rainy sunday breakfast

I woke up to the rain pounding on my skylight. That sound immediately put me in a great mood. The light in my loft is beautiful on overcast days.

Breakfast is a time for me to ease into the day, read news on line, and enjoy pieces from my ceramics collection. Pictured above from left to right: a bowl made by Larry Bush, my instructor at RISD (he was throwing it away and I had to fish it out of the garbage), a Fiesta egg cup, a handmade tea pot I purchased at Studio Hop, a wonderful little store on Hope St., and a cup made by gleena.
