A Good Mug for the Weekend…surprise!!!


I am a huge fan of Kansas potter, Steve Coburn.  He makes practical and affordable items like the big coffee mug I use nearly everyday.  I have a white one that I love and at one time I had a blue one, but I left it at my old pottery studio in St. Louis…how ironic is that?  I love to run my fingers along the bottom of this mug and up and down the ridges, it’s a great tactile item for people that like to feel art.

During the last two weeks I spent a lot of time going back and forth to school and running errands for my job.  My mug was always with me.


As well as my stash of granola bars.  My door became a trash receptacle for wrappers, which is probably why I had one stuck in my shoe at P-Dub’s book signing, yeah…classy, me, uh-huh.


My mug and me, happy we be.


Look at my van, it says so much.  That’s another mug that I made for Clay on the floor, I don’t like it as much as my Coburn mug, but it’ll do in a pinch.  Wipes, tissues and paper towels….hm, kind of leads a person to think that we’re messy or always wiping a snotty nose.  Okay, yes, we’re messy and I always need to blow my nose….like ten times a day, leave me alone, I can’t help it.


I also can’t help sharing my morning coffee and my granola bar with the thing in the back seat.

And I can’t help sharing one of these mugs with you.  That’s right brothahs and sistahs…it’s another Coal Creek Farm treat!
