Driving, job, dog and pottery

Yet again I have to apologize for a whole week's absence from blogging. I've been spending a lot of time A) taking driving lessons, B) searching for a (new) part-time job and C) searching for a (new) dog. The latter activity being by far the most exciting one of the three. I might already have found a potential new family member; I'm going to see a 7 month old (short haired) fox terrier this weekend :-)

I could add a point D) to my list and that would be 'spending time at a local flea market'. The best bargain I found was this Figgjo set of two pots, a lidded jar and a creamer (I had the milk jug from before). The pattern design is Granada. It's a bit crazy, but I like it, particularly for the colors.

The second image here is another Figgjo thrift bargain, and my very first in the A la carte range. Looks like a good egg to me!

Lucky! Love the Figgjo. I never find this kind of thing when I thrift or hunt estate sales (which I do constantly for the Etsy shop).

Oj så fin! Og salt og pepperbøssen var også et funn! Selv suser jeg også rundt på loppemarkeder for tiden, hadde noen år jeg sluttet helt, men alltid gøy å finne små skatter ;)
