A Cherished Monday

Made a wonderful memory with my Granddaughter and enjoyed every minute of it.  I had the best time spending the morning with my little Lou Lou Bell, (my nickname for her) Right away the dolls, stroller, cradle, and an American Girl rocking horse, that I bought at a rummage sale, were set up all over my living room.

After playing baby dolls, time for a craft project.  On Monday mornings, Alpaca Pottery and Art Studio hosts a Mommy & Me Reading and Pottery event. Each week a book is read to the children, and they paint a piece of pottery that goes along with the theme of the book.  This weeks story: If You Give A Pig A Pancake, by Laura Numeroff. Can you guess what the pottery piece was?  A PIG!

All the little piggies waiting to be claimed by the artists.

Ready to paint.

The artist hard at work painting the perfect pig.

Adding purple polka spots and of course, she needed blue eyes.

The perfect little piggy, painted by my sweet Lou Lou Belle.

We will pick this little piggy up next week after it is fired and put it in a place of honor.


  1. What a great program to offer! Very smart business idea. And the little piggy is cute, too.
