frogs pigs and dogs....

(teaset by Gary Rith)

SURE, I post pics of pots sometimes, and even talk about them!  I realized one day years ago frogs, pigs and dogs are my most popular items with elephants and bunnies added in....check out this teaset!  I wanted to make a big simple round teapot and matching cups....with a different dog on each!  Like, a terrier, beagle, pug.  The pug was fugly and so I suddenly scrapped that idea for the moment and decided blue with frogs was smarter for that day...

IN OTHER news you know I was hanging out with Yogi, who I babysit sometimes.  I cracked up when I went inside to get my camera and he was nose to nose with our cat Spike through the window. Spike is super friendly and loving and it may be fun to let Yogi in to meet a friendly cat...maybe someday...later that same day the wife is like "Get a photo!  He is so cute, sleeping with your stuffed cat and Easter Snoopy!"

I second Penny's opinion in second to last pic!

I love how Spike is using the stuffed kitty as a pillow. :-) My cat does that, too. Sometimes he uses my leg as a pillow, if I'm reclining on the bed.

That looks like one friendly cat.

I think Spike is the coolest cat ever! I never tire of frogs....unless they are the sticky kind that jumps on my skin. YIKES!

Useless fact: I just learned that the particular body paint style that Spike (and my Lottie) share is called "mackerel tabby". A previous pet, Heidi, had beautiful black swirls on her sides--that one's called "butterfly tabby ". Now you know it too!

The fluff that fills our heads so we can't remember our pin numbers...
