Tip a Sip for Kenny

Last month I wrote a little about finding our new home in lovely Hunter River. Although plenty of our things remain as is, in their cardboard box homes, we are slowly settling in. I take a deep breath so as not to let the list of important tasks overwhelm me! We have big plans over here at 19795 Route 2… a basement studio among other highlights. These wait in queue. In the soonest meantime I'll have my wheel in the front porch (Pottery Porch) with a nice display or two. 

Ah, my poor kiln suffered an injury, a broken coil, which isn't so bad considering the bottom of the big beast fell on the driveway between our feet at the end of our move. Needless to say I'm not yet into mud or production just yet!

oh my! Well how about the draw? As always, if you want a chance to win you need only to sign up for my monthly updates.

One of my personal hero's passed away a few days ago. I knew him as my stepdad but he was a lot of things for a lot of people. Truly a kind person- showing up when he's needed, knows who your parents and their parents are, and so very giving. Kenny told stories and sang songs, tickled children and dogs. He was also a great friend to both my parents, even married one of them.

This past Christmas he bought a mug for my Mom, just so he could get his one back from her. He’s just that kind of a good guy. He always had a pot of coffee on. So before you watch the video, git a mug ready and have a sip in honour of Kenny Francis Murphy.

I continue to be pleasantly surprised when it comes to draw results! This month's winner, may be well known to many of you out in the world. She’s an artist and potter who makes beautiful and often both cute and funny creations. She has a booth at the Charlottetown Farmer's Market and is a regular at the Victoria Park Potter's Co-op!

Congrats to you dear friend and I'll contact you this week!

Stay Cozy, Ryan
