YES, I Bought More Stuff


I had to buy enough knobs for the rest of my kitchen cabinets anyway, sooo... Emperor will get an apple baker and Elf will get a little mug (elf-sized!) with stars on it. And I bought a tile in "Amazon Flower" pattern to keep my pop or coffee on by the computer. And I bought three new "flowering peacock" mugs; see them in the cabinet picture? I finally said when I put everything away that I think I'm really done ordering all the pottery I "need." I think I'm done!

Emperor gasped when he heard that. There are several other styles that we don't have, did you know that?? Yes. He has the catalogue to prove it. D seems to think it is all very silly anyway; he won't touch the pottery. And besides, none of it matches. (I think it matches in an eclectic sort of fun way, but ohh well.)

I served dinner with the old plates as I had gotten them out of the dishwasher, and why put things away only to take them out again?
Elf was very sad. He wanted to know if he had been a bad boy since he didn't get served on the POLISH POTTERY. Arg.

Here you see Elf eating some pizza with the pottery during a snack time. Emperor came bounding in and wanted a snack, too. Well... I'm loading the dishwasher in just a second, so you can have your chips in this paper bowl -

"WHAT??!" His eyes about popped out of his head. "You mean I have to use ORDINARY DISHWARE?"
*
Um... do YOU know other little boys who like to discuss Polish pottery patterns? Outside Poland, I mean. Or maybe I am really, really behind the times and other people's kids do this sort of thing and I just don't know about it. You know... baggy pants and dish patterns being the "in" thing with the hep-cat set. Or maybe the groovy kids like Fiesta ware better. :)

  1. I love the pottery! I am the same way about yarn. My son will sit for entire minutes in a row and ask me questions about fiber and spinning and knitting...it's cute how they want to participate in our interests.

    Off topic - how is your weather?

  2. It's all gorgeous. I have been working on a now belated birthday present for you that will match your kitchen. Mayb'e I'll get it in the mail next week. I'm with Elf--I wouldn't eat off of anything else!

  3. Ahaha, I just love my dishware, so stylish and attractive ;) I think paper bowls are boring though ... I would probably complain too, lol. I think your cabinet looks the same ... Didn't see any new dishes. Just sayin ....

  4. See the middle two cups with flowers on them? Those are new. G cannot drink from them as the handles are too small for his hands. Aww.

  5. I just LOVE your pottery... I have only found one place here in New Zealand that stocks it. So sad.
