The first week in May is always fun for me, the biggest reason being that my favorite local potters club always holds its semi-annual pottery sale on the first Saturday in May. My mom and I were there when the doors opened as we always are, ready to find some new handmade pieces.
I’m ashamed to admit that I lived up to my reputation and bought another teapot (it’s a sickess, I realize this). I used the fact that it’s my birthday on Monday (the second reason that this week is always fun for me) as justification for this moment of weakness. My dad sent me a little money as a gift, so the teapot was essentially my gift from him (are you buying any of this?!).
…and I also got four of these cute soup mugs. They’re a nice size (about 5 inches across), and I’m envisioning winter evenings by the fire with a steaming mug of homemade chili or soup.I just had to share a photo of the amazing cake that my mom made for my birthday (we celebrated tonight). It’s the biggest, loveliest (and yummiest) strawberry shortcake I’ve ever seen.
