The Florida shop is cleaned out, most of our house work is completed, and we just got word that we were accepted into three fall shows.
The shop looks great, the power is off, and we've been finishing up work on the house. Painting completed - check; lawn cut short - check; trees trimmed - check; round up sprayed - check; bug spray complete - check; and on and on and on.
So, we decided not to put our house here on the market. The more we started fixing it up, the more we started thinking that we didn't need to be in such a hurry to get rid of it. Our plan is to head west for fall and winter shows, and then we're going to be coming back to Florida after December and do art shows in Florida with Mackie's clay work. I'm really excited about this. She has an incredible technique with clay that no one has seen in the southeast.
Today we were accepted into the Mountain View Art and Wine Festival and the Los Altos Art and Wine Festival, and we're waiting to hear on three others. Additionally, Mackie has scheduled the Holiday Food and Gift Festival in Tacoma to display her pottery. We're both really excited about the future and looking forward to seeing you at our upcoming shows!
