Mini flowers need mini vases.

A pair of stamped & soda-fired mugs for Mugshot Monday! “Matching” is so overrated… I prefer to have “related” rather than “twins.” Lets people pick & choose a match-up for their own perfect pairs!

And what better way to celebrate Spring finally making it to Chicago
than with some bright flowers in a few different stamped & soda-fired vases?!

Square, traditional or vertical cylinder? Which is your favorite???

It’s the first day of April, and these colorful gerbera daisies sure make me feel like Spring is here! Now if it would just warm up a bit more so it “feels” like Spring is here too?! Thanks to Patti for sharing her flowers with all of us! So cheery!

Perfect for the soon-to-be-here Spring flowers!!! And making their “big debut” next weekend at the Prairie View Arts Invitational in Naperville!
