Online store Find - Artistica.com

Everyone knows my weakness for pottery, and especially chunky hand painted Italian and Spanish ceramics. Granted, I only own a few (actually 2) pieces of the real stuff, (a hand painted coffee mug from Torrefazione in Pioneer Square, Seattle and a fat water jug from Deruta, also in Seattle) and the irony is that I paid so much for them, I don't use them for fear of dropping them or chipping them!!!

Anyway, long story short.....while surfing the web for some oil cruets, I came across this site and did a double take! You know sometimes you are asked, what will you do if you win a million bucks...??? Well, I would buy up this entire store...or at least half the store cos the prices are so high that's all I could get for a million bucks!

So in case you are wondering what I am talking about, take a look.....













Anyway, as it turns out, what I wanted (pic #1) is way too pricey...I could go to Italy for that amount!! So I am just going to have to add it to my wish list, or win that lottery!!!!!

Ain't that the truth! I have a new found love for polish pottery, but the prices are too steep! Anyway, I'm glad it keeps me grounded-- I have serious pack-rat-ism and more stuff only equals more clutter!

I love Polish pottery, the colours remind me so much of Rajasthani glazed pottery work. But they are SO expensive, even at Costco!
