We are very fortunate to live in a special village and even luckier to have creative friends and neighbours. Just down the road live a family who have a talent for pottery and painting . This weekend they had an open day and i decided i would tempt myself and go along. It was hard not to fall in love with it all and i did try to convince Steve that we really needed this bowl that was larger than our sink. I managed to show some restraint and stick with a jug and pot for my tea bags. I have to say i take great pleasure at looking at them , i just wish the kitchen could match the same chic style.
