Gifts from Wind & Willow Home
I think one of the nicest gifts you can give a newly-wedded couple, is something handmade and one-of-a kind. I also believe it’s important to support the independent artisans and designers who usually are behind these pieces, so I love to go on sites like Etsy to find out what these talented folks are making.
A few weeks ago, while searching for wedding gifts, I came across Wind & Willow Home which has a store on Etsy, and their own site and shop at www.windandwillowhome.com. Araya Jensen, is the designer and artisan behind these wonderful dipped bowls, utensils, pots, candlesticks and serving pieces, and I can’t imagine a nicer gift to give for a wedding than something from her line, so I contacted her to see if I could suggest her pieces to my readers. (She said yes!)
Everything about these colorful bowls and utensils is joyful, and inspired, and I love how the colors pop against the natural wood grain. The effect is both modern and natural, and these pieces could be equally suited to livening up a table in a city loft as they would be in a country farmhouse kitchen. The dipped portion of these bowls also have a little rubberized grip added, so they won’t wobble off the counter or out of your hands as you’re making a salad, or carrying a dish to the table.
Please take a look at her wonderful line yourself and remember Wind & Willow Home the next time you need a stand-out gift for a housewarming or wedding.
