Something Blue Pottery Etsy Shop Review and Giveaway

I'm very big on sentimental items.  I've saved every card my fiance has given me since we met 5 1/2 years ago.  I save birthday cards.  I saved my bridal shower cards, and surely I will save my wedding cards too.  I love looking back at happy and memorable times and having something to connect the memory with and smile. Handmade items are so unique and truly special.  I value something that is created from the heart immensely.  Something Blue Pottery is here to make your personalized plate dreams come true.





Something Blue Pottery is an Etsy shop ran by Abby.  The shop specializes in personalized and hand painted wedding plates.  Abby has a true gift and talent for painting and her work surely displays her craft.  The plates come in three different styles: a bride and groom plate, a wedding cake plate, and a band of flowers. All plates come in any colors and text of your choosing.  You can even suggest a custom design request if you'd like.  Abby is very easy to work with and she will happily create the ideal plate for you.  A wedding plate would make a perfect gift for the bride and groom who don't need a new mixer or blender.  They will treasure the plate and be reminded of their special day forever. This piece would make an excellent anniversary present or vow renewal present too. 

Since I'm getting married in August, I'd love something to commemorate my special day.  Abby's plates were just what I was looking for.  I told her the colors I wanted, our names, and my wedding date and I let her work her magic.  The plate was done very fast and soon after that it was in a box in my hands!

How beautiful is this plate? The piece is glazed and fired to be food safe, microwave safe and dishwasher safe.  This will be one piece that will be used for years to come in my home.

I wish I had half the talent that Abby does.  She paints free-hand and does a spectacular job.  This plate is very high quality.  She incorporated my wedding colors of pink and black into every element of the plate.  I love the black bars on the edge of the plate, and the pink balls on the perimeter of the inside.  Our names and wedding date are painted in a cute script, and the pink flowers draw everything together.  You also can't forget about the little black dots on the inside too. All design is done with care and dedication.  The colors are bright and vivid too. Of course pink and black look beautiful together too.  

The plate is sturdy and has weight to it.  It would be an ideal platter to serve appetizers on, or even a plate to  put carved turkey on for Christmas or Thanksgiving dinner.  You could even get a stand for it and display it in your breakfront cabinet. However way you want to use it, it's a plate that holds meaning and memories.  You can't beat that.  This plate will certainly be in my kitchen for many years to come.

If you're looking for a special gift to celebrate your own wedding (past, present, or future) Abby is waiting to sketch out a plate for a permanent design that will make you smile.


*Abby is currently developing a new line of smaller 8x8 square plates.  The corners on this one are sharper and feature a new wedding design.  The winner will win a wedding design on the new plate.  

A quick sketch of what the new design will be.  The bride and groom's name and their wedding date.  The car driving off with the just married sign and the cans hanging off the back of the car will be displayed too.  You can choose colors and text. You're also welcome to have any of the other 3 classic designs as I detailed above.
