You might not remember, but ages ago I blogged about Shane Norrie's pottery. It was back in my "early" days of blogging (i.e. embarassingly awkward, completely un-read posts), but he spotted the post and even left a comment!
Even though his work is affordable, we saved our pennies and finally, six months later, bought some pieces of our own. I picked out two pieces (and my mom gifted us the third) at a gallery in our hometown because the selection is great and the gallery owner offered her invaluable assistance. It was very difficult to whittle down my selection - I could have bought every piece.
Although yesterday's unpacking and putting-life-back-in-order project was slow going (I have a cold, and jet lag and went 28 days without cleaning - I think I forgot how), I did manage to unpack and photograph the new pottery pieces. And that little tiny corner of the house is now orderly and tidy . . . because I shoved everything out of the way so I could snap this photo. Hey, its progress!
