Etsy Betsy: Ceramics and Pottery Edition

You may not know this about me (and how could you?), but I am way into using pottery/ceramic coffee cups. And for that matter, I’m into these items for just about everything else, too: salad bowls, cookie jars, water “glasses,” decorate vases, et cetera. As a result, I always have a few good Etsy pottery […]
