I have a friend who only stocks her cupboards with handmade pieces of pottery. All of her mugs, plates and bowls are an eclectic mix made in the hands of various potters. She said most of the pieces she picked up at garage sales and flea markets...occasionally she would splurge on a piece from a studio.
It felt special to eat at her house...even if we were only dining on nachos and iced-water (gotta love college memories). The pieces were so beautiful. I decided I wanted to do that too. Maybe someday. Picture via DesignMom.
