Pause in Blog

Whether permanent or not, this blog is now combined with my other one Alchemy of Clay. http://blackmtnbarb.blogspot.com/
go there, and then follow me over there. The personal and genealogical archives, and Black Mountain NC scenery and my potting life are combined. It's a good thing.

Selling at Tailgate Markets

I have some good friends who also sell their pottery and clay creations with me at Tailgate Markets every Saturday during the summer (in case you haven't been reading my blogs for a while and don't know that.)

Early last Saturday morning was chilly in the shade, but it was delightful by noon.
One little girl had to check out the "pocket dog" being carried by a Harley riding red haired cowgirl.

We call ourselves Mudbuddies, and aren't too organized.  We like that.

This may be the wrong kind for gardeners, but a lady bug landing on one of Cathy's bowls made me think of good luck.

Ladybug, Ladybug turn around.
Ladybug, ladybug touch the ground.
Ladybug, ladybug jump up and down.
Ladybug, ladybug fly all around.

I wondered why I never said that verse...because we had Teddy Bear where I grew up...humph.

But I still haven't found the source of her luck.

Well, the number of spots is important according to this article...

There are lots of myths around the world about ladybugs and their spots. If a ladybug lands on you in Brussels, the spots on that ladybug tells you how many children you will have. Many farmers around the world have believed that the spots on a ladybug tells the fortune of the next harvest, if there are less than seven spots, the harvest will be good. Some people believe that if a ladybug lands on you, you can count the spots and you will soon receive dollars in the same amount as the spots. Believe what you want about ladybug spots, but the fact is they just make ladybugs the cutest beetle in the world.
