WELL NOW ..... Have you ever let yourself get too hungry? Let the old blood sugar bottom out? Get desperate for food .... complete with the shakes and cold sweats? End up eating like a maniac and can't stop? Absolutely driven to eat?
UMMM ..... That's not exactly what happened. However, apparently we DID wait a little too long before we went shopping for decent plates and bowls and stuff like that. (We have been using some very special plates purchased from Cr*pTown Originals the first week we were here.) We just waited too long to replace them ......UNTIL YESTERDAY.
Yesterday we went to the Artesa factory. It really is quite amazing, especially if you are starving. There are so many beautiful patterns to choose from ...... really impossible to choose ...... so, as it turns out, we didn't bother actually choosing a pattern. Think eclectic.
They had lamps (need the wiring parts ....... no problem).
The first pic is of 6 of the 7 smaller ones we got. We also bought 2 larger ones.
Might have gotten a few bowls and platters.
Maybe even a vase or two.
I think that I counted 9 serving platters of various styles.
Or was that the serving bowls?
Plates, bowls, espresso and cappuccino cups,
strange little bowls for dip or something,
pottery glasses (uh, not made of glass) and other stuff too.
It was madness.
I did not take any pics of the flower pots that went directly to the balcony.
Yeah, we got some of those too.
Like children in a candy store.
AND ...... NOTHING MATCHES.
Some terms that do not come to mind here:
Self restraint, planning, self control, moderation, discretion.
But, we did have a ball!
