Happy Holidays!

Here's a slideshow of the berry bowls I made for Christmas. What are berry bowls? They are used to wash and store berries, grapes, cherry tomatoes, or whatever else you can think up. They're handier than getting that big colander out of the cupboard and the perfect size for one or two servings of berries.

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and wishing you a happy and safe holiday season!

November post

It's the last day of November and I haven't had a post this month yet? Guess I've been a little busy in between all of my naps. What's been going on besides napping and making Christmas presents?

Well, I got to meet my favorite ceramic artist, Kristen Kieffer, at her workshop at K-State earlier in the month. Below are some pictures from it. Beautiful work!!!

Also got to stop by the insect zoo. They do have live bugs there, too.

And here is a vase I brought home awhile ago.

And here are some I brought home just last night.

Okay, I think I'll go nap now. Bye!

A post for non-FBers

Most of these pictures are posted on Facebook, so this is for my family not on there.

We went to Dallas a couple of weeks ago and got to go to the JFK Museum, hence the first picture. (You may click on the picture to make it bigger.)

Found this praying mantis last weekend. Have only found green ones in my yard before, so it was nice to see a brown one.

These last pictures are especially for my mother-in-law. We found this on our front porch. It's a wolf spider with babies on its back. Enjoy, Mom!

More pieces

Was going to add more to this post, but decided I probably wouldn't get to it this weekened and just do pottery on this one. Thanks for checking in!

Another September post

Finally made it to Botanica, and here are my favorite pictures from there. I wanted to get there while there were still butterflies in the butterfly house.

....And this is a slideshow to make up for the pottery I haven't posted on here. There are about 32 pictures in all including the 61 pieces from the wood-firing, so don't feel obliged to watch it all. I did sell 8 pieces, but it was a little overwhelming bringing this much stuff home. Ugh!

p.s. Not sure how to get all the slideshow to show, so click here for a link if you so desire.

More pictures from last month

Here are some pictures from Planter's Feed and Seed and the City Market from Kansas City. At Planter's, I bought some smoked paprika and whole nutmeg.

I went on a Wednesday morning and got 7 yellow and red peppers for $3 and 8 limes for $1 and the City Market!

Blue Morpho and White Peacock

Early last week I attended a butterfly photography class at Powell Gardens during their Butterfly Festival. There were different butterflies from North and Central America, but the star of the show was the Blue Morpho. Notice how the blue is on only one side of the wing?

The butterfly in the last two pictures is the White Peacock.

Hopefully I will post more of Powell Gardens later. They have the most beautiful chapel on the grounds as well.
