Tea for Two, Me and You

Anam Cara ~ Heart Friend, Closer than a sister, Soul to soul.  That's what Maureen is for me.

This tea cup was made from the clay my husband dug out of the ground.

I'm developing a line of pottery that I'm calling, "Mercy Mugs."  They aren't perfect.  Some of them are lopsided.  Some of them are cockeyed.  Some of them have lumps and bumps that you probably wouldn't find a finished, retail mug.  But that's the point.

Just as God shows mercy to us even though we are lopsided, lumpy bumpy imperfect examples, so I'm showing mercy to these mugs.  And you look at them, maybe you'll remember the mercy shown to you, and be grateful.

I love that your mugs are not all sleek and round like they came off the assembly line. I love the handmade quality of them!

That is such a sweet idea for a new product line Judy! I love that your husband dug up the clay too, that really does make them truely and completely handmade!

There's something perfect about a flawed or imperfect mug. This is a really clever idea. It's good to see this new line, too.

Wonderful idea for a new venture, we're all imperfect, so this lends compassion.

LIFE IS JUST SO FULL OF COOL STUFF!
