Last week tax day was made so much happier for me when I learned I had won a bonus prize from Polly’s Path at Blogspot. I featured Polly’s Path and especially her animals earlier last week. When I got home from my off-homestead job on Monday, I found a box with two carefully wrapped bowls. My husband was eyeing the box suspiciously, wondering what I had ordered. I told him that I’d won what was in the box. He wanted details. I told him that a goat drew my name out of a hat. I didn’t tell him that a human was involved too.
The bowls are the lovely creations of Tom Seelos, a Georgia potter. I knew I had to use them right away. I was making spinach soup, and it was perfect for these bowls, with their detailed white-glazed rims. Yes, I said white-glazed rims; the coloration in this photo is dominated by our poor lighting, not the color of the bowls (or soup). This photograph doesn’t do the bowls justice, but you can at least get an impression of their beauty. Thank you again, Polly!
