A Little Spring and McCarty Pottery

 I am finally doing a little Spring decorating and I wanted to share one of my favorite pottery pieces with you. My bowl with the bashful bunny lid.

 I few years ago I traveled with my husband on business to Mississippi.  A couple we know there took us to a wonderful little pottery shop in the tiny town of Marigold, Mississippi. It is owned by  Lee and Pup McCarty, a couple that started the shop back in 1954, unfortunately Pup passed away in 2009. It is a small shop that is housed in an unglamorous barn like building, but they have some amazing pottery. Their work has won many awards and been displayed in galleries around the world. It is like a hidden jewel!  When we were there I fell in love with the bunny bowl and he came home with me.

Most pieces of McCarty pottery have a black wavy line somewhere on the piece that represents the Mississippi river.

Many of their pieces depict animals, bunnies, birds, and frogs are favorites.

I think he is just the sweetest little guy!

I also thought I would share a couple of  recent GW finds.

I found a box of beautiful eggs.


I love the combination of colors with the soft turquoise.

I also found this bird candle holder that makes the perfect perch for one of my nests.

Looks like the birds are guarding their eggs.

It feels good to finally welcome Spring!
