Between curious glances of squirrels and the playful antics of chipmunk, I sculpt, shape and handpaint clay. My pottery and ceramic art is all one of a kind. When I have pieces available I put them in my Etsy Store >

LETS TRY AGAIN! comments improved and FARMERS

Looks like my last post caused people to not be able to post, it was set to registered users.  Darn changes on blogspot.  My comments used to work fine and then suddenly there seemed to be no ability to stop the spam.  So I have two options either that word verification thing that many times one types in wrong and has to keep trying or I moderate.  I decided on moderation.  There is another OpenUser but I am not really sure if that would include every one to comment.

I think moderation will work ok, let me know if you are so used to the word verification and would like that instead?

Now for a bit of eye candy.  My recent farmer creations.  These are large farmers that like attention  :-)

Mr. George Wellington

These are sweet!

I don't mind comment moderation, but the captchs make me crazed!

P.S. I have a block on anonymous bloggers which has helped enormously.

I used to have that too Smartcat. However, blogspot has changed - at least my version has. Suddenly you can't just block anonymous bloggers, which is how I had it set before. Ah well... one thing in life is inevitable - Change!

I have been so busy lately I haven't had to time to stop by your wonderful little site .. shame on me .. your work is so adorable and always brings a smile!!

Those are all such great pieces.
I am in lo-o-o-o-ove with Mr. George Wellington. He truly is eye candy!!!

I thought I was losing it when I couldn't find the "no anonymous" commenters....but I see it's that marvelous "change" the world seems to insist on, every few moments!
Word verification is maddening, but I suppose spam is too. :(((
On a bright note, I love your little farmer/farmettes! Happy Spring! :))

these are adorable. you create such wonderful characters!

this is a nice way to do comments. word verification takes too long and can be frustrating to do. i know some bloggers will not comment if they have to do word verification. glad you figured out a way to do it.

I had to go back to word verification unfortunately as I was getting about 40 anonymous and spam a day.
