I might like you better if we.....

So as I say I am making many small teapots to try out ideas and this is not a new idea for me, but I was talking with Pauline about elephants and I am like 'no, wait for the full monty', meaning, of course, the elephant that IS a teapot....
And Becky Jo was asking me about my fancy lighting set up, and actually tis NOT fancy at all.....



(elephant teapots by Gary Rith)
Goodness, remember this tune from the early 80s? I remember in those pre-IPOD days trying to find it on the radio and calling in requests....

That light set up is simple enough that I think even I can try it! I finally have a blog at: http://annabrannersclothnclay.blogspot.com/

So definitely must work on picture quality! Dan Finnegan says so. :)
