Barn Sale, pics from the Iredell show, and such

Saturday was the Barn Sale, held out at McAlpine Business Park on Monroe Rd. This was the first time in 2 years that I was able to participate in this show because I've been out of town the past 3 shows: twice missed in the spring for being in Minnesota helping some potter friends for their show and once missed for being in Berlin for a Christian artist conference (it was incredible and traveling to mainland Europe for the first time was quite an experience!). So, needless to say, it was good to be back! The show has a very laid-back setting and it's often a place where I see friends that I haven't seen for a while.
Here's a picture of my booth as I'm just about to finish setting up in the morning. It was a little chilly, but I happily welcome this fall weather. The best part of the show was having fun neighbors- all the the potters in our circle of eight group were together and I was next to Jen Mecca and Barbara Chadwick- both whom make great work. It's always great to be in good company (of work and people!). At the end of the day Brian and my good friend Carrie came to help me load up the car- I'm so thankful to have people that care for me well!

My friend Julie (who's also a potter and you'll see her later in this post....) took some pictures at my show that opened a month ago at Iredell County Museums in Statesville. Here are a few pieces from that show:

Hi Mom! (check out those pink pants!)

As the "such" part of this post, earlier today I received an email with links to an online photo album from my crazy friend Julie (with her dog formerly known as Sagovia, but now known as Miss Princess):
Julie's sister had a costume birthday party for their dogs; while I wasn't at the party, I can still appreciate the goofy hilarity of dressing animals up. Here's some more:

Okay I'm going to keep leaving comments here until you make a new post.
Thanks for the help with my slab building question yesterday. I'm such a pottery nerd.

Hi Amy, Enjoyed the wonderful photos!! Those pink pants are great but don't hold a candle to the pants you've borrowed in the past from your grandpa! ;-)
Looking forward to the opening of you website!
Love, Yo Mama :-) X O X O
