Some friends, and fellow bloggers, have recently opened me up to the wonderful world of Spode China. I have honestly never heard of it until reading about it on their blogs. Kendra posted about the Christmas pattern and Erin about the Woodland Hunting Dogs Pointer pattern. I knew my sister-in-law would love the Pointer pattern, so I did a quick Google search to find out the availability and price. In my search I found that they also have a Woodland Hunting Dogs Black Labrador pattern with the same beautiful cream and brown design. I already have quite a collection of black labrador items, including artwork, wine stoppers, and Christmas ornaments and I would love to add some of these pieces to my home!
