Birthday Mug

Sometimes I splurge on something just for myself even if I know I shouldn't and that's just what I did this past summer. I purchased this absolutely beautiful mug from Lori of Fine Mess Pottery for my birthday. I just love the shape, texture, and the color. I happen to love lavender and purple and I see it so infrequently in pottery, so when I saw this mug Lori made I just had to have it. Thanks Lori, I truly treasure this mug.

The local RV park characters of the cat lady and bird man seem be shy so I haven't been able to take their photos to show you. I have my camera ready and I finally learned how to upload and do some minor editing with my laptop so I just need some subjects, hopefully they will reveal themselves soon.

I'm taking care of a few details of tires, tune ups, and paper work. As usual things take much longer and cost much more than I originally anticipated. Meanwhile I glazed some Cone 4, 5, and 10 work I made months ago and it's being fired and I should have photos coming up soon, so stay tuned.


  1. Beautiful shaped mug.

    Following your moving adventure via your blog. Best wishes!

  2. Can see why you had to have that.

  3. what a wonderful and inviting mug!

    I hope your neighbors at the park are not part of the wittness protection service.....

    Things always cost more.
    Waiting for pictures!

  4. Hi Diane, thanks hope to have more about travels soon.

    Hi Patti, thanks, yes purple is my weakness.

    Hi Meredith, thanks, the witness protection service? ha! maybe so, mystery and intrique at the RV park. we're having our trailer worked on this weekend hopefully it won't cost us a bundle, then we can head out.

    Hi Gary, thanks, third pottery blog I can't keep up with your posts, I am finding no mouse has slowed me up.

  5. To answer your question, it is a fungus not a bacteria and needs an antifungal to treat it and it needs to be taken oraly if that is what you have. I would check it out with a doctor. Good luck. It is nothing to play with.

  6. I am looking and reading your blog I promise. I only just managed to post onto my blog tonight a very lame entry so forgive me if I am not writing on yours.

  7. Hi Patti, thanks.

    Hi Kitty, no problem I figured you were superbusy with your commissions and other work since you were gone for a couple of weeks unexpectedly. Now that I have less to do it seems I am getting less done myself, silly really, I guess I am just resting from all the work I had to do the last three months and all the heat from the summer I barely survivled. Take it easy.

  8. Linda, what an amazing journey life is.... hang in there-- and I look forward to your visit here whenever that is!

  9. Hi Amy, thanks you are sure right about that, see you soon.

  10. What a beautiful gift to give yourself. Drinks are sweeter sipped from a piece of pottery made by a friend. Looking forward to seeing your fired pieces.

  11. Hi Jewels, thanks, hes that is true. Hope all is well with you, keep checking back for more pottery.
