Crockery counselling: hello Madeleine Boulesteix
A reader writes:
I left this plate in the sink to wash as it had just come from a flea market. I then dropped a mug on it and it was gone before even being washed.
I felt very dumb for doing this. It cost next to nothing as it was in a collection of a lot of grubby stuff for €10 in total. I love these French stencilled plates, but they aren’t very robust. It took a few days to let go of, but the pieces are going in the potential mosaics bucket.
Thank you Madeleine, we hope you feel better for sharing.
