Pottery a Play and a Purchase

Our daughter in-law Jamie has been taking pottery classes since January and is now going to start her own business and sell her products - I'd love to show you the Santa she made but they are going to be signed and numbered and then no more will be made.

Her instructor loves her work so much and has led her to this point - she has a high end Artisan's Show lined up for her and wants her to have the Santa's there - she’ll be asking a good price for them so you know the kind of clientele that comes to this show (I won't be there to purchase, but will be for support for sure).

She brought Two bowls over this weekend - she said I could have my pick and when I saw the dark Aqua Blue one I knew it was mine and after looking at the Tan one I started liking it too - so she gave them both to me - Jamie is like that...just so darned sweet.

Isn't the color and glaze pretty? This one measures 10 x 3-1/2

And see why I loved the Tan one too...I love how she scraped the sides of this one.

Quite awhile ago when she first started she brought over 4 small bowls - Two for sauces/salsa or whatever and then Two scalloped edge for kitty dishes.

On our way to Janesville to visit my aunt we stopped at an antique/thrift shop and knew from looking that we weren’t going to find much of anything but stuffed under a small table was a stool…I really don’t know why I pulled it out but the legs caught my eye.  Glad I did because it’s wonderful…it’s old and it’s worn but quite sweet – I love the needlepoint top.  And the good part was…it was only $12.00

Friday night we went to our Granddaughter Emily’s school play.  She was one of 3 Cheshire cats...not sure why there were 3 parts to the cat but she was the middle part.
The entire cast did a wonderful job and it was a lively and fun play.  Em’s last one though as she will be graduating 8th grade in June...hopefully she can continue in high school.

I love this one…

They made signing autographs fun, easy and productive!

Joe had a baseball game at the same time as her play so Brett and Heather were out behind the school for his game while grandpa and I were inside for the opening night…had to get a picture of Joe in his uniform when he got home.

Hope you are all having a great week…started out rainy here but turning out nice – the rest of the week is to be wonderful. 
Blessing to you all
