Norfolk Christmas Tour this Weekend

Well, it doesn't feel like it here in Japan, but Christmas is right around the corner!! Hopefully you're all getting a head start on your holiday list, but if you haven't, don't worry, we've got you covered. This weekend is the 3rd annual "Put a little Norfolk under your Tree" studio tour, featuring some of the best local artists in the Norfolk area. My father and sister April are busy getting ready, so if you have some time, please stop in this weekend and say hello. We'll also have some hot apple cider and goodies to share. This is our last big event of the season, so we hope you can drop in and see what we've been up to!

We've survived!! Two days at least . . .

And so, after the weeks of working, trimming, bisquing, waxing, glazing, firing, cleaning, pricing, packing, driving and setting up, we've survived 2 days of the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition, and are in the home stretch. We've had a wonderful time meeting new customers and seeing some familiar faces, some customers who have been buying my fathers work since he first did the show, back in the 80's!!! Knowing that there are people who still cherish and love my fathers work really makes him proud and this whole ordeal worthwhile.

Here are some pictures of my work being set up and displayed, you'll notice the scapes, berries and strawberries from the garden in case I get hungry :)

 

If you have time, come on by tomorrow on our final day, we're at booths H13 and H15. A lot of our prized work has sold, my fathers large teapots are almost gone, and I even found a wonderful home for my beach elephant bowl (the one with the blue water), but we do have a lot of other work we are proud of, and would just love to catch up :) The end is in sight, I can't wait to sleep in and catch up on all the rest I've been missing :) Hoping everyone who saw the show had a wonderful time, thank you
