As part of our Monday routine, a small group of amazingly beautiful lady friends and myself gathered around steaming mugs of chamomile tea and gabbed about the recent headlines in our week.
While chatting as the temperatures grew steadily colder outside the windows, we also took on a creative feat to design pottery with sharpies and paint. Once you add the design that's bursting from your fingertips, heat the oven to 350 degrees, place the pottery on the middle rack, and bake for 30 minutes. The design is set for life and will not fade with wash or wear.
Because of the holidays slowly approaching, I decided to prepare mine as a gift for my grandmother. Her earlier travels to Africa are always ever-so-present in her discussions and will always serve as a capstone to her 85 years on this planet. That's how Eli, the plate surfing elephant, crystalized and materialized onto porcelain.
Here's to hoping Eli finds a great home with my Meemaw come Christmas day.
