Holiday Sales Continue through to Christmas

Thank you to all that came out to my Holiday Open House and Sale. It was a great weekend, a chance to reconnect with friends and share some holiday cheer and help people find the perfect handmade gifts for friends, colleagues and loved ones. My studio will be open up until Christmas for sales and I will be hard at work in the studio finishing up some orders and making work for my show at the Katherine Butler Gallery in Sarasota Florida that starts on January 14, 2009. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and the best of the season to all of you.

Open House Starting This Friday December 5th to 7th

The shelves are stacked and the final firings are underway to prepare for this weekend's open house. All that is left is a bit more firing, some cleaning and of course a whole lot of baking so visitors can enjoy some delicious goodies while browsing. I am really excited as I have some new designs in my functional line as well as new pendants. And of course, in time for the holidays I have some beautiful holiday ornaments that are wrapped and ready for hostess gifts or stocking stuffers. I hope you can stop by to my home and studio - 135 Kent Street Hamilton. For a link to a map, please see my website at http://www.taralynnefranco.com/

The times are:
Friday December 5th - 4pm -8pm
Saturday December 6th - 10am - 4pm
Sunday December 7th - 10am - 4pm

On a personal note, today is my grandma Pasqualina Franco's 110th birthday. Yes, she was born on December 2nd, 1898. We celebrated with her this past weekend. This is my sister Nycole (left) and I with Gram. I had just told her something and just before Robert snapped the picure she looked at me to respond. Is she cute or what?
