Mitchell’s Broken Deb Babcock Cup

w16-12-30-nost-mrp-babcock-cup-1

Over the years, Mitchell and I have gifted ourselves with a few pieces
of Deb Babcock’s lovely funny colorful pottery.
Each has a custom water cup we use at our desk, with symbols we chose.
Mitchell’s was retired to live a life holding conservation tools recently
when we discovered a crack developed on the lip, above.
He was heartbroken, and I gifted him with another,
and the lesson is he loves the new one even more.

Endings and beginnings.  Always unexpected.

Tracey Fletcher King, FAMOUS Aussie painter of blue and white (recently),
painted Mitchell’s CUPPA before it was whacked!
I love seeing how differently we handled it!
Tracey does a regular Cuppa Project, and her blog is funny funny!
Follow her!  Classes too…. and yes, I’ve taken them all!
