I now have a very cunning plan.

I have been trying to get TOF motivated to go for a drive out to Raglan, but so far we haven't made it.  He has been toiling away in his garden, fixing taps, having siestas, and basically kicking back and relaxing.  But tomorrow we have to go as I now have a box of Pottery from Dawn that needs to be delivered to a Gallery in Raglan and they are  expecting it tomorrow.  I think the weather is going to be bollocks but that is fine with me, quite like the coast when it is stormy, might pack us a picnic.

Yes I have been out to visit Dawn, hence me having a box of pottery that needs delivering.
Dawn has two Staffies that love me, Milly was smiling for me today, and Blackie one of her black cats was smooching me.  I love huge pots with flowering plants in them, and these ones all look fabulous at the moment on her deck.

Dawn has always made a very good frog and I love the family that are in the top part of a bird bath that she has made.  She put the base of it in her kiln today, I cannot wait to see and photograph the finished thing.  Her bird baths are selling really well.

 The Mask is a newby on the block and has inspired a set of huge pots in the photo below.

 Face pots, cobweb covered totem tops, and a fabulously colourful vase.

 Huge jug and more lovely flowers.


Now this amazing creation has no name and Dawn has no idea what it is or what it could be used for but it is her bit of "Steam Punk".  The detail on it is unreal, what ever it is I love it.  I would put sticks of incense in it.

It is blowing  like a bastard outside right now, with a bit of luck it will have blown itself senseless tonight and the beach will be ready for us tomorrow!!

Ooh I love the face thing and the lovely little caravan thing and the pretty pretty seaside daisies.

Happy new Year!
