I have some truly amazing friends! No, I mean it, I am surrounded by many very creative & artistic people. One of my close friends is selling her paintings in galleries here & in Hawaii for thousands of dollars. Another part of my gang has written 5 books & working on a 6th right now, actually 3 of my buddies have written books! Crazy! Some are musicians with CDs out & invitations all over the world.
So I should have known better when I gave one friend a bag of old ceramic flower pots that I no longer use. They were cracked & dirty but I couldn't just throw them in the garbage because they had sentimental meaning to me. I had purchased them at a goodwill store while I was still single. They just captured me & began my devotion to all things blue & white! I have used them for the last 30 some years for plants, combs, lipsticks, pens etc.
I gave them to a friend who does mosaics for a living. (well...part of her living)I figured she could use them in some of the cool stuff she makes & sells. Well, yesterday before I left work to come home mildly sick (Feeling fine now! Thanks for asking!) she begged me to come into her office & see her latest project. Tears soon appeared as she unveiled a gorgeous mosaic just for my family made out of our treasured pieces! What are you going to do with a buddy like that? I am blessed!
