An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day. Henry David Thoreau
Walking is the perfect way of moving if you want to see into the life of things. It is the one way of freedom. If you go to a place on anything but your own feet you are taken there too fast, and miss a thousand delicate joys that were waiting for you by the wayside. Elizabeth von Arnim

Mini Rowe Pottery

 Still icy in town so skipped my outside walk again and 
walked laps in the basement.
I remind my self that at least I can get my steps in that way
and there will be many days when I can walk outside!!

I have a small collection of Mini Rowe Pottery that I
thought you might like to see.
I bought the pieces one at a time from a little shop in Waldorf, Maryland 
when we lived there in the late 80's early 90's.

The pieces are just a couple to 3 inches tall and I just love them
because they are so cute.
When I bought them they were just a few dollars but some of them
are worth a lot more now.

The box of things to be shredded was getting full so I spent some
time this afternoon shredding.
I like doing it.

Nice to see some sunshine today and a little melting going on.
Supposed to get pretty cold overnight but will probably 
be able to walk outside.
Will have to wait and see how cold it gets.

Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Thursday

A vigorous five-mile walk will do more good 
for an unhappy but otherwise healthy adult 
than all the medicine and psychology in the world.

Oh! Those are really nice!

...I bought a few pieces similar to this in Williamsburg, Va.

They are adorable, and I bet worth quite a bit of money. It is to be a cold snap here as well. Supposed to be 10 degrees tomorrow night. I lived in Maryland for about 7 years, near Hyattesville. Technically Landover.

Mari said...

I've never heard of these, but they are so cute!
We had sunshine, but very cold too, and supposed to get even colder.

I love your Rowe pottery. I have several large pieces I ordered many years ago.

I love your Mini Rowe Pottery. I love miniature things. What a cute collection! I hope things warm up soon so you can walk outside. See you again tomorrow.

Lisa said...

What a cute little pottery collection.
Hope the ice melts for you soon so you can get back out.
Our temps here in NC have been between 40 and 60 but tomorrow suppose to get down into the teens.
The weather is so funny here. We never know how to dress.

Vee said...

Those are very sweet. I especially like the butter crock. Nobody will be out walking here for the next couple of days. The temps are going to tank to well below zero. The mere thought makes me shiver.

Cute miniatures. That's a great quote. Hope you can walk outside tomorrow.

Rose said...

Your miniature pottery is pretty! It is supposed to e very cold and windy here today, I will ride by indoor bike. Take care, have a great day and happy weekend!

Anni said...

I really like the butter churn most of all. These pieces are all new to me though.
Also, love the quote!!!!!

Debbie said...

That's quite a nice collection of pottery! And I love that quote :) Walking outside does wonders! I hope you get to return to your outdoor walking soon. I'm so ready to see the sun!

Henny Penny said...

Your pottery collection is so pretty! Hard to imagine them being so tiny. I love pottery and have a few pieces, mostly picked up at thrift stores. Hope you get to walk outside again soon. Oh, I really like your new denium skirt.

Happy@Home said...

So glad you shared your collection as it is, indeed, cute! The little butter crock is especially charming.
Hope you are back to walking outside real soon.

Jeanette said...

Those are super cute! I have a small collection of miniature things (besides my ornaments) that I collected long ago with the intention of making a miniature house one day.

Michelle said...

I like these very much. We used to live in Crofton, MD, close to Annapolis.

Bill said...

I like your Rowe pottery, it' new to me.

Granny Marigold said...

I couldn't agree more re: the quote about the benefits of a walk. It doesn't even have to be a 5 mile one.

Kim said...

Such cute little pieces!

Your dedication to walking in your basement is inspiring!👏

William Kendall said...

I do like those.

I love that last quote! We don't get in that many miles but we hiked for 2 hours yesterday and I was what I call...good tired! Not stressed, just physically tired. Enjoy your evening! Hugs!
