It is time and time marches

Today is the day Mark pulled the names from the hat (pottery bowl) for the generosity chain from me to you and you to whoever 2011.
The first name is Julia from Henhouse pottery-go Julia
The second name is Trish  a potter living in Alberta, Canada.
The third  is Michele Hastings a recent transplant to Seagrove who lives around the corner- this will be great on shipping!
The fourth is  Robert Young of Tropiclay Studio in Hagatna Springs, Guam, United States
and last but never least is
Leslie Williams  of In Short- I swear Mark pulled these---- of C'ville Va. who just happens to be related to me.
My favorite youngest sister!
So in the next year between today, my birthday, and next year 2011 something will come for you!
Hummm, something nice not creepy like out of the old B movies.

Now, the new kiln is cooling.
I am firing my tiny test kiln with some last minutes stuff in it.
And it is my Birthday I wonder if Mark has some plans for later...

Last night:
there is something about that flame...

the only plants that will flower in my house...

Thank you!
It seems strange to think of the number - because it does not match the number in my head!
Merry Christmas to all!

Wow! Mark made my whole day! I can't wait...and this might help light my creative fire.(I have an eentsy bit of Christmas production burn-out).

And happy birthday! I had a big glass of birthday wine for you!
