Teacup Art

Teacup art

The BF broke his tea-cup a couple of months ago and asked if I wanted the pieces. It broke in a perfect line down the middle, which is kind of neat, so I kept it.

I’ve been meaning to put each half in a separate square frame, but I couldn’t find small square frames that I liked. Then I thought of a grand idea of positioning them so that one was upright and the other was above it pouring liquid into it, and I could water-color the liquid. Then I remembered I couldn’t paint.

So I ended up just gluing one on top of the other on some card stock I bought at the art store. I think it brightens up our bathroom hallway. At least it’s not so drab anymore.

I finally finished the cowl I had started last winter with some yarn the BF got me for Valentine’s Day. My idea was to have something to keep my neck warm while riding my bike in cold weather, but a scarf seemed too dangerous because it could fly off or get stuck in the wheels. I used a lot more yarn than I thought for this, but now it also doubles as a hood!

New Rat Cage

My new rat cage
This is my new rat cage from Martin’s Cages. As you can see, there aren’t any rats in there. We’re not getting them until Friday night. It’s going to be a long week! I made some hammocks for the rats this weekend in preparation.

I first made the blue one on the right, which has a pocket they can crawl into but then I realized it’s going to be summer soon and they might not want something so warm. That’s when I made the bigger brown on on the left which is just a regular hammock they can lie on.

The people at Martin’s Cages gave really good customer service. Paypal had messed up my shipping address, so I had to email Martin’s Cages to inform them and they got on top of it quickly. Then a few days later, I ordered a travel cage from them and they remembered that I had ordered a rat cage before and asked if I wanted them to modify the travel cage so that smaller rats wouldn’t be able to slip through the wires. I wish all places had customer service like that.
