A Bonny Good Day

I was lucky enough to have my favorite girl ~ Gina ~ here since last Thursday
and we caught up on some much needed girl time.
I know I am biased but she is a wonderful person, kind heart, a great Mom and
just has a way about her that makes everyone love her.

So after staying up way to late on Thursday night sharing a bottle of wine and lots of conversation, on Friday we got our butts out of bed and prepared for the day.
We took a little Road trip to Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia.
Our destination was a little pottery place called Sara Bonnyman Pottery.

Gina ~ Dianne ~ Lori

The self portrait is not the greatest.... oh well!
Cousin Dianne also joined us so our duo became a trio.

We got into Tata around 1 pm and met one of Gina's friends for lunch at The Chowder House:

This is such a quaint little town so we explored a bit up the main street after lunch, browsing in the shops and such...

But of course, we were here for a reason so off we went to find the pot of gold at the end of Gina's rainbow.....

I love how you can go right into her studio and see how she works.....

There were CD's everywhere ~ stacks and stacks
Inspiration at it's best

I fell *in love* with these jugs ~ are they not fabulous or what!

When we got home I realized that I did not get a picture of the main showroom!
Oops ~ big oops!

This is her "back room"This is the blueberry pottery that Gina collects.....

off the main showroom
this is right inside the front door....

I LOVE these ~ why I did not buy one ~ I kick myself now!

When we left Sara's the sky opened up ~ but we still made a stop at the bakery ~
well worth the stop although my thighs may disagree!

We also stopped in Pugwash at the Seagull Pewter store ~ left the camera in the car.

Since we were on the Sunrise Trail in the pouring rain...
Being the crazy girls that we are
We HAD to pull over and take one of these....All in all it was a "Bonny Good Day"

Gina bought:
3 pieces to add to her collection

And because I had to leave with something ~

I bought:
Although I wish now I had of bought one of those little hens!

It looks like you had a great time. Love all the pics and the little town. Reminds me of Block Island when my sis and I lived there. Such good memories. Love the pottery!
