Advent 2017 :: Day 10

Remember I mentioned a couple of weeks ago I was off painting china with a group of friends... okay, probably not! It was a fun evening where we got to choose our unglazed pieces of china and then set to decorating them with various glazes using stencils and masks, sponges and brushes. There was wine and birthday cake and then we went home and forgot all about them, leaving them at the shop to be fired. So what a lovely surprise to get mine back this week and discover it looked like this!


A lovey friend on Instagram described it as mid century modern with a contemporary twist. Really? Like I planned that! But whatever it is I quite like it and will be happy to use it this Christmas along with the rest of my small but growing collection of festive china. And as a bonus, painting china is on my sixty x sixty list.


Although it seems a shame to cover it up... perhaps just a few artfully placed mince pies?


Do you have festive china?

  4. It's been so long since I logged onto Blogger to catch up that my password expired!! The first thing I see is you going for the advent challenge for another year. You have such stamina my friend. How do you manage it? I'm too busy working in some sketchbook someone sent me to take any time off for Christmas festivities..... (only kidding....) x
