March Giveaway!

We're having so much fun with our giveaways, we decided to continue into March. So far you've seen earrings and coasters, so it was time for a bowl. This beautiful porcelain bowl is glazed in rich blue and just a hint of ash along the rim. The bright white porcelain clay allows the bright blue to pop. It's a versatile size and could be used as a small serving piece, a simple home decor item with potpourri or small fruit, a great catch all for keys or loose change, or as the base for a floral arrangement. (6 inches wide and 3 inches deep)






Here's a great example of using pottery in an arrangement.
Ready to enter? Hop on over to the shop and tell us about your favorite kind of pottery. If you've purchased from us before, think about what drew you in. If you haven't, think about something you like in our shop. What type of pottery is it? Do you prefer functional pottery like serving bowls and plates with a specific purpose? Does it help if you can imagine it in your own home and know exactly how you'll use it, like coasters or trivets? Or do you prefer to splurge on something unique like our jewelry that is more indulgent and less functional? Functional or fun? Abstract or purposeful? You tell us.

Leave a comment on this post telling us what you think and an email address or link to your blog. We'll pick a winner in a week on Sunday, March 22, so enter now for your chance to win this bowl....
(Note: If you've noticed all of my personal comments, we've opened this up to friends and family who email me an entry.....not everyone is as blog savvy as our faithful blog readers : )

Get a second chance to win if you post a link to our shop and giveaway on your blog. Just leave a second comment letting us know and we'll enter your name twice!


Only available for shipment within the U.S. You must leave a way for us to contact you in order to win. Once notified of winning, you have one week to provide a shipping address or we'll pick another winner. Good luck!

I would love to be entered for the March bowl giveaway---hope this is the pathway to enter!I was born a bowl-lover. "You can never have too many bowls" is a frequent phrase in our home. In particular I love your green shades, but I look at all colors as I often give them as gifts.
Hope I win!

What a beautiful bowl! Very "spring" - almost a robin's egg blue. I love the uniqueness of your work in that there is definitely something for everyone. The variety of colors and styles make it easy to find something you love!

I would say I'm more of a functional type of person in the pottery category. Love jewelry, but more traditional gold and silver. I love the new Spring Greens, the bowls in deep red hues are really beautiful. If it's something I would love to own, I know my gift recipient will love it too.

Awesome bowl! Reminds me of spring and with all the rain we've had, I sure do need it! What draws me in and keeps me coming back are the colors and the jewelry and of course my friend Jeanette!

I love the unique jewelry and really cute home items. My favorite item so far are the christmas ornaments I bought. Artsy and fun.

Love, love, love the color of that bowl!! I think it would look just lovely in Brianna's room with some flowers. :) I would have to say that the colors of your pottery keep me coming back.

I think all the pottery in the shop is exceptional, including this new bowl. I do love the jewelry, especially the crosses and hope you keep all the selections coming. It's such fun to check often on what's new in the shop!

I guess I’m not too computer savvy. I still don’t see where to click to make a comment.
I really like your creations. The fluted shell dish and the lacy things are really neat.

I love all your bowls, especially blue or red ones. I bought 5 to use as Christmas presents and everyone loved them and wanted to know where I got them. Please enter me in the March bowl giveaway.
Thanks.

Don't enter me in the contest, but I enjoy the reading even more than the 'stuff!'

Jill and Jeanette,this is amazing! I always knew Jill was an artist, but she has truly outdone herself. It sure is good I chose to shop while Roger was sleeping!! As you can tell from my order, I love the color blue...
