Wait. It's Only Wednesday?

Good Evening, Kittens.

I'm in the midst of the dryer cycle (and eating cookies) and thought I would take a few minutes to post.

Work is work. Life is life. On the plus side, there may be a date on Friday (after Tomokito's Bad Mommy Happy Hour).

How about we give away a Poor Little Vase Who Needs a Home? I have 20 pieces of pottery from this session. I have already picked the ONE I am allowed to keep. 6 others have been tagged as Xmas (or other) presents. Which means (if you are as good at math as I am), I have eleventygabillion pieces of pottery to get rid of ...

This cute little vase, glazed in warm jade and Lisa's favorite blue, is 4.5 inches tall and 5.5 inches wide (at the mouth). It's a little heavy, weighing less than my refrigerator and more than a martini glass. And it needs a Good Home. Somewhere to be loved. Somewhere to belong. And, that, my friends, is not in my apartment.

So, here's the deal ... take a look at the photos. Decide if you can provide a loving home for a kinda ugly vase. Leave a comment describing how you will create a Happy Home for it. And, like, maybe tomorrow or the next day, I'll decide who to send it to. Doesn't that sound like fun?

One final photo:



  1. I will kiss it and hug it and call it "George."

  2. I think it's pretty. I'll put it on a pedestal and worship it's hottness!

  3. Last year you gave me two pieces of pottery. My sister fell in love with one, and stole it from me. The remaining piece is lonely, and needs a friend (or two). :)

  4. That vase is totally a "George". I nominate Clio Bluestocking.

  5. Being completely honest? I'd try to plant something in it, forget to water it and let it die. And then the handcrafted-with-love-by-none-other-than-VUBOQ-himself vase would sit on my counter behind my sink with a dead, dried up old skeleton of a plant for a year or two until my hubby gets sick of it, dumps the plant, washes the vase and puts it away in a cupboard which I will only discover a year or two later and be all, "Hey--here's that cool vase that VUBOQ made--I've totally been wondering where it was!"

    True story.

  6. I have the lovely blue vase you gave to me. It is lonely and sad. It needs a partner. The Jesus bear to its Muhammad bear, as it were.

  7. I would name it Vuboq and fill it with pretty flowers. Vuboq looks like he'd like daisies.

    Hi Vuboq,
    I came here via Bossy. I love blue glazes. I love pottery. My husband tends to break anything that comes into our home.
    SO... I would give your vase a good home by bringing it to my office, where it can reside safely on my desk and be admired all day long. I would also name it whatever you would like. Or Fred.

    Take care, p.j.

    I LOVE this. It just screams for a pretty flower arrangement. I hope whoever gets it will treat it very special.

    Just found you thru Bossy. You're a keeper, aren't you? Love the vase. Very cute. Would look good in my dining room, up high, away from my 1 & 2 yr old children. Keep up the hard drinking with strangers.

    If you haven't picked a winner I have my hand raised to be picked! This would look adorable in my room and the colors would go great!

  12. Visiting via Bossy's blog! Glad to find you!

    Love the color, it looks like a good vase to set on my dresser to hold change, buttons etc.

  13. Wouldn't you feel great if you could say your artwork was very much wanted in Europe? Like by me? Els van der Veen
