Gracie and I were guests of Greg’s Pottery.
Yesterday, I told you about our adventure to Winterbloom Tea, today I am going to finish our Fayetteville journey with our experience at Greg’s Pottery. Remember we were supposed to paint pottery on Friday but because the weather was so bad, they were closing early, so we went back the next day.
But before we left on Friday we picked out what we were going to paint, I picked out a kitty mug and Gracie picked out a penguin. Kelly and Madeline ( her helper) set them aside for us so that when we returned the next day we would be ready to paint. Even though we didn’t paint on Friday, we did hang around a little while to take pictures in front of their famous wings. Gracie loves being my model for stuff like this. But as you can tell it was really windy that day, just look at her bangs flying.
So after a rough night and breakfast at the hotel, we ventured back to the historic part of Fayetteville. Of course, we got there around 10 am but Greg’s Pottery didn’t open until noon. So with time to spare, we went back to our favorite place, Winterbloom, to meet up with Tiffany from “The Mrs. Tee”. I always make sure to see if I am traveling to any town that where blogging friends live, to message to see if they are available to meet up. You have to make time for friends, don’t you?
So after our tea with The Mrs. Tee- 😉 see what I did there, we took the short walk to Greg’s Pottery and got our creative juices flowing.
This is what our pottery looked like before. As I mentioned on Instagram, we weren’t sure what they would end up looking like. But it was a very relaxing couple of hours spent creating something unique and something that we could sit back and look at and say we made that.
I also have to give a huge shout out to Kelly and Madeline, they were super sweet and walked around asking if we needed anything else, paintwise and even answering questions and giving to suggestions when asked by the others that were painting pottery. I loved how I felt so at ease there from the moment we walked in the door.
I guess that is one of the reasons, I love Fayetteville so much- a majority of the people I have met there are super nice and friendly. They smile which is so unusual in this day and age. So if you are ever in Fayetteville make sure to let your imagination run wild at Greg’s Pottery and grab some Winterbloom Tea to enjoy while you are painting that masterpiece.
Greg’s Pottery is located on Maxwell Street in Fayetteville, North Carolina located next to the Arts Council.
By the way, we ended up making a trip back to Fayetteville to pick up our finished pieces. I know hardship for us, right?
