|Blue Rose Pottery was having a sale. I can't seem to stop myself from buying pottery on sale. Hoarders will do a show on me someday and go, "This lady NEEEEDS a bigger house! Because her pottery is awesome!" and the primetime TV viewers will be enthralled as I describe each piece of pottery, where I bought it, a little about the history of the particular pattern, and why it's important to keep it in a *certain order* with the other pieces. Yep.|
This time I let Woodjie and Rose take a look at some of the discontinued/discounted patterns and pick some things they like on the computer screen. Doggone it there were no cups left for Rose, so I got her a plate. I figure a white or blue mug, or a glass, would work well with this style. The children were thrilled. Rose has selected the Old Fashion style and Woodjie picked Vesta. What's really odd is that D was able to figure out which patterns the children would pick later without any help. It was uncanny.
Here I had thought the children would pick one of the geometric/modern styles and they get all stereotypical "boy" and "girl" pattern on me. Have to admit they are sharp, though. I am figuring these are um, Easter presents. Yeah, that's it. Patrick and G are wondering where are THEIR Easter presents. The pattern they like is a little extra-artistic. You know, the hand-signed by the artist type Jungle Flower stuff. Umm... one bowl in this pattern is $46. Before shipping. Sorry. Can't do it. Pick another present.
|This is the Desert Coral pattern. Sort of a Southwestern look. Painted in Poland. I'm sure lots of Swedish stuff is made in Nevada to sort of balance this out. I dunno. It's cute though.|
