Pottery Painting: Bringing back memories

Have you ever glazed or  "painted" a plate, bowl, or mug?

Actually, I have. I can't remember how old I was (probably 11, or 12, or 13) but I still remember it was in a department store's kitchen and home department in Jakarta, Indonesia.

According to my baby sister, we both painted plates. Her's was purple and mine was orange.

One day, I got bored and Googled "Things to do in the Summer in New England" and Weird Girl Creations popped up on the list.

It's a very nice little hide out in Barrington, RI, not too far from the city.

They had a lot of different potteries available from cute mini owl salt & pepper shakes to popcorn holders to Hello Kitty coin banks to cupcakes cookie jars!

I settled to paint a dinner mug and Sunny painted a Solo cup.

We also painted an owlie mug for Jackie with hopes that she'll drink more hot tea or Milo during the chilly nights in Davis, CA.

After about a week or two, here's how they turned out.

Pretty cool, don't you think?
