The Reveal, Pots, Tiny Tortoise

WITHOUT FURTHER ADO………

It’s a girl!!!  This makes a grand total (see how I did that? tee hee) of five grand girls!  OMG, I so love me some pink!

This is the first baby Big Mommy and Big Daddy have chosen to know the gender beforehand.  When you live in Bangkok, Thailand and all your baby stuff is in storage back in the U.S., it just makes sense to plan ahead a little.

Here are two small pieces that I threw a few weeks ago –

This little pot didn’t make the cut to be a mug, but I loved it too much to discard it.  It lives on as a votive.

This one DID make the cut.  It’s a little on the small side, but huge coffee mugs are overrated, don’t you think? 😉😋

I used B-clay with grog for both, then glazed them with Seacrest Celadon with a Buttermilk rim dip.

My Stornoway Throw – which is positively ginormous and is still growing.  I was concerned at first that it was going to be a little bit smaller than I would have liked.  Total waste of time, that.

Bad photo of corner detail – so sorry

FANCY MEETING YOU HERE….

I found this little guy on the trail I walked this morning.  I put him in an old terrarium with a little mulch to show Babydiva today and then we’ll take her on a field trip to where I found him and let him go.
