Good Morning Friends.....we are sooo excited to begin filling up our mystery box for the big winner. Benny our friend needs all the help he can get to get rid of the bad "C" that he has and it costs alot of monies to do that. Everyone here in Blogville has been helping in any way that they can so we came up with this mystery box filled with items you can only find in IOWA. Wesa really sorry but the box is to little to put a pig in there for sure!!!! Ummmm bacon...oh...okay I am digressing. Anyway without further adooo here is our first item, along with a blurp about the ARTIST.
This artist name is Betty Printy and here is a bit of her story.She is most well known for her signature line of Queen Anne’s Lace pottery,
developed about 1986. She operates a studio and production shop which includes
wheel thrown, hand built slab work, and slip cast objects located in
Bentonsport, Iowa. She has done workshops and demonstrations of wheel thrown
pottery in Bentonsport and throughout Southeast Iowa for many years. In 1989 she
developed an interest in the Raku process and has given workshops in Raku and
maintains a line of beautiful one of a kind Raku pottery pieces in her Gallery.
She has operated, along with her husband Bill, Iron & Lace, a pottery and weaving studio and Blacksmith
Shop for the last twenty years.
We will also include a brochure about Bentonsport where Betty has her shop.
Remember if you want into this raffle just let my mom know on her email simpson_longatyahoodotcom or send her a message on her blog. We know $10 is alot of monies but folks this box will be worth it. We are gonna put some food items from our local Dutchman's store that is found in the village of Cantril also, just all kinds of things. The raffle will offically be over a on August 23 rd with us announcing the winner on that day. We will pay for the shipping cost to the winner.
