This week I had no trouble in finding something to Show and Tell, in fact I have two!
First, I promised to share the results of our pottery painting evening at Eden Pottery. I really enjoyed the evening with friends from church. It was great “crack” as we say here (nothing to do with illegal drugs!) and the supper provided was delicious. I was even more impressed when I saw how well our items turned out after the glazing process.
Of course, their workshop is surrounded by beautiful pieces already decorated to inspire you, or even to purchase!
There were an amazing array of sponges to use for our designs, as well as a wide range of colours, however I specifically asked for the shade of blue to match my new kitchen. I thought it needed another colour to add to the design, and one of the helpful members of staff suggested using a chocolate brown.
My SECOND show and tell, is some new jewellery pieces I created to match an outfit I am wearing to a charity dinner dance tomorrow night. The invite said “Not formal, but dress to impress!” so I hope it is ok to be wearing a dressy top and black trousers.
I bought the beads from 3 different bead shops, but the colours came together really well. I am trying to convince that all this bead expenditure it actually saving him money, as I would have been looking to buy something to match the top instead!
For more of my jewellery, visit my new Etsy shop! Lots more items will be there soon.

Finally, a digital scrapbooking layout of a photo I took at our Toddler Group last week. I was waiting to get permission from her mum to put it online.
