75 DAY CHALLENGE PART 2

 
Th collection having started with the casserole dish from Saint Amand, I wanted to add a few pieces to make a set so when we went to France for a cemping holiday we visited Gien where Bob had bought the big pot. The shop was on the side of the river Cher and spread out all over the wide pavement with wooden tables laden with this lovely pottery.
 
 
I went a bit mad and bought several different sizes of bowls, plates, egg cups and saucers, as well as these pretty jugs all in the same natural matt glazed light terracotta finish.
 
 
Another French holiday took us to Beg Miel in Brittany and I fell for this lovely lamp holder.  It's quite large and at the time I made a macramé shade for it which has now been replaced with a modern cream one.
 
 
Another holiday souvenir but I've forgotten where the salad dressing pot came from although I can clearly remember one of the girls buying the little perfume oil pot at Lacaneau Ocean during our last family camping holiday together.
 
 
 
This is one of a pair of lamp holders which we still use today, originally bought for our new upstairs bedroom when we converted our bungalow in 1979.
