It’s always fun to see people get excited when they’re buying my work…
especially fun today when George & Carmie were buying a new “friend” to go with their other two masks!!! So glad they shared a picture of his new home so soon… the trio looks quite happy together!

Huge thanks to everyone who stopped by my place today for
MUD & METAL : My Second Holiday Home Show!

It was a beautiful day with sun streaming in lighting up the place…
and smashing it on some flowers!!! Don’t forget that we’re doing it again tomorrow
from 10:00am-4:00pm!

But don’t look too close… these flowers are fake!!! Looking pretty good for silk, right?

Sad story from a customer whose mug decided to break… gravity and all… and no longer holds her morning coffee. But it does make a nice home for her cactus! Innovative way to not “let go” of her favorite mug!!! Now we just need to get her one that will still hold her coffee!!!

See the crack running from top to bottom?!!! Look close… there’s a couple!
