Early fall on the pumpkin farm

Who could possibly live in an acorn? A gnat for one. Imagine how tiny it's bed would be. It's cup and spoon would be naked to the human eye. But the acorn would be as roomy as well,
an acorn.
Some diligent farmers are already tilling the soil for new seeds next spring. While bothersome crows wait for lunch.

Owls are busy filling thier burrows with herbs and the last of the wild asters.

Interlopers are tiptoeing about with golden treasure, ready to bolt if need be.

Some unruly mice are so thrilled at the prospect of fresh pumpkin seeds, they are dancing by moonlight with very little decorum.

And this potter girl is going to put new things in her shop tomorrow.
Happy early fall from me and all the farm peeps.

I absolutely LOVE THE OWL!!! (sorry for shouting, but I can't help myself, it is so, so, so well done!)
Also the badger, on the last picture. Can't quite work out what he is holding, though.

Hi Julie~ Love your new fall things! Fall is my favorite time of year. I remember shopping in Cambria on the cool, crisp days. I know it's pretty there. ~Mandy

Dear Librarian,

Badger is holding a pear.
Doesn't a pear sound good?

Oh Julie, you have been busy, it's all wonderful.
I love the badger - old Brock, with his red scarf!
The owl is delightful, it has a lovely delicate look about it.
The acorn is very sweet and could house a whole family of gnats.
Crows have been making their prescence felt here, stealing scraps I throw out for the chooks. I don't mind them, so it was interesting to see your crow.
Once again another wonderful post, chock full of fab pieces.
My latest Marion Cran is very enjoyable as I had hoped.

Fall is coming, sooo happy to see it in all of your new pieces. Love the witch, and the crow, and the acorn house - and that teeny pumpkin. One can never have too many pumpkins.

Yes, it's time to gather the mums, the bittersweet, and those pumpkin seeds!

Thank-you for sharing your wonderful pottery with all of us!

xoxo Liz

Delila Jemaiel said...

i love that acorn house, it is funny that last autumn i had scribbled on to my papers that i should add door and windows on my acorns, well i think i shall not do that now after seeing your beautiful piece. have you heard that faeries live in acorns?

i am just on a edge of custom ordering something from you Julie, but i shall wait under i find a new home to fill it with your creations.
