Pottery and Life

March is nearly gone.
 Joe and I have had an eventful month. 
We are happy when the yellow house has guests and we have had guests.
We have one right now that has kept us vigilant all weekend.
I cannot really talk about this special guest but it has been fun. 
Nevertheless we still awoke at o'dark thirty and went garage salen.
This vintage hanging planter was Joe's mother's. 
It has been in one of our sheds covered in dirt. 
It needed to make it's way inside don't you think?

We picked up this Italian bowl this morning at a sale. 
It is signed by the artist and depicts a part of the Italian coast we have visited.

 Sweet hands in Pencil Sketch.

Now we are off to supper with friends who recently returned from a mission trip to Honduras for three weeks.

I fear I may never catch up in commenting, please forgive me.

joy and peace
