where green is good...

Favorite greens:  celadon green, spring green, the green in my yard and woods out there, cat eye green, Coke bottle green...green and green and greens and greens!

I am very pleased with the effect of this medium shiny green glaze and the semi-matte spring green.
And now you can see what I had in mind when I made a bunch of bottles a couple days ago, I wanted to fill this crate!  I should make some more today...

You will not be surprised to hear that I was dreaming that we met neighbors across the street and they had a party and it turned out they own a wine shop and were interested in showing these bottles....YES, I am dreaming of my own bottles....
 

See back there?  Lovely patch of sunflowers or yellow daisies providing my bottles with loveliness...

So beautiful...and are they unglazed where they are white just above the blue? Clever!

I love all greens as well; we both have great taste. :)

No Barb, they are entirely glazed with green and green, not blue or unglazed :)

I just love the row of them with flowers. Someone should buy them ALL and display them like that.
