Giveaway :: Tania Julian Ceramics

Wednesday, March 5, 2014


{shop :: Facebook}


One of my favorite ways to connect with my friends is with food, laughter, good conversation, and more food. Having people over at our home is something my husband and I openly admit doesn’t happen often enough and we are working on changing this. One way I’m motivating myself is by wishlisting all of the beautiful details that these types of festivities warrant. From flowers to ceramics, my wandering eye is alive and well and ready to party!

Tania Julian Ceramics is one of those finds that makes you want to rethink your entire pantry. Julian is a self-taught artist clearly found her calling when she followed her heart into ceramics. Her line is whimsical and functional and joyful. The White Pie Plate makes me want to bake a fruit pie for the neighbors and I’m pretty sure the I Love Mom Mug will be the only thing on my wishlist for Mother’s Day. Julian’s simple, graphic designs and masterful crafting will no doubt bring a sense of community to your table as well.

Tania Julian Ceramics is giving away one set of four napkin rings and two tumblers to one lucky winner! To enter to win, please answer the following question no later than Wednesday, March 12th.
Please visit Tania Julian Ceramics and tell us: When was the last get together you attended and what was the highlight?

    The last get together I attended was a friend’s 40th birthday party. The highlight was getting to introduce her to a friend I know she will get on fabulously with.

    Yesterday – kids had another snow day – so us ladies that usually get together for Tuesday Tea threw together a last minute Mardi Gras party! The highlight was the lone Dad that showed up – though it didn’t bother him one bit : )

    My family and I are in a new, strange city so we have not been at a gathering since the holidays. However I find the older I get the more I appreciate the dinner table conversation ( especially after being a bit lonely in my new hometown.) Sitting at a long country table filled with delicious food, laughter and a healthy family – well there’s nothing better. Note: being that is was Christmas the good wine came out which always helps things.

    A friend and my sister visited recently and we played a bunch of old video games that brought back memories of the old days. Then we had our necessary rounds of Skip-Bo that always bring laughter.

    My mother-in-law just got remarried to a much younger man. The highlight of the event was the adorable box step/waltz that they attempted. It reminded me of a mother dancing with her son at a bar mitzvah. Awkward and rehearsed.

    My husband and I belong to a Gourmet Dinner Group with 3 other couples ~ last Saturday night it was our turn to host – the hosting couple does main course, signature drink and wine- other couples do 1- appetizers, 2- pre-course (soup,or salad ) along with a side dish (veggies and or carb) and 4th couple does dessert. We meet every 6 -8 weeks. The highlight of the night was sharing each of our travels since we last were last together

    We had my sister-in-law and her husband over last night to make donuts for Fat Tuesday- a tradition that my husband’s grandmother has always taken very seriously! The best part, of course, was the donuts, but also that we got to deliver fresh donuts to his grandmother, whose health doesn’t allow her to bake dozens of donuts anymore.

    The last get together I attended was an impromptu visit with our neighbors. I love it when the timing collides just right and we all sit around watching the kids play. The highlight was that as it got later in the evening, we each brought some food out and basically swapped left overs. A whole new and exciting meal! And now we have the idea that whenever one of us has left overs we can do a swap. It’s fun to have stuff I would never think to buy or make!

    A friend is dealing with an ailing older dog (Mojo), so I went to visit them both.  The highlight was Mojo’s happy, excited face and wagging tail upon seeing me, despite his illness.  We cuddled him on the couch and wrapped him in blankets like a baby where he slept contentedly as we talked through the night.

    Hmmm…I suppose it depends on how you define “Get Together!”   I’ll answer it for both the informal and formal situations.

    Informal: Yesterday, my daughter and I were hanging out with a friend and her two girls – we had run over to return a piece of jewelry  – and my child asked (after about an hour), “Is this a PLAY DATE?”  I told her it was an unplanned play date – but with a big smile because I suddenly realized it was the first time since moving 2 years ago across the country that we have the kind of friends that we have accidentally hung-out with friends.

    Formal: At the beginning of the year, we were housesitting and my 5 year old and I threw a 16 person dinner party.  I cooked.  She provided the entertainment (ballet dancing while I played the piano).  We made up party games together  – my favorite was one where we both came up with a question and put them on a piece of paper together.  (Her’s were like: What is your favorite animal?  Mine were like: What do you think art is?)  Then everyone drew a slip of paper and had the two questions together to choose from!  It was glorious.  Good food.  Good friends.  A lot of laughing.  A perfect blend of adult and child – what I’m always trying to find!

    These are beautiful!! The last get-together was with some of my oldest girlfriends I have known for years. The highlight really was just spending time with the people that mean the most to me and that lift me up. Wine drinking, cake eating and lots of laughter. 🙂

    My last get together was an impromptu movie date with my grandparents. My husband and I brought over our newly purchased copy of Disney’s Jungle Book along with some wine. My grandma pulled out all of the treats she could find stashed away in her kitchen. It was fun to listen to them talk about their first experiences with the movie and comment on the actors who provided the voices. Sometimes the best get togethers are those you throw together last minute.

    The last get together I had was a going away party, she is going to Vienna, for one of my sorority sisters. I am really close with her and she is going to be gone for 5 months. The highlight was watching her open my goodbye gift and going nuts with it! I got her a head massager. Also, hugging her goodbye because I know she is going to have a wonderful adventure living in Vienna. I’m so excited and proud of you.

    The last party I attended was a cake party my 4-year old decided we must have one afternoon. It involved a very delicious carrot cake and a thrilled little boy who loved that he planned something and was allowed to follow through.

    The last get together was a month ago when my sister and her family came into town. My mom made her delicious “lumpia”.  My mom is getting older and she doesn’t make her delicious dishes as much anymore  But when she does on occasions, I truly savory them now more so than before.

    San Marin Youth Football Redwood Coast Youth Football LeagueSan Marin Ponies 13Windsor Knights 61st2nd3rd4thTOTALSan Marin060713Windsor06006The San Marin Ponies showed gnowirg maturity and improved their record to 1-1 after overcoming some key early penalties.It looked like the Ponies were going to run away with it early. Their first play from scrimmage was a 58 yard touchdown by Darius Peterson that was nullified due to a penalty. The Ponies were undaunted and continued down the field. The penalty bug struck again when four plays later a 40 yard touch down strike from quarterback Sam Weber to Dylan Wheaton was called back on a holding call. The Ponies were forced to punt without scoring, but knowing they could move the ball.Windsor was unable to move the ball in their first possession. The Ponies defense forced a three and out with team tackling by the defensive line and linebackers, notably Jake Laudenslager and Jeremiah Watts.The Ponies punted to end the first period but not before Daronn McCall delivered a big hit on the punt coverage.Windsor scored near the end of the second quarter on a 35 yard touchdown run to break the stalemate. The point after play for Windsor was no good, thanks to a solid push up the middle of the line by Daniel Hardman and Connor Trahan.The Ponies only had time for one play after the kickoff. Fortunately for them, thats all they needed. Peterson went 60 yards around right end for the equalizer. The PAT was no good and the teams went to halftime tied at six.To start the second half the teams traded punts. The highlight play was a crunching hit put on the Windsor punt returner by Luke Baldini.The Ponies chewed up plenty of game clock behind offensive line cornerstone Center Tyler Schmidt and the power blocking of Rich Galagaran, Mike Domingos, Tony Molloy and Christopher Manion, culminating in a six yard touch down run to the left side by Wheaton. Weber connected with Dante Restivo in the end zone for the PAT.The Ponies had the lead, but there was still time for Windsor to come back. Brady Lacues made a big hit on the kickoff return for no gain. The Ponys defense got mean yet again and forced a key three and out anchored by Defensive Tackles Nathan Duft and Mason Varner, and lock down coverage of corners Mark McCloskey and Tony Htet.The Ponys offense had their own three and out and the kick was partially blocked. The ball was knocked to the side and picked up by a Windsor player with the sideline open in front of him. Special Teams shined again when Wide-out Kendall Kinney sprinted back to make a game saving tackle.With time running out for Windsor, they needed a score. The Ponys defense came up big. Alex Correnti got in the Windsor backfield to interrupt the handoff resulting in a four yard loss; the next play was an incomplete pass. On a key third down play Kaleah Williams broke up the pass play. That left a fourth and 14 with the clock running out, when Restivo iced the victory for the Ponies with an interception to end the game.
