The last time I participated in the ABC-Along, I think "B is for" is the only letter I actually followed through on. It is an obvious one for me, and while I was committed to sticking to the blue theme this time around, I didn't want a compete redux of an old post. (Actually, I was tempted to just cut and paste that post into this one and leave it at that. When you see these dark and gloomy photos you might wish I had. I do.)
I have also told of my mad search for any Blue Sheep items that I could get my hands on, and what I am showing here isn't even all of what I have found. The line was discontinued, maybe before I became aware of it, and replacement pieces are expensive and difficult to come by. See the tea cozy above? I love it, but I am planning a felted tea cozy with needle felted sheep on it. Doesn't that sound adorable? It excites me. For my "B" I thought I would pair my favorite stoneware with some other blue favorites of mine.

The photography in this post is somewhat disappointing. The blues, while all so different in real life, all look so much the same in these photos. And they make this blog look like a tomb or a cave. So.Dark. I think I'm going to ask for one of these for Valentine's Day. (I know! We don't usually make a big deal out of Valentine's Day, but I'll work it for all I can get this time around. He can make it for me, a true gift of the heart.)
Three hundred thirty-five to go. I have posted every day for three months! Straight! wow. That represents just about one quarter of all of my posts in just over four years. wow.
