oh no, BECKY JO!!!!

So I get this CRUSHED box in the mail, and I am like "OH NO! Becky Jo, the PO is STINKO!" but I open the box and HOLY CATS (sez Spike the cat) WHAT A BOWL!!!! (and not broken :)
Becky Jo is a potter in Iowa, and she is also a trucker. Not too many of those out there, huh? I was gonna pots on her today anyway, because yesterday she is like
"I am making tea bag holders" and I am like "I outta make some, I never have, and I drink tea all day long!" and she very cleverly adds "you should make little pigs lying on their backs tea bag holders!" and I am like "brilliant Becky JO!" and naturally I start to think about it, and decide to make a couple of other styles too, although I am thinking now I could also make dogs....they would be good as a small candy or nuts dish or even spoon holder.
ANYWAY, Becky Jo's pots kick AZZ so go over and buy some...which will make you cool like me!

Thanks for the blog post, Gary! Those are some very nice teabag/spoonrest/candy dishes! I especially like the one with the belly button. :)

That's also a good reminder on how brutal the postal service can be. Glad you got it in one piece.

They are totally delightful! Love it.
I like the sharpie fun times on Becky's box. That's probably why the post office dicked with it. They are known for hating fun.
