Welcome to my retirement website.

Here’s a very comfortable couch we are giving away. It’s 80″ long, 35 inches high, with 20″ high seat. No animals and no smoke for the last 20 years.  It’s got down cushions and interior padding. It is an antique that has been handed down in our family and used by 3 generations. They knew how to make good solid furniture back in the day. I had it repaired and reupholstered when I got it. The dark floral upholstery fabric on it has never been used without a slip cover. The couch comes with the yellow striped slip cover and another light floral one. The original couch was very low, so I had a furniture maker add taller legs to bring it up to 20″ high seating. These are not fancy since the couch has always had the striped cover on it which covers the legs. The light floral cover would need a skirt added to cover the legs.  The legs could also be painted. Minor chips on 1 back leg.

The top menu has information about Thistle Hill Pottery. I retired in 2013, but am happy to share information about how I ran my studio for 40 years.

The bottom menu is about my retirement hobbies – the history of the Montpelier area and its architecture, as well as a hodge podge of information about our local natural world: plants invasives, Lyme ticks, and the geology of Washington County area.
