Watercolour crockery for summer dining

Every once in a while, something stops me in my tracks and I end up becoming totally fixated with it, until its mine.

It began with a cuddly monkey (called Lucy) — that had a yellow dummy in it’s mouth and a rose sprinkled bonnet and nappy — when I was around 8 years old.

Then a super-soft and snuggly faux-fur duffle coat, with a GINORMOUS hood, when I went off to university.

A pair of wooden Prada wedges from New York (still getting lots of wear after many years).

Cushions (there have been a LOT of these).

Numerous pairs of gorgeous sunglasses (generally spotted in The Sunglasses Hut in various airports — I’m a sitting duck in that kind of situation — no escape from this one).

Anyway. You get the picture.

I must say, it doesn’t happen that frequently but when it does it’s like a lightening bolt. I have my head totally and utterly turned and am totally intoxicated.

It happened again this week and I just thought I’d share. They say a problem shared is a problem halved, don’t they? My shopping addiction is definitely a problem if you ask my husband ;)

Anyway. I was browsing the Anthropologie website and came across the most beautiful painted crockery.

The most gorgeous Watercolour crockery


A thing of beauty, I think you’ll agree.

The watercolour trend is huge this summer.

I first spotted it at the Matalan Spring/Summer 16 show last year. Gorgeous watercolour paintings had made their way onto duvet covers and cushions and it was such a lovely change from graphic or geometric prints.


Lovely to see crockery getting the same treatment.

I can imagine a summer lunch table, set out with a white tablecloth, dotted with all these pretties.


We have our annual summer family barbecue happening this year and I’m just debating whether I can manage without at least one of those lovely plates.

One? ;)
