I’m baaaack… and all the things are happening!

Ohmygosh, you guys, the rest of my vacation in Maine was indescribably wonderful- I got to connect with so many friends I haven’t seen in person in AGES and I got to go to some of my most favorite places that I haven’t visited in AGES.

Truly, it was a wonderful 5 week adventure, I wish every vacation could be as long and as rejuvenating.

Anyway, I’m back now and in my usual form, I’ve hit the ground running(ish)… the jetlag kicked my butt this trip, maybe it’s more truthful to say that I’ve hit the ground jogging… or power walking?

Anyway, This coming week brings two REALLY fun things that I wanted to share with you.

First, remember in my last post I told you about a mug joining me on my Maine adventures and that I’d be giving it away when I returned to Scotland??? Well, giveaway time is here!

Mug at Schoodic Point in Bar Harbor, Maine… this seagull hung out with us for 15 minutes!

All you have to do to enter the giveaway is visit one or both of these posts on Instagram or Facebook and join the fun. Good luck!

The second thing happening this week is “A Winter Warmer” opens, woot! This exhibition will include pottery by moi, creative baking by Liz of Litty’s Larder, glass work by Mary Frith and mixed media work by Carol Duff.

All of this artwork will be complimented by warm cups of mulled wine, tea or coffee and comfy woodstove fires to warm the cockles. If you’re local please do pop in and say hello, it would be so wonderful to see you!

Here are the details:

That’s it for now. See you soon!


Win Free Goodies!

You know what’s neat?

When two business women have an idea and then it happens, I just love that!

My friend Erica is the owner & founder of the amazing Eteaket – the very finest place in Edinburgh (online too!) for high quality loose leaf tea with integrity. She and I had a conversation one day about wanting to give some fun things away to celebrate summer and after about 5 minutes of conversation we came up with the “Tea for Two Giveaway”.

Included in the giveaway are 2 of my favorite “Waveware Mugs”, 4 delicious loose leaf summer teas (shown in the photo, you can drink them hot or cold) and enough bleach-free teabags to last the entire summer.

If you want a chance to win, click here to enter the giveaway. One entry per person, but if you’re on Facebook or Instagram you can get an extra entry by sharing our giveaway posts in your stories.

The giveaway ends at 5pm (BST) on Saturday, July 27th and is open to pottery & tea lovers all over the world. Erica and I will share the cost of sending the booty to you when you win.

Good luck!!
