Great weather

We have gone from 100degree heat here in SC to mid 80's so I am in heaven. It feels like my summers as a kid in Upstate New York and that puts me in a great mood. I've been working on lots of plates and small dipping/sauce dishes and of course...mugs.

Here is a mug by Katherine Finnerty that my pals Julie and Ron brought back from their Minnesota trip a few weeks ago. I couldn't wait to have coffee in it this morning and as I was drinking out of it I was thinking how some mugs are for special occasions and some are just a good old friend that you see every day. On mornings that I need a pick me up or I'm feeling really good I get down one of my special, fancy, expensive mugs. On a morning that I have lots on my mind, I reach for my old friends. These are mugs that feel good, aren't super fancy and coffee tastes great out of. It also occurred to me that everyday I think about pots in various ways and I wonder if other people with various professions do the same about their occupation.

Katherine mug just got washed and went up on my special mug shelf to look at and pull down when I'm in the mood for a little something special.

Glad you like the mug. I picked it out. :-)
It really should have a better picture here though, that one's a bit out of focus. Guess I'll have to come visit it sometime.

No...you just need to take pity on me and buy me a new camera!
It is an awesome mug. I can't imagine all the work she does on one piece! Thanks
