i adore the down to earth and feminine italian pottery made by vietri. the incanto lace ceramics are my absolute favorite.
though, if you're like me, you have a husband who'd prefer a few less frills, so we went with the simple lines and rustic grace of vietri's bianco for plates and things and i managed to slip a few of the statement lace pieces into the mix for serving and display.
if you too, love vietri and are lucky enough to live in or near north carolina, the vietri outlet store in hillsboro is absolutely worth the trip. mark your calendars especially for their warehouse sales!
