Back to Work...

It was terribly, bitterly cold this a.m. - down to 11! - but we trundled into work anyway. A very busy day, and then a package arrived early afternoon. My receptionist brought it back to me. I was really surprised, as I'd forgotten that anything other than fabric was coming and this was a large and heavy box. Here's what was in inside:
remember my wonderful Christmas gift to myself? The One Wintery Night sage leaf mug that matches this vase? After I got that mug, I started thinking about how it works so nicely in the knitting room/office with the sage curtains and the purples and blues and burgundies...so I convo'd Karen at her etsy shop and place a custom order - for the vase to hold knitting needles.
Once she had it completed, she convo'd me, and when I went to purchase it, I saw this bowl in her shop - the oak leaf reminded me of the towering oak at my mother's home, and I just had to have it. I figured it was perfect to corral stitch markers and point protectors and such.

Oh my, when they got here? I almost swooned. They're even more beautiful in person, and of course, my photos just don't do them justice.

I'm a pottery fanatic, but I think these are my favorite pieces of all my years collecting handcrafted pottery.

Which is a really good thing. Because I really don't have anymore space for such things!

Oh...btw...do you see that ticker up there? The first one: The one that says less than ONE month until The Crafty Cat? What's The Crafty Cat? It's the Charlotte NC cat show at the Mercandise Mart on April 4-5, 2009. I'll be there. We're taking Nana Sadie Rose on the road, again!

Ooh... Those bowls are absolutely stunning. You most definitely did have to have them.

BTW, I forgot to mention yesterday that I really think that you, in particular, would enjoy the book I just read -- I thought of you as I was reading it, and it seemed right up your alley! :)

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
