WHERE’VE I BEEN
Last Thursday, I invited myself to Stuttgart for a visit, mostly to help out Bigmommy a little and just to spend a little QT with the Papoose and the Sprout. I got to see the Papoose’s school and was fortunate enough to get the grand tour. Very exciting stuff! My sweet son in law shares my love of rooting around thrift and antique stores, so Friday morning he, the Sprout and I took a field trip and did some thrifting. I’ve collected blue and white pottery for just about forever and scored two new pieces and yet another hippie purse. Say what you will, Bigmommy, about me being an old hippie, but because everything old is new again, I’m on the cutting edge of today’s fashion. ; p. So there.
These are in great shape, the spigot button sticks but will work perfectly after a little WD40.
These were both made by the Marshall Pottery, Marshall, Texas
Love everything about this!
You can tell he doesn’t care anything for them!
The only thing that could possibly make him happier would be to have all four in his arms.
THE DOCUMENTED LIFE
This week’s prompt was to somehow incorporate a feather. This is my take on it, along with an e.e. cummings poem.
Modeling paste, peacock feather stencil, Derwent Blocks
Acrylic background, watercolor feathers
