Listen Up: Registry Recs and Clay Makin’
Two questions people ask us on the reg: How do you put together a wedding registry in this KonMari era? And how do you get into pottery? We tackled the first ourselves and brought in one of our favorite ceramicists, Isabel Halley, to school us on the later. If you’re anything like us, both segments will have you dreaming of new dishes.
P.S. Don’t forget to pick up a copy of Foreign Affairs by Alison Lurie—we’re discussing it in the third installment of the #ReadingThings book club on 8/15!
What to put on your wedding gift wishlist...
- We now have registry on our site—whee! It’s via My Registry, which allows you to pull things from all over the internet—and, hey, isn’t just for weddings. Some other stellar registry options: Bed Bath & Beyond, Honeyfund, Merci Registry, and Zola.
- Here’s our registry VIPs (very important picks, duh): Riedel stemless wine glasses, Wamsutta Dream Zone sheets, Fort Makers cutting board, Design Within Reach flatware, Heath Ceramics dinnerware, Mud Australia dinnerware, Hasami Porcelain, Falcon Enamelware, and Crow Canyon Splatterware.
- Claire hung on to her family’s supply of Dansk dishes and Rosenthal china.
- Why not ask for a session with Tidy Tova and get the gift of a squeaky clean apartment (and marital bliss)?
- Bonus gifts you will never buy for yourself but will be so happy to own: a wine vacuum, a cheese plane, a Neato vacuum, and a handheld vacuum.
Our special and amazing guest Isabel Halley tells us how to pinch our way to pottery success...
- She got her start at NYC institution Greenwich House Pottery. If you’re in NYC, you can also check out classes at Tribeca Clayworks at the Downtown Community Center, La Mano Pottery, Choplet Ceramics, and Brickhouse Ceramic Art Center.
- You can get a sneak peek of Isabel’s new projects on her Instagram.
- Isabel’s favorite podcasts to listen to while pinching pots are 2 Dope Queens and WTF with Marc Maron for laughs and Sword and Scale and Casefile for spooky, true-crime stories.
Our intro music, “Butterfield East,” is written and performed by The Soulful Saints. Because what’s a great show without a catchy theme song?
