I am back at work trying to get the orders filled so that I can create some inventory for Jugtown and the upcoming Celebration of Seagrove Potters. I will be making some jewelry for a pottery bust that Sandi Barden created for the collaborative auction. Pam and I also donated one of the teapots that we collaborate on. Pam made the teapot (obviously) and it is glazed in cobalt with copper. I made the sterling handle and lid. The lid is hand stamped and I added one of my birds as the topper.
There will be quite a few collaborative pieces in the auction on Friday night during the Gala and will be a great time to pick up some never to be done again pieces! Also it will give you first chance at shopping the booths and finding great pieces before we open to the general public on Saturday morning.
The house passed final inspection last week with flying colors! There is still some staining to do and cabinetry to go into the laundry room, etc. and floor that needs mopping badly! Wes ordered our new couch yesterday, thanks to Pam and Vernon for finding it! Now kitties will need extensive training about scratching. They will be wearing their new purple claw tips soon to prevent scratching and hopefully wont look too silly.
Benjamin and Bonnie Burns gave us this beautiful sink as a house warming present. We have chosen towels, rug etc to match it and love the way it is looking. Thanks Benjamin and Bonnie! I thought it would be a small bathroom but it is way bigger than I had imagined it would be.
So now I have to stay focused on work, and on the work for the COSP and do the house stuff at night! This is the beginning of the busy season, and I hope it will be busy for all of us here in Seagrove!
