this week shows Nadine and Sylvia Szechenyi with their dogs in front of the Vanderbilt Mansion in New York. The two girls were the grand-daughters of Cornelius Vanderbilt, whose daughter, Gladys, had married the Hungarian Count Lazlo Szechenyi. The photograph - which can be found on the Estonia State Archive stream on Flickr - was taken in 1931 and suggests themes such as girls, twos, dogs, steps and the mysterious number 18.

My photos link in three ways...my sister and myself in our beautiful hand tailored dresses by seamstress Grandmother...and the Vanderbilt connection of the Biltmore House here in Asheville.
And I'll add some old photos of some pottery of mine, just because I have not been posting as much about my pottery lately as I should. After all, what is my blog titled anyway!?
My first blog, Alchemy of Clay, First Edition, shared a bit of ancient pottery (Jomon Pottery from Japan)
This pottery inspired me to do this...
Enveloped in Your Light, may I be a beacon to those in search of Light. Sheltered in Your Peace, may I offer shelter to those in need of peace. Embraced by Your Presence, so may I be present to others.
