giveaway,” and I’m pretty sure I died a little.

Destiny D. November 17, 2009 at 2:08 am

I recently purchased Paula’s personalized Forever vase and I absolutely adore it. Paula was incredibly gracious and willing to “tweak” it to read my last name and wedding date making it even more special to my husband and I.

I searched every pottery page on Etsy (it took hours!) searching for something special to order and I’m convinced I made the right decision. I love everything about the piece and have received so many compliments on it.

If you are looking for something unique, beautifully made by a sweet and talented woman, then head over to Plays with Mud. You won’t be disappointed!

I adore the mini vases … might need them! Oh bother!

Thank you for the “pea” fonts. I use them all of the time!

291
Jessica November 17, 2009 at 2:14 am

I love it all!! Her plates for Santa and her platters are amazing. What amazing talent!!! I love how she integated the Pea Fonts!!! What pure talent, I wish I could make those!! I could never pick just one thing!! Its all or nothin’ with her Etsy store. I forwarded to all my girl friends, it is just too cute to not share!

I can’t arrange flowers that well either, I think you have to forget everything you thought you knew about decorating in order to do it well – flowers have their own rule book.

I will have to order 3 baby name plates for the kiddos! But, my favorite would have to be the forever vase. When I saw it, I was just struck with so many emotions thinking about my life with my husband. I would probably order a custom platter sometime in the future, too. I’m just thinking about what something special I would choose to have engraved.

324
Carol November 17, 2009 at 9:04 am

These pottery creations are just gorgeous! I really really love the personalized vases! It’s so classy and it’s personal! ;) Most vases are so blah and boring…and clear. These have such character and warmth! Love them all!

Anne R November 18, 2009 at 5:45 am

Wow – these are so pretty, I want to have it all and use as wallpaper in my (new) office/crafting space! I’d love them on my desk… <3

Michelle B. November 18, 2009 at 7:13 am

When I started reading your post, I thought to myself, WHERE did she find that vase? I HAVE to have one!

I am even more excited that you’re having a giveaway! Her work is gorgeous and I am thinking about giving my mother “You make the world a brighter place” vase because she’s my inspiration as a colon cancer survivor. :)

422
Carolyn November 18, 2009 at 7:39 am

Amanda, I just LOVE your website and I just realized you guys graduated from Auburn! I did, too! (INDD 2006) You and all of your cute ideas inspire me to get out there and design again! War Eagle!

Thank you!!
Carolyn

ps – The vases are adorable, too! Thanks for posting all of these great products and designers on your website, as well as sharing all of the free fonts, with which I am OBSESSED! :) I’m ordering a stamped silver necklace from Her Southern Charm (Jennifer = so talented!) for my sister for Christmas and I’m just so excited to see what you will have discovered and want to share every time I check out your website.

ItzLisa November 18, 2009 at 8:21 am

All of her pieces are intricately beautiful. I think if I had to choose only one piece it would be the vase that you have your roses in. It is so detailed, inspiring and just beautifully displays colorful flowers being a neutral color as it is.

P.S. Unrelated to this post, having being home-bound with illness for 2 years now, I want to thank you for inspiring me to learn some new hobbies; digital scrapbooking/cooking, even blogging.

428
Jess November 18, 2009 at 8:33 am

Meep! I love these little vases! I couldn’t find them on her Etsy site though. :o( I loved the Cookies for Santa plate and the vase that you put your roses in too, but I don’t think I found that one either. Very nice work! Thanks for sharing!

Amanda- I feel like I know you. My best friend and I get on your blog every day. Tonight I’m making your chicken cordon blue! Now, if I could only take foodie pics like you! I love her vases- especially the “Christ be the center of our lives” one, but also love the wedding ones. They would make great gifts!

How wonderfully creative. I absolutely love them! I agree with others there is no way that I could choose just one thing from this shop.
Thanks so much for sharing.
