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 with Montezuma Mudd and Metal by Mandy

Welcome back to my blog!  I have been sick most of the summer, and then had some big issues with my blog.  So now I'm getting well, and the blog is fixed!!!! YEA!  With all of this behind me let's visit with some of the wonderful shops from the Dirtroad Team.  The first shop is our team leader Phyllis from Montezuma Mudd Pottery, from Colorado, and one of our potters.  After being evacuated this summer because of the forest fires, and the big clean up, she is back.  Her shop is filled with pottery that is oven, dishwasher and microwave safe, unless otherwise stated.  She uses non toxic, lead free glazes on her pottery.  Plus her sister does some amazing pencil drawings that Phyllis turns into decals for her pottery.  Love it when family helps each other out, plus her mother is also one of the team captains.

The next shop is Metal by Mandy, from Kansas, where Amanda the shop owner specializes in silver and copper.  You will find some wonderful personal pendants, plus pendants that she has made up already for you to purchase.  My favorite is the baby fingerprint, what a wonderful gift for the new parents or grandparents!  This would make for a very special and personal gift this Christmas season.

Make sure to add both shops to your favorites so you can come back for some great gifts this holiday season.

The Dirtroad Team has a web site, where you can find and visit some of the other wonderful shops from this team.  Each of us comes from a small town across the U.S., and each one of us comes with our own talents.  Love the great mix on this team, plus the care we have for each member.  If you are on Etsy and live in a small town check out this caring team.
