What GF Got For Her Birthday!

Loot?? did someone say Loot? I feel like I hit the jackpot! I'm the proud owner of an exquisite piece of art! And, Nathan cooked breakfast! Anon GF

------------------------------------------------



A few weeks ago, I conspired with a certain Action Hero to help me choose just the right bowl for a Birthday Present. I gave him some brief descriptions of what I had in mind and he sent me a number of bowls that fit the bill. I chose this one. The turquoise inlay is what decided it for me.


The good news is that since choosing it, this bowl has won an award at the Alaska State Fair. Hey, GF's getting an award winning bowl.


The bad news is that since choosing it, this bowl has won an award at the Alaska State Fair. Which means it's still on display with the Alaska State Fair...not here. I suppose what I really gave GF was a few pictures of a really cool hand-made bowl.

Ah well. It'll be like a whole 'nother birthday when it shows up!

Drool, drool, drool...

HEY Anon GF!

Janiece got drool on your bowl!

Much like Chuck Norris' tears, Janiece's drool has many mystical properties heretofore undocumented. I'm sure it increased the depth of shine on the turquoise.

Good thing I used the drool-proof spar finish.

This bowl won 2nd Premium at the Alaska State Fair, which is a pretty big deal. Yes I'm proud of that, and glad that it will go to a good and appreciative and anonymous owner.

I retrieved it from the Judges today, and it will be on it's way to you tomorrow, Anon GF. I hope you like it, it's one of my favorite pieces ever.
