Since it was a holiday weekend I had not really intended to do any work. I had plans to enjoy friends, enjoy a book and do some house cleaning (fun). But I received two messages on my voicemail that changed those plans a little bit. A woman called me from Charis Books & More where she had seen a set of goblets I have there and wanted to know if I had some mugs with the same glaze. About an hour later I got a call from At The Collective, the same two women were there, they found a mug that they liked but wanted to know if it was part of a set. Clearly they like my pottery.
I contacted the women and was told that they had friends in Alabama who had lost their house and everything in it to a fire. They had lived in the house for about 25 years, maybe you can imagine the loss they must have been feeling. But they seem to have good friends who were interested in making them a care package that consisted of some hand made pottery. The fire victims enjoy drinking tea so a couple of nice mugs and a teabag coaster seemed like a nice gift that would help them find some pleasure. They also found a nice serving bowl to go into the care package and I threw in a small berry bowl that had a complementary glaze to the pieces that were purchased.
As much as I feel bad for the people that lost everything in the fire I know they will be okay because they have such caring friends.
