Glass Toys

GlassI just received this lovely sampler of terrazzo glass chips and can’t wait to play with them.  The first thing I’ll do is fire bits of them in the glaze test vessels I’ve been making over the past few days.  After I find some combinations I like, it’s time to get creative in the pottery studio.

















SO cute!  We’re up to 7 now.  They hang together like a tiny fluffy bouncy gang.

Someone’s About To Get In Trouble

6Beatrice had better get her nose out of FiFi’s dog bowl.  Period.

There’s Something Out There

PondSomething has been visiting our pond, as evidenced by footprints in the ice.  We’ve been keeping an eye out for the culprit, it’s been very sneaky… so far.

Pretty Baby

5A beautiful lamb in the hay feeder pauses to inspect the nice lady who visits the flock a few times every day.

Big Snow

FiFi Snow Snow SheepWe had about 15 inches here yesterday.  Brian’s been plowing our half mile driveway all morning.  Everyone seemed happy to have the barn for shelter, particularly since the snow is deeper than the sheep’s legs are long.  It’s in the 40’s today so should be gone before too long.  It’s pretty while it lasts.

A Beautiful Day

4We got almost a foot of hard packed snow here overnight and it’s still coming down.   Jack kept falling through the crunchy stuff on top so decided to ride out to the pasture instead of racing out there.

Five So Far

3We have five lambs so far with more on the way.  I hope the pregnant ones hold off until after our big storm tomorrow.  Weather models are predicting anything between 1 and 14 inches for us here.   We’ve cycled the generator, gassed up the vehicles and I’m running for a few groceries today while Brian puts the scraper blade on our tractor so we should be all set.

Our Empty Bowl Project

Bowl1Brian and I signed up to donate 50 bowls for our community’s Empty Bowl Event to fight hunger  and we ended up making 75.  I am a lot better on the pottery wheel because of this project so win-win!

Ramses, The Tall

2Kat’s little ram has legs that don’t quit. He’s a handsome little thing, and very fast.
