Gallery snaps

One of the things that I do for customers is to do a little shopping for them. I have folks that email or call when they need a gift.
In cases like that I get to go shopping in the store for them.

I pick a selection of pots, snap some picture and then let the customer decide what they would like to ship off as a gift.
It can be fun and a bit of a challenge to come up with something that works for them.
I thought this 2 pound pitcher was so sweet, with lots of great drips running down the sides.

This went back on the shelf to wait for someone to come find it one day.

Two other choices I picked out to suggest were the vase and jar below.
They would both be useful and beautiful.
The lid has some great detail on the top of it and a hit of glass to set it all off.
I figure you can remove the lid if you want to fill it with flowers.
Or, you can fill the jar up with whatever your heart desires.
Usually when I send pictures I make sure that I have removed the price tags.

Then I see a little whoops on the bottom side of the vase.
Whoops.... my bad.

 We are waiting for some winter weather to head our way tomorrow.
Cold, wet and possible snow.
I have been thinking about the many people that have been hit with this wild, wet, cold, winter we are having.
I feel lucky that I don't have to worry about going out in it,that my job is close to the house.

We will be layering up.
Stay warm!

Lori Buff said...

Good idea to use the jar as a vase, I never thought of that. Pitchers as vases yes, but not jars until now.

Gail said...

I can personally attest to Meredith's expertise as a personal shopper! It's so nice to open an email with pottery selections all beautifully photographed for your choosing. And that pitcher...fabulous!

How much would that beautiful pitcher fetch? It's a beaut.
