Splendida Italia!


We are thrilled that Pottery Cottage (our home in Oxfordshire before we moved to beautiful Herefordshire earier this year) has been featured in the December issue of Italy's Country Living magazine or 'Vivere Country' as it is known. (It is also featured in the December issue of France's very own Country Living magazine known as 'Vivre a la Campagne'.) We have a magnificent spread and here are just some of the pages from the feature.


The original feature was in the BBC Homes and Antiques magazine in March 2009. However, the Italian and French magazines don't appear to limit the number of pages for their homes and they have featured just about every photo taken so we have a NINETEEN page spread! How super is that?!

This all came as a complete surprise, one of our lovely Italian customers kindly sent me a copy and we have been enjoying the many photos (although translating the text has been a task!)



Having moved to an even older property which we are slowly renovating, most of our very own beloved vintage treasures are residing in boxes for now - seeing all those lovely photos made me want to rip open every box and delve inside to retrieve all of our beautiful textiles, paintings and accessories! But I will have to be patient until we have filled holes, repaired timbers and painted walls and floors.

We also have a 'rave review' in the new VintagExplorer magazine.


Launched in October, the publication covers a three month period and is packed full of interesting features and dates for fairs.


The magazine is available to buy online or can be found on display at various fairs, antique shops and auction houses around the country.


Despite all this excitement, we have found time to seek out more vintage goodies for the website and added some gorgeous things to the shop today, including stunning textiles, superb paintings and a host of individual and special homewares; do drop by if you can!
