honey pot season

Can you believe it's Thursday already? The week's been a whirlwind. We are full in the throws of spring in Memphis- azaleas are blooming, the spring wildflowers are cropping up in everyone's lawn, bees are flitting around the neighborhood gathering pollen- Which brings me to our title. Honeypots. Right now I'm all honeypots all the time. And berry bowls. And tiny vases, and herb markers. Really, I'm all pottery all the time. I am eating, sleeping, breathing pottery. And ditigal cameras, because I'm looking to upgrade from my point and shoot to a digital SLR. I have my eye on a Nikon d70. But alas, that is not pottery, not a honeypot, not the subject of this post. . . .

Sometime today or tomorrow my good friend Molly will be giving away one of my honeypots. This honeypot, actually. She is responsible for my venture into etsy, blogging, and the successful sales year I had last year. She is also responsible for what I call the year of the berry bowl. A little later (again, today or tomorrow), I'll have 3-4 honeypots in my shop with more to come. No berry bowls yet, but they're coming. I'm stocking up for the farmers market, the shop, and my annual summer sale. Busy, busy time.

I won't be back in this space until next week- have a wonderful Easter weekend, beautiful Passover, lovely spring. Enjoy this time of renewal, friends.

I've just been introduced to your blog and gorgeous shop via mollycoddle. So beautiful! I'm going to keep my eye on your shop for berry bowls too.(Oh, no pressure!)

Yay! If I don't win MommyCoddle's I will definitely be contacting you to make another little bee pot for moi'. I'm also going to have to go and see what the whole "berry pot" is.

Your work is lovely. Very talented, you are. (I occasionally talk in Yoda, thanks to my kids.) =)

Love the honey pot. Perfect for my tea in the morning. Might have to come back to shop if I don't win!
