Bio
Paloma's Nest is the creative work of Caroline Colom Vasquez, an artist and designer living in the vibrant city of Austin, Texas. Paloma's Nest is dedicated to creating modern heirlooms; pieces for the home, and for the heart. Each Paloma’s Nest piece is designed and individually hand-crafted with care, pride, and passion. Ceramic bowls, tiles, and decorative pieces are intended to last for generations, and so they are crafted with the finest natural materials available, including porcelain and clay, wood, paper, and cloth. The inspiration for Paloma’s Nest lies in the purity of the materials used, and the idea that something so simple can be so bold. Caroline strives to create items of meaning and purpose from the materials, while leaving the characteristics true and pure. By adding text to these materials, written ideas, feelings, and daydreams are given a peaceful place to rest. Many pieces in the Paloma’s Nest line are available with custom texts. This gives special meaning for the recipient, and by adding names or dates, it is ensured that the piece will be cherished for years to come. Every Paloma’s Nest piece-no matter the material- is hand cut, free form, with no pattern. This gives each piece its own variation in the size, shape, and layout of the text. Recycled, up-cycled, and biodegradable products are prominent throughout the line, and in the extraordinary gift packaging in which pieces arrive, and the studio is powered 100% by Renewable Wind Energy- minimizing the footprint left behind by the production of these beautiful pieces.

Favorite Materials
clay, porcelain, paper, wood, fabric, words, passion, history, purpose, courage

My favorite part of the day is when my kids get home from school-I miss them when they are gone.

When I get my 2 year old out of his bed in the morning and get such a good smile and a hug! I love it!!!!!

My favorite part of the day is my drive home. It's not that long, but I am alone with my thoughts and the radio and that's all!

Definitely when my baby girl wakes up in the morning, b/c she always greets us w/ the HUGEST smile.

The best part of my day is waking up to my amazing boyfriend's face - snores, morning breath, and all!

My favorite part of every day is the few minutes of "me time" I get when I first wake up...whether its while I'm in the shower or after I drop my son off at school. It's always nice to have some time for yourself, even if its just 3 minutes!

Jenny said...

When I get to kiss my darling baby boy every night before I go to sleep next to the man of my dreams, my husband Jeremy. I am so blessed.

The Brennan's said...

I love walking in to my son's room to wake him up. He's the latest sleeper in the house and loves everyone in his room to wake him up.

My favorite part of the day is Sunset - the beautiful colors of the sky over a lovely Southern California ocean setting is so peaceful. And this I am blessed to see from my back patio. It never ceases to amaze me.

When the kids are asleep and the house is totally quiet. And then again when they wake up and it's happy chatter.

LivingInspired said...

Sitting in front of my computer with a cup of tea, perusing all my favorite blogs and discovering new ones. That's my favorite part of everyday.

Diana said...

When I check on my children before I go to bed. They always look so sweet when they are sleeping!!

jeanine said...

When I get to tuck my daughters in at night.

rebecca said...

I look forward to the hours after everyone is in bed and I can tuck myself away with a book or at the computer to catch up. I enjoy every part of the day, but have come to cherish MY TIME.

Ginny said...

My favorite part of the day is when I first wake up. Early enough to enjoy the sunrise with my cup of coffee. This is the time of the day that I can enjoy the peace and beauty of the day before starting the crazy work schedule I have.

shaka said...

my favourite part of my day would be watching my toddler fall asleep. I love how his eyes get heavy and how he nods his head down and then wakes up and repeats it. toooo cute and sweet.

bluejeanprimitives said...

Beth said...

When everyone is sleeping and I have complete silence!

Amber said...

Around 6 Pm when my husband gets home...Awww

Natalie said...

Right now, my favorite part of the day is when my 3 month old wakes up in the morning...she will just sit there and smile for the first ten minutes that she is awake. It puts a smile on my face...a great way to start any day.

Kotori said...

My one favorite part, not of every day, but Saturday is the early morning when the soft sounds of kid feet pad down the hallway towards our bed. There's lots of cuddling and snuggling and little bit of dozing while the kids happily partake of Saturday morning cartoons just like I did as a kid.

If I have to choose my favorite part of everyday it would actually be the opposite. When the kids are freshly down in their beds and my hubby and I crash land on the couch for some serious alone time.

YZgirl4 said...

Bedtime because I love spending the time with my daughter one on one and talking about our days highlights. It is something I want to continue doing throughout our years.

In the morning, when my alarm clock goes off and my dog jumps on the bed and gives me Good Morning Kisses!

Lisa said...

My favorite part of the day after dinner. We're full and content, and the dog and cats are snuggled up with us as we read or watch TV.

Amy said...

My favorite part of the day is when I am at the barn with my dog and all my horses and I am just looking out at all the open space. Its a time I can just relax, slow down, and take a look around. I can appreciate my surroundings with the things I love the most.

Gabriella said...

fav part of the day: midnight smoking on my patio.. hahaha

Kara said...

My favorite part of the day is the moment my husband gets home from work. It's only been a few hours since we last saw each other, but I'm always really happy to see him!

Naptime!!!

Reva Skie said...

I love those moments when you wake up before the alarm and are truly awake and rested. I don't encounter them every day but it is nice to wake up a bit early and just enjoy "being" and not rush.
