Let’s do this! Time to go and get a leap on 2017.

My love of china , and especially blue and white, is well-known, so of course I made a beeline for these in the Met.
Harvest ring bowl, photo July 2016.
A recent discovery from Instagram, which fits nicely with my ceramics and colour obsessions.

I absolutely love the colour of this yellow dish, but am more ambivalent about the shape, which is self-consciously ugly when seen plain in the white or grey colour ways.
It reminds of the bit in The Girls of Slender Means where the narrator reflects that the dark brown wallpaper the girls hate in 1945 will be what they choose for themselves in 1963 “it having become smart”.
Sintra dish by Canvas Home, from their 2014 collection.
A range that featured in one of my earliest posts, I like the simplicity of this small pouring bowl.

Another spate of ceramic obsession in this house… First up, this bird on the wing by John Derian for Astier de Villatte.
Next, two speckeledy plates from the Falcon enamel range. All from Liberty’s.
Finally, another piece in my ongoing Marimekko yearning.
I’ve a great weakness for Emma Bridgewater’s mugs, thoughtfully fed by Jenny and propped up in between birthdays with visits to Sophia’s parents’ house and the Fortnum and Mason’s sale. I couldn’t resist this ‘Peace and Joy’ mug.
I didn’t see the jugs, but aren’t they cheery too? I like the sole, fat angel and dancing crew equally.
Of course the blue and white ranges and are lovely
but in deepest winter, ‘Marmalade’ and hens seems a good way to go.
