The Holiday Rush begins...

We've been busy here. Last month brought in lots of piggy bank orders so you know what I have been putting together this week. Jeff is still working on vessel sinks. With Thanksgiving behind us, and no company expected until later this month, I brought the photo set up back out. It resides on the dining table and isn't very attractive. Until we have a bigger place with a spare room for taking photos, I have to deal with it. 


I spent last night photographing work from the last firing. That translates into new pots in my Etsy shop.



In other news... We  bought a new TV! I know that most people have had giant screen televisions forever, but we were not among them. The TV we had was about the size of the cup photograph on the screen in the photo. If there were subtitles on the old set, Jeff and I had to get up from the sofa to get closer to read them. Our roku player (no cable or satellite for us) was 5+ years old and acting wonky. This is a "smart" TV so it eliminated the need to replace the roku. This is our Christmas gift to each other, which means our shopping is pretty much done. It may not be a giant screen by most people's standards, but it's giant to us.

and Sophie was pretty impressed as well!

  1. Giant enough. Ours is 37 inch no cable just what we can grab out of the sky. Suits us fine.

    1. We are fine with streaming content... it's a good thing because there is no other choice for us here!

  2. beautiful pots and Sophie is enjoying it too; is that your etsy shop on the screen ? I need to find out how to get what's on my computer on the screen. I am technically challenged.

  3. Your TV looks plenty big to me! Like Dennis, no cable here, and nothing from the sky either. Just Netflix or library movies now & then.

    1. We couldn't have satellite even if we wanted it... The phone company offered us a package when we moved here, but the technician couldn't locate the satellite through all the trees. It was fine with us, I didn't have cable or satellite in NH either.

  4. Gerry and I got a TV that size last year for our Christmas gift. No cable, just an antenna, Netflix and Hulu. There is so much to watch on just those channels we don't miss cable at all. Except for the CBS Sunday Morning show, I do miss that. Sure is a pretty room your TV is sitting in:-)
