Picasso

inspired by this post by lauren about francoise gilot i decided to do some vintage picasso hunting – and of course the life archives delivered. picasso lived in the town of vallauris on the french riviera for 7 years where he created ceramics at the madoura workshop (amongst other things of course – the man was nothing if not prolific). francoise is pictured in this series of photographs taken in 1949 by gjon mili, though she eventually left picasso after a myriad of infidelities.

i’m one of those heathens who never ever makes tea in a teapot. i even sometimes leave the tea bag in my cup while i’m drinking it (gasp!) it would probably make more sense to start making tea like a civilized person, as it would mean that i could have 2… maybe 3 cups at a time. this is a good plan.

click on the teapots if you wish to buy them

ps: have you checked out the tea tags group at flickr? yes, tea tag enthusiasts. believe it.

beccy ridsdel‘s ceramics are crazy surgical masterpieces – i love the way the white peels away to reveal the florals beneath.
