The other day when we were doing a bit of a walk-about in our hometown, we visited the farmers' market. Nowadays, it's a very happenin' spot. In addition to the local farmers with their fresh produce, there are local artisans ... craftspeople, jewelry makers, etc. One of the stands that caught our eye was The Community Living Association. We don't know if this is just a regional association or if they're everywhere. Here, they help people living with intellectual disabilities. They had some lovely pottery pieces for sale and we got to talk with some of the people who had made them. This one caught our eye:
So bright and cheerful with the snowmen stamped onto its surface. It's a smallish size ... maybe 5 inches x 7 inches ... and glazed with a mottled pink. One of its charms is that it's not perfect. Nothing's perfect, after all, but someone cared enough to make it with her own hands and we love it!
Just right to hold these cookies, don't you think? No time (or need) for icing this time around. We rolled our favourite Brown Sugar Oatmeal Shortbread cookies extra thin and sandwiched them together with date filling. Mmmmmmmm......!
