The Olympic Rings in Pottery

If you combine a garage full of West German pottery with the London Olympics, and a free afternoon… what do you get?

Aidan was taking the pictures so I got the posing duty. I won’t go into detail, but suffice it to say, that my plan of just lying the pieces of pottery into circles was quickly vetoed by Aidan. Before I knew it, he’d got his bamboo cane and string out to measure out the circles properly.

Team GB seem to be picking up the pace – and the medals – in the Olympics in the last couple of days. Yesterday, although I was gutted for Victoria Pendleton and Jess Varnish, I was very pleased for the Men’s team. Not just a gold medal but another World Record?! Brilliant!

We’re off to watch British Sea Power at the Ruby Lounge tonight, then off to Southport for another wedding tomorrow; so not so much Olympics watching for me for the next couple of days.

    from what I understand the Olympic logo police will be around to your garden and make you dismantle the display.

      He made a compass out of sticks and string… Aren’t you supposed to be on your way to Spain?? x

    I like the way your minds work – and of course you make me yearn for a chance to come buy more pottery

    I just have to share this super clever post by the guys of Little Owl Ski.
    I love how even the W/German pottery are fully getting into the spirit of the London Olympic games!
