wouldn't you like to wake up next to this????

Our high temps today will be about 15, outside now its below zero. Our kitchen was feeling like below zero, before the heat got busy and did its thing, and naturally the wife grabs the ever present camera and is like
"I GOTTA GET THIS PIC" and she did.
I dreamt last night that I had a special ring that helped me levitate. I found myself in a mall, and I didn't need the escalator, just zzzzip! Up I went to the 5the level where I got all teary eyed because me and the missus were shopping for a perfect wedding ring (we never went to the mall to shop for rings, as we have nice family rings, but then again, I don't have a special levitation ring either).


I was working on whacking some big bowls into ovals and adding handles. These pics don't do them justice, they are rather groovy.


And yesterday Goofy Kim comes over and is giving that beagle some lovin' and I am like
"I know her tricks, I am not putting down your muffins and tea Kim until that wily creature is back on the floor...."


Dig the tremendous awesomeness of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club....

I am stuck on the fifth floor of the mall line. Who goes to malls with five floors? LOL!

Anna said...

Love those ovals!

Hilary said...

I love that second bowl. It's reminiscent of Aladdin's lamp.

No hamsters in that mall? ;)

Becky Jo said...

Ooooo... I like the second one, with the handle holes cut out...

..and I think I might have a special levitation ring, I just don't know how to operate it.

Dez said...

Oh, Gary, you look soooo cute!! Thanks the missus for me for snapping that picture! I just love that 2nd bowl!!! I see it on my kitchen table in the near future.... Of all places that ring would take you to, a mall? Ha... dreams! Maybe there is something there and the Missus needs a ring from the mall?
Stay warm!

Man, you are a symphony in blues in that outfit and the theme carries on through those gorgeous bowls. I'm voting for the second one, too! VERY handsome but i'm sitting on my hands and have hidden the checkbook from myself.

Pauline said...

Love those bowls and the colours are so cool!

kcinnova said...

Awesome glazing, and the pics of you made me smile.

Waving hello from my semi-warm house (the wind chill is around 15F)

Cheryl said...
