Ok so once a year I post about something other than pottery… and that would be about baseball. I have two sons who are baseball players so I get pretty busy this time of year being a baseball mom. Pottery making hours dip a little these couple of months.
This season has been particularly busy as my oldest son Luke’s varsity team at Greenfield high school won the Hampshire league championship, then went to the playoffs for Western Massachusetts… winning the quarter finals, semi finals and then the finals today! They were all great playoff games. Todays game was played at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst… which btw is the university that Luke is attending this fall.
They now go on to the semi finals for state champs against Central Mass on Tuesday, hopefully winning that, to play the winner of Eastern Mass. for the State Championship.
My other son Andrew (a freshman) was called up from the JV team for the playoffs to gain some experience and to warm the bench. It is nice that he got the chance to be on the same team as his brother. When Luke got the team on the board with a deep RBI to left center, he was there to greet him!

I can show you a photo… but I wish I could somehow fill your sense of smell with the sweet scent of lilacs that permeate my studio entrance. The weather this spring must be perfect for lilacs here in Massachusetts, because everywhere I see lilac bushes they have abundant blooms!
I have made some signs for my entrance, finally. One for the gate, so that you know it’s the studio, and not to come knocking at the house entrance. The other is just a welcome sign at the door. I made these just before the Asparagus Valley Pottery Trail a couple of weeks ago. I thought people might like the welcome sign, so made an extra which sold on the trail, (also had an order for one). Yesterday I made one for the order… and some extra just in case, maybe I’ll put them up on etsy!
Then of course… my studio entrance is not complete without my studio dogs!
