May Second. I love this day. It's my birthday.
This morning Cranky unloaded a most unexpected gift on me, while I was still in bed.
It was a selection of fabulous Heath ceramics. A few weeks ago, I had drooled over these pale blue items, in all permutations. Cranky got all the permutations, the loveable lug. Wow.
Even better, this morning's New York Times is emblazoned "May 2, 2010." My birthday! I love when that happens. AND, in the "T" magazine (if you get the print edition at all; this didn't seem to show up on line), there's a cool suggestion for what would be a fabulous Heath giftie, and I already got mine! Very same thing.
Neat vase in retro colors. Picks up nicely on a blue theme that's been going through our house. Plus those jaunty swipes of contrasting colors.
I am having a most happy day.
