Introducing Mountaine Meadows Little Dishes

Just like Mountaine Meadows plaques, these Little Dishes are lovingly handmade of all natural and recycled materials, by Deborah and her staff, in our Vermont studio.

Use Mountain Meadows Little Dishes to hold spoons, teabags, small soaps, paperclips, rings, etc.

When in doubt add more wine

Add a little whimsy to your diner party by placing Little Dishes on your table.

The sayings Deborah has chosen are special because of the way they speak personally to the important people in our lives, making them smile and laugh.

Don't cry over spilled milk... It could have been wine.

This Little Dish makes a great hostess gift.

All our products are created from soft pliable clay that is mixed here, in our Vermont Studio, and formed by hand. Each individual Little Dish is hand decorated with forms inspired by musical notation, cosmic spheres and astrological imagery.

Little Dishes made by Mountain Meadows Pottery feature specially designed packaging with the gift wrap built right in.

Watch the video in the link above to see how the packaging easily turns the Little Dish into a lovely gift that is all ready to give.

Cheer up a friend with plaque that says: You Are My Sunshine

Have you ever wanted to cheer up a friend?
Maybe we are thinking about spring too much here in the northeast kingdom of Vermont. It is still so cold. Spring is in a big battle with winter. We know spring will win eventually but I  wish it would not take so long.

In an effort cheer up a friend who is so sick of winter I think she could just cry. I sent her this plaque.

You are my sunshine

Cheer up someone by telling them, "You are my sunshine"

Now she can think about sunshine.

Of course there are other options for cheering up a friend, even at a sensitive time. When a friend has cancer it is no time to avoid them or shy away. Rather it is the time we should be most supportive. Mountaine Meadows has a great plaque for this situation.

Cancer cannot cripple love, silence courage, destroy friendship, shatter hope or conquer the spirit.

Never shy away from supoorting a friend in need

However, sometimes we must  remind someone that – It Is What It Is.  This can be a hard pill to swallow, but sometimes there are no other ways to accept reality and move on.  It can help someone to know that they are not the only one who has to accept that – It Is What It Is. After all if it is fired into pottery clay and will last longer than all of our lifetimes combined, it must actually be true.

It Is What It Is ceramic wall sign

Here it is the hard truth, that can make you smile

So these are just a few of the ideas at Mountain Meadows for gifts to cheer up a friend. Visit the website right now and see all the others. There are so many to choose from, some are funny and some are serious, but they all make fantastic supportive gifts for friends in need.
