Another great surprise in the post this week! I came home Friday to a package on my porch and noticed it was from Amazon. I couldn't remember ordering anything but that's not unusual, so I opened it up to see what I had ordered. No, I didn't order this, it was from Gay Judson at Sister Creek Pottery! Gay, you are supposed to be getting something from me, not the other way around!! So, I am catching my breath on this beautiful Sunday, I have nothing to do but sit here with my cup of blueberry tea in my beautiful Meredith mug and read about slips. Thank you sooo much for the book, Gay!!!!!!!
You, my blogger friends are the very best. I have a wall pillow that I look at every day that Jen Mecca sent me, I drink out of Hollis' tea bowls almost daily, as well as Mark and Meredith's mugs, cute little houses are in my studio from Barbara Chadwick Bland, I am learning to use my brush that Brandon sent, and last winter our hands stayed cozy warm in the gloves from Canada that Trish sent. Then there are the gifts from my potter friends, a tool caddy that my pal Charlotte gave me that I use all day long, beautiful necklaces that my pals Susan and Kristen made, cups and books and stamps from my friend Laura, a beautiful journal from my student Amber, one from a long ago student, Nancy, a bracelet that former student Doreen made me that I wear every day. And then there are the great pots that Joseph Sand let me pick out from his first firing, I'm using those all day long! All these things bring me such great joy and were all given with love and friendship. I use these things everyday and think of the person that made them or gave them and I am amazed at my good fortune to know you. I need to get busy giving a little back!!
Thank you, thank you, thank you and if I missed anyone, I'll remember after I post this and will get back to you, but thank you too! (let me know, will you? I'm almost 50, memory fails sometimes)
