  1. I don’t think I’ve ever been to Borgh Pottery itself, but I’ve seen their beautiful pieces. I love those blue bowls!

    I came on to reply to your previous post, about your hectic week – to say Me Too, my life has been really too full and I miss having time to blog.

    But here you are already on to your next post! Hope things are a bit less crazy for you 🙂

    1. blue pottery or glass is lovely. things have settled down a bit and i’m having a relaxing day. it feels nice to write a blog again and to hear from friends. i feel a bit out of the loop when i’m away for a few days. i hope things slow down a bit for you too. it’s lovely to hear from you.

Looking forward to hearing from you
