pink and green and God's little jokes....

When I was a high schooler pink and green together were considered very preppy.  I have Brooks Brothers argyll socks in pink and green!  One of my favorite, as you know, pottery items to make is any light green pot with a pink pig.... oh MY I like this teapot :)

In other news, I dreamt all night that our young cousin was a pottery student making huge lifesize pots and sculptures, WOW.  (she is actually studying business related something)
My imagination had her making the most intriguing items.  Not to my taste, but huge and well done and incredible (funny to think my imagination spent the night forming work NOT to my taste or in any style I would work in...but then again, it isn't MY WORK, it is hers, right?  Where do dreams come from????? God's sense of humor I bet!).  I am standing there looking at her freshman work, made in her dorm room thinking "wow, 30 years and I have been doing this and my best is little teapots...."

Your best IS little teapots. As a lifelong tea drinker, I can honestly say I never lusted after teapots until I met you. :)
