Enjoying the Spring flowers these days.
Still gray & chilly outside, but with a lot of beautiful colors popping up all over the neighborhood… and on my back porch!

So not all mugs need coffee… some look even better with ivy growing all around them! Stamped, soda-fired and hanging out with some creepy-cuties on the shelf! Thanks for sharing Allison!

Always fun to see a stamped & soda-fired totem pole in the snow!
Sure, not a full snowstorm… but a pretty dusting nonetheless.
