Moving in day arrives...
Imagine the scene: four trucks and box after box after box and the same question for two days
'Mam, where would you like it?' Every box seemed to unfold yet another set of
forgotten china...good grief. How much china does a girl need?
Then the doorbell rang....of dear, I forgot about this one.
Earlier in the week I read a story about a historic pottery that the Prince of Wales is rallying behind. Like many small businesses, it appears they have run into financial uncertainty. Prince Charles is trying to save the UK's last working Victorian pottery from closure. 'For more than 100 years artisans have been turning out sought-after Burleigh earthenware from the kilns of Middleport'. The Prince's Regeneration Trust and a grant from English Heritage Trust have both made an offer to rescue the business.
So, what is a girl to do when her heart goes out to this business, and the beatuiful objects they create? Make a purchase and I love it. Albeit, a small one, but I am now a fan and will continue to follow.
I hope you will too!
(I guess the solution to my unpacking woes is to purchase more china cabinets because you never know when you will have the house (or two) that will fit it all..perfectly!)
More from Burleigh
Back to the boxes...this was a nice little break from it all.
Have a great day!
