I am very excited about what we have prepared for the folks who will be coming to our home. I have a nice selection of work available, perhaps the largest assembled display in one place at any time. Plates, crocks, bowls, pie bakers, large serving bowls, soup mugs, small coffee cups, large coffee cups, goblets, large vases and of course a variety of 2nd quality work and old stock that simply needs to find a good home now and will be priced to go.
Rowan has prepared some delicious foods, several varieties of cookie, all above and beyond the average cookie. She's making chocolate bark with cinnamon, chipoltle, cayenne and ancho pepper. Very much like the "chocolate crack" she made for the Erie wedding...when people were snatching chunks of the chocolate off of the devils food wedding-cupcakes. For those of you who have not experienced the magical combination of pepper and chocolate..it is amazing... it's like hot chocolate without the hot liquid..a gentle, soothing warmth, the best of comfort, cozy and food in a small confection. It'll be just the thing to nibble on in front of our stone hearth fireplace. If chocolate doesn't do it for you, we'll also have carrot ginger soup and fresh baked artisan bread with a variety of toppings including jams, jellies, butter and honeybutter.
