Last weekend Laurel and I had a fantastic time at the Down:2:Earth sustainable living expo. Laurel loved the face painting, games, snacks, and garden displays, and I was especially thrilled to see many green companies I have featured (Boston Organics, Bum Boosa, Diaper Lab, Go GaGa, Sakura Bloom, Seventh Generation, snackTAXI, Stonyfield) present, and also to discover new ones, such as Acero Studio. Mom-owned and based out of New Bedford, artist Anne Wolfe creates lovely vintage-styled graphics then hand prints them onto a delicious array of microwave and dishwasher safe ceramics and porcelain jewelry.
The designs are so clean and simple and pretty. I spent a good amount of time ogling the options, then Laurel picked out a pretty upcycled floral patterned container with a printed and painted butterfly on the lid (for my mother-in-law's upcoming birthday). Whether you're shopping for yourself, Mother's Day, or a birthday, definitely consider supporting local talent at Acero Studio. I know I'll be shopping there again soon.
