thanks for coming!

We had a wonderful time at the open studio despite the rotten rainy weather. Thanks to all of you who braved the down pour to join us- gosh, it was a week ago now! Time seems to go even faster at this time of the year.

There were lots of treats in the studio last ¬†Saturday…treats for the eyes as well as the taste buds.

I did a little late baking the night before (ginger snaps and oatmeal surprise cookies!) It just doesn’t feel like Christmas to me unless I’m up till the wee hours baking something.

Elizabeth had some of her new pieces available for the first time- these wonderful little owls made their debut!

As did her Pawm Bears…lovely little fellows that nestle right into the palm of your hand. They come in several glazes all lovely but I can never resist raku. This fellow managed to snooze under the poinsettia for most of the day.

There was a horse themed selection…

and of course, Elizabeth’s wonderful word-ware bowls!

We had a great time with lots of ¬†friends dropping by for a cup of mulled cider and a cookie. It was a long “inside” day for the three wise dogs though, and as a reward for almost-good behaviour we went for a long hike the next day…

….and found this little seasonal token tucked into the trees.

 

Hope all your holiday preparations are going to plan.

Bye for now, Catherine
