pots, plates and blogs

I have added two new links to people sharing their creative lives with us on their blogs. "Dear Ada" is blog from America, about food, landscape, craft and flowers. "Red Felt Flower" is a Australian site exploring the details of life through fabric, trims, ribbons, friends, recipes and afternoon tea. I am so jealous of Red Felt Flower's afternoon teas, she frequently includes photos of deliscious treats from the time of the day when you need a little pick-me-up.

Lena Corwin from New york designs funky, limited edition melamine plates. I love this one.

British potter Sarah Dunstan is inspired by architectural detail and industrial wreckage to create these funky, delicate pieces.

Joanna Howells is one of my favourite potters. Her porcelain pieces combine form and function. I used one of her jugs last year in England and the long, pale blue body reminded me of flower stalks.

Hi Shannon,

Greatings from a very sunny UK. You inspired me with your blog to set up one of our own to keep our family and friends up to date whilst we are over here.
I love what you put on your blog. It makes you think about the beauty that is in the world and how each one of us sees it differently. Thank you for doing that.
