I admit, I can be a very difficult person to buy things for (at least, that’s what my family always tells me!). But when I received this very early birthday gift of beautiful and unique ceramic café au lait bowls from my sister, Karen, I felt completely spoilt. Not only do I absolutely genuinely adore them (just look at those mesmerising blues and delicate patterns!), but she was so very excited that she had found me the perfect gift, the delight on her face when I opened the box was another present in itself. It was double the fun for both of us! I’m so touched she took the time to hunt out these finds for me, and now I’m committed to swapping between them all for my peaceful early morning coffee. There’s nothing like family to make you feel a little bit special. Thanks, sis!
