magic hat....


(before and after with a glaze firing, I am SO excited)
Its not like the front of our house is all that interesting, but I am such a horrible gardener, I just want to show off a couple of successes:  I love the magenta hanging flowers with the purple house, and my potted sunflowers are starting to bloom!  Somebody the other day wondered if there was a beagle sculpture amongst the pots out front:  YES, cutely mixed with the morning glories (which are taking over:  GO FOR IT purple morning glories!)

Magic hat is an excellent brewery in Vermont (I had some Monday! #9!) but I was thinking "what if I made a mug that looks like a magician's hat, and inside is a bunny????"

as soon as i saw your title i knew you were talking Magic Hat beer... #9 is my fave.

and the hats and rabbit mugs are great!

Those mugs are great! I thought you were referring to the Missus hat which does seem magically cute. Go morning glories, go!

I would love to see the` expression on the face of the drinker who revealed the rabbit by consumption. I had a mug once that had a life like dragonfly motif on the inside. People would nearly have a heart attack when they saw it thinking they could have drunk a dragonfly.
