A wish fulfilled...

 I have been wanting a "Julie Whitmore" tea cup ever since I first saw one on Nina Bagley's blog years ago! A dear art friend just gave me this belated birthday present this week and I couldn't be happier! I love the painted rabbit, the little flower where you put your thumb, and the tiny bee tea tag. I had my first afternoon cup of tea on our porch today and it tasted so good in this special tea cup! Thank you, Colleen!

And here is Henry taking a nap on my pile of rug hooked pieces in a basket.
A group of us are heading down to Malibu for a 'Painting with Passion" workshop with Katie Kendrick, one of my favorite people and artists! Hoping to learn some new techniques and get painting again.
Hoping you all have a sweet Mother's Day on Sunday. We have a beach walk planned and that's all I want...well, a couple of handmade cards would be OK too!

That tea cup is fabulous and would make me happy too! A beach walk for Mother's Day would be my pick too!
Wishing you a Happy Mother's Day

Wow, what a wonderful friend to give you one of Julie's works of art.
It's so sweet, I'm sure it will give you alot of pleasure.

I love Julie's work and have a significant birthday coming up next month and decided it was time to treat myself, so have ordered a mug and small plate.

Enjoy your workshop, sounds wonderful,

I also found Julie through Nina's blog. I now have 3 pieces, and a little bluebird spoon on the way. I need more pottery like a "hole in the head" but hers is just so wonderful. And that cup of yours is definitely one of the cutest yet!
