miss marley said to take a break

My little shadow follows me where ever I go! Can you see her there? I'm never alone! We've been doing a bit of vacationing but are home today, I'll be back to blogging next week with some news and a few events for the fall. For now, we're going to resume our break, there is too much ball playing to be done to work! That's Miss Marley, she caught me working on our break.
Have a safe and happy Labor Day weekend!

platters - check!

Good week to you internet! Just 2 more weeks of summer, well for those who end summer on labor day! I've been a busy little potter the past few weeks and now the fruit of that labor needs to be formated, written about, and put in the Little Flower Shop for all to see, and buy! A girl can hope, right?! I do have the platter page up an running, I changed things up a bit and decided to do individual item pages again. The multi item pages just didn't highlight the work well enough. Next up will be bowls and tea cups and if I have time today, vases!! In the studio it's all about plates. I tweaked the design of the plates and new samples had to be made. And hooray, I also tweaked the round platter design and it worked out very well so they will be available again in the coming weeks. Did I ever mention how slow ceramics can be? That's why we all have longer turn around times than other crafts.

Since it's summer and I'm finally done with shows I've taken some time on the weekends to visit with family and enjoy the weather. And much more of that is coming so my postings might be a little more sporadic than usual. We have lots of visiting to do and some nice summery day trips planned to the beach, the mountains, also movies, miniature golf, picnics, well, you know the kinds of things that make summer special! And if I can convince the Mr. some bike riding will happen!!

Be sure to get out there and enjoy summer, fall will be here to snuggle with soon enough!
xoxo, Linda

scoutie girl!

I've been so quiet here in my corner of the internet, that's not to say I don't have anything going on! In fact, I am quite the busy little lady these days, trying to stay focused on the studio and spiffing up my other internet corner, Little Flower Designs, the website! But the reason I'm popping in is to say Thank You to Lisa over at Milkshake Crafts, maker of fabulous paper goods, for featuring Little Flower Designs on her Wednesday guest blog on Scoutie Girl. Thank you Lisa! And if you don't know about Scoutie Girl, it's a great blog filled with all sorts of great indie designer finds. Be sure to check out both Scoutie Girl and Milkshake Crafts! Happy clicking!

thinking of cooler temps!

I just bought new boots for fall and winter, a nice warm pair to wear with everything! This has me thinking about the holidays and a nice little gift I make, the Table Lovelies. I can often be heard saying "thank god for table lovelies" after each show and when any holiday is coming up! They make such a sweet gift and are so handy, you'll certainly need a set for yourself. We use one every morning by our coffee make so we can share a spoon to stir and keep the counter clean! They are so lovely on the table (hence the name) and give you and your guest's a place to put tea bags, spoons or really any utensil. A knife rest maybe! I sell them in sets of 4 in nice little gift boxes, all cute and gift ready!

I just update my site with the new color - sunshine! It is to replace the old orange I was using, I'm so happy with the new color and how it fits in with the poppy, lilac and turquoise. If you'd like a set, you can order them here on my site. And if you type "blog" in the comments at check out, I'll send you an orange lovely as a bonus - so you'll get 5 lovelies for the price of 4!

Have a very happy weekend, do something summery! It's going by so quickly.
xoxo, Linda
