open sesame

This is sort of what I saw when I opened the kiln this morning.

This too, an ode to flowering and blossoming~ I don't think I've painted so much on one piece ever!
I felt a little lost without my kiln.
I did a bit of decorating. Found a home for some enamelware.
ate a lot of vegetables
Took lots of beach walks and made a few decisions.
spent money that should have gone in the rolling table account
but phooey on that,
I couldn't resist such a proud cow and milkmaid.
But now the studio is humming along again and I feel better. Thanks for being so paitent!

Oh my goodness, how exciting to see your post come up in my FB feed Julie. I had to rush over here and see what you've been up to.....

The cow and milkmaid are lovely....

Your new creations are just delightful, that plate, oh my and the spoons, I love it all, sigh!!
It must be so much fun painting deciding what to make or paint on your pieces.
I will be back to visit your shop.........Xx

It's pouring with rain here this morning, a beautiful, quiet, slow start to the day......I love it..:)
Hope you are having a lovely weekend too.

Didn't realize you were without a kiln! I know how not having some crucial element throws one off. Glad to hear you are up and running again... I had the sense of a bouquet of flowers seeing all those spoons. A lovely thing to open a kiln and see!

I wish I could write you all back; but I don't have the 'reply' gizmo or I would
Pussman and Co, I have sold that platter, but thanks so much for the thought.

Love your bunny among so many other things..
Your beach walks! I need that.
Wanna trade island walks for some beach?
It's doable no?
