I received a package yesterday afternoon from one of my instagram friends, the very talented Philippa Stanton also known as 5ftinf. She's very popular and well-loved, at last count she had 155 thousand followers. I've been following and loving her gorgeous table series for quite some time. Last winter, I gave into temptation and splurged on one her prints. I love it so much. One of these days, I suspect she'll publish the perfect coffee table book.
Philippa surprised me by sending an extra little treasure along with the calendar: a small, vintage ceramic dish with the words "ENGLAND" and "WADE" printed on the bottom. She knows how much I love antique pottery and was so generous and sweet to send me this dish. Thank you, thank you, Philippa!
Sadly, this little dish, that belonged to her grandmother, did not survive the overseas journey from England. I could just cry. I'm blaming it on drunken postmen and plan to mend it as soon as I buy the proper glue.
Klaus and I are looking forward to enjoying this calendar throughout the year.
