My Friday Favorites...a day late

A while back I promised to post some pictures of my daughter Elizabeth's ceramics that she made her senior yr. of school. She made quite a bit of it..
These 2 lovely little dishes...the girls' prom flowers are in them..(they've went to a lot of prom's and Christmas dances..)
A purple pitcher that she made for me....It's really unusual...but I like it :)

A close up of the one with her name on it..It's so pretty..and it's shiny blue inside too!
This is the turtle that she made for Sam. It sits on my computer desk next to where my mouse is..it's a favorite too!
That's about all for now...These were supposed to be my Friday Favorites, but I wasn't able to get on here to post. Elizabeth loved her ceramic class and we loved what she brought home.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!
I couldn't help myself...I'm in the mood for Autumn...hence, the blog change. I love Fall and this background reminded me of quilt squares...
Hugs to everyone!!
Never apart, maybe in distance,
but not in heart.

I REALLY like your daughter's creations. Items like this are so special because they come directly from the hands, heart & minds of a unique individual. There are no two alike! It's lovely that they are used to hold good memories, too.

I like your background and share your eagerness for autumn. It was 94 degrees here yesterday, however.

You go girl, I love the fall background!!! And you made me laugh with your post title because I had Friday favorites to post too but with the husband and everything I just didn't get to it!
Your favorites this week were very precious Jerelene and your daughter is so beautiful! I remember Ginny making me some ceramics from her class in H.S. I still have them and use them everyday!
The heat index is 96 today as I'm sure it pretty close there by you too! The fall background is a pleasent thought! Love Di

Such beautiful favorites!!
And I love your daughter's picture too!
This is really sweet, Jerelene, and I really like all Elizabeth's creations, but I think my most favorite is the turtle she made for Sam (mostly because she thought to make it for him! That is so sweet!), and I also really like the purple pitcher! It's so unique and the colors are wonderful!
Beautiful post, Jerelene!
Thanks for sharing these favorites with us!
Love you, Eileen

Elizabeth did such a good job with her ceramics! The turtle is so cute and tugs at my heart and then I love the colors and designs of the one with her name on it!

Still praying about the job situation for your hubby!

blessings and hugs,

Elizabeth is very creative...and even more importantly, has a heart of gold...sweet gift to make for Sam. I love the quotation at the end of your blog: Never apart, maybe in distance, but not in heart. So true...
Love to you from Jackie
