So this happened today and it made me much sadder than breaking a bowl should have done. It’s just that I’ve had this bowl for so long and it’s been at times a water bowl, at other times a food dish, for the cats. Since way before I even had my present threesome, so it’s gone through two generations.
At the time I was still recovering from my hysterectomy over Christmas-New Year 1999-2000 and Pablo had gone away on a trip to Portugal… and he brought this back for me. Because, cats. Then this morning Morcilla lept off her little table and knocked the bowl off and… smash! Dammit.
Little vandals. When something I care so much about breaks I glue the parts together if I can and just keep it as a memento. Fergie was good at murdering my ceramics.
Morcilla pretty much breaks everything. Lucky for her she’s so damn cute.
These days glueing is a real option, so I would have a go at it….choose the glue carefully so it’s robust enough for what you need. Just because it’s not perfect doesn’t mean it is not beautiful and full of memories!
Too many shattered bits. Oh well… I still have the photos!

Could make a mosaic perhaps? Sad to see a memorable item go.
Ohhh… wish I’d have thought of that. Too late now.
