My friend and colleague, Laura Lenhert, is working on pottery again, so those of you who were interested may now contact her and place your orders. What a great way to commemorate 7/2/15! She can duplicate what she so graciously created for me, or, you can send her a photo of what you would like, and she can do that for you. I have had her do fraternity/sorority houses for my kids, houses, and even my daughter’s bridal bouquet as a wedding gift. She can also personalize on the back. Laura will make a contribution to SSB at a later date based on the number of orders that either reference my name, or SSB. I encourage you to reach out to Laura:
email Laura: potterybylaura@yahoo.com

website: www.potterybylaura.com

Platters (like below): $50
Square platters: $45
Round Ornaments: $15

To celebrate the 2015-2016 school year, I am excited to launch the NEW
“Sweet Briar College” 2.0 Keychain!

Buy 4 or More and save 20%. Use code: SBC4ORMORE at checkout.

📚📓✏️📌📚📓✏️📌📚📓

15% of each keychain sold will be donated to Sweet Briar College!

Meg E. Bespoke Keychains are fashionable and durable. They are made out of a 1.5 inch solid wood ball. Each keychain is hand painted a bright pink (a new, slightly different bright pink than the #SaveSweetBriar keychain), complete with a hunter green vixen head, a gem and bright green bow to match (again, a new, slightly different green from the #SaveSweetBriar keychain bow).

Each keychain is finished with a high shine, clear protective coating to prevent chipping from everyday use. (They do withstand those of us who are hard on our keys; however, normal ware will occur over time).
