Waylande Gregory saves the Decade!

Ok, so you may recall my complete obsession with Waylande Gregory...(if not, refresh here). 
In short, he was essentially the first "Jonathan Adler" who created uber cool ceramics in the early 1900's.  His style is so unique and he really defined American decor.  I could go on and on about him.  But what is my point?
Well, recently, I celebrated a birthday--the sort of kind where you leave a previous decade behind and embark on a completely new set of numbers.  People try to make you feel better about those new numbers by justifying, "oh forty is the new thirty", or "you don't look a day over 39."  Well, nothing can make me feel better than fresh botox erasing away a new set of craters on my forehead....
That is, until I received my present from my sister Kurby
I knew it had to be good when I opened the box.  For those of you that don't know Zhush, you should.  This shop is filled with super chic stuff and Sue has a kick ass blog too (and no, I don't know her other than from reading her posts but she's adorable as all get out and I'm sure SHE hasn't reached the same decade as I just entered...*bitch*  wink). 
Waylande Gregory Leopard Box
Well, let's just say I nearly had a heart attack when I realized that I was now a proud owner of a Waylande Gregory!  The first of my collection (is it a collection if you only have one?)
I absolutely love the leopard box. 
Today each piece is produced according to Gregory's high standards and techniques using rich matte glazes, 22K gold and platinum.  It's hand crafted from high-fired porcelain and the designs follow those produced by Gregory. 

Visit Sue at The Zhush here to shop more Waylande Gregory!
 Thank you to Kurby!  I really appreciate this wonderfully perfect way to ring in this decade. 
(This is how it looks on my dresser!)
(PS, I must note that I received other awesome home decor items for my special day and these will appear in future posts--love you lil mama and Dewey)


Heya I'm on pinterest too. Check me out here.

OK, that last comment was meant to read, "Leave it to Kurby to find the perfect gift and one that you will always remember receiving on that special birthday." Love it!
