Giveaway and Review: Christie Cone Ceramics

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. CONGRATULATIONS, PAULETTE!

 

Tonight's giveaway is sponspored by the Etsy shop Christie Cone Ceramics; the winner must have a US address.


Christie sent me this gorgeous bowl to review for Fishing and Wishing. I loved it as soon as I laid eyes on it! It's absolutely beautiful and well-made. The colors are interesting and intriguing, and the shape is the same.  We (my kids, who were with me when I picked it up from the Post Office, and I) immediately set to work thinking what I should keep in it. Of course, they thought up kid stuff, like crayons and fruit snacks, but that didn't exactly fly with Mom!


In the end, I chose to use it as a catch-all for some of my jewelry that hadn't found a home yet, and it's just perfect for that. It looks so pretty on my dresser, and I'm so thankful to have received it.

Also, I want to say that Christie has wonderful branding and packaging, from her business cards to her note cards to the back of her ceramics. The logo is the same on everything, and it's a very distinct image. Well done, Christie!


The winner of this giveaway will be the very lucky recipient of this scalloped-edge bowl! Isn't it gorgeous? Just think what you could do with it, and where it could be used in your home!


I love the idea of using it for a fruit bowl. It looks great!



If you head on over to Christie Cone Ceramics, you'll see that Christie has a variety of different Nativity sets, all of which are very reasonably priced. I loved looking through all the photos of each one, because the back of each piece is just as interesting as the front. Lovely.


Of course, you will find more amazing bowls in the shop as well, if you don't happen to win...!



If you love art, you might find yourself inspired by these pod sculptures in the shop as well. 

So have a look around the shop and discover some incredible art!
