It's That Time of Year!

My body (and my head) can't seem to work 8+ hour days anymore.  But that gets thrown out the window this time of year!

I had to be careful how I took pictures...there are lots of commissioned Christmas surprises on these shelves!

My goal is to have all the pots made, slipped and decorated by Tuesday of next week.  (And I just threw another assorted board of pots today.)  I need to pack and cook on Wednesday.  Thursday is Thanksgiving at my brother's and Friday we leave for a long needed break...We haven't actually vacationed in over 15 years.  We are heading to the beach for 5 days!!  But don't worry everyone, the alarm system will be on and my eagle eye neighbors will be on duty!  (For all of you that worry when it is announced on the internet that someone is going out of town...)

On our return the pots will be dry and waiting for firing the following day.  

Now if I can just find time to start loading my Etsy shop....Maybe tomorrow???

Where did October go?

Don't blink because November is right behind it!

Busy, busy.

We finally laid Dad to rest at Arlington.

Followed by my Mom's detached retina....

She had to spend two hours in this position (you can't see the kindle on the floor, she is watching Doc Hollywood...) and three days on her left side as much as possible.  (I hope you don't mind the picture Mom.  I know I wasn't allowed to post the OTHER ONE.)  I am happy to report that her vision is slowly improving.

Now I am finally back decorating pots!  I know I have a few anxious clients waiting to hear from me.  I'll be emailing you in the next day or two!
