A coffee set for my grandparents

I made this set for my grandparents. Quite okay how it turned out, despite that little error I made with the handles; they rest too much on the plate, but thankfully it doesn’t really disturb using the sets. The colours are not my favourites, but it’s what my grandparents chose, so I guess it’s alright.

Playing with clay

I joined a pottery class last year with friends and it has been a lot of fun. Here are some of the things I have made:

Skull bowl:

This started out as a cup xD But it turned out too big and heavy, so I made it into a bowl instead.

Blue bowl:

This was actually the first thing I made, but it got glazed and burned later than the skull bowl. It’s quite wonky, but I love it anyway.

Mug for mom:

Oh wee, this took almost 4 sessions to finish 😀 Thankfully I made it before Yule, so all good.

Ol’ Nobody and Big Wee Hag

My friend Johanna held a costume party for her birthday. The theme was Favourite Book Character. My initial thoughts were all in the lines of my beloved Marvel characters like Deadpool, Spider-man or Loki (comic books are books too!), but let’s face it, I really don’t have the physique to play a superhero. Unless I play Pandapool, but no xD

So I chose Tiffany Aching from Terry Pratchett’s “The Wee Free Men,” because firstly, it felt doable, and secondly, because I really liked that book and the characters when I read it years ago. My own getup was pretty easy… or so I thought. Finding a blue dress and getting a frying pan from the cupboard were simple but finding a suitable apron in this day and age was not simple at all. Eventually the apron turned out to be the hardest part of the entire costume. The apron I finally found was not perfect, but it did the job I guess.

I thought it would be great if I had a Nac Mac Feegle accompany me to the party, so I turned an old Kinder Surprise egg Smurf toy into one 😀

This is what the Smurf looked like, before I started cutting and gluing stuff. I shamelessly stole this pic off Ebay however, as I forgot to take my own photo 😦

I named him Ol’ Nobody 😀

Isn’t he charming?

Crivens!

Lovely sunshine, good huntin’, nice pretty flowers, and wee burdies goin’ cheep!

I haven’t put this much effort into a costume in forever. It was super fun. So I am hoping my friends will hold more costume parties in the future, so I could put together more costumes and play dress up again 😀

Skull bowl… 20. May 2018

In the morning I went to the Kalamaja Festival with hubby and Kadi. We got loads of delicious food:

Handmade pelmeni and a turnip pastry from a Finno-Ugric grandmother 😀 Shared these with hubby, he ate most of the pastry, because I am not a big fan of turnip.

A green smoothie with spinach from Ökut. So yummy!

Blueberry bagel with cream cheese. This was so delicious!

Churros! We ate most of them, before I remember to take a photo xD

Chicken paella. It was a bit cold and dry but tasted good.

Ice cream from Surf Café.

Later in the evening e went to play with clay again with Kadi and Kerttu. I wanted to make a mug but ended up making a bowl again as the sides turned out too thick for a mug. I will attempt a mug again next time xD

Boo!

Baked fish with garlic cream cheese and some salad with puffed millet and mushrooms. The puffed millet was kind of lame in the salad, but it was worth a shot I guess.

Cake and clay and grill… 13. May 2018

 Some quark pancakes.

 Coffee and Pavlova cake. I bought my mom a Pavlova cake for Mother’s Day and of course helped her to eat it :p and always like a good daughter, spilled coffee on the clean blanket we sat on xD

 ÖselBirch birch water with aronia juice. This was a nice and refreshing drink.

 Opened this pack of pineapple candy to share. It was good!

 Salad with sprouts, grilled couscous-chia seed sausages and grilled corn.

 More salad and grilled smoked wieners.

In the afternoon I went to a clay studio with Kadi and Miss K to try and make some stuff out of clay 😀 That was super fun! I accomplished a wonky bowl 😀
