New Mugs

I've been using a new majolica glaze that I found here. I love it!
Some new whale mugs....a little more of a modern feel to them.
Little black dots on the inside.
And some new florals. Still waiting on the green and blue glaze that was back ordered, so I am limited in the floral department. So the vines and whales are the styles du jour.
More small boxes....
Have a great day and here's a link! Cheers!

9th Annual Goreyfest and Gala

The 9th annual Gorey Festival celebrating the life of my favorite illustrator, Edward Gorey, will take place the day before Halloween on Cape Cod. I had participated in the first auction at the Edward Gorey House and had donated my self published book "ABC'S of the Alphabet". There is Edward sitting in the audience with his beloved fur coat watching the ballerina and her "T" is for tutu....and tea and tiptoe! My own little homage.
Well, the fur coats are up for auction at this annual gala. Edward Gorey had a change of heart in the 1980's and put his furs in storage, never to wear them again. In accordance with his wishes, The Edward Gorey Charitable Trust awards grants annually to major animal welfare groups including the Animal Rescue League of Boston, The Bat Conservation International, and The Xerces Society, all whom share Edward Gorey's love for animals. :)
Happy Halloween, Edward Gorey! OOOOOOhhhhhh!

More Mermaids

The lovely Bernadette made some more mermaids and I dressed them up.
These are all for Darcy....she wanted one with grey hair for her Mom.
I think she turned out stunning!
Then another pretty blonde with a brass shell and pearl.

And a brunette.
She has a sly look on her face.
And a little brass mirror to check up on her coif. TTFN! Here is a very special link!
