This is about the beginning of the second coat of blue. And you should know the handle is now white. And there are white polka dots. I can't wait to see it after it's been all fired up and shiny. It's going to be my new favorite mug. My current favorite mug was mailed to me after my old favorite mug (which looked like a polka-dotted Frankenstein) was knocked off my overhead table at school and shattered all over the floor. Phil and I were still in the pretty early stages of communication at that point, and I had mentioned to him in an email that I had broken my favorite mug. About four days after that, my new favorite mug arrived in the mail, along with a hand-poured scented candle that was called Pacific Rain. To say I was excited that day doesn't even begin to describe it. It was my first gift from my internet boyfriend :) And isn't he so cute?
This particular pottery shop was a little Mom & Pop shop. The lady (who's a fabulous painter and sells her wares in an attached gallery, by the way) asked if she could take our picture. I am in deep concentration here painting my rose (which looks more like a circle with some squiggly lines). Think: Mary Engelbreitish, but way not as good.
That ended our Valentine's Day. Well, no, let me take that back. A trip to Walmart to pick up a frozen lasagna actually ended our date, which is kind of funny because somehow we always end up at Walmart.
It was a lot of fun. Go paint some pottery with the one you love. And tune in tomorrow (or the next day, or the week after that) because I'll post pictures of our finished works of art as soon as they're fired up and we can go back and get them.
