You might remember that I was very taken by the tamata votives Lucy and I saw in a church we visited in Kassiopi in Corfu last summer.
I was desperate to buy one or two but they weren’t for sale in the church or in any shop (not that we thought they would be) and when I came home I did spend a little time looking …… but then life sort of got in the way again …………….
However, Lucy, bless her, is made of more determined stuff and without her saying a word I found this tamata of an eye at the bottom of my Christmas stocking. You just wouldn’t believe how thrilled I was. As soon as I got home it was put safely in an Ikea Ribba box frame and is currently sitting on one of the shelves in my lounge, however, it might move to my new look bedroom when all the new drawers and shelves have been built…… with a change of background colour, I think a rich blue would look much, much better.
Lu and I have already booked our next odyssey to Crete in the summer, so I will be on the look out again ……. and after some internet browsing I also fancy an evil eye plate ……. though I have never seen anything as stunning as these on any of our travels, you never know!
