Rosedale: Art of Craft, Saturday, May 9 2009

Gloria with Bulldog's pottery at the Art of Craft in Charlotte. 
 Happy Mothers Day Weekend!

We had a beautiful weekend in Charlotte.  Showing our pottery in Charlotte is always a pleasure, and we like to return to Historic Rosedale to see their gardens and beautiful old trees. The volunteers focus their attentions at Rosedale to preserve green space, and the 1815 Federal Period Home.  The grand home is only a short distance from downtown Charlotte on North Tryon Street. 
We were invited to bring our work along with around 20 other artists and craftsman.

We were serenaded by a minstrel in period attire during the day.

This  is always a fun part for the children.  In the far front of the yard, pony rides were being offered
Beautiful weather, and once again another wonderful and successful event at the Historic Rosedale Plantation House in Charlotte NC.
