Two posts in one day? That doesn't happen very often but Allison gave me such an interesting response to my previous post that I felt I had to share it.

Allison, I tell you I love that juice pitcher of yours!! I guess I have to learn more about american pottery, especially from the 30's.

Also Amy mentioned McCoy and Roseville. I'm gonna check them out right away.

corner view ' breakfast'

spot the difference
breakfast is heaven for me...every friday I will go out for breakfast... most of the time to Leiden or Amsterdam
on the weekend is more like a family brunch ( lot's of quality time,lol)
I'm freelance so the rest from the week I will have breakfast alone at home(that sound silly,lol)
and after 14 years in the Netherlands I still don't like the bread here, so I try to have breakfast without bread
want to know more about breakfast in other parts of the world spanilydaily
