pick up the paintbrush!
This picture should be labeled "Before", since it will be changing over the next few days into a finished serving platter for Brita and Ben. Let me explain--at Saturday's bridal shower, I brought along an unpainted pottery platter and all the guests (well, anybody who chose to participate) contributed a squiggle or a flower or initials in one of the squares. This morning I took it back to the Paint Pot in Plymouth and finished up by painting over the drawn lines. Now it will be glazed and fired and transformed into a wonderful memento with some practical use. It was a fun project for the shower guests and something for Brita to always remember. The Paint Pot was a great little shop and workspace, giving me the tips and advice and paints that I needed to make this project successful. Thanks!
