Happy 10th Birthday to Us !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Post  Ev on Tue 28 Aug - 7:17

Time really does fly when you are having fun!
It was 10 years ago today that I manged to get this site off the ground with the help of HeatherT and TonyK who supplied endless photos for the Galleries.
We have come a long way since then and have covered a lot of pottery ground, but there is still so much more to learn and find out and it will never be complete.

10 years ago I was a Studio Potter who collected Studio Pottery and my Crown Lynn knowledge could fit on the end of my little finger, but look at the 360' turnaround which sees me spending most of my time doing Crown Lynn things. I would never have seen that in my future and I'm grateful that Heather and Tony's passion rubbed off on me too.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to each and every one of us that has helped to make this site the success it is and Many Happy Returns cheers

Happy Burthday to us, to Ev, to Heather, to Tony.

It is still two weeks off the eighth anniversary of my registration with the forum. I was a slow starter but did catch up with all but Ev, in numbers of posts, although I know that my involvement has slacked since the fb groups became primary venue for discussion of the commercial potteries at least.

I still feel like a jonny-come-lately though. The forum was fully formed when I arrived. It has just got bigger, with more galleries, more members, and a lot of questions answered along the way. Those first two years must have been hard work and I'm sorry not to have been part of that. Since then it has been slow and steady and even if we never get to know everything Crown Lynn I think the race is pretty much won, Ev.
