I’m not sold on the “pop-up” term, but the Pottery Barn store in Bethesda (4750 Bethesda Avenue) kindly allows space for some local potters this weekend. Saturday 10 to 8, Sunday 10 to 6.

Hope to see you there.

Minnesota plate 2017

This plate suggests the Land of 10,000 Lakes, the first state I entered at the moment of birth. It’s about nine inches across.

* Fifty more, if you count the District of Columbia, where I now live, and which still has no congressional representation. Let’s think about that.

Seventy-five dollars.

but where I see “whiskey sipper,” you may see:

ramekin, tea-bag holder, seed-starter, creamer, egg cup, salt cellar, olive pit pit, tooth fairy beaker, earring catcher, aspirin dispenser, espresso cup, guitar pick holder, change collector, key receptacle, totem…

Twelve to eighteen dollars. Some are wood-fire products, and that’s special.

or two, or maybe three. Instead of a vase, you need this little plant holder. There may be a better name; I don’t know it. I know the little spiky think is called a florist’s ‘frog.’

I have a few of them for around 20 dollars each.

It’s clay, not wood, but looks like bark. Faux, like “fake.” If this administration has its way, a lot of the real trees will be history. The flower is real.

I was in a store once many years ago where the poor sap was selling plastic picture frames that he called “fox wood.” Thought that was a kind of tree.

Fifteen dollars each for the vases.
