Through some friends, I discovered Tom Jones Pottery, in Fairhope, Alabama.
Located a bit out from town, it's in an area called Clay City. Years ago, the local clay was used to make tiles or bricks, from which my cottage is constructed. Tom is a delightful man, who always has time to chat with his customers. People tend to spend lots of time browsing and debating over which of his wonderful pieces to take home.

Each year, in the early fall, he offers a collectible pumpkin. He makes a limited number of them in three different sizes. Each one is slightly different, and it requires quite a bit of deliberation to determine which one "speaks" to you! Since I only learned of him last year,  I only have two pumpkins, so far. How I wish I had heard about these wonderful pieces seven years ago. Imagine the collection I would have!


  1. Oh how adorable. I cannot have enough good pumpkins. hugs♥olive

  2. Tracy! Those are the most amazing pumpkins I've ever seen. I wonder if it if they ship and whether it would cost an arm and a leg to ship them. Your table looks great! La

  3. Thanks for sharing this, those are wonderful! I would love to add something like this to my Halloween decor. I love it!

  4. Thanks ladies!

    La, check out his website--he does ship!

  5. What delightful objects to collect!

  6. Hi Tracy F. from GA...I'm Vicki A. from GA

    Think I might just have to take a trip to Fairhope Ala to visit Tom and his pottery. Really like those pumpkins! Best, Vicki

  7. Adorable! I'm waiting for a puppy update along with a cottage update :-)
