Unless you've been reading my blog for awhile, you may not know that I am a suppressed potter. Over the past five years, I've tried to figure out ways to make my love of pottery fit into my life. For awhile, I had a healthy little supply of buttons and chunky stoneware pendants that I was putting up in my etsy shop and I loved it. Creating things with clay was so relaxing and inspiring.
But sometimes life forces us to set some things aside for others, and for now pottery is on the back burner. But someday, I'm going to rejuvenate that hobby and get back to it. I really am.
Last spring I said to her that I desperately needed a little one-serving size colander for washing berries and she went to work creating the perfect thing–and then the berry bowl craze began. Really, I'm not sure how I could manage to live without one. Mine doesn't even make it back into the cupboard, but just sits happily on the windowsill above my kitchen sink.
But one of my other favorites of Melissa's creations are her honey pots. Some day I'll tell you my life lessons learned over a broken honey pot, but in the meantime let's just say that Melissa's honey pot is the cutest thing on my kitchen table.
Plastic honey bear's are so last year.
And lucky for you, Melissa is giving away a honey pot to one of you! The honey pot she's set aside looks a lot like the one I have–a buttery yellow with her signature bee stamped on the side. And it even includes the wooden honey dipper. My children have finally mastered the honey dipper "twirl" to get the honey from the pot to the toast without dripping.
And if you just can't stand to play the odds, she's got a few honey pots in her shop right now. And the berry bowl craze will begin again in May or June.
Leave a comment on this post if you'd like to be entered to win Melissa's honey pot. I will pick a random winner and announce on Monday.
Happy Weekend, friends.
