Objects aren’t always the sum of their materials. We place emotions and memories on things that we carry with us through our lives. They become a thread in the fabric of our time together, shaping how we feel or acting as an anchor for a feeling. Recalling how a bowl feels in your hand can call back a vivid image of a loved one. Seeing sunset colors on a canvas can bring up a smile that you didn’t think was possible that day.
Things are just things, but what they make us feel is more than materials. It’s what keeps us connected. Sweet Tarnation is a place of thoughtful, everyday objects that make life sweeter.
Whether it’s a gift for your own household or someone else in your life, you can transform everyday moments like the morning cuppa routine into a delicious ritual. Maybe you need to brighten up a hallway or give a beloved leafed friend a colorful new home, you are in the right place.
Color is transformative. There’s a reason bright and cheerful colors call to us and using them in artful items you can see and hold each day is a fun bit of therapy we could all use in our lives.
Using a beautiful vessel is something to look forward to. Sipping drinks from gorgeous vessels makes it all the sweeter; from hot drinks to wine, that nip of whiskey or port to end the evening. The feeling of a heavy-bottomed, hand-crafted cup never gets old.
Offering guests a selection of vessels when hosting is nothing short of delightful. Their faces light up at the options and and it’s wonderful seeing what they choose!
Sweeten up your daily routine and tell me how you use your Sweet Tarnation art! I love to hear from folks when my efforts make their lives just a little brighter.
