A few weeks ago I went on my first French Pottery Shopping adventure.
There is a very small village in France called Soufflenheim.
It is only an hour and a half away from us, making it an easy day trip.
I was so excited about the pottery that I didnt take but one picture! =/
But I can tell you that this is a super cute, French town with pottery stores
lining the streets. There is a creperie in the middle of town, which is where
we had lunch. I had a savory crepe for lunch and a delicious chocolate banana
crepe for dessert.
The French style pottery is very appealing to me because most of the patterns are
bold and colorful. They had so many beautiful things and I wanted to buy so much
more than I did. I limited myself to three pieces plus a Christmas ornament and two
gifts. A group of my friends are planning another trip later this month and if Im
still feeling well, Im planning on going with them!
There were a couple of things that I really wanted, but talked myself out of.
I rarely buy things for the house. I love new decor, but Im not really a fan of
buying decorations for the house, nor do I consider myself very good at picking
out coordinating pieces. So, I dont feel bad buying this pottery since I rarely shop,
especially now that we've moved to Europe.
This pottery will also be a great souvenir, a reminder of our time here in Europe.

colorful it is!

I dont have any photos of the ornaments because they are gifts and I dont want
to give away the surprise since the person/people who will receive them read this blog!
