Collected some succulents out walking today and popped them into pots. The pots don't have holes in the bottom, so will have to be careful not to over water. But succulents don't like too much water anyway.

They've found a home on the window sill at home

Along with my cup of tea. It's defnitely an inside cup of tea day, with that cold wind.

Small Pieces

Last weekend I dropped off a small selection of my cups at Small Pieces, a retail venture from the folks at Northcote Pottery.

Available are the white as well as the speckled cups for $20 each. Perfect for a cuppa!

Perils of International Shipping

A friend in the US, who does a bit of painting, asked me to make a set of small bowls for mixing paints etc. I've recently done a set of cups for his family (with stamps with the initials of each of the family members) and had complete success sending things by mail.

So with the little bowls complete I sent them off, bubble wrapped and stacked in a couple of packing tubes.

Whilst the cups travelled well, it seems the small bowls did not share the same robustness.

Sadly some bit the dust on the way over, arriving in various sized shards, a little like an archelogical dig.

Here are the casualities...

Happily some survived

But despite my little bowls now being on the other side of the planet... I've been put off international shipping for awhile... until I've found a failure proof method of packing!
