At my attempt to be crafty, I have painted some pieces. Whenever I can get a babysitter on a Thursday, I have been going to paint pottery with a friend. It is fun and relaxing. I have white dinner plates with blue flowers, so I was trying to go for that theme as I painted a few things for my kitchen.

The platter was fun to paint, but when they put it in the kiln to fire, it cracked. I am so sad. Now I can't use it as a platter, so it is now sitting on my counter as a display item.

I have been wanting a butter dish. I love my new butter dish, it is always in use these days.
My Texas spoon rest has finally gone into retirement as I have painted a new one.

By the way, I did not draw the flowers on this stuff. The pottery places have stencils and you draw right onto the pottery with a ballpoint pen. The pen marks fire off in the kiln. Fun, fun! I can't wait to go back soon!
