In this post I talked about going to the Gathering at the Garst, a reenactment event that was staged in the town I grew up near. There were quit a number of vendors set up selling their wares and we had a grand time browsing. My girls had all taken their own money along and were determined to spend it, but, mean Mom that I am, I convinced them to save their money instead of spending it just to be spending it. I do have one vendor in particular that I wanted to highlight. She happens to be the wife of one of my old bosses.
Meet Loretta Wray and her fun pottery!
She is lots of fun – she and her husband were more like friends to me than my boss and his wife! It was really fun to see her again. Seeing her name on the list of vendors was one thing that motivated me to get out of bed early on a Saturday and get all 3 girls ready for an outing 🙂
She makes some fun pottery. The pot to the left of this photo was labeled a ‘houseplant for brown thumbs’. I thought it was rather clever! I tend to be a brown thumb when it comes to house plants.
How cute is this cheese and cracker tray?! I like how you can put the flowers in the flower frog and I also thought the flower frog would be a cute place to put a tag telling your guests what kind of cheese you are serving.
I liked this display with the sticks and rocks too. This could be worked into any decor scheme I think 🙂
