This is a photograph looking into our kitchen about 3 months after Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans. If you look closely at the right side, you can see a cabinet door hanging open. If you look very carefully, leaning on that door is a Portmeirion milk pitcher just leaning against the open door. It was like that in a picture my husband's brother sent us in the beginning of November 2005. That pitcher was still leaning on that door when we finally first got back to check out our house in December 2005. We were incredulous that it was just leaning up against that door with nothing else to hold it in that cabinet. It wasn't even scratched or chipped. Our Portmeirion was about the only thing we could salvage from our house. It was a sad day.
