Happy holidays, yes we have been having fun, seeing old friends and new and old places.
Our trip to the Amalfi coast lived up to our expectations and was wonderful, hot and beautiful. We were also able to spend a night in Pompeii and visited the Pompeii ruins which are a lot bigger than I imagined and we also went up Mount Vesuvius which is black and steaming and offers up great views of Napoli below as well (inbetween the clouds).
Along the coast the 'blues' are fabulous, the blue sea and the blue sky, we took in the views on the coast road bus (not for those fearful of heights or prone to travel sickness) and then on the boat to Capri. Positano was our favourite overall and we will remember the steps forever, it helps to be fit when visiting the Amalfi coast !
There was plenty of ceramic interest as with all the mediterrean areas I have visited, as with Turkey, Crete and Tunisia lots of lovely hand painted tiles and pottery with vivid colours and in addition the Roman Catholic churches which are very ornate. Lots of inspiration for future designs!
As it's holiday season Joanna London Print Decorated Ceramics has taken it easy as well with no planned events or new developments during August but we are swiftly moving towards September when some new projects are planned.
I shall be updating my SALE page for sales starting in September, a kind of end of summer sale rather than a traditional summer sale so be sure to watch that space for bargains and gift ideas.
