This post marks the halfway point in my 365 Project. I have loved every minute of this work, and I cannot wait to see what the next six months will bring.
My favorite part? Feeling more and more like an artist every day.
The subject of today’s photo is a piece made by one of my favorite artists, my Aunt Mary Jo.
Mary makes beautiful leather pouches and accessories, jewelry, and souvenirs. Her shop is OH!Boyd Enterprises.
Before she started working with leather, Mary was a potter. This nut jar is one of the several pieces of hers that I own. I treasure them all, but this is my personal favorite.
I love to serve Spanish or cocktail peanuts in it when I entertain. If Mary were still throwing, she would still be receiving special orders on this jar from my friends and other family members.
