ripply green...

I was dreaming of back when I was a teacher.  The last gig I had 20 years ago was teaching high school students who had learning disabilities.
In the dream I had one student I KNEW if given a chance would shine in high school and get into a good college, and I was trying to convince a college recruiter it was true.  Later I come across the recruiter who had finally met the student.... who was having a fight in the hallway and yelling and screaming.  OH BOY.... I felt his chances just went down the drain. Then my class was filled with loud noise and chaos... I was glad to wake up, peek into the cooling kiln and see juicy items and be a potter once again :)

I was walking Nook downtown last week and in a shop window saw these green ripply glasses.  Later I walked Penny past the window.  The I walked the wife past the window and said "LOOK! I love them".  I never spend money, but we agreed on getting 2.  The next day I went back and got 2 more... then I made these light blue mugs in a similar ripply way....

Have an awesome Sunday!

Lovely green glass! We hardly every spend money either but over the last year we have bought a few hand blown glasses and just love them.

Perfect glasses for cool drinks on warm summer days.

I definitely would have bought those green glasses too!
