I wasn’t going to be writing columns while I was away but sometimes, you just have to. Thursday saw us heading up to New London to a favourite shopping place………Village Pottery. I discovered this shop last year while cruising the internet looking for unique and different places to visit when we were on the Island.
I asked our girls to choose their favourite designs, colours, whatever and they did. The choice of purchase would be mine. I bought them each a vase. This year I had decided to pick up Heather/Peter a utensil holder for their kitchen as Peter is making all new cupboards. It will look totally different when its done and a few new pieces of lovely pottery will only add to the room. Maybe I should go back and pick up some salt and pepper shakers too. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
Kristina phoned just before we left and asked if we would pick up a piece for her. She said she would really like a pitcher, but a utensil holder would be okay too. When I walked in the door of the pottery shop, I saw the pitcher and that was it. This in real life is beautiful and Kristina is going to love it. The inside is fabulous too…..
What did I buy? I added to my yellow…….new salt and pepper shakers to go with my candle holder I bought last year.
I also purchased a yarn bowl………..yellow of course……
I have already started my knitting so this will come in handy while we travel. Makes it easier for Misty to get a hold of the yarn too. I bought two other yarn bowls for friends and a new mug for another friend, although I could have bought her a yarn bowl too.
Upstairs at the Village Pottery there is a room with other things…….fabulous things……..fabric art!!! You all know how much I love fabric art. This is our souvenir piece for this trip. It is by Margaret England and I’ve wanted a work of art by her for a long time. This to me says Prince Edward Island. A treasure to be sure along with my new pottery.
BTW, Polly got to visit the store too. Tomorrow she will share everything she saw inside.
