Happy Holidays!

I hope everyone had and continues to have a wonderful holiday season. It is always wonderful to spend time with family and friends and our trips to NH are always the best! We have our good friend staying at our house taking care of the kitties while we enjoy time with our family.
We always love the first dinner in NH! There were quite few of them so it was a multi-night dinner!
Bacchus got to take his first out of state trip and he has been so good. He is sporting his sweater that we got for him as temperatures were single digit. He also got a coat to go over it! I think he is enjoying his holiday more than anyone as he has been spoiled rotten, as is evident below as he and Max check each other out! I hope Santa was good to everyone and that the New Year will bring all you hope for!

Two Weeks Left

Wow, the time flies by!! It is hard to believe after so much prep work all year the Celebration of Seagrove Potters AND the Jugtown Holiday Kiln Opening are past. I've just posted some new items on my web site. I had to cut off the special orders and will continue with what I have in inventory. And i need to think about some shopping myself. A fun task I must say!!

These are on my What's New to buy page should you be looking for a last minute gift.
And for those that might want a miniature jug necklace there is just one left at Jugtown.

Jugtown Holiday Kiln Opening and Carolina Arts

Tom and Linda Starland have been supporters of Seagrove for a long time, through their Carolina Arts publication, which covers the Arts and events in the Carolinas.

They were a media sponsor for the Celebration of Seagrove Potters, for which we are very appreciative! Tom has written a several part account leading up to and following the Celebration. Please read his account of it here.

Jugtown is holding their annual Holiday Kiln Opening on Saturday. They have a wood kiln that was just fired, so you know there will be special pieces! People come early (some by 5am!!) to line up and get numbers. The museum opens early with coffee, tea and some tasty treats. The fireplace will be going and it is a nice social start to the morning.

I will be making up some of the miniature pot necklaces for the opening, fresh out of the wood kiln! Today I am going to focus on birds in silver with pottery since I have been doodling birds while being put on hold on various calls. Hopefully something good will come from it and you will see them on Sat!
