Miniature Monday - A Real Dish!

Grandma overheard Grandpa telling a friend that Grandma was a Real Dish when they met.

This confused Grandma, but she wasn't surprised. Her memories the 70's are a bit fuzzy. She says that during that time she was doing personal medical research with herbal and fungal remedies and they caused her all sorts of problems. She does remember some things, though.

She remembers having the munchies quite often, and for a short time being able to hear colors. She also remembers feeling like she was made of stone sometimes too.

So maybe she was a Real Dish when she met Grandpa. Maybe the memories of munchies was really the sense of emptiness of being a vessel? A bowl maybe? Maybe something stone-like?

So she looked at her old pottery and found a blue bowl that looked pretty familiar. Was this the dish she was?

She is not sure, but just in case she is selling the bowl. She says it all just really freaks her out, man.

The bowl is made from porcelain. It is one inch wide and about 1/2 inch tall. You can see it in my Etsy shop.

Oh, wow! I have no idea how you make things so...perfect looking! I was trying to make a tiny little offering bowl to go with a project I'm working on. It turned out lumpy and, well, weird.

What size and color do you need? I may have something laying around that would work.

I knew that glazed look in her eyes was caused by something.

Sheesh, finally getting back to read through blogs after a couple of busy weeks, lol!

I'm looking for something in black or a really dark color, something tiny, like the Barbie sized bowl. I'm making a "Banishing box".
