Look What I Got!


When I went to the Post Office today there was a package/present waiting for me.  My mug from Lori Watts's Kickstarter Campaign had arrived.  The blue is so beautiful.....design, decoration, and handle all add up to the whole being greater than the sum of the parts.

The little stars are reflections from my flash......but are well deserved.




See how prettily my tea contrasts with the blue.  In the afternoon I drink it plain.


In the morning I always drink it with milk....no sugar please.


I like the way the blue changes depending on what is next to it.  It sound odd, but blue can give many colors an extra zing.  Perhaps that's why it's such a popular color.

Well done Lori!  Thank you.

The photos below in my last post are pieces I bought at the League of NH Craftsmens Fair.  I ate my cereal out of Jeff's bowl this morning.

It was great seeing Michele and others.  No, I have no photos of the actual fair as I forgot my camera. Michele has some good ones on her blog.

I'm going to put this over on Mud Colony  I may do some edits, but I wanted to get in early this week.

Enjoy your week end, and as always, thanks for stopping by..........*s*

  3. Dearest Suzi,
    Lori did a great job and I like it being shown with your creamed tea! That's what we drank in India at work a lot and I liked it. Now I drink it pure.
    Hugs,

    1. Hi Carolyn....One of the joys of doing something like Kickstarted is the surprise at the end. This one is high on the list.

    1. Hi Lori....One of the best things about doing a blog is the awareness I have come to have of potters(including you!) and others world wide.
