for Ben and for Emily's god-daughter



(pots by Gary Rith)
So, me and my pal Ben Marlan are cooking up a joint project with (probably) the upper teaset. He will sculpt and paint some type of cabinet or special niche for it.
The lower teapot, with two cups goes to Emily's god-daughter in Jersey City. Turns out Emily and Courtney and the little girl went to American Girl for a teaparty. You sit in the tea room, ask for the company of one of the dolls on the wall, who joins you, then you have tea and cakes for real---apparently the little girl is now mad for tea and tea parties.

I'm sure Emily's God daughter will love it! We had a little shop here that held tea parties for the little girls. They had so much fun. They all got dressed up, with hats and little white gloves and were served tea and little cakes and such. It was so cute to watch them.

I'm actually hosting a tea party for my daughter's fifth b-day next month.

Oh, there will also be manis and pedis -- turning five and all ;o)

Great gift!
