What better way to remember the blue skies of Provence than a little bit of blue and white faience from Moustiers-Sainte-Maire?
The streets of that lovely hilltop town are lined with Faienceries shops and studios, so it took a while to select the one that would be the perfect place to treasure hunt. In the end, we chose Bondil à Moustiers because the people there took so much time to lovingly explain the art of the traditional styles that caught my eye. I noticed later that La Bastide de Moustiers had deployed their creations as signing for the various cottages and rooms around the inn.
After what must have seemed like hours of debate to Mr. H, we chose a set of plates for cheese or salad or dessert.
Each one hand selected. Each one a little different.
I love their shape and that they pair as beautifully with dahlias as they do with sunflowers.
I have a feeling they'll be part of our dinner parties for years to come, and I'm so glad I can share with my guests a little bit of what I love about Provence.
