Little green jug don't I love thee!

I chipped my favorite little cream jug last week.
I can be so clumsy it's excruciating.You know those couple of seconds after an accident when you almost feel you could rewind and do it right instead of wrong and then reality hits there's no undoing the stupidity...excruciating.
I'm so fond of my little jug, I can't bare to throw it out .I bought it in a charity shop about six years ago, so it's any ones guess how old it is.
So this weekend I did a painting of it in watercolour just to immortalise it, and you know what, I think I'll be doing more work involving it. It has such a satisfying shape and delicate colour, no wonder I love it.

What a bore. I have several jugs that I cannot bear to throw out, event though they are chipped.

Great blog. Shall continue to visit.
