day 67 – four pieces of ceramic dishware to pay hommage to…

For my first ‘four’ I’ve decided to gather four broken ceramic dishware that up until last Wednesday, were fully intact. The sky decided to fall in my kitchen last week and due to a negligent unknown carpenter, about 80% of my dishware was lost. I heard a crash and walked into my kitchen to find my entire cupboard unit had fallen off the wall and the kitchen was filled with glass. This is an hommage to those favourite dishes lost.

    oh my goodness. So sorry to hear you lost all that.

    If you need some dishes, I have a cute set (peacocks!) that you could have.

    Wow Kerri thats so generous! Thank you for your offer but luckily I think I will be compensated and I wouldn’t want to take a pretty peacock set away from you 🙂
