Happy Father's Day

Today is Father’s Day, a celebration to honor the men who are there working for, and raising, their children. Happy Father's Day (my father, Don Marsh, Sr.)My pottery cup is lifted to you in respect. Being a father is big job. How do I know that? Because my father raised me, my brother and my sister when our mother walked out.

Saturday Summary: Too much writing, not enough pottery making!

Walker Thornton and Ann Bennett wrote beautiful guest posts this past Wednesday. I greatly enjoyed reading their articles. Each brought a fresh perspective to the act of collecting pottery.

Friday

Painting of Buddy Dog, 2010.Friday! Glorious Friday. I don’t know why I love Friday so much. For almost all of my working life, Friday meant I still had one more day of work to get through. But in the very early years of work, Friday meant the weekend stretched far out in front of me.

John Britt the Potter's Clay Feet

John Britt Oil spot BowlI first ran across John Britt in one of his Youtube videos years ago, back when I began learning how to make pottery. At first I wasn’t too sure I was going to like him. He had an odd sounding voice.

Juggling Jobs, Pots and Blogs

Candle Holder. A little something I made. It is said that if you want to get something done, have it done by a busy person. The theory seems to be that the busy person rises to the challenge and is able to juggle a lot of balls in the air at the same time.

Thankfulness

A difficult week puts all the blessings in my life in sharp relief.
As always, I'm thankful for the love and care of my husband. I'm thankful for good friends who root for my success.

Rough Week

Sometimes it is easy to feel sorry for our selves. You work real hard, you make all kinds of sacrifices, and find the pay out at the end to be, well, kind of dismal. Then there’s an accident in which your good luck elephant gets broken, your hand gets cut up. It would be a good reason to cry in frustration, except for one thing – your friend, the friend who’s helped so much with hopes of your success – has a glass of wine waiting for you. 

I'm lucky to have that kind of friend. So instead of feeling sorry for myself, I think I’ll go collect that drink.
