A little over a week ago we took the family out of town for a quick getaway. When we just want a short trip away from home we usually go to Portland because it’s within driving distance. One of my favorite stores is Canoe, which carries a great variety of design from all over the world. Loads of Scandinavian and Japanese design fills their shelves and I picked up an extra large tea cup to go with my growing collection of Hasami mugs and tea pot. I really like this bigger size because normally I have two cups of tea every night but with this, one big one does the job! If you love Hasami pottery they’re super easy to find now and with great variety like bowls, lids and plates.
