And the winner is ....

So ... into youngest son's hat you all went, and the two names he pulled out were . . .

Joan Hunter Dunn, and, The Mad House. Congratulations!

Please email me at with your address
and I'll get your snowflake off to you tomorrow.

Looking out of the window, we are now getting our second load of snow, as promised. The older two are home from University this weekend so ...

time for pottery to finish and Christmas to start (once their washing's been done!).
In case you're wondering, those little stockings in that picture are for big cheques.

And, yes, that is the weird snowflake youngest son made
- much rarer than any of mine!

So, its feet up by the blazing woodburner in the candle-lit lounge for me ....

and a very Happy Christmas and Merry New Year to all of you!
See you soon.


  1. Ooh, very Christmassy, I love your tree and decorations, and the snowflakes are fab. Looks like I missed entering the giveaway by a whisker! Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year too! :) Sarah

  2. They bring their washing home! Of course they do. It's about to start for me next year - son off to Uni.
    Like the little stockings for big cheques. Great idea!
    Thanks for stopping by. xx

  3. oooh lucky lucky me - thank you so much, and thank you Youngest Son for picking my name out of the hat....
    Off to email you right now.

  4. Hi. Thanks for visiting my blog and taking time to comment. You have a really interesting place here - and I love, love, love your ceramics! Hope you have a very lovely Christmas. :)

  5. Hello and thank you so much for leaving a lovely comment on my blog. I have visited yours before and loved your pottery with the use of fabric, both being my favourite things to own and enjoy. We are a bit nervous about Xmas and how we will all cope when we are together but I am sure we will be sharing our wonderful memories of Dad as himself and as a Grandad and laughing and more than likely shedding some tears. When I am off over Xmas I am going to add lots of people I have written down to the side of it. Have a lovely time and a rest.

  6. Have a fantastic Christmas, and thank you for visiting and commenting on my blog....we have had a pottery on the farm for years, however our potters, my brothers in law, have both now left the island, so we have just opened a ceramic wishes,

  7. I do love your beautiful work, the stars & hearts are wonderful. Thank you for visiting my 5 blog, it is a lovely feeling isn't it that satisfied glow. Merry Christmas to you and yours, enjoy. ruthie

  8. Have a wonderful Christmas and New year.

    Happy Christmas.
