I Went To The Fair.....

......The League of New Hampshire Craftsmen Fair......and there I met  Michele.  It was so much fun meeting a fellow blogger.  We had so much to talk about that I went back again and hung around while she was doing a throwing demo at New Hampshire Potters Guild tent.  It would be so much fun if more of us could get together.....potters talk dirt!

I had to buy this mug from her partner in crime Jeff Brown.  I should have a photo of the shirt I was wearing yesterday when I was drinking morning tea from it  (the mug, not the shirt).  It's almost the same green.  It's not only a delight to the eye but pleasant to hold and use.  It's definitely a keeper!

I also bought a mug by Rob Cartelli.  His work is new to me.  I love the simple elegance of his designs.

And I bought another mug by Eleanora Eden.  I have mugs of hers with a black background.  This is the first I have seen the iris and the light background.

When I got home to R.I. I went through some of my boxes of mugs that I have not unpacked since selling my other house.  And LOOK WHAT I FOUND!  This is one of Jeff's mugs dated '99.  Gosh, do you think I like his greens?

This is from an early visit to the fair.  Always fun, anyone in the area should go.

This post can also be found on Mud Colony and Artists in Blogland.  Drop in for a visit.  There are interesting posts on both sites.

Have a good week always, thanks for stopping by...........*s*
