One of my favorite quotes is from Socrates: "Wisdom begins in wonder." This beautiful little pot is my first gift for our sweet little one. We have been waiting a little over 18 months now. The agency said the average wait is about 18-24 months. So we have been getting things together so that we can spend our time bonding with baby and not painting etc... This planter was made by Lori Koop. I love her work. It's magical. Incredibly simple and earthy. All I did was give her a basic idea of size and mentioned Socrates' quote. This wonderful wonderful planter arrived today. Lori had placed these little gifts inside. So absolutely perfect! These are the things that a child (of any age) would pick up and tuck away. Secret treasures that arouse wonder. Look at the tiny little stars dancing around the words! Thank you Lori!!
