Holidays are about over for most and I am still open most days on Route 15 (also called Defiance Street ) just past the Golden Arches of McDonalds...where 15 leaves 65 and follows the Old Mill Stream. Look for my open sign by 15 and drop in to see what is going on...

This is a collection of Virginia Romero's pottery with the watercolor I painted in 1978. I have just read that 3 years ago the governor of New Mexico put up an historic roadside marker right outside her Taos Pueblo, commemorating her as a major force for the traditional pottery of the Southwest. She is a daughter and potter of Taos, NM, and died in 1998. She was born in 1895 and learned at a very young age from her grandmother to make this traditional Southwest pottery. I got to know her in 1975 and I would always visit her and buy her pottery .On her one hundredth birthday I gave her a watercolor painting I did of her and her little dog ,Poco. I have parents of that painting in the shop for sale. Come by and visit the Southwest here in Ottawa Ohio.

This is a nice close up of a Mesa Verde mug which I just acquired for my collection. It belong to my dear friend Gene Lang of Denver Colorado and it is amazing here from this view. No restoration on this mug it does have two big black fire clouds on the backside. Gene is my dear friend who got me interested in collecting this prehistoric Indian pottery. This piece would date from 1100 to 1200 A.D. It would come from the four corners area around Mesa Verde .

this is the ever beautiful quince bush and I am seeing Baltimore Orioles on it this year. It has been a while since I've seen them. I'm sure they can come and go without me ever seeing them feed on the nectar.

This is an old Shaker style teaching desk or standing desk made of knotty pine and beautifully crafted in the early half of the 19th century . This could be an actual Shaker piece from Southern Ohio or Kentucky. Come see it; it is amazingly light weight so I can easily be moved around the classroom or taken on tours.

Today is the Epiphany in many countries. Some celebrated yesterday. I'm going to see today is the end of the holiday season. This nativity is designed by an Italian (Tommasi) who is world famous for his nativities. He just designed one for a famous Church in Oslo last year. This set is new and signed and it was made several years ago by Tommasi. Come see it and hear the story about it. He uses the age old combination of paper and terracotta.
