Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Sunday In Port Wing


If you wend your way along highway 13 at the very northern edge of Wisconsin,

which just happens to roughly parallel the southern shore of Lake Superior, you will not only find nature in its raw beauty but you will also pass right through - - -

Port Wing is a quaint and cute little village.

It's the kind of place that makes you want to stop for a spell.

This little former church now Port Wing Pottery beckoned me to enter.

Inside I met Shane Upthegrove who is the creator of all these lovely pieces. She not only sells her pottery here, but creates it on her potter's wheel in the back room, fires it in the side yard kiln, and lives with her hubby in the upper loft bedroom and rear kitchen.

Thanks to Unknown Mami for hosting

Today my city is Port Wing, Wisconsin

Port Wing is a sweet little town. The pottery house look like a great place to spend a day, just browsing.

These are the kind of towns or places I really enjoy visiting. I am not for the big city traffic ways. Loved this little tour with you.

Ahhh, wonderful!

Hi Keetha, it is so nice to meet you! What a darling village so quaint and homey looking. Would love to take a tour. Thank you for your helpful comment about the font size. I was wondering why it came up two different sizes. I've been doing the blog for a while, still have so much to learn, always love getting new tips.. thank you so much. I've gone back and changed it out, looks a billion times better.. any other hints please feel free to pass them my way.. hugs ~lynne~

What a cute little town. I am such a big city girl that I love the days I can find little towns like this and just get lost in them for the day.

Lori E said...

Little towns are often full of the most creative, artistic people. We have lots of fabulous potters around here to but I have run out of room to store any new pieces.

That looks like a sweet little town! Did you stick a toe in Lake Superior? Even in the summer that thing is frigid!

Hi there Keetha,
Thanks for stopping by my blog!!! Your summer has most certainly been nicer than ours...but school starts here on Sept. 7th...So there's still some hope for sunny days. :)

I am always amazed when I see buildings in small towns surrounded by so much open space, what a truly quaint town. Love the glimpse into the pottery store.
