Hand Crafted Modern Ceramics by Michael McDowell

MudPuppy on EtsyI used to have a number of air plants. I loved them because I really didn't need to water them all that much. They lived in my bathroom and would suck the moisture right out of the air every time anyone took a shower.

Today's shop uses these plants as a part of their display and even creates a variety of items for holding and showing off these unique and unusual plants.

MudPuppy on Etsy (talk about a memorable name!) is a wonderful shop filled with a variety of hand crafted modern ceramics from airplant pots to baby head shaped planters, ceramic windchimes and super-realistic ceramic human skulls.

This shop is a fascinating find and you'll love stopping in to take a look around. You can even buy the air plants themselves to tuck in the pots they sell! And, when you add an airplant to your order, the shipping is knocked down to free for your order as well.

Handmade Items For Cats (and for humans who love them)

AllAboutCats on EtsyIf you're a cat lover, you're going to love today's shop. Many people (myself included) bond with their pets to the point that they become special loved ones and treasured family members. And, like anyone you love, there are times when you just want to spoil those "people" rotten.

This shop is perfect for that. In fact you're sure to find everything you need to delight yourself and your cat both!

AllAboutCats on Etsy is filled with toys and goodies and other fun items that, (you guessed it!), are all about cats!

Linda, the artisan that runs the shop and creates all these wonderful items, loves cats and has three of them herself that she's rescued and recruited into the lap of luxury within her home. In her shop you can find everything from organic catnip toys and kitten toys to bookmarks, coasters, magnets and treats as well as useful accessories and other items. All with a fun loving cat theme about them.

Everything is made in a smoke free home and Linda has lots of assistance from her three cats as well in prototype testing and such.
