In the morning...

Is there anything better than a little espresso and steamed milk in the morning? I think I day dream about coffee more now that I'm pregnant and have given up caffeine, but I have to admit it was one of those perfect morning pleasures that would pull me out of bed with it's lure of warm joy. These days I occasionally have a nice decaf in the AM, but I pretty much just stick with my tea. All this is just the prelude to the real purpose of this post. I've been collecting pots by Ayumi Horie for the last 4 years, and now with my cupboard well stocked I have a number of perfect cups to choose from for my morning beverage. While I miss the little dose of caffeine, I still have to smile at the warm pleasure of just holding one of her perfectly imperfect pots in my hands. See all of her work on her website where you can also do some quality shopping.
