Carolina Chocolate Drops

Last night we got to see the great Carolina Chocolate Drops here in Athens. They are, you might know, the inspiration for our name. "Old Cat Died" is the title of an old square dance tune, and the words are pretty straightforward:

Old cat died, kitten got cold,
She ain't come around here no more.

They played that song last night, and it made our night. The club was packed out, and we were up on the third-floor balcony, so we didn't try to get down to meet them after the show, but we wondered on the way back to the car whether anyone had seen our web URL painted on the bumper of our car and made a connection. It's all about the marketing, y'all.

Thanks to All our Fans!

With holiday markets over, we want to thank everybody who came out to Crafstravaganzaa and the Good Dirt sale and supported us this year! We got a lot of enthusiastic buyers and a lot of encouraging comments, and we really appreciate both. We're very happy that the stories we tell on our pottery resonates with people, and that they can take it home and make their own stories out of it.

So, Old Cat Died is back to work - okay, just a few cups to keep in practice. It's the holidays, you know.

Love Shack Hiding!

It's been a while, what with wood-firing and working to get ready for holiday sales, but we finally got a new Love Shack out for some lucky Athens resident. As you can see, it's surrounded by books - arts and crafts books, of course.

If you found the Love Shack and followed it here, please let us know! We're glad to find them homes!
