I celebrated another birthday the other day... somehow they are coming
faster and faster as the years roll on !
My kids were all home so it was really good to be together and get teased about the grey hairs in person.
My two girls baked me a cake and decorated it so pro !
Among my gifts was this big box and they all told me not to shake it as I
was going though the
"I wonder what it is ?" guessing game.
Well, they had played a trick on me and
this is what was in the box :
This is a teapot made by Brandon Phillips of Abilene,Tx. I have been admiring his pottery for quite sometime. Brandon has the eye of an artist and the touch of a fine craftsman. http://www.etsy.com/shop/phillipspottery
About three weeks ago he posted some new pots in his online store and I decided to treat myself to this zinger. After clicking the "purchase now" button I told myself that I wouldn't start getting impatient about it, I would just push it out of my mind and chill...
But towards the end of last week really I started wondering where the heck it was and had to stop myself from anxious thoughts. The day of my birthday I was really thinkin about how nice it would be to have it arrive that day and asked my daughters to make a special trip into the post office but they only came back with the usual - no box from the states.
Anyways - they got me !
The teapot had arrived on the 19th and they had scooped it up and hidden it from me !
But more importantly, I got the teapot - intact and even better than the online pictures. Although I must say, Brandon does a really good job of photographing his work. The person purchasing his work from one of his photographs can rest assured that they are seeing a good representation of the work.
I think I'm going to learn alot from this teapot.
