I shared one of my most favorite projects this year over on A Beautiful Mess last week-a geometric planter and/or decorative accent. I had such a hard time getting this one right but I'm so glad I saw it through to the end. I always try to design from a personal place. If I'm going to put the effort into making something, I want it to be something I'd be happy to have in my own home. These two are surely going to be sticking around awhile.
