sometimes i wonder why the heck ac and i haven't been to austin yet. i've been to west texas but never austin- which seems to be one of the coolest cities around. yesterday i received an email from kristi pruett who just opened what looks like an adorable new home boutique in austin, tx. kristi's shop, finch, carries a wonderful selection of designers like diana fayt, alex marshall, laura zindel, rae dunn, karin Eriksson and many, many more. i was taken with the tableware collection and the fact that kristi has edited with such a keen eye for handmade design. you can browse finch's collection right here or stop by 417 west 2nd street if you're in the austin area. thanks again to kristi for sending her lovely shop over.
