Recently I've found another interesting blog to follow ( like I need more!). Costas' Naturedigital has some wonderful photographs from his very photogenic homeland of Greece. I have many dear Greek friends here in Birmingham, and so I have been particularly interested in his blog. It reminded me that I visited Tsitalia recently. This is the place to go for fabulous pots, jars and urns of ALL sizes and shapes from Greece and Turkey . They also sell wonderful spices, olives and olive oil. I'll be shopping there more often as it's on the Southside, near my home.
The top photo is a weathered jar that I thought just so sculptural and beautiful. Yes, I wanted to take it right home-except there is this SIZE problem. At the bottom are threshing boards. Wikipedia says "they are obsolete farm implements used to separate the cereals from their straw." I wanted one of those too. I do a lot of threshing and I need a new one!
