Istanbul Diary: Porcelain
The most difficult part about shopping in Istanbul is that you feel like buying everything. This is especially true of Turkish porcelain ware. I was completely mesmerized by the colours and patterns of the housewares. From serving plates to rice bowls, mini tea cups to full dinner sets, I wanted to bring everything home and jazz up my dinner parties. Luckily, the handmade pieces were quite expensive and that put a natural control on my urge to splurge.
