Show and Sale Before and After

I know I know, I’ve been such a bad blogger lately.  I’ll use the pottery show and sale as my excuse for not posting lately.  We had a very successful show and now that it’s over, maybe I can focus on some craft projects I’ve been putting off.

And yes, I have some soap dishes set aside to sell online. 

Anyway, I thought it would be fun to see what goes on during the show and sale preparation.  Most of the potters get a shelf like this to display their wares.  This is what mine looked like before.

And here’s what it looks like after 3  hours.  I didn’t have a lot of pieces so my shelf was pretty simple.  Check out the festive greens on top of my shelf.  I got them from a neighbor’s trash!!

Fried turkey from a Chinese restaurant?

Thanksgiving dinner by you.

Did you know you can get a fried turkey from some Chinese restaurants?  Yup, that’s what we had for Thanksgiving.  The dark thing right above the turkey slight to the left is actually a lily pad wrapped duck filled with a sticky rice stuffing.  Now that was yummy!

And what’s Thanksgiving without a little Thanksgiving traffic?  This is a shot of the Tappan Zee Bridge.
