The West German Pottery Empire Expands…

…Taking over the house once again!

Well, Aidan arrived back at 2am yesterday morning, literally fizzing over with excitement to be back (“I drank 2 litres of Coke to keep awake…”); and we did stay away, until five in the morning! We resisted the urge to unpack the car in the dead of night, restraining ourselves until it got light at least. Yesterday was spent unwrapping, photographing and identifying as many pieces as we could. We eventually finished at about eleven o’clock last night!

Here’s a sneaky preview of the West German pottery that he brought back:

I’ve deliberately left off pictures of some of the most amazing finds as Aidan wants to put them onto the Pottery and Glass forum first. It’s only fair as he did go all the way to Germany by himself! Let’s just say, some of the pots he brought back are the best I’ve ever seen in real life. I’m a little bit too excited by them!

The new car – Wanda – appears to have done very well:

If anybody asks, she is most definitely a car and not a van… How many pieces of retro pottery, lamps, glass vases, pictures etc., etc.,  can you fit into a Kangoo? The answer is quite a lot. She wasn’t filled up to the rafters like Tina used to be and we’ve counted about 250 pieces as an estimate. This includes some whopping lampshades that we used to have to leave.

I think Aidan stayed in some interesting places whilst he was in Germany:

This is a monastery near to Frankfurt. When Aidan rang me the night he was staying there, he’d been shown to his room by the head priest and had to dodge a wedding on the way in!

This was a grotto in the woods near to the monastery. I’m so jealous when I look at these pictures, I really wish I was there!
