a MIXED bag...

 People look at this blog, and if you are observant, you probably notice that I usually try to connect ideas and themes in a daily post.  So it is coherent!

Not today!

A little of everything perhaps....

Many of you know that our sweet little beagle is a therapy dog.  We visit Longview Senior Living every week where she is SPOILED and she attacks one and all with kisses...

Saturday evening we went to a bonfire and I brought along a couple of unfired small pots and tossed them in...the next day they looked pretty groovy!

You hear me say "open studio this weekend!" and this is what the studio looks like...
Oi, whatta mess!

I was goofing off Sunday and it occurred to me "make an airplane!" and I did...this is the first.  I am very scared that it will crack and break in a million ways, but I think if I make another it will be stronger.
Have an awesome day!

Yay, airplane is great. Definitely a wonder of clay, but can it fly? Sure, but landing may be difficult. Love Penny, what a gal!

Lori Buff said...

You read my mind, I was just wondering if you and Penny were still visiting the nursing home.
I like the plane, will you make it into a bank or something?

Michèle Hastings said...

you are always coming up with something new... next you will be trying to make the propeller spin on that very cool plane.

Coherent is overrated. :) You and Penny are full of awesomeness. Love that you visit those nice people weekly; what a blessing!
Digging the plane!

That plane is the bomb! Love the tongue sticking out of the "pilot"!!!

Cleaning is over rated. Just ask my kitchen floor. :)

Becky Brown said...

Oooh! Love the plane! Can't wait to see the finished product.

As for Penny? That girl! Love the video and photos.
