Featured shop: Elukka from Finland

I just received a little package in the mail today from Finland. Inside, I found my new favorite necklace...a little house made from clay by Szilvia Vihriala at the shop: "elukka". The colors are amazing, so deep and rich...and the texture of the roof looks just like real shingles. Each house (the set I bought came with 4) is unique, with windows in different places. Here are a few pictures to show how gorgeous these items are!

Elukka doesn't just create houses...she seems to have a knack for creating canines as well...
From her description: "ELUKKA means "beast" or "critter" and that is exactly what I create: funny-looking animals, mostly dogs."

Here are my own pups modeling their new set of four elukka houses! (I told them to smile...but to no avail)

So check out this awesome shop from Finland...they are going to the TOP of my favorite shops list!
