400th Post = Competetion Time
Ok This is My 400th Post on the Blog.
I feel it should be marked in some way.
So I've decided to give this jug away to one person.
To enter all you have to do is leave a comment on this post.
I will then write all the names on a piece of paper and put them in a hat
and ask Marion to pull one piece of paper out of the hat.
who ever gets pulled out gets the jug.
It's a small half pint jug.
with white slip trailing over a black slip.
It has it's imperfections, but don't we all !
It has two marks on it,
one is where I caught it with my fingers when I knocked it off the shelf
when I went to pick it up to slip it.
and the indent you can see above is where I caught against the shelf below
and thus was able to save it.
To me this type of pot is everything a slipware pot should be.
So I hope you will enter into the spirit of things and leave a comment.
Especially all of you who read the blog but never leave a comment.
I'll do the draw on Friday 10th September.
