We have a tourist town about 30 minutes from our home that has a lot of great shoppes. There is also a "village" of shoppes that has everything from Amish Buggy rides to a Tin Shop, a fudge shop and a jam and jelly kitchen. Double yum! Tucked in beside the fudge shop is an open air shop that sells pottery. It has become a favorite of ours.
It is hard to read the colors, my camera is not great, but this one is a deep green blue.
This one is smaller than the first one. A great size for the kids or adults who don't want to drink half the coffee pot in one sitting!
Tim picked this one. His reason? "I can dribble coffee down the side and who will know?" Real reason? He likes usual patterns.
This one is so pretty - the blue is amazing in person.
This one has much more muted colors and more of a mat finish than the others. This is a favorite mug of one of our regular guests!
The potter's name is Garnett.
Do you have any special pottery you collect? We use ours everyday. Yesterday we had my parents, my son, and our friend Denny here for dinner. These mugs got a work out with coffee and cold drinks, too.
Oh, and we had an earthquake yesterday. Having grown up in Southern California, I am used to it, but it is so unusual here on the East Coast. My family in California have been laughing at the media response to the earthquake here. My mom and I went shopping afterward. We bought yarn for a few projects for some sweet babies that are going to be born in the next several months. Two of my nieces are having babies! Both boys. I found really cute yarn for some wee boy hats, oh, and a big brother knit hat as well. Even though they all live in California, one baby boy Camden is coming in October and the other is due in December so they will need nice knit hats for their wee heads!
I will show you those projects soon! I need to run, I have to take a daughter to work soon, and then this afternoon my younger girls are going to a tye dye party! They are only a little bit excited!
Have a wonderful day!
