a week from Christmas....

Well actually it is TWO WEEKS until my open studio here!  October 11-12, Saturday and Sunday 11-5!  email me to get directions and more info.  And surely I realize Christmas is ...gasp....3 MONTHS from now!  But not in my dreams.... I have been dreaming of snow every night for the last couple of weeks.... I am not especially fond of snow.  I live in a place, and you need to realize I have ALWAYS lived in places like this, where the snow can pile up taller than your head.  Snow is not a pretty Hallmark Card or rom-com (I do LOVE LOVE, ACTUALLY though...) but a serious nuisance starting in October and ending in May. So why dream of it???

WELL, dreaming last night it was fun.  A cheerful week before Christmas, only light snow and ice, and with a  group of friends we took bikes and skateboards downtown to open a few friend presents outside a bar and have a cheerful little party.... made me feel all holiday spirit and all.

ANYWAY, lately making a lot of vases.  I am holding the 2 blue ones to give you an idea of size--they are pretty big, for me.... have an awesome weekend!

I'm impressed with the big blue vases! Big is ok also, sometimes.
