Once the mail carrier left and the dogs calmed down I retrieved the package and found it was from my blogging friend Linda Starr. She knows I've been going through a tough time lately and felt compelled to do something to add some sunshine to my life. She did just that.
In the package was a very sweet espresso cup. I do enjoy an espresso pretty frequently so this will be used often and I will feel the friendship of Linda with each use. It is hand built with a very cool gun metal glaze that shows a few touches of green where it's thiner. I believe that I will notice more and more colors in the glaze as I expose it to different light sources. You gotta love a glaze like that.

The box was also very full of something that every potter loves, bubble wrap! It may sound silly to people who aren't spending so much time trying to protect fragile items but the gift of bubble wrap to a potter is a great gift indeed.
Linda, thank you so much for your sweet, thoughtful and caring gift. I am very grateful for you. Many hugs to you.
