Hollis Engley Fan


If any of you ever read the comments on Hollis Engley's blog, you know I am a huge fan of his work. In fact, before I ever knew what blogging was, I had found his website and bookmarked it, looking at it often to envy the shino glazes on his pieces. This was a really nice week and to end it properly, I received this surprise in the mail today from Hollis! So unexpected, but one of the nicest surprises I could get. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, HOLLIS!!!!! I absolutely LOVE IT! and check out the card that came with it, suitable for framing. I look forward to taking it to my next class for my students to see. When they were here yesterday we had a quick review of all the cups in my cabinet, discussing what works well, glaze applications, etc.
Wesley had the best comment today when I opened the package. She said, "oh, you bloggers!"
Indeed! It's an interesting community isn't it? Sunday morning, I will be sitting here, reading everyone's blogs and drinking tea from my new H. cup, can't wait!!!!

How cool is that?! His work and writing rock.

I LOVE getting mail and received a sweet package of goodies from very cool Cowgirl Goods blog! Fun isn't it? Never thought I'd be referring to so many "friends" who I really haven't met in person -yet know more things about many of you than I do my neighbors (and I am very social, BTW)!!

Glad you like it, Tracey. And glad it got there intact. "Oh, you bloggers," indeed.

Hollis, it was so great of you to think of me! Next good firing I get I'll find something you might like:)
Cindy, I know what you mean about the neighbors, I don't know any of mine, none of us are ever home and when we are we are busy with our families. Virtual friends seems to work for busy lifestyles doesn't it?
