Working away...

I have been working on some bowls
and a few other things.
This is a poppy and some leaves.

I made pottery beads and this cuff center to make into 
a bracelet.  I love this one!
I love wearing lots of bracelets at one time.
Made some Butterfly Ornaments that my
friend Connie suggested.
I made a radish bowl that I loved and sold
so I made another.
This one is quite large and deep.

A small sunflower bowl

and a coneflower bowl
Bowls don't have to be boring...

For Butterflies and Birds


A leaf bird bath with a Monarch
On of my hanging butterfly water dishes.

When I can't find plates like I envision in my mind...
well I just make them.  I love ferns!



These three are all done!

My patio table...

My patio table and chairs were looking
pretty old and beat up.
Last year I meant to give them a spruce up but I
thought it would be such a big job that I put it off.
So this year- was the year to get it done!
I like this set, so I thought I'd see if I
could keep it a bit longer.
Tada! What a difference a few 
cans of paint can make!
and it wasn't hard at all.
I'm quite happy with how it came out!
A little effort and it looks brand new!

Makes for a cozy little spot to relax!

 An Iris- which can be either wall handing
or it can be displayed a table with a plate easel.

Porch Spruce Up

I guess I spend too much time on
 Pinterest and decided to spruce
up my porch.  This is BEFORE...


Check out the FREE chairs my husband
brought home for me!  These were pricey chairs
that were in good condition.  Just dry and weathered!


Don't they look amazing after a few can's of Thomson's
Water seal with stain in it.
I bought new cushions on sale.
I'm quite happy with a new cozy spot to sit and relax.
I love the chairs to go in the space
courtesy of my husband!

A frog and a lily pad bird bath...

This probably was a bit inspired by the poor dead bull frog
that I had to fish out of my goldfish pond.  
He was a bit greedy and choked on a mouse.
 No kidding!
So I thought I would try 
something different with my clay!
I have never sculpted a frog. 
The thin toes feet on the frog were the hardest.
I plan to fine tune them when the clay dries.
This project used a lot of clay.  Probably more
than any project I have made so far.  
It is pretty large at a minimum of 15" across. 
I like it... and if no one wants to buy it
I can see it going next to my pond in the future...
