A New Year brings new ideas and new projects.
I love the ocean, the beach and the shells!

My inspiration, a large Scalloped Shell.
Shaping the clay.

Trimming, contouring.  Taking Shape.

Deep Shell Bowl, trimming.

Almost complete, leather hard.

Waiting for Clay to dry.

Finished with Shell.

My Parents Special Day

October 1, 1938, the wedding day of my parents, John Laurier Decoteau and Cecelia Marie Morneau in Ferndale, Michigan. Dad wore a blue suit and mom wore a blue velvet dress.

I'm sharing a photo of them taken while they were dating in 1938. Good looking couple if I do say so myself and you have to love that car, a 1930 Model A Ford! My father purchased the car for $90, making $10 payments per month. It even had a heater and a radio! They were styling!
In October they will be celebrating their 70th Wedding Anniversary! A feat not achieved by very many couples in todays society. This photo was taken a couple of months ago. My parents, born in 1919, are both 89 years old.

"Happy Anniversary, Mom and Dad"
