Good golly miss molly, it’s hard to believe that it’s been THREE years since I started this little blog! It has been so much fun! And I cherish all of the blogging friends I have made along the way. Thank you for cheering me on!
I don’t have that enormous dolly or original left knee anymore, but my smile remains the same. (OK, I’ll admit that the smile doesn’t usually appear until after my arthritis medicine, Tylenol, and morning coffee have kicked in.) I didn’t have many treasures in my hard scrabbled childhood years, but that just made them all the more special. I remember being so proud of that dolly, and you can clearly see it on my face! Cherished items bring an extra joy to your heart, don’t they?
In celebration of my 3-year anniversary, I have a special treasure to give away to a lucky blogging friend: a handmade pottery mug! The blue, grey, and brown colors dance on this gorgeous work of folk art. With its attractive shape, textured skirt, and generous handle, you will look forward to filling it up each morning with your favorite hot beverage!
This mug was made by David and Deborah Garner of Turn & Burn Pottery in Seagrove, North Carolina. We had a great visit with David during our early December trip, and we could have spent all day talking with him! We made a special stop at this particular studio because David specializes in creating horsehair raku pottery. It was a hard decision to pick out which pieces in their showroom to take home with us. We wish we could have adopted them all! But we finally selected a horsehair raku vase for each of us, and I chose a traditional stoneware mug for this giveaway.
Each work of art by the Garner’s has a bible reference noted on the bottom and a smiling Christian fish symbol. The mug’s inscription is John 14:1.
