Here’s the Dirt…"The Clay Pot"…January 2012

“The Clay Pot”
Chattanooga, TN
Here is a sampling of some of the new looks
we have been working on at the shop.
It’s always fun coming up with new display ideas.
January is the perfect month
for making changes and sprucing up the shop…
We would love for you to “like” us on our facebook page

Here’s the Dirt…"Slate"

We use these rectangular pieces of slate
so many different ways at the shop.
They’re great for pricing, displaying product lines, showing specials…
just write on them with chalk and when your finish just wipe them off.
Perfect for dinner parties labeling your different dishes.

Here’s the Dirt…"Cute Packaging of Bella Cucina Products"

“Cute Packaging”
One of my vendors, “Addiah”, does such a great job packaging
and embellishing her “Bella Cucina” Products
that we carry in the shop…
the mini wooden spoon just top them off!
My vendors, like “Addiah” add so much to the variety of products
we carry in the shop.
They all do such a great job!

Here’s the Dirt…"Map your Destiny" at The Clay Pot

A few photos of my shop…

“The Clay Pot”


Chattanooga, Tennessee.

It’s always fun creating new displays in the shop,

today we worked on a “Map” area…
thought it turned put very well.

I love the globe, postcards

and just the entire mix of muted colors…


Here’s the Dirt…"How I Spent My Spring Break"

While the families were at play
on Spring Break…
I decided to rework some areas
in the shop. Orange is one of my
favorite colors and I love to use it
as an accent color in designing and
in floral arrangements. Thanks to
Virginia Petitte for making the fun
orange banner using various patterns
of orange fabrics. I love the clean
look the pop of orange adds to the
mainly black and white room.
