What I've Been Been Doing

Want to see my kitchen?

Yep, the renovation of the house is under way. Actually, the sink is gone as well as the floor now. Tomorrow, we are on our way to order a new one which, if all goes well, will be in place before Christmas.

We also had a gigantic stone fireplace that had to go. Here is a before and after:

Yes, that husband of mine is something else. Can you believe that he actually enjoys this kind of stuff? In the mean time, I have been painting any visable surface and am already tired after 5 days.

more later, got to paint...

Corey sent me a whole envelope full of fantastic schtuff (including her book, might I add) last week. I decided to spread it all over the floor and create pieces mainly from the bits she sent. What a fantastic way to work! Not only do you have new ephemera to work with, you also start playing around with other techniques, something which you may not have done with "the same old stuff you have laying around that you're used to looking at." Start trading with friends, you will be amazed at the inspiration that comes from it! Anyway, because I am in the process of a move, nothing is saved, and these pieces are listed along with others on ebay.

Stop, and enjoy the simple things

Isn't this the cutest picture you've ever seen? We have a little cut out in the wall between the kitchen and living room where Noah likes to play. He actually stood still while I ran to fetch my camera. Makes me smile just looking at it. Now that the days have become very dark and cold, we need these simple moments to put a smile on our faces.

I can hear the heavy snow pelt again my window as I write this. We have been having some major storms here in Stavanger and Fall is here with a vengence. We didn't get much snow last year so I am hoping that it falls in buckets this year.

Had a fantastic weekend in Scotland but now it is back to business. Am listing two new pieces on ebay shortly...

"Fine Autumn"

8" x 15 1/2" - 3/4" deep

Friends = Good

I do a lot of internet surfing and am constantly discovering new and exciting things. So, you can imagine my delight when I stumbled upon this fantastic little porcelin workshop in Paris, le petit atelier de Paris, just in time to share with a friend that was off to the city of lights for the weekend. And it was all good! Can you believe that I received a little souvenir from the shop she said was just about the nicest small boutique she has ever been in?

You want to see what was inside?

An espresso cup for my collection, of course!

Now I am off for a weekend away to visit an old friend in Aberdeen, Scotland. Yay me!

Happy Weekend All!
