Bea and Alex McCrosky here for Easter
Christopher and Jenny Cupp and daughter, Emma Grace, of Olive Branch, attended Easter Sunday services with Becky Cupp. Afterward, they joined Billy and Tammy Cupp for lunch at Safari’s located at Kirkwood. Walker and Heather Cupp and children, Lexi and Cade, of Collierville, Tenn., spent Easter afternoon with Becky.
Bea McCrosky of Jackson, and Alex McCrosky of Arizona came home for the Easter holiday.
This Saturday, I took a trip out Chulahoma Avenue to the pottery studio of Sheri Marshall. If you are unfamiliar with her work, you can go to her website, www.marshall-pottery.com and take a look. She is a visionery in the field of pottery. She dabbles with mixing her own glazes which are all just fantastic! There is one that literally changes colors, depending on the light it is in at the time. She can construct a mug in no time flat! She has led workshops at local schools, which is something every child enjoyed! Who wouldn’t have a grand time playing with wet clay and then having something wonderful to show for it? If you are a lover of pottery, all utilitarian pieces and certainly fun and funky, I would definitely give Sheri Marshall a call. Her website is fantastic, too, and shows her at the wheel and all of the different pieces she creates. It was just fun for me to sit in her studio and watch her work. Truly fascinating and such a lovely lady.
Ruff and Susan Fant and son, Henry, of Washington, DC, were the visitors of Dr. Ben Martin on Thursday. While here, they also visited with other friends.
Arcadia Publishing of Charleston, SC, has just released Images of America: Holly Springs, Mississippi, which was co-authored by locals, Alice Long and Mark L. Ridge. The two collected old photographs from Holly Springs citizens until they had enough to create this wonderful book. The book will take you back to a time when the pace of life was much slower. It is a phenomenal pictoral view of how things were “back then,” as most of us would say. The books will be available during Pilgrimage, as Alice Long will be marketing them at Crump Place. Images of America: Holly Springs, Mississippi, is a “must have.” Every picture tells a story of each bit of our history and heritage throughout the years.
It is truly fascinating to see how things have changed - most especially the landscape. Great job, Alice and Mark, for a book that I am sure will be treasured by all who own one!
