15 degrees on the first day of spring AND there are many many many ways to do flowers….

(YES, it was 15 degrees early Sunday morning…entirely ordinary for us most years, but a little out of character for this warm year…)

You remember that last year on January 1 I dreamt I should put flowers on pots, my macho self began to do so:  painted, stamped, etc.  I had an idea I should try to form flowers on a piece, and above is the first try…not too bad, hmm?  I was excited with this and am trying variations of it….

Have a great Monday!

Happy spring! I like those flowers.

Nice flowers; do you have a special stamp? I particularly like the way the glaze breaks over it!
We need flowers. It's snowing here. Not the devastating nor'easter the local weather mavens have been having such a good time predicting, but still.....snow! In fact it's so still it's sticking to trees and all!

Chilly here too.... about 30 degrees colder than last week!

We’ve gone form 70’s to 50’s since spring arrived here. Go figure.

I love the green and purple, that combination is one of my biggest sellers, I wish the same for you.

Love the new flowery Gary style. These remind me of some gorgeous art deco vases (can't remember the company but they're trendy and super expensive to buy in antique stores now) that my great aunt had. Gorgeous work.
