Our Other Loves….

Artisan Pottery from The Thoughtful Potter is definitely on our must have list this month! Beautifully crafted and the perfect summer gift. 

Each hand-thrown pottery piece is made in Deborah’s log cabin studio in her countryside garden. Every pot is handmade meaning they are all unique with a focus on artisan techniques and unique designs. You can choose from happy, colourful pots to make you smile to botanical pieces where flowers grown in my garden have been hand-pressed into the clay. Every pot is stamped with a thoughtful word or message to uplift and inspire your day.


We are never far from a bunch of lavender! This month we are using it in our cooking. cream, creme brûlée, roast lamb chops. Lavender goes beautifully with it all. We buy edible lavender in large bags.
