Alphabe Thursday.




















Please click to enlarge.




Today we have to study the letter X for Ms Matlock's class. Now that is a very difficult letter but I found a word : X-tra. This is an  Xtra special collage of photo's I made in one of my favorite shops here in Spain. It is a ceramics shop, more an Xtra large shop with so many beautiful ceramics. I can spend hours there. Let me tell you some more.
The ceramics town of La Bisbal d'Emporda has been a major centre for the production of ceramics since the 18th century. Is is famed internationally for prodocing a wide variety of ceramics from tradional earthenware and decorative pottery to paving tiles , garden pots and building materials.
As I love  teacups and dinner ware I am in heaven when I am in just this one shop. And let me tell you there are so many of them all selling beautiful ceramics.
These photo's show only a little of what this shop sells. It is loaded. This is just an impression.
And by the way, I didn't buy anything yesterday.
See you next week.

Please click twice on the photo and everything will be very clear to see.
Riet

De collage is om te watertanden. En dat je niets gekocht hebt, nou dat vind ik knap Riet.

Schitterend Riet, letterlijk luillekkerland, wat een SUPER winkel zeg. Prachtig deze collage en wat zou ik daar graag een aantal uurtjes rondstruinen.

Ik denk ook dat er maar weinig mensen zijn die met lege handen deze zaak verlaten.

Heb nog een fijne tijd,

Liefs Josephine

Hi Riet, I'd love to go the this shop. I love looking at ceramics ware. I guess I've always love them and majored in Ceramics at uni... so I can spend hours in a shop like this!

Happy Weekend, Ev

What a wonderful selection of ceramics, Riet! I would have beentempted to buy some of the pieces but I know how hard that is when traveling with a suitcase.

Have a lovely weekend!

Hoi Riet,

Wat een mooi servies goed! Ook ik heb daar een zwak voor :-)!

Jenny said...

Oh my gosh! That shop is incredible. I was going to tell you my favorite but as I kept looking I realized that almost every single one of them is!

It would be so fun to have enough storage to be able to have many, many sets to change on whim and mood!

This was lovely.

Thanks for an Xcellent X post!
