so many toes and I can't eat them all

I'm just going to just ramble on because my son could be up from his nap any minute now.  HEY!  This Sunday I am picking up my pottery from the kiln.  Yes, it will be fired and glazed and LOVELY.  Did I not tell you I took a pottery class?  Well, I did.  And I'm pretty bad at it, if I do say so myself.  I'll get better though.  I know I will; because I'm motivated.  I'm motivated by pretty pottery.  I made all my bowls blue and green.

I don't believe in other coloured pottery.  SOME people were making RED bowls, and BLACK bowls, and BROWN bowls.  I just couldn't understand why anyone would want pottery that wasn't blue or green (though I like grey as well, to be perfectly honest).  Now that I think of it: why the heck do I only like pottery in three different colours?  That's actually much stranger than liking it in many colours.

I'll take pictures when I have them in my greedy little mitts.  And it's awesome too, because we only have three cereal bowls.  So we need more, if we're ever to have guests over for cereal.

Which we will.  

This dress and this cardi were from the End of Clearance Sale at Winners (yes, it deserves the capitalization). They were 5 dollars each.  I like cheap.  Even better than cheap I like free.  I thought you should know this about me.

Alright.  I am truly too tired to blog.  Also, I just want to remind everyone I have a Formspring account.  You can feel free to ask my intimate and racy questions there.  I won't mind.  

My nose is cold.

  4. You look great! Awesome outfit - love those tights and the print of your dress I and can't wait to see your pottery either :)

    You'll certainly need at least one more cereal bowl or your little girl will be feeling pretty left out by the time she hits cereal age :D

    When will someone invent nose mittens? You could knit a blue and green one but I am being silly.. those are pottery colours ;)

  7. Can't wait to see your pottery, I'll bet they are gorgeous thank to your very artistic streak. And your tights are perfect! A husband with great taste! :)

  8. Hello! Thank you so much for the visit + follow. I just noticed that you are in BC too, where in BC are you located, how fab!

    As for my photographs they were taken without a flash, but across from a huge window, with tripod, and I used my 50 mm portrait lens, a total god send. Great to meet you. xx veronika

  9. Can't wait to see your pottery creations. Loving the dress. Pregnancy suits you well.

  10. Those tights are just divine and I'll say it again, pregnancy makes you even more beautiful!
    I'm a bit of a freak when it comes to pottery, I can only eat from plain white plates and bowls. xxx

  11. I'm such an eejit - I always thought you lived in New Zealand for some reason. It only dawned on me today that it's unlikely they have much snow there at the moment!

    That dress is gorgeous. Wish we had Winners over here.

  12. Can't wait to see how the bowls turned out! What a fun activity! :)

    Love the $5 dress - there's nothing better than a good deal!

  13. The tights are amazing!
    thank you for your lovely comment :)

  14. Yay for sales! It makes me want to shop right now! And you found some great stuff too, which is even better. And a pottery class sounds like fun!

  15. wow, you've blogged a lot since i've last been by! glad to see you have a bit more energy :) and i can't wait to see your bowls... i definitely have a think for blue/green/grey pottery... strange.... anyhow, i never photographed my favorite coffee cup which happens to be blue/green and ceramic... yes... i will though, one day :)


  16. That dress is beautiful on you. And you hide a cold nose so well - mine goes bright red. Looking forward to seeing your pots of limited but pretty colours.


With two children and a tendency to procrastinate, I don't often return comments. But I do appreciate them! So thank you!
