E is for Elizabeth Robinson.

E is for Ellen Shankin.

 E is for Ethiopian bowls.

I love my Elizabeth Robinson plates!  We use them every day; they are some of my favorites.  Beth is currently working new cards for me.  I will show them off as soon as they are done.  Just in case you are in the market for postcards or business cards, go directly to Postcards for Artists.   Beth does a great job and is really easy to work with!!

My Ellen Shankin vase is so light, it’s incredible.  Every time I go to pick it up it almost flies across the room.  I’m always expecting something heavier. 

The bowls from Ethiopia are not clay, as I’m sure you can tell.  They are beautifully carved wood.  The bigger one is for Injeria, Ethiopian bread, which looks like a giant spongy tortilla.  We have them hanging in our house, but for the photograph I had to set them up in my son’s room with his toys in the back ground.  Old world Ethiopia meets Tonka truck!
