So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Good-bye!

I just returned from a misty-eyed parting with our dear friends from across the big pond. Kevin Crowe kindly provided a wonderful meeting place and warm hospitality for the hand-off. The ol' slipware couple and Ang are in the capable hands of Ron Philbeck now, making their way to the heart of North Carolina clay country. I am completely shattered and happy to be back home with Miss Moneypenny and the aftermath! It'll take me the rest of the week to fill you in on our fantastic week. It should be no surprise that Doug and Hannah completely charmed and inspired all of us who were lucky enough to be with them this week!
Lunch on the porch!
In Kevin's studio, full to the roof with pots awaiting the fire.
Love those t-shirts!

Dan it really was fantastic. Thanks so much for putting it all together!

Not easy to see those two leave, is it? We'll just have to go visit some days soon.

Dan- I know you hated to let this crew go. Time just flies when you are with people you love!
The girls are nestled in bed and today we tour Seagrove studios.
I am thrilled to have the group here.
We had a eat and great last night.

Pat Finnegan said...

At least you have our visit to look forward to!

Looks like you had a great time! Bet it was a great week, I've always wanted to find out more about slipware.

Gawd bless you. We should have kidnapped you and brought you with us Dan. Thanks so much, I can't tell you how much I enjoyed my stay in Virginia.
Love to you and Ellie and Emily and all the other wonderful folks.

Whooops that was me not Doug but he says the same thing anyway.
