Due to the overwhelming success of the holiday redware designs I did, I've been working off & on on some new designs....Well, after a few misses, I finally hit on some designs I liked the outcome of !
The line is ALL patriotic pieces! There are stars, flags, etc. They came out wonderful & we just spent this afternoon reworking an area in the shop to display these pieces in all their "glory"!

Parting ways...

I've decided it's time to part ways with some things in my personal collection.

Sooo what does this mean?

Lots of these primitive wares will be available in our brick & mortar store! All the items
are pieces that I just simply love tho no longer have the room they're in need of a
new home! I've added a few things today ~ an old chippy black bench & an old quilt! I'll
be digging out more things & taking them to the shop in the morning! So if you're in the area,
we hope you'll stop in!

On a side note, we have a smaller, but still good! selection of herbs & flowers left!
Hurry while they're still here!

I've been in a patriotic mood lately with things I've been working on...maybe it's because I'm a Memorial Day baby (which my dear hubby keeps reminding me is NOT far off)...or because now that spring open house has passed, I feel like it's time for stars & stripes...
In all actuality, I LOVE flags. Especially old ones. In fact, we have our spare bedroom done up in patriotic theme...
so where am I going with this??!
being in a patriotic mood has been carried over into the shop. I just got in a shipment of star flag bundting ~ tea stained. They really are pretty! I've finished up some sweet little liberty bust dolls. VERY cute!! Extremely primitive, too! And I'm working on a few more patriotic dolls & a wonderful punchneedle piece.
So stop on in the shop to find lots of goodies for your patriotic home ~ even if just for the summertime!!

A Thank you...

to all those who schelped out in the rain & mud yesterday & today for our Open House. We enjoyed the visits from old friends ~ and new! ~ and hope to see you all again soon!

On another note, everyone who made it out enjoyed the availability & selection of herbs & flowers so much that I've decided to offer them for a few more weeks! But hurry! Once they're gone, no more will be in stock! We have all the wonderful common herbs & some really unique annuals & perinnials. A few hanging baskets left too ~ including some hummingbird plants!

ALSO the Tomato Leaf lotion & soap didn't get bottled in time for this weekend (I just ran out of time!) so I'll be finishing it up & will have it out in the shop this week. As well as some more sewn goodies (a few dolls, some sheep & new rabbits).

Sooo if you didn't make it out this weekend, we hope you'll stop in soon to see the new goodies!!
Thanks again!

Spring Gatherings at Homethrown Pottery!!

This weekend is our FIRST annual SPRING OPEN HOUSE ~ aptly called "Spring Gatherings at Homethrown Pottery" because...well....I wanted something catchy...AND we have a huge gathering of spring goodies for this weekend! I'm still frantically sewing away, painting furniture, pouring candles, working on soap....The last load of pottery went into the kiln last nite & will come out Friday evening. I have quite a few new pottery pieces ~ the shelves will be fully stocked! And David took the day off work today to help get a few more things finished up ~ a few more cabinets & birdhouses...


to destruct our kitchen..

YES! of ALL times for something to go wrong, our refridgerator DIED yesterday. Kaput...According to the repairman it had lived its life & would be cheaper to buy a new one...Well if you haven't bought a fridge lately, it's like buying a small used car! It took a trip to Lowes & to Sears ~ and 4 hours later ~ before we commited to one..BUT what does this have to do with destruction of our kitchen? Well, I didn't want a regular refridgerator this time ~ I wanted a side-by-side. And he said "Oh, it'll fit." Turns out he was humoring me. It needs an extra 1/2" at least...So he & papaw are going to have to "modify" (his words) the hole a bit to make it fit. Mind you there's a wall on one side & cabinets on the other so I have NO idea how he will be modifying. I probably don't want to know..And did you all know they no longer keep fridgerators in stock? My guess would be because there's too dadgum many to choose from & they have no room. It's ridiculous the choices! So it will be delivered in all its glory ~ in the rain ~ tomorrow...

I digressed...

We will have a wonderful selection of herbs & flowers for this weekend too!!
I hope if you're in the area you venture out this way!
Saturday April 5th ~ 10am-6pm
