Hanker Time: TheLuLuBird Pottery

“I have a personal theory that everything you need to know about life you can learn from working with clay.” – Liz Aldag, The LuLu Bird Pottery

A couple of weeks ago, I saw this pottery and haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since. I grew up near a huge pottery mecca in Seagrove, North Carolina and many Saturday mornings were spent helping my mom pick out gifts from the local stores. Pottery always seemed outdated until recently when I spotted The LuLu Bird Pottery.


Ceramic Cloud Serving Bowl, $34

The artist, Liz Aldag, is based out of Durham. I love everything about her collection collection- the colors, the shapes, the sizes, and the variety of pieces. I also love how functional each piece is. The cloud bowl would be perfect for serving up popcorn and the mugs below make me crave a cup of hot chocolate. 


Pair of Turquoise Waves Ceramic Coffee Mugs, $45




Black Mountain Planter, $40 

And these planters- they are my pottery soulmate. I want to fill up every windowsill in my house with these beauties. I’d definitely wash the dishes sooner if I could look at these while I scrubbed.

The Superbowl: Some Suggestions

  • 1. Have some funny ladies host it. Or Russell Brand. Any sort of comedian would help.
  • 2. Start it earlier in the day. 6:30 on a Sunday for a super long game that I don’t understand? 4 pm is more my style.
  • 3. Have a mystery player on the field at all times. I’d be into watching a game where Justin Timberlake had the potential to be out running around.
  • 4. Find a way to banish calories on Superbowl Sunday. Bonus points if calories on all Sundays could dissolve.
  • 5. More commercials!

In other news, props to the Superbowlians for strategically placing an episode of New Girl featuring Prince at the end of the game. You got me this time.
