Sitting on my workbench today, courtesy of potter and sculptor Michael Douglas. I think he brought it here to keep a close eye on my work, but Mike tells me he’s been making mugs like this for almost 40 years. They are stoneware and safe n’ strong, and are available at the Rain Barrel Sculpture Gallery in Islamorada, or directly from Mike – just email him with subject line “face mug”.
The 4-year-old likes to put his “coin collection” to good use.
Not sure if these colors are brought on by the (lack of) winter weather, but I love seeing them on my walks.
Odd as it may look (at least to me), even ibis like to sit on a wire every once in a while.
The fossilized kind. There is an abundance of it here in Islamorada.
As they are known in this household. They’re tiny, but so tasty they deserve a fancy bowl.
At the local pea rock garden.
Looks so different on a cloudy day.
Sea-creature-themed mailboxes are a thing here in the Keys.
The 4-year-old’s literature, proudly brought home from school. Very cute.
