    So, rosa, maybe you could reference this picture as inspiration?

    that is beautiful and that’s really what I need to be looking for. I have four freaking toilets in this Hermann house, UGG. At this time I am moving a cheap plastic holder and brush between toilets in Hermann, but I don’t want that to go on forever because one’s toilet brush should be pegged to ones bath decor, right?

    I think you might find an attractive toilet brush holder at Marshall's or TJ Maxx. I used to have a nice one that matched a ceramic wastebasket. I got rid of them at some point; I forget exactly why. For a time I decided that I didn't really need a toilet brush holder in the bathroom, but now I've swung around again and have one that's in a simple, utilitarian plastic container that doesn't offend me at all, since it matches the brush just fine. It's pretty unobtrusive, and I have other decorative items that hopefully make better focal points. If one chooses to focus on my toilet brush holder, well then that's their problem, lol.
    These are my two most recent items glazed and out of the kiln. DH & I did another wheel-throwing bootcamp about a week ago, and I got so much out of it! I'm still far from expert, but definitely making progress and having a lot of fun.

    I live the box! Slab pieces fascinate me.

    Seeing posts about the creativity coming out of this pottery class rejuvenates my brain.

    I would imagine that the creative individual's brain is rejuvenated moreso!

    I made this vase recently, pretty simple with a dragonfly "twig roller" textural tool.

    nice! I do love that shade of blue. I just looked at a piece at hobby lobby in that same shade, something that looked rather hand glazed even though it probably wasn’t.

    Beautiful, rosa!! The texture and color are so pretty, and I love your arrangement of plant and felt pumpkins around and in it!

    You have definitely developed quite the talent for pottery, rosa. That is beautiful!
