I just can't get enough of West German Pottery!
Here are my lastest recruits to the collection, the lovely mustard yellow with pressed patterns, a nice place for the glaze to pool with the slender handle and the blue ombre with raised geometric patterns.
I purchased them from an etsy store called Eclectivist,
Kasia was lovely to deal with and she packaged them well and it was a really great transaction, I warn you though, if you click on the link you might be lighter in the pocket? or a least add her shop to your favourites, remember it's Christmas in July soon!
(note to those of you in the northern hemisphere, Christmas in July, is an Aussie thing, we have the traditional Christmas dinner in our winter because December time can be just too hot!)
The lovely Dana from Mid2Mod awarded me with an award!
I'm very pleased and touched that she thought of me amongst her choices
Recipients of the award are asked to tell seven things about themselves, so here goes!
1- I was born in England in 1975, to an English Father and an Anglo Indian Mother, I married a Scotsman and made an Australian!
2- I wear a ring on my thumb and have done since my early twenties, I have not taken it off and I think I never will.
3- I studied Pottery at University and in my honours year, one of my works was bought by Dame Elizabeth Murdoch, a great philanthropist for the Arts.
4- I heart Sting big time! Everything he does is magic!
5- At school, I was happiest in the Art room or the library.
6- I married in a green dress, made from a Vogue pattern by a dear friend.
7- I draw everyday.
