Polish Pottery

Above is the plates I bought. I have matching saucers and bowls as well. I bought a setting of 6 of these. My friend Linda over at: http://, has the same exact set, and told me where to get it! :) Thanks Linda! I plan on getting another set of 6, not sure if I'm going to stick with this green flowered pattern or go with the blue one or there's also a really pretty butterfly one, that you'll see I got a piece of below! I'll decide on my next trip to Poland! :)

This is my pitcher, definately the "closest" piece of typical Polish Pottery that I bought on Tuesday. I really like it and although it's busy, it's definately not near as busy as so many other pieces they had!! It seems to tie in well with the rest of the pottery I bought!

I love this ladel and spoon rest and if I could have found plates, etc to match these exactly I would have gotten them.

This is the butterfly dish I got. It's really beautiful and 100% different from typical Polish Pottery.

Definately one of my favorite pieces, with the lid off, the inside of the roaster has the same flower design that goes on the edge of the outside as well. I can't wait to use it!

I'm looking forward to my next trip to Poland, but it's not a trip I'll be making in the very near future, if nothing else than I had way too much fun spending money and it's just so easy to do that! I bought a few other things as well. A trivet that matches my dishes, except that it doesn't have the green flowers, but has dark blue, light blue, brown and cream/peach colored flowers with green leaves mixed in, but the flowers are the same pattern as the plates! I also got a beautiful windchime. I got my brother's daughter's tea sets, which will be part of their birthday gifts in September. I also got my best friend and sister in law a gift, initially the gift for my sil was going to another friend, but I remembered my SIL's birthday is coming up next month and I felt horrible that I didn't get her something. I can always get my other friend something later and she wasn't expecting anything it was just one of those last minute things. My best friend has the link to this blog so I can't say what I got them! :) Once she has it, I'll post a picture of it here! I also got my mom a Coffee filter holder, I'll have to take a picture of it and post it up tomorrow along with the tea sets!

I told my mom when her and my dad come over next year, we're going to Poland! I know that the typical pottery will not be what she likes, but she definately likes my plates and was excited to hear they come in blue, so I have a feeling. She liked the butterflies too! I have a feeling she'll find she likes a lot of things! My dad may end up not so happy with me for showing this to her! ROFL! My dad's very easy going so it's not that big of a deal!

Well, I'm off I can't believe it's already 10 pm! Where did the day go?

We lived in Germany when I was a kid; we only visited a few places while there, but I don't think we left Germany. Kind of sad to think of it now! I hope you're enjoying it--make the most of it! In 20 years in the USAF we never got an overseas the time I didn;t mind, but now I wish we had.

My family is from Poland and I have always wanted to have something that was really Polish. After seeing your pottery I am in love with it. Can I get any in the states? Thanks for visiting me BTW. Hope you had a happy 4th and God bless your husband for doing a job that not many people want. May he stay safe and return to you soon.
