Staying Home IS Fun

by Dawn Hoff

I have been sticking close to home these days. I have been cooking more, serving more, and using my Polish Pottery in some unexpected ways. Finding things to keep yourself occupied when leaving home is not an option, can be rather challenging. You can leave home, we are not in a true lock down situation.  However, I feel that with my health issues, it is for my safety, to just stay home more often than not.  Therefore, I am using my Polish Pottery to keep myself entertained.


Y’all, I put pottery into my pond. I sure did😁 that happened. I needed a smaller pot. Did I have one? No! I am not going to the hardware store to buy a pot these days. Just no. So, I came inside, grabbed a lesser used Polish Pottery mug and proceed to plant a water lily bulb in it. It is beautiful. My water lily seems to like it. It has put up several lily pads in under 10 days. Hopefully my water will be clear when it decides to bloom. I want to see the beautiful citrus yellow flower floating above the beautiful cobalt of my mug. Fingers crossed it will happen this season.


My husband and I paint. Under more normal circumstances I would use a glass of water to dip my brush into. These days, nope. Not to mention, I don’t have glasses any more. I have been using my pretty pottery bowls. They are glazed, 🤷‍♀️why not use them for inspiration every time I change to a new color? Looking at their beauty and the creative use of color and design is actually an inspirational thing. I think my Polish Pottery makes me a better artist.


Cleaning. Oh, I know it is the worst. But, not with Polish Pottery! I have some rather annoying little cleaning issues and tasks that were left for me by previous residents. Here again, my pottery has saved the day. It made a drudgery chore much easier and prettier to deal with. I have been using my rice bowl to hold bleaching solution. It makes the job not so horrible a task. Because, even though I am cleaning, at least it is with style and beauty, not just chemical bottles and scrub brushes.
