Abe Lincoln

“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich...strengthen the weak by weakening the strong...bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift...lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves." -Abraham Lincoln

Dirtroad Team - Mudd Puppy Pottery and Fine Old Things

Hello friends I have found two more wonderful shops from the Dirtroad Team to show you.  The first is Mudd Puppy Pottery.  Deb is a busy mom of four with a set of twins, who works with ceramic clay.  She makes accient vessel flutes, something that would be fun to play with kids, plus little hedgehogs, and little people family trees.  A wonderful way to teach child about family history.  The next shop is Fine Old Things.  Karen loves vintage items.  From crafting her path has lead her to the chase of finding old vintage items for her shop.  She has a piece of my mom "good dishes" in her collection.  I had to ask if she mine just have the one missing piece we need.  It is missing because my dad used it in a micro wave!  Not good!  You will find figurines, plus the Newsweek 1979 magazine about Pope John Paul visit to the U.S. in 1979.  I remember the day he came just north of Detroit and how everyone wanted to be there and receive a blessing from him.  From memoires of growing up to teaching the next generation both shops have some special items for you to look over.  Enjoy your visit and come back next week for two more shops from a great team.
