Polish Pottery

Life is good. I have been given so many things to be grateful for. This week I kept very busy after work learning to quilt, getting to know new sisters in my ward, visiting my friend Lexa, baking Peanut Butter Blossom cookies for a FRG fund raiser, and going polish pottery shopping. Hopefully, I will finish the quilt tomorrow in class so I can get back to sewing curtains for my home that are 9 months in the making.

Saturday morning, I woke up before the crack of dawn to meet some friends in Wieden to go polish pottery shopping in Boleslawiec, Poland.
For a first timer, polish pottery shopping is a bit overwhelming. You walk into a shop and find shelves and shelves of pottery stoneware such as plates, mugs, baking dishes, condiment cups, teapots, etc. Each shop is filled with different patterns of stoneware. I had a hard time deciding whether I wanted all of my stoneware to match or if I wanted to buy a mixture of them all. I decided on the latter and hope I don't have any regrets later as I am a person that usually likes everything to coordinate.
Before coming back home, we stopped to eata Polish dish--pierogis. Pierogis are half circular dumplings of unleavened dough, stuffed with mashed potatoes, cheese, and onions. Surprisingly enough, it was pretty good. However, I wouldn't want to eat it every day.
Thanks ladies for creating some great memories--Paige Dalke, Jody Dean, Sabrina Ewert, LsDawn Peterson. Hopefully, this is the first of many great times together.



  1. How fun. What beautiful pottery! Glad you have made some good friends there.
