Pottery and Dating

Yesterday was Mike's day off for this week, so we took a little trip to The Pottery Place in Huntington. It is something that we have talked about doing for a long time, but simply have never gotten around to! We decided that yesterday was going to be the day we made it happen, and we had such a blast!

The first thing we did was choose our pieces to paint.
Is anyone shocked that Mike chose a coffee mug?? :)

I chose to paint a small plate to use as a decoration for our dining room (which is decorated in coffee).
After choosing our pieces, I had to draw the design on mine before beginning to paint! Don't look too closely...I'm not the greatest artist.

We then selected our paint colors, and we were ready to begin the real fun of painting!

This is my almost- finished project! The painting was completed but they still have to fire it, so we have to go back in a week to pick up our pieces.
After painting, Mike decided that he wanted to paint some words on his cup.
I think he did a great job! His new coffee mug reads "Soli Deo Gloria".

We truly had an amazing day together! It has been a while since we've had a "real" date, and this one was perfect!
