What do you like to do to de-stress? Watch t.v.? Eat? Cook? Scream? Clean? Take a bath? I like to do just about all of those things. But one of my favorite things to do is paint pottery.
While Hubby and I were window shopping one weekend, well, I was window shopping and he was looking at his watch, we found this cute little place called The Bare Bowl. We walked inside and didn't leave until 5 hours later. Yes, I have a husband who is creative and enjoys artistic things, so he didn't mind painting pottery with me.
I was so excited about this place, I went home and told all my friends about it. And so began the endless visits to The Bare Bowl. Every couple of months, a few of us go spend the day being creative and de-stressing. Today was one of those days. I wanted to share some photos with you. There are several, but keep looking, it's worth it.
One of the things I love about The Bare Bowl is that their prices are all inclusive. So if you see a $10 price tag, that includes the cost of the pottery, the paint, the firing, and you can stay as long as you want. A lot of places charge a separate fee for all of those things. It's so affordable!
I love this place. The staff is so friendly too. They have great ideas and are willing to help you out, you know, if you're *ahem* not so creative.
And no, I'm not getting paid for this advertisement. It's just how I feel. However, if someone wanted to pay me...
Some cute pottery on display.
Ok, look at what they do with baby hands and feet here. Notice the lion up on the left? That's a hand. Here's another:
That tractor is a foot! Ah! Isn't that so cute?!
Here's what I painted. It's not fired yet, so this is the before picture. All of the smudging on the words will burn off and the end result will be a nice, shiny, piece of art. Well, "art" as in amateur painted pottery. That's as artsy as I get.
So that's what I spent the day doing. And did I mention that there is a delicious little coffee shop right next door? Did I also mention that I love coffee? It was a great day with coffee, friends, and pottery. It doesn't get any better that that...
Thanks for stopping by,
