8 loaves of bread, a 3 1/2 legged dog and an awesome cup and saucer...

I have had, as usual, pretty entertaining dreams the last 3 days.  I remember one dream from each night: last night I was teaching blind students, as I did in the early 90s, and had some free time and was trying a new recipe mix for gluten-free bread and there was this magic packet of something clear and gelatinous that made the 8 loaves magically light and fluffy (my bread is already quite light and fluffy, but this was EXTREME). I dream of the time when I taught at Chicago Lighthouse for the Blind often.  Probably because it was so dang DIFFICULT.

2 nights ago I dreamt I happened upon a 7-9 month old puppy, mostly grown, all brown and similar in size to Penny, our beagle, but lankier.  The poor thing had been born with a half-size front leg.  It was the usual leg, just half the size it should have been, but like any dog, she was cheerful and happy and adapted to it.  I loved the puppy so much and brought her home to Penny and was relieved that she liked the puppy too.

And I woke up yesterday, the last image in mind a particular cup and saucer I have not made before…doodled it out and made it later that same day… you will, of course, hear more about it later….

For now?  A pair of vases….I love variations of this vase/bottle shape, don't you?  Have a great week!

Great form! With froggies yet!
I see many different uses there. Wine carafes? Small vinegar/oil cruets?

I wonder what lucky flowers will look down upon those froggies someday.

Those vases look like spring time.
