A delightful discovery ~ black wood panels and purple figs by herriott grace. What a treat to discover such a beautiful story.

And who is Herriott Grace? It’s a venture of father and daughter, Lance and Nikole Herriott.

They live 3400 kilometers apart, and don’t see each other very often. The father is a craftsman, and one day he began sending hand carved spoons to his daughter. His daughter loved the spoons and wanted to share them with the rest of the world. The father explained to his daughter that he only wanted to sell to people that would understand the time he had spend and the effort he had placed. And together, they opened the small online shop Herriott Grace.

And with a story like that, my heart just melts.

Many who know of Herriott Grace know of Nikole, but she wanted us to get to know her dad, too.

So Nikole flew to BC with filmmaker John Cullen where they spent 10 days with Nikole’s dad, making a documentary.

 Be inspired by the Herriott Grace story, and watch the film.

And now I’m going down the rabbit hole! I’m always intrigued how the internet connects ~ one link, then another and whoosh… taken away to discover new inspirations. I’ll elaborate on this joyful discovery in the next post.
