(Aside : I just got a Samsung Galaxy S4 a couple of days ago, so I am trying to be a cool mom now, installing some fun apps and signing up for Instagram and such. My old phone was a Blackberry, and I had almost no apps, and was hopeless at even sync'ing up contacts and such. But with the new phone, I am potentially able to take photos, and post them directly to my blog. Or at least, that was the hope when I downloaded the Blogger app for Android. But after letting me type in a full paragraph (which is painful for me, using a virtual keyboard now), and figuring out how to add my photo, it gave me some obscure upload error. I then checked the reviews for the app, and found many others complaining about it also, so promptly deleted it. So here I am, back at my computer, but at least will pull the photos from my new Dropbox, rather than cable and transfer them - that's pretty cool.)
I am still trying to find homes for all the ceramic items from my first course, before I start hauling more home from my second course. I was happy to find homes for 2 more pieces, leaving only 4 more waiting on my livingroom windowsill for permanent homes.
item #18 from my First Course) will fill in - at least temporarily until I can make another cup with more suitable colours.
I was washing dishes a couple of days ago, when I realized that the sink and tiles would stay cleaner - and drier - if it didn't have the scrubbers and lid from the garburator sitting directly on it. So I put my little cup with the playing card suits (item #9 from my First Course) to use. I like it, and think it fits the colour scheme fairly well - browns to match the tiles, and the green/blue to match the scrubber.
