putting the POTTERY back in the "pottery blog"

(pottery and sketches by Gary Rith)
You remember Baby Alex, right? My little buddy, my honorary nephew, my honorary cousin Tiffany's son? I come home from seeing him and I am like "I gotta draw babies on mugs!"* and I work on it and get one I like. Our elderly kitten Emily, of course, spends the winter sleeping on the wife's sweaters, which is SO cute, I wanted to put that onto mugs I did :)
*I am thinking of doing my first EVER New Year's pottery: New Year, New Baby!

You know I am doing this ten day thing, right? Today is 4 turn offs. Gosh, isn't that like, a bachelor question? I don't know what turns me off or on...or do I?

1) let's be honest, ODORS! Cat box, fish, smelly guy sleeping on a park bench? I do not prefer to smell that.
2) pit bulls scare me to death, even if it is not their fault
3) snobbiness--we are all people with something to share, so be nice
4) turtlenecks--there is something dishonest and sneaky about them.....
bonus: I give the wife a kiss this morning and I don't know WHAT nasty lipstick or lip balm she has on, but YUCK! OK, that is like my biggest turn off: a kiss full of waxy, smelly lip stuff, ewww!

OK, my first vote for music video of the year, the Black Keys!
(my wife will be apalled at this I think......)

Day One: Ten things you want to say to ten different people right now.
Day Two: Nine things about yourself.
Day Three: Eight ways to win your heart.
Day Four: Seven things that cross your mind a lot.
Day Five: Six things you wish you’d never done.
Day Six: Five people who mean a lot (in no order whatsoever)
Day Seven: Four turn offs.
Day Eight: Three turn ons.
Day Nine: Two smileys that describe your life right now.
Day Ten: One confession.

Baby Alex has inspired you! It's wonderful! It's hard to draw babies and make them be cute, you have done one hell of a job! Cute cute cute.
