Finishing Touches !

We are rushing around like chickens with their heads .....
no, no, wait!

Not so appropriate for our
2009 Yuletide Celebration
Holiday Market in the Barn

with the theme "All Creatures Great & Small" !!!

Let's just say we are busy bees at The Farm.

Wreaths are hung, and tree trimmings are on display.
The goal is to provide a warm and festive setting
for the wares of our Artisans and Antiques Dealers,
all perfect and wonderful,
remarkable and staggering,

meritorious and commendable, and ....swell!

It's this Saturday!

Now where did I put the snow goose with
the little Christmas greens in his mouth . . .

Bee Tree Pottery

We are profiling
Bee Tree Pottery today.

Tom's wonderful cabin studio in southern Indiana
brims with his redware pottery.
To visit is a gift in itself, as Tom and Ruth welcome guests
to their "heritage" farm, passed through Ruth's family.
As the recipient of one of Tom's beautiful platters, I can confirm that
his work makes a statement in my home.
I am so proud to know both Tom and Ruth
and to have such fine craftsmanship at our show
is truly a blessing.

A recent email from Tom says . . .
" I have created a special 16 inch platter based on Genesis,
the fifth day of Creation;
when creatures swarm from the seas and birds fill the heavens.
It is a redware platter, 18th century style,
with sgraffito, feathering and marbeling decoration.
It will be 'borned' to the world this Thursday, just in time
for the 'All Creatures Great and Small'
Yuletide Celebration."
