These are sitting on my mantle right now. Jealous? Well, no need for that, because I am going to share, as usual. It hurts me to part with them but when I find something so utterly beautiful I have to spread the word. I am going to put cattails in them before I present them to the winner.
Maybe it's because he chose to pose with his dog in the profile picture for his shop or maybe it's because I can't get enough of his work, or maybe it is some combination of both. Either way Brian from BDJ Craft Works has just taken over the top spot in my heart for artists.
I am head over heels for these walnut vases with a touch of color. I almost never talk about price when I feature a product but I can't understand how my pal Brian can charge so little for handcrafted petit walnut vases. I'm convinced that he is so gloriously happy spending the Fall in Colorado that he's lost a bit of his mind. Seriously, $30 will get you the most thoughtful and gorgeous gift for anyone on your list.
This kind, talented, somewhat delirious artist already sent a number of samples of his works to me so that I could share with you. You can't all win, however, so click here, and get your Christmas shopping started. You'll be glad you did. Also, 'like' this post on Facebook or comment below to be entered to win one of these masterpiece's.
Oh, this planter. How gorgeous would this be on your windowsill or your desk at work. See that rounded vase next door? I want it under the Christmas tree. Okay, honey? (I know he's reading this.)
Take note of this logo. You'll be proud to own a piece of his work before his work takes off and we can no longer afford it.
