Earth Tones

Tsuchikara Pottery, is one of my favorite Etsy shops. The pottery offered by Ippuku is both rustic and delicate, and it always comes in such pretty paper that I don't want to unwrap it for a while... I just bought this little pitcher; with its graceful lines, it is a genuine adornment for my kitchen.

As you know, I love vintage hats. I got this original 1930's skullcap at the Green Flea market in New York last month. 100% wool. I find it youthful and sassy.
Isn't it adorable?

I love that pitcher. Enjoy the weekend.

Both of you are adorable (a hat needing an animated head/face to fulfill its destiny:) I'm a big fan of pitchers, creamers, ewers...I've collected them from everywhere. Had to stop (for awhile) & cull out the best, but I use them too, flowers, etc. This is lovely & I shall check it out, though no real shopping for me right now. You & Tina Tarnoff at Thought Patterns find the best at etsy (I think so, anyway).

JL - mais moi j'aime bien le papillon!

GIULIA - yes, I love using pitchers for flowers too, it's so fresh! Very "English country house" if you see what I mean.

it is most adorable!

One of the great things about Western Australia and is that there are a lot of local ceramic artists here. These pieces remind of the kinds of pieces I've seen around here.

Mary-Laure said...

HILA - How cool; maybe it's the Asian influence? If I went to Western Australia I am sure I would return with luggage packed with ceramics.
