It's finally feeling like summer here as the temperatures are rising to the mid-80s as the sun is shining brightly in the sky.  With all the summer feels, Brandon has discovered the color of summer and it's TEAL!   Now paired with our beachy blue, it's a summer color combo that can't be beat!  Doesn't it just make you want to head out to your nearest body of water, hop on a boat and leave your cares on the land??  Douglas Lake, here I come!  You can find several products in this new color scheme online.  Happy Summering!

Our newest product is this delightful berry bowl, for washing those fresh summer berries.  The little holes at the bottom of the base allow for the water to flow through to wash each berry thoroughly.  You can find a nice selection of these on our online store, AlewinePottery.net. 

A favorite breakfast at our house is Strawberry Shortcake.  The kids always request it for special occasions.  If you would like to make this yourself, you can find the Bisquick Shortcake recipe below.  Cut about a pint of strawberries into bite-size pieces and pour a half a cup of sugar over them.  Refrigerate overnight before you make your biscuits in the morning.  This gives the strawberries that delicious, sweet syrup to soak into the biscuits.  Don't forget to top it off with Cool Whip...it's the best part!
