Splashy Art, Pottery and Tile

Some years ago my sister-in-law made the girls (there were three at the time) a dessert bowl each, hand painted with their names on. Somehow or other, Denver (the menace as she is affectionately nicknamed some days) managed to smash Kyla's bowl. Fast forward seven or so years and we now have one extra daughter and two missing bowls. So when a coupon for a discount trip to Splashy came up, we jumped at it. Last Friday was 'paint day'. It's going to be two weeks till the finished goods are being put to use, but here's a sneak peek :-)

Sunshine and Chalk


The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
