10 awesome homes where i wouldn’t mind being invited in for tea…
but don’t let me stay too long or i might pitch a tent and claim squatter’s rights.

Nemadji Pottery

one of the things i’d like to do at home is build up my ceramics & glassware collection. i’ve been buying a few knick knacks here and there, which is always a slow process as you tend to find them sporadically (and need to resist the urge to buy an entire collection that you won’t necessarily love years down the line). so when i spotted these colourful marbled pots on Etsy i kind of fell in love, and did a bit of reading up on their origin. found this little piece of Fab.com which explains,

some of you may remember my last Rewardrobe post, which was exactly a year ago today. so much has changed in my life since then – i moved to a new city & into a new flat, cut down hours at my day job and took on more freelance work. consequently my finances have been geared toward setting up home and other things that are way more important than clothes. like buying plants and making cheese pies.
