January 26, 2010Bark Monsters and Undead Dogs: Pottery by Barbara Donovan

I have a good friend who has perhaps a bigger Etsy addiction than I do. We both probably need to join some kind of support group or something. But it’s thanks to her I recently found the colorful and quirky pottery of Baton Rouge’s Barbara Donovan. Barbara’s whimsical, folk-artish pieces make me smile.

My favorite thing in Barbara’s shop? The Zombie Love coffee mug. (As the item’s description truthfully states, “Undead pets need love, too.”)


If undead canines ain’t really your thang, there are plenty of other pups in Donovan’s shop to amuse and delight, such as the Bark Monster (below). I think I live with know this dog.

    The blue mug to the right makes me laugh- if it was possible for a dog on a mug to look dignified… :)

    OMG. I can’t believe you outed me. What happened to the “Anonymous” in Shopaholics Anonymous?
