My pottery creations on and off the wheel.

Somebody wants the little one to come out and play!

UPDATE: the little one is growing fast, starting to see the fluffy feet now. Despite the “help” from Baxter though i probably shouldn’t have started the game “help me feed the chook chooks baby” 😉

I’m in love again!


I brought home the completed pottery beagle and grumpy pig from the pottery club today. I am in love with them, Baxter took a bit longer.

I couldn’t resist getting the camera out for the introductions to his new pack 🙂

Meet Buttercup!

With all that grass on both sides of the fence something was missing. So last night I painted buttercup the Cow 🙂  Don’t you think she looks right at home, all she needs now are some painted buttercups.


I was a bit worried it wouldn’t look like an actual cow, it must do because my poor dog Baxter went berserk at the new addition to the family. I wasn’t expecting that!

Finished at last…it’s only been a year!

Last year I made the run because I felt sorry for the chooks being cooped up in their little cage. This year I have finally finished it the way I wanted.  They now have a little sliding door so they can now get from their original cage with the nesting boxes, to the bigger outside run by themselves. I have dug in some bricks to stop them visiting the neighbours, a door for me to get in without Baxter, netting so I don’t need to cut their wings anymore, their favourite tree stump and a roosting tree and the original door to the outside so I can let them out to free range too.  Done and dusted, oh that reminds me they need a dust bath next!


Perspex and tongue and groove I had lying around, and a little bit at the bottom to stop it falling through.


Bit of string and a plastic thingy to pull it up.


Bricks to stop the little wheels from sinking.


Cutting it from inside the run, Baxter wondering what do now?


New home finished yay 🙂


Here they come!

Why can't i get in!

Why can’t I get in yet!

Open sesame!
