Twit Twoo!

Owls for some reason always remind me of Autumn time, as well of course of being wise old things, so are relevant this time of year as new school years have just started and we are heading into Autumn.

At Crafty Monkey we have a large range of owl related pottery. There really are some lovely pieces in the way of ornaments, plant pot holders and cookie jars. If you haven’t seen them you’ll have to pop in as they are very popular and we know you will fall in love with them as much as we did.

Before and after our owl pottery has been painted and fired.

Proposing with pottery: ‘bowl’ em over!’ – 20th March

will you marry me

We’re all big slushy softies at Crafty Monkey and love nothing more than a spot of romance! That said, there’s nothing more fitting that the fact that it’s ‘World Proposal Day’ to make us gush and get all silly.

We’re fortunate enough to have been party to several marriage proposals…sadly enough nobody has asked to us come along to a romantic dinner and jump out of a giant cake with an engagement ring, however, we have commissioned a few of pieces of pottery for customers who wanted to pop the question via a plate or a bowl decorated by our own fair hands! We’ve also had a fair few people create their own ‘pottery proposal pieces’.

Happily, if you wish to propose to your other half, you’re not restricted to one day of the year, but it’s a lovely sentiment to celebrate that special date annually.

If you’ve got any proposal stories, from slushy to outrageous- do share them with us on our Facebook page as we love to hear about a happy ending!
