Dedham Pottery Give Away


Blogging was just a word that I heard people say, but had never really experienced myself.  That is until one afternoon in late June when I happened to google something and I came upon what I now know as a blog.  How interesting this person's life was,  how delicious her recipes looked and how clever her craft ideas seemed to be. Well one blog led to another and another and so the story goes.

It took me all summer long to get up enough courage to create From Beyond My Kitchen Window.  I'm still not sure if my blog is as clever or as tastefully assembled as some others, but I have enjoyed every minute of trying to make my blog a reflection of who I am , what I enjoy cooking and where I like to go on a Saturday afternoon.

Thank you to all the wonderful people who share their amazing ideas and lives through their blogs.  Blogging is a great vehicle to meet caring, kind, giving and supportive individuals who for an hour or two a week through their computers invite you into their lives.  So this give away is just a small token of gratitude for all of the kind comments and supportive words  you have written on my blog.

A few weekends ago a friend and I went to the Potting Shed to buy a thank you gift for the give away.  Dedham Pottery is something I have loved for over twenty-five years. Each piece is hand made and takes about a week to finish.  I hope that whoever is lucky enough to win the flower vase will enjoy it as much as I do.  To read about the history of Dedham Pottery go here.www.harelooms.com

If you are already a follower your name will be entered in the drawing twice. If you are not yet a follower but  would like a chance just to win, you can join and your name will be be entered once. The drawing will take place next weekend. Good Luck and Thank You!!!

  1. Wow, what a great give away! I know that feeling exactly. I had no exposure to blogging until I became obsessed with the movie Julie and Julia. I went to see it over 6 times. I started in January, but due to a overwhelmed schedule over the summer I had to take some long breaks. I'm really just getting moving now. I too am so grateful to have found such a Fabulous group of people ~ Blessings indeed!

  6. What a beautiful vase ! Isn't blogworld full of lovely people! I started my blog tentatively about a year ago ...and dipped in and out. But when I became ill I was suddenly surrounded by so many uplifting messages I realised how powerful blogging is. I'm still truly amazed that people will give up their time to write such lovely things to support someone they will probably never meet.... you make so many new friends!
    Love Kathy xxx
