You gotta jump, shake, shimmy them out!
Here’s a fun game to play. Grab a friend and run down a hill while jumping and trying to keep your low-rise pants from falling off. We were trying to get a shot with us up in the air, maybe even with our heels kicking to the side but that didn’t work at all. Instead we got this photo where we look like we are breaking out in some 8o’s dance routine. Does Bethany not look like she is shimmying?
That was fun. Especially while other mothers in the park looked on and our kids fell off the eight-foot-tall playground equipment. Just kidding. Nobody fell off anything.
Next up we have some cat plates that I painted ages ago and have just now put in my shop. I’m selling them together but maybe that’s too expensive. If anyone wants to buy just one, email me and maybe I’ll break up the set. I’m thinking of painting a few more in other colors.
I love painting when I come to visit Bethany. They know me at her local pottery-painting studio and I think that’s awesome.
I’ve got a few dishes in the works right now. This oval plate is another SAJ in Paris scene. It says “I love Paris in the Springtime” on the back but true to my one-side-of-my-brain-is-turned-off-while-the-other-is-working-in-overdrive habits, I painted “I love Paris in thIS Springtime.” Ugh. I hate it when I do that and I do it ALL the time. Thankfully I was able to scrape it off with a handy dandy paperclip and all is well. Besides plates like this are more fun with stories anyway, don’t you think? At least that’s what we told Angella when I smudged up her mug.
And this bowl is SOLD! I love it when that happens. Thank you, LV Gurl!
That’s all for tonight! I have to rush off and go taste some Bruleed Lemon Bars! Swoon!
Oh, you just oooze talent Madame Ponnay! All your pieces are beeyootiful. Congrats on the quick sale!
I was thrilled just to get there in time! You know I love your birds-in-trees.
I love the bowl, so beautiful! The plates are too cute.
I so want to buy that plate from you! I love love love Paris anytime! :)
I really really really love that photo of you two!! It’s classic – and DEFINITELY a framer :)
love the bowls! I have that gabba gabba song in my head now-
I absolutely love your style of illustrating!
Have you made any plates with Bug yet? I was thinking of doing something like this myself with my 3 year old this summer and wondered how it would go…
oh! the tree bowl is lovely…
Wow, nice work. I will have to stop back & see what I want to buy :-)
BTW, your blog was mentioned as one of my 7 favorite blogs I’ve run into so far this week! Check it out at Bloggers Connect in the comment section:
Seriously. Could you BE any more talented??
You two are so cute together. I love that two of my favorite bloggers are pals.
I smile every morning when I finish my coffee and see your mark (and also, the lame heart I drew). :)
I love that bowl with the trees and birds. If you decide to make more like that one, I would love to buy one/some (depending on the cost). Alison

I *love* the Paris plate – I wish I were crafty like that!
Aww you guys have all the fun ;).
Now I have the Yo Gabba Gabba song stuck in my head …. let’s get the sillie’s out!
My mother-in-law is decorating with Parisan items and your whimsical plate would be a perfect addition. It’s adorable.
