One of my favorite “fun things” to do is go to the local paint-your-own-pottery place. It’s a great amount of creativity for me – not too much pressure, too much work, but a lot of fun.
Here are some of the pieces around the house that I’ve done, as you can see, I like trays. They’re sprinkled around, and hold keys, jewelry, and miscellaneous items that collect in high traffic areas (I emptied everything out to take photos.)
as always, click on photos if you want to see them larger.
painting the back is half the fun
coasters (well, small plates we use as coasters)
lidded box – top and inside
Sometimes I can convince T. to get in on the action too. He says he doesn’t like it but I secretly think he’s lying. Here are some of the things he’s done:
Darwin and the monkey ramekin
