Fresh new glazes and a daily dose of bunny

I've been mixing up some new glazes and here are two that I tested last week. The first is what I call Celery. It's a fresh, bright, light green - I am so please with the way it came out! Sometimes I will only test a new glaze on a few pieces just in case it isn't quite what I was hoping for. That way I won't be stuck with a zillion ugly pieces. But this time I had a feeling it was going to be just right so I glazed everything in sight. Thankfully I am thrilled with the color and won't have to tweak the recipe at all. Yay!

The second color (below) is a lovely gray. I still haven't come up with a good name for it yet - any suggestions? It's a wonderful neutral color that goes great with just about any color you put next to it. I will tweak the recipe just a little for the next batch but it will be basically the same - just a little more transparent.


I will be listing most of these components in my Extra shop during the week. If you see anything you want just drop me an email (naneliz2@yahoo.com) and I will reserve it for you. :)

Discus hoops in Celery. They can be found here.

And lastly, here is your daily does of bunny. This is Emma's new favorite place to perch. She went into a room that has stacks of boxes filled with fabric, climbed to the highest one and made herself a lovely little nest surrounded by old stuffed animals. Isn't she sweet?

Love the bunny - who can't smile after a picture like that?

I was kinda thinking Misty for the grey glaze - misty days are kinda grey, but it's not a gloomy sounding word...

Love that Celery glaze! For the grey one how about Stone or Granite Grey? That's what I immediately think of. Emma is adorable!

LOVE the celery pieces, right up my street.

for the gorgeous grey, I had 'Chloe' because I had a cat called that whose coat was that fantastic grey colour. Or, in the pet vibe, Emma, because she has that colour too!
