My two new ceramic purchases arrived from Orvieto yesterday. Getting large boxes from Italy is always a thrill, even when I know the contents. Last year I purchased the large ceramic deep "baking dish" on the right. The platter on the left is one of my two new pieces.
I also bought this new soup tureen.
I love sunflowers, lemons and poppies, and they all remind me of some of my favorite parts of Italy. I also love the twisty handles of this platter.
I really like how the artist depicted this sunflower's profile.
Brad was pleasantly surprised when he got home from work, and saw the newly decorated entry hall. And he thought I had no more room...hehehe.
