Yesterday was our first pottery show for this year. It wasn't the usual craft fair/show, it was more of an arts and outdoor exhibition show in memory of a wonderful wildlife artist by the name of Ned Smith. Ned Smith was the artist who did many many of the covers of Game News, and Fur, Fish, and Game. He was a fantastic artist and his prints now go for quite a bit of money. Ned Smith was a very fine outdoorsmen that happened to be a wonderful artist who studied, loved, and painted nature.

I also managed to get my "Boo" pennies done...I saw this idea awhile back and I really liked it and it was a simple easy project to get done.
My pictures got a little bright, but I think both of these projects really turned out nicely. I guess I am getting in the fall mood lately too, as well as a lot of you other bloggers out there. Fall is my favorite time of year and doing the plates and the pennies got me really thinking of what else I could make....so there will be more pictures and ideas real soon! Hope you have a great day! Tarrah

After spray painting them black, and then painting the square one mustard, and the tray red, some sanding, adding a homemade easy stencil to the tray, a little more sanding and staining, this is how they turned out........
I really like how they turned out. I already filled the mustard one with cinnamon grungy tags, and have the red one empty on display!

Thought I would share a yummy cookie recipe that we all love at my house and it is so easy....no baking required, just a little bit of time at the stove. This is a great way to get the kids involved...just monitor them at the stove.
No Bake Cookies
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp. cocoa
1 stick butter/margarine (whatever you use)
1/2 c. milk
*Combine these in a pot over the stove and when the mixture begins to boil, boil only for 1 minute and remove from heat. Then add:
1 tsp. vanilla
3 c. quick oats
1/2 c. (or a little bit more) of peanut butter
*Stir that up and drop small rounds onto wax paper to cool and stiffen slightly.
That's it! I hope you enjoy these....let me know how they turn out!

I promise to get pictures up sometime soon of different things I am working on, but I first need to get a background layout for my blog...then good things will follow. If anyone has any great tips on getting a neat primitive/country background for my blog that is FREE, please let me know....I am kind of getting frustrated with not really knowing how to do it or how to navigate myself through my blog page and how to change and manuever things. Patti, from http://porchsittingtime.blogspot.com/ has been terrific in supporting me through this and helping me out....I appreciate it Patti!
Ok...time to get some work done before my computer starts smoking!

Anyway, the intent of this blog is to meet other crafters and friends, and share exciting news, tips, and how tos...I realize I have no pictures up yet, but hope to add all that glamour real soon. Our small pottery business is Indian Trail Pottery, so what better name than The Pottery Barn because we have a small shed/barn that we are using for the pottery.
I hope you come and visit back often...I can't wait to meet all of you!
