We promised ourselves that this summer we would fit in a road trip.
So last week, we packed our bags, grabbed the dog and headed south down highway 101 on an adventure.
On our way, we happened to pull over in Carpenteria, only to discover Eye of the Day, which just so happened to be on my bucket list!
I discovered this store online several years ago and had forgotten about it.
Eye of the Day carries beautiful, authentic pottery from Anduze, France which I've been in love with forever.
There are green Anduze pots (my favorite)...
There are yellow Anduze pots...
And white, mottled Anduze pots, along with blue ones and various other colors.
They have the best selection of terracotta from Italy...
and France too.
I've been searching for a fountain like this forever.
Of course, they had many to choose from.
Not today though!
We ended up with a pair of green pots which I plan to plant with olive trees and place by the pool in Asti. They are huge and totally filled the back of our truck as we were not about to pay for shipping!
I highly recommend this store! The owner, Brent was so patient with us as we obsessed over our pots and was determined to make them fit in the car!
As we were leaving, I noticed the sign outside the door:
"August is like the Sunday of summer."
It felt that way as we headed further south, looking forward to more of our road trip and more discoveries before summer's end.
Stay tuned to find out where our journey took us and follow along on my Instagram too...
