Christmas Pottery making!

This time of year is usually the time that I spend at least couple week turning crockery for Christmas gifts. I enjoy going to my shop, load my small wood stove with some good dry hickory fire wood. set a pot with fresh water on top , for tea, turn on my old Christmas music and get ready to get my hands in the mud. I then have my visitors ( my children) that quickly notice my absence and come join me in pot making. Much of what I do is in secret so I can surprise them but sometimes I let them come and work their own little pots too.

I couldn't do much today because after coming home from church and having our supper, I had only couple hours before get ready for our evening bible study however, it was enough time to turn 6 pots. I have been requested to make soup bowls and because a while back I did some with my own drawings transferred to the bowls, I now had few friends ordering some from me . I will try my best to get it done but it is not a promise!*grin*
Here is my pottery shop.It faces my vegetable garden . I make my porcelain dolls and any clay work here in this red building. Mattie, my sheep dog, wanted to say *hello* to you!*grin*
Next to the building is a small trailer. That belongs to our theatre. We had to buy one to transport our theatre whenever we perform. When I first began the theatre I had no idea that I would need so much of space and *things*!!!!!!!!!!!
then the little small building is my doll's shop. There I have 3 tables. One only for sewing. On for cutting and one for all my other needs such as wig making, wings making ...etc... and all my supplies I storage there. It is a little messy but It is comfortable enough.. I even have a small fridge, air condition and a small heater there!


Here is a unfinished painting of what my shop looks like during summer time when my flowers are in full bloom.... I live in a beautiful place......*smiles

Oh Tita,
This is so enchanting....you really do live a rich life. I want to go visit you, look at you right in the eyes and just be blessed. Your pottery making sounds like so much fun and that sheep dog, what a cutie!!! I am super blessed. I wasn't sure if you were ever going to post on this blog again, but I am going to put it back on my list; I had thought that the miniature blog was going to replace this one. Very, very wonderful indeed! Bisous, ANita
