Mushroom Ice Cream Bowl

I'm going to make a set of Ice Cream bowls with my mushrooms doing different activities. This one is the Spring version. I'm going to make 4 total including summer, fall, and winter. They are pretty small bowls, perfect for 1-2 scoops of ice cream- which I think is great because it'll keep me from eating too much of a good/bad thing :) I was going to make 2 in one session but this one took longer than expected, about 2 hrs... I love painting pottery. It's so relaxing.

Anyway, I wonder if this is something that I should make a few of for the etsy shop? For some reason, this is the only medium so far that I've found where I like painting... and it's a nice change of pace from sewing, knitting, and crocheting.

Oh, and yesterday was the 100th Birthday of the Santa Monica Pier. They haven't been doing fireworks at the pier for a long time, but last night they got them out. It was a bit unfortunate though because they were very smoky. I'm not sure whether it was the lack of wind or whether they didn't space them out correctly or maybe the timing was off. But I did get one shot that I just love and have to share :)

I love your ice cream bowl!!! I'm sorry I've been nonexistent for months! But I'm back and excited for you and your etsy venture. The funny thing is that I've been wanting to paint pottery lately too... something's in the air!
