It was covered with something. I don't know what it was. Because I got sick the next day, I never got a chance to clean it. Anna has been to my house a couple of times while I have been sick and was going to clean it, but something came up.
After the African Violet show Jean, Anna , Dottie and I were talking in the living room when Anna went in the kitchen. When she didn't come out in a little while, I went there to see what she was doing. She was scrubing this. Anna said she wanted to see what that looked like. When she got done, this is what it looked like. I was so happy. We all looked and admired it.
After they left I looked up the company on the bottom. It was made by Pfaltzgraff in China and manufactured date is 2000. It is called: Winterberry Stoneware Teapot for one Christmas Heritage. The teapot holds two cups and the cup holds one cup.
I really like this and now I will have to make tea in it. I thank Anna so much for cleaning this for me.

My african violets are not doing well right now. During my sicknesses, I forgot to water them and put them in the window. I don't know if I can pull them through or not. Jean and Anna gave me some advice which I am doing, so I hope they live. Don't think they will make the fair this year, but Anna says I have almost four months.

When Michael came over to talk with Elmer, he told me that the African Violet Show was coming up and gave us the date. Jean and I decided that we should take Marilyn to see it this year. She has been ill, in her apartment with about the only time she got out was for the doctors, get groceries - only necessary things. We decided she needed to go to the African Violet Show and anyway she did it for me, it was our turn to do it for her.
I contacted Dottie to see if she could drive us. She was already booked by other people going other places, but she wanted to go with us, too. Said she would see what she and her husband, John, could work out. Later, she called back and said she could take us. So we called Marilyn and told her she was going to the African Violet Show and wasn't driving.
Last Saturday, I walked to Dottie's as she lives right next door to us then we went off and picked up Jean. From there, we went and picked up Marilyn. Off, we went to the African Violet Show. When we arrived, we walked through and saw it all a couple of times. It was a little smaller this year than from last year, but the March wind storm, power loss in some areas and freezing caused many peoples African Violets to die. Still it was a nice show.
In another room, they were selling plants, soil, fertilizer, containers and more. We didn't buy any plants there this year. Oh I forgot to tell you that Marilyn took pictures, some which will be on tomorrow. Then we got back in the car and came back to Marilyn's apartment. We sat in her living room talking. She had something in the kitchen that I had seen that needed cleaning, but I always forgot it and today was the day. She has a post on it later this week.
Marilyn wanted to pay some money to Dottie for driving us, but we wouldn't hear of us. We just wanted her to have a nice time. Dottie wouldn't take it from here, anyway.
We all had a great time that day and hope it made Marilyn feel better.

The two wall hangings are 13" by 16" are made by the same person each year. Carol Lee read in the Budget last year that one sold for $725.00 and had 638 pieces.
The outhouse got blown off of the foundation during a windstorm last year.
The auction is in May and September. People can rent a space and park their RV's there for the auction.
Thank you Carol Lee so very much for sending these pictures. If anyone else has pictures, they would like to share with us - just let me know.
