Mudpuppy {Etsy Love}

Spring is in the air....well, at least it is here in Toronto. It's raining again today making it feel all mucky and icky. Although I'll be perfectly honest, it's also on days like today that I wish I had a patio, balcony or even a small lawn. Not having one of these forces me to get outside, which is definitely a good thing.

I've never really been a plant or flower person. I kill anything that's ever been given to me, not for lack of trying, I just don't have that knack for growing things, or even keeping things alive. I'm starting to think that I may have to give the plant/flower thing another shot, as the apartment is feeling a little bit too 'hard' if that makes any sense. I feel as if some plants in the house would help to soften up our apartment, and maybe give us some more much needed oxygen as well!

This if course has led me on the hunt for vases, pots and planters. You can't have plants without them, and if I am going to do this, it's going to look good!

My search led me to Etsy of course, and I found Mudpuppy, aka, Michael McDowell, from Denver, Colorado. Michael is so talented, making vases, sculptures, and lots of other items from clay. He has been true to his heart, and is following his dream of being a ceramic artist, and I must say he's doing an amazing job! It's tough to make that step, isn't it? You can read more about Michael on his website here.
