2010: A Tea Service Odyssey.

Dalston is the best hood for treasure! This conclusion is based on two trips that have yielded the prettiest things we own here — the first haul included a happy-making variety of blue and white china (working class Willow patterns and informal Portuguese platters and anal German geometrics).
Then on Sunday, it was English roses, all the way: an Aynsley tea cup set for £25, and a too-girly Wedgewood bud vase. Saty kindly looked the other way on this one.
Especially after I found him a world clock of time zones. Our friends have scattered all over the world in the last two years, to seek fame and fortune. Hong Kong to Berlin to Tehran, and many metropolises in between. What would otherwise be a hipster accessory now actually makes sense for us to own. I named it HAL.
P.S. Saty just walked by and groaned at my title for this post.
Ha! I aim to please.

    I’ll skip the Aynsley but that teapot looks pretty sweet.
