I am struck by over sized crockery. In pretty colours it looks fabulous and is very practical to store smaller items in.
This teacup has polka dots on the side and reminds me of Alice in Wonderland. In it I store all manner of sticky taoes and ribbons and on the saucer sit my USB's and memory cards; safe and easy to retrieve.
Have you been a one of the pottery cafes that are springing up all over? You can go in and choose a piece of decorate and fire in a kiln. I choose a super sized cappuchino mug in which to store my brushes. More polka dots and apples make it super cute and super unique. As it is quite tall, I can chuck in all my paint brishes regardless of size.
