A couple of weeks ago, I received an email:
Hi Andrea,It’s me, Textile Ranger! I am going to be in Phoenix the first part of next week, April 8 and 9, staying by North Mountain State Park. I have stayed there before a few years ago, so you when you wrote about hiking at South Mountain, that registered with me. It may be very far from your part of Phoenix to where I will be, but I just wanted to check with you about possibly meeting for lunch or an art museum visit or something on one of those days. If you can’t make it, that is fine, but I didn’t want to come to Phoenix without mentioning it to you.

Those of you who know my unicorn obsession can just imagine my reaction when author Joanna Meyer posted this picture on Facebook:
That’s right. Despite how beautiful her books look on the shelf, I immediately fixated on the mug. Joanna kindly steered me to her friend, writer Hanna Hutchinson (aka Hanna C. Howard), who is also an awesome artist, and sells her hand-painted mugs on her Etsy shop, Ophelia’s Gypsy Caravan.
She’s incredibly cute, too. Here she is showing us how she works:
There are no more of the unicorn mug above in her shop, but she does take custom orders, so I guess I could request one. . .
She also has other unicorn designs, as well as some equally lovely other products.
Most of the mugs also have a literary quote, though it might not be visible in the photograph.
And there are also a couple of t-shirts. I especially like this one:
