Fly safely to Paris!


I got a message from Etsy's PR Manager from France the other day, she asked me to send a set of my white fruit platters to Etsy´s press day.

The lady said: "We are organizing our first press day here in France on the 27th of March and we need your help! During this press day, we will be creating a showroom in order to present the diversity of products sold on Etsy  We will be recreating the apartment of a couple with a child, as well as a space themed around weddings. During this 1 day event, we are expecting about a hundred journalists and bloggers. This is a great opportunity for you to show off your products to the French media."

I think it´s a great opportunity to make my shop more visible, so today I sent the platters to Paris:

Ucuspucus and me sowing some seeds

See, the title is almost a rhyme
and I feel like it´s time
to talk about pots, plants and seeds
because spring is coming, indeed :)

It´ s funny how all these little rhymes are coming out of my sleeve all of the time. Few years ago I used to make poems, but only in Estonian language. If I would sit down and take a pen and piece of paper, I´m sure I would still got it, but I pour almost all of my creativeness into my mosaics today.

So where was I - oh yeah, I wanted to talk about spring and seeds. Me and my Etsy friend Ucuspucus from Romania (Raluca is her real name and Raluca is one multifunctional person - she is an ENT surgeon and an artist at the same time) decided to sow some seeds on a same day. So we did. Here are my pots with the seeds sown already:

I hope to see some photos of Raluca´s seeds and pots soon, but on the meanwhile I can see her wonderful work in Etsy: Ucuspucus has also planted some plants into her paintings like on this one:

I also love Raluca´s watercolor hedgehog´s painting :

There are many more beautiful works from her, but check it out yourself, I´ll go and talk to the seeds now, this way they will grow better :)
