My Talented Mama!

I know I've bragged on here before about my mom. But I just can't resist another chance to show off how talented she is.

I saw this bowl at her house and pleaded until she sent it home with me - I love everything she makes, but I am so smitten with my new birdie bowl!

I really admire the way my mom has used her pottery to express some of her grief since we lost Dad, and she's made some amazing pieces, but it made me smile to see something so cheerful.

In the bottom of the dish is melted glass from my favorite glass blowers, and it melted just right to look like a little birdie reflection.

What a bonus, to get to spend time with my mom and come home with such a beautiful birdie bowl!
