Autumnal Pottery

This is one of my favourite times of the year. Once half term is over, it’s the countdown to Christmas, Halloween and Bonfire Night. There’s something about the smell in the air at this time of year: crisp, leafy, smoky… it reminds me of walking to school as a teenager, wrapped up in my thick…

Rain, drizzle, precipitation… whatever you want to call it; it has rained, rained and rained today. I left early¬†yesterday morning with some gigantic parcels in tow to post before going to…

Tina’s Potty Pottery Roadtrip…

Early yesterday morning, we arrived back from our latest German adventure with Tina (the KA) full to the brim. Another fantastic trip and yet more fantastic, retro goodies. We left on Friday evening, driving down to Dover to get the 2am ferry to Dunkirk. Aidan always does the driving (as I can’t) so we have…
