I love to work and make piggy bottoms and....

(mugs by Gary Rith, Spike helps me with a blog post, and Penny crawled under my pillow when she came in from the rain...)
A year or 2 ago Shelly saw me putting piggy faces on mugs and she was like "should there be a piggy bottom on the other side???" and sometimes there is you know, because that is a good idea.
Basically, since I have done fairs every Thanksgiving weekend for 13 years, today is a work day for me (I am having open studio Friday and Saturday 12-4, c'mon over here!) and it will be a quiet and busy holiday.
I was at the store yesterday getting pink roses for the missus and almost all the flowers were fall rust colors, yellows and reds, and I realized she and I are not very traditional. As vegans, it will be some sort of pizza she is cooking up and I am making triple chocolate cookies. We have nothing against tradition, but I guess we don't pay much attention to traditions either.
So today I cannot wait to get into the studio and work on some wee little teapots I started yesterday and which I am excited about and also make some cow mugs for Anna etc etc....
I am thankful to be able to be with the missus, have my work, have the greatest purple house in the world, I am thankful for tasty veggie foods and I am thankful for my super fun and affectionate dogs and cats.
Stevo had his tripod last night and got this shot of the Gallow Pre-Thanksgiving Chapterhouse Happy Hour. Jaysus there were a lot of us and it was so loud we could barely hear across the table....I am SO thankful for good friends like Steve and his family and the OTHER friends...
