My friend, Kathy Ramsey, has taken up pottery in addition to all her other artistic pursuits. I’m the lucky recipient of the fruits of her labor.
The latest addition to a growing collection of authentic Kathy Ramsey creations is the wonderful Fleur de Lis bowl (left).
She “threw” it in observance of the Saints march to world championship status. I treasure it right up there with all my pears.
I LOVE pears…the shape of them, the colors, the taste. So for my birthday she painted the pear which hangs over my sitting room fire place. Then she gave me a “pear” spoon rest for Christmas, along with a fabulous plate with another organic (leaf) embellishment you can see below.
She painted my house several years ago – well, she didn’t actually paint my house although it needed it in the worst way. She did a portrait of my cottage and made my garden look the way I’ve always dreamed it would look – nary a single weed in sight.
Frankly, that will probably never happen because it doesn’t seem I’ll ever be blessed with grandchildren and I am a very lazy gardener. But when I pass on to the Great Here After, I hope someone buys that painting for $1.99 and admires the Garden That Never Was.
