Snails Were My Playmates


I asked Silvia about the snails she befriended as a child, when she came to pick up on of my Socrates, the Snail Potholders today.

She told me that when she was a child in Germany, there were no other children around so she played by herself.  But there were snails where she lived,  big snails.   “I can relate to your special connection to Socrates” She wrote me, “Snails were my childhood playmates.”

I quickly sold out of my Socrates the Snail Potholders, but I do have some other potholders for sale in my Etsy Shop.

And if anyone wanted a Socrates the Snail Potholder and didn’t get one, let me know. I don’t think I’m done making them yet.

I like drawing that snail.
