A TALE IN TILES

My Marrakesh holiday was packed full of busy, bustling souks, tasty tagines, hanging in our riad, hammam-ing, snake-charmers, getting lost down pink-shaded dusty lanes, rugs (so many rugs), donkeys, gobbling down dates and catching precious winter sun. However it seems like all I photographed were the tiles - intricate, colourful, endlessly-clever tiles. Here they are plus a couple of other snaps I managed to squeeze in from Marrakesh's medina, Djemaa El-Fna square, Jardin Majorelle, Bahia Palace and Saadian Tombs

OBSESSED: PEDLARS

Timing is everything. And exactly why I missed out on this awesome vintage sign from Pedlar's. Looks like this ship has already sailed. A lesson in shopping for one-offs. Buy now or regret later...
However Pedlar's have even more fantastic vintage sign finds on their Vintage Live section so keep an eye out for new additions before they are gone gone gone too.

Here's some non-mugs too because look:

OBSESSED: KEEP COMPANY

You're going to like these - promise. My current obsession is with Toronto based ceramicists Keep Company and their beautiful illustrations of the *best* animals. Their sweetly simple shapes and perfectly captured creatures (and who couldn't resist swans, cats, tigers and foxes?!) have put them at the very top of my wish list right now. Be quick though these are carefully handmade by Keep Company in Canada and sell out fast (as they should!).
