I've been baking!

I've been baking! Thought I'd get creative in the kitchen for fathers day. Yesterday we had my parents and my nan round for dinner and cake to celebrate fathers day, and an early celebration for my mums birthday which is tomorrow.

It's cute don't you think! My Dad is big time into his allotment so it was easy to choose a theme. Not sure if i was a bit of a scrooge only baking one cake for two celebrations but there is only so much cake you can eat in a day. We're off out for dinner to celebrate mums birthday so we don't really need two cakes...do we.., a piece of chocolate sponge with ice cream for pudding will do just fine!
This is the first potato crop from Dad's allotment, there sure is going to be a lot of veg to be eaten soon. Here is my Dad, the first family member to be featured on my blog! Hi Dad.

I've not lost sight of the real task in hand. My ceramics. Just finished these samples of brooches and magnets for the geteurofied sampler boxes. The summer boxes are on sale now if you fancy buying one you can do so on etsy here. My items won't feature until the August sampler box.

Mini break in Cornwall

As you'll see from the previous post we've been in Cornwall. The weather was wonderful and it was great to catch up with friends, do a bit of shopping, play crazy golf and get some sun, sea and sand. Here are a few photos, the first is of the house we stayed in which you can see in the distance if you look closely. The second is of a fantastic beach we walked to for a very cold swim.

Lamledra House

Hemmick beach

A few shells i collected from Hemmick, wasn't sure why but i liked the holes in them.

I had this frame so I've arranged them in size order in it and once the glue has dried it'll be on the wall where ever i can find space.

latest purchase - toucan light

Look what i bought! Isn't it fab, a retro toucan light. We've been away in Cornwall and i found this little lovely in a charity shop. I love it, it's so cute and useful too.

Open Studios

Just a little reminder that i will be having an open studio this Saturday 6th June and Sunday 7th June as part of Caversham Open Studios. I'll be at venue 12. see map or COS blog for further details.

There will also be a make and take opportunity for children (and adults) who might want to make a little something out of clay. There will be the option to take it away on the day or collect it at a later date after it has been fired.

Hope some of you can join me.
