I've more than doubled my collection since last I posted. We've welcomed the additions of corn, strawberry, apple, and green and red (well, pink) cabbage. I'm also extending my collection to include 'assorted ceramics and pottery shaped like fruits and vegetables', mostly because other people have gifted me some lovely items that compliment my collection perfectly. Eagle eyed readers will notice my new adorable capsicum teapot, and orange bowl. (Sadly forgot to put the teapot and bowl into the family group photo, and I was too lazy to get them all down from the shelf again. I promise I love the teapot Lydia... but lazyyyyyy)
My favourite piece remains the cauliflower, the item that started my obsession, but aren't those cabbages divine? Unlike all of the others, I can attribute these to a maker: Bordallo Pinheiro (you can select English by clicking the little British flag), from Portugal. I'm tentatively keeping my eye on ebay to see if I can pick up additional pieces.
Although, ebay does have it's pitfalls. The pink tureen, did you notice anything? Let me show you how it arrived:
Absolutely devastating! I couldn't throw it away, I thought it made such a cute pairing to the green cabbage, and these puppies are rare! So down to Bunnings I went, and with a tube of epoxy, managed to piece it back together. Kind of. I've done a shitty job I know, but could you tell from a distance? I bet you couldn't. Just don't look too closely, k? It's only for decoration anyway.
