The beauty of rustic pottery...

Our town has a pottery center that sells pottery created by local artists. I finally had time to stop in one day recently, just to have a look around, and came out with several wonderful pieces. While I am quite girly and feminine in most of my tastes, I like my pottery a bit rustic. 
The man who created these pieces happened to be working in the shop that day, so I had a chance to meet him and talk for a bit about his work, which I absolutely loved. I wound up coming home with a couple of mugs ~ perfect for some hot apple cider or a cup of hot tea this autumn ~ a little tea bag holder and a sugar bowl. I also fell in love with this little round casserole dish, which has turned out to be perfect for making macaroni and cheese for two.

I can’t wait for cooler weather so I can sit on the porch with a friend and enjoy something hot out of these beautiful mugs. 
Wishing all of you a lovely day...
