For the next few weeks I will be featuring some favorite items in the Friday Favorite spot since I know a lot of people are looking around for Christmas gift ideas. I’ve got plenty of suggestions, so to start it all off this week’s favorite is an Etsy Shop called Cherie Giampietro. Cherie is a ceramic artist who works out of a lovely home studio up in Farmington, Maine. I’ve admired her pottery for years now, and have been lucky enough to visit her ceramic studio and see how she works. All of her pieces are simple, organic, and earthy. Her mugs and bowls make the perfect homey and handmade gifts.
