Meet Martha the Crow!!!

I had such a fun time making Martha for my friend Sharon. Sharon has a store called Shair's Crows Nest and she needed an "Official Greeter" for the store.  The last "Official Greeter" for
the store was Marty the Crow.
 Marty was not for sale... but when a lovely family came in to shop they fell in
love with Marty and insisted that they must have was very hard to part
with Marty but Sharon decided to let Marty go live with the lovely family.
Their last name was Crow!!!

 Sharon now needed a new "Greeter" ...
Everything I had on hand was for a girl
nothing for a boy.I gave her a beautiful straw hat with
a sunflower, a nice striped blouse and jeans,
a darling pearl necklace
and couple of babies to tuck in her apron...
and this is how Martha came to be.

If your ever in the area be sure to stop in and say Hi! to Martha and the Kids at Shair's Crows Nest
located on the first floor of The Christmas Shop
Rt. 40,   Chalk Hill, Pa. 15421

One Vote Can Help So Many!

I'm posting today in hopes of helping my friend Janelle qualify for a $250,000 Grant to help her expand her business  Muddy Rose Pottery. Janelle's passion and main focus of her business is to offer her Therapeutic Clay Program to individuals with
 Intellectual and Physical Disibilities. 
There are many interested individuals awaiting their turn to attend the program
 but unfortuately they are just a small studio and do not have enough room.

The pic below is one of her wheelchair students using a specialized pottery wheel made specifically for individuals in a wheel chair...right now they only have 1 of these...
 but have many more individuals waiting their turn to attend a class.

Please help them to continue to help others by spreading the word about their need to expand. The first step to qualify for the $250,000 grant is to get 250 one time votes
 by June 30th.
Follow this link and enter Muddy Rose Pottery as the business you support and vote for them.
I appreciate everyone taking the time to help out.
