Overnight Fan


I tried something different today — I ordered groceries online and picked them up later this afternoon.  I may never enter the grocery store again!  Truthfully, though, Mr. iknead does most of the grocery shopping and excels at it.  But, today, Mr. iknead was otherwise occupied and my insomnia was making me feel like an extra from Night of the Living Dead so I decided to try it.

Wow.  Why haven’t I done this before???  I went online, picked out what I wanted and chose a time for pick up.  When it was time, I drove to the store, parked, let them know I was there and a nice person brought out my stuff, put it in the car and handed me my receipt.  Oh, I almost forgot the next best thing – my groceries were in real brown paper bags. 😮 I despise  those plastic things but can’t remember to take the reusable cloth ones.  What makes me sound more like an old lady—loving paper bags or my inability to remember about the reusable kind?

The first three online orders are free, after that, there’s a $5.00 charge.  Totally worth it in my book!  Yep, I’m a fan!

I’m Back!


Hey everyone! Remember me? Well, here I am, still an insomniac and getting over a back issue.  Actually, I developed back pain about a week ago that kept me from wheel and kiln until yesterday. Anyhow, I’m much better and eager to get back in the studio. 🙂

Here’s a sneak peek at a couple of things I was able to finish before my back turned on me.

First up is a  medium sized sized, textured vase –

Next, a sweet little ring bowl –

I especially love the green shades inside this little bowl!

These will be going up in my Etsy shop,ClayDreamsPottery in the next few days, as soon as I can take a breather from playing pottery catch up!

This Week’s Sneak Peek


Here’s a look at a couple of projects I’ve been working on this past week………

 

I’ve added some high fire clay and glazes to my supply of low and mid fire glazes and such and am thoroughly enjoying playing around and experimenting with layering glazes. I think this little vase turned out really well, don’t you?

Miss Dixie got a shiny new bowl this past week, thanks to my glaze experiment.  I had marked the new bowl in my head as a new bowl for her, then, when I pulled it out of the kiln, I had second thoughts because of how pretty it was. In the end, though, I stuck to my original plan, and Dixie has a new, pretty bowl.

 

Meals are serious business in Dixieworld!

 

The pretty vase will be added to ClayDreamsPottery by the end of this week, along with some other beauties still in progress that I think will be a hit so keep an eye out for these newbies.
