New Pottery Show & Tell

You might not remember, but ages ago I blogged about Shane Norrie's pottery.  It was back in my "early" days of blogging (i.e. embarassingly awkward, completely un-read posts), but he spotted the post and even left a comment!

Even though his work is affordable, we saved our pennies and finally, six months later, bought some pieces of our own.  I picked out two pieces (and my mom gifted us the third) at a gallery in our hometown because the selection is great and the gallery owner offered her invaluable assistance.  It was very difficult to whittle down my selection - I could have bought every piece. 

Although yesterday's unpacking and putting-life-back-in-order project was slow going (I have a cold, and jet lag and went 28 days without cleaning - I think I forgot how), I did manage to unpack and photograph the new pottery pieces.  And that little tiny corner of the house is now orderly and tidy . . . because I shoved everything out of the way so I could snap this photo.  Hey, its progress!



  1. love the color and texture of the pottery and it matches the artwork in the room perfect!
    Hope you feel better soon.
    Trust me, I got home a month ago from traveling and I am still struggling to get my life put back together.
    It just takes time after such a long adventure and change in our lives.
    Good luck

  2. Those pieces are absolutely stunning, and they're perfect for your dining room. I know you must be thrilled to get three at once. Good penny pinching and good mom!

  3. Good for you! There's nothing better than saving up to buy something you really want!

  4. Thanks, Amy. I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels weird being home after being gone for awhile.

  5. Thanks so much! They look amazing with the painting in the background.

  6. Nothing better than some new pottery...especially that of the extremely talented Shane Norrie. Enjoy your pieces!

  7. Thanks for linking to my blog, Shane. I'm so jazzed you like where I have displayed your pieces.

    Lisa: thanks!
