Living The Dream - Well almost!
It's a funny thing Living the Dream!
On a good day life couldn't be sweeter.
On a bad day it's easy to loose sight of what we have.
We have had a few of those days recently, so we have been
making a conscious effort to explore the world we live in.
This is our workshop on a sunny Saturday morning.
this is the back view.

We have had some great Frosty mornings and we have taken to
starting the day with a few long walks with Cadbury.

for granted when you see it every day and your life is so busy.
It's nice sometimes to stop and give yourself time to look
and appreciate what we have.

Taking time to watch the leaves falling off the trees
was a special moment.
and then coming across the swing hanging from a tree
was a real treat.
We have been making some pots for the showroom
This 15" dish thrown by Me but decorated by Marion
makes a change from my usual plain slip decoration.
Spending time walking is giving us space to think about next Year
and the changes we will be making,
more on that at a later stage when our Ideas are
But there is light at the end of the tunnel
and at the end of a busy day
We can sit back and relax in our Tiny cottage
