I quite enjoy having pretty things in unexpected places. This piece of ceramic work is directly outside my back door, so I get to see it every time I put on my gumboots. It's sheltered enough from the elements that I don't have to worry about weather damage, and was cheap enough ($6 from TradeMe) that I won't fret if it breaks/is stolen. I like how it has a very 1920s look, despite the date '1989' being carved into the back before it was fired. Have you noticed how her earrings match her scarf?
