 Oh my goodness! I can't even express how blessed I am to have this opportunity to own so many wonderful pieces of pottery....Does everyone know Lori Triplett??? She use to blog a few years back...Well, that is how our friendship began...Several years ago, I messaged her to ask if she sold anymore of her pieces if she would let me know...A short time after that she messaged me and asked if I would be interested in swapping x-stitch pieces for her pottery...And that is how it began...We did ship things back and forth, but the last two swaps some of the bigger pieces broke, so she has been planning a trip to visit since last year and then she could just bring them...Well, that happened yesterday! I finally got to meet Lori and her son, Jason....
She is such a sweetheart and soooo pretty!!

The visit was too short and later last night I got to short through some of the pottery... My table started out with a few pieces and then I added more and more as I unpacked...So, as of right now I have two sets of dishes...I have the sponge dishes and then a set of snowman dishes(which i got last year)...It has been so much fun going through them...Can I say happy dance and Christmas in March???!!! 
 I see a big new cabinet in my near future....Hopefully Timmy will take care of that! :)

Holy Smokes! That's a lot of pottery! I have a few pieces of the blue spongeware I am getting rid of, if you feel you need some more I would only charge shipping. Just no more room for it. ;)
I'm loving the lamps!! Just gorgeous! Lori is so generous! I almost got to meet her when we went thru Gettysburg. Our schedules didn't fit. :(
