Goodnight 2019 …

Our tax prep is DONE, dropped off to our favorite tax man, we’ll find out how well we did next week.  But, can I just say THANK GOODNESS! It wasn’t all bad, as we took plenty of breaks … Fed the Ladies a bit of watermelon (they love it!); We enjoyed some pool time with …

Mildly progressive …

Yep – I’ve been a mildly progressive  BUM this week!  I was helping DH with our pups, moving along stamp identification, making glass, cooking – oh, and catching the last rays of summer sunshine!  [While Monday was cooler temps – so far we’re 5/5 days in the pool and I hope to add one more …

It’s been a while …

I keep going back and forth with this creative rut.  I need to do a MAJOR deep clean in the studio, and I’m not looking forward to it.  But it has to happen, so … Next week! In the meantime, DH and I have played with some hot weather desserts.  We tried some homemade (no …

Squeezing out the last of summer …

We are totally taking advantage of our Indian Summer – and the heater in our pool.  Pool dayz … Gotta love ‘em!  In between, we had a vitrigraph (murrini cane) pull.  Requested yellow and black … make for a Green Lantern-esque cane.  Hmmm … I like it! Our Neo pups are seven weeks old, and …

Busy, but with down-time

We had a great week!  Lots of afternoon pool time, lots of puppy play time, some computer work and a bit of studio card time! But first … Chloe’s posse turned 7 wks old.  They are so fun to play with and too stinking cute!    If you want to see more of our bulldogs, …

Murrini, Funshine & Pups

I used some of our 96 murrini to make a couple of pendants.  They’re cute (!) and they proved to me they are fire-safe/stable.  So – check for cane listings in our shop and on our FB page!  And, it’s that time of year!  Yep – Sangria Weather.  So – I made up a vat, …

Pulls, Puddles and Pool Time!

DH and I continue to play with the vitrigraph kiln, making murrini cane and stuff.  We had a repeat pull tonight, and I learned the value of the bubble-squeeze (along with a more controlled ramp up)! We’ve had some 20+ pulls, and we are learning with each one!  But – that’s a lot of vit …

Pool Time, Dinner and the Cowbell …

Dinner with the (high school) girls, along with a bit of pool time this week, and – Oh, life is good!  [Thanks ladies!!!] My kilns are cooking (photos to come), and I’ve got my next vit stack ready.  Shooting for an ocean/water scheme, and I’m hopeful we can have our pull before heading back to …

Down-time …

Got through the open house … It was a great gathering and I can’t thank my brother & sister-in-law enough, amazing food and indescribably helpful!  Gerard’s Catering – they’re awesome! Unfortunately, DH and I stink at capturing photos … But here’s a great one of my 92 y/o Grandpa T with the twins … Awww! …

Road trip, new family and a few projects

Started the week bringing a new family member home.  Meet our boy, Greco, AKA Rrricco Suave.  He’s a big goofy puppy, and DH loves his dorky ears (or lack thereof …)!  His coat is so velvety soft! Now that we’re settling into a routine, I’m making stuff in the studio.  A new batch of hot …
