There's not...

...mushroom, around here (yes you are allowed to groan LOL).

I was blog hopping earlier and I found some lovely cards over on Hysteri-Cal's blog. They had the cutest little mushrooms on them :o)

I like mushrooms...and I thought you all might like to see some that I made a few years ago when I used to attend ceramic art classes.

Our tutor had arranged for a teacher from the USA to come and do some all-day classes using a new range of paints. There were 3 days of classes (Fri/Sat/Sun) and Mum treated me to them as my birthday present. Day one and two consisted of decorating 4 pieces each day - they were long days and it took some doing to get the pieces finished. The Sunday was just one huge piece, a Christmas lamp shaped like a bowling ball with a snowman sat on the top (sadly it got broken last year and I don't have any pics).

The mushroom piece was also a lamp and I really love it even though the only bulbs that will fit into the globe in the centre cost an arm and a leg to buy :o(.......

I LOVE this lamp. This is exactly the sort of thing I would buy if I saw it for sale! I love anything mushrooms too (umm, what does that say about us lol)
