Odds and Ends Tuesday
I wanted you to see the silver pine-cones I painted
yesterday. I had a idea that if I painted them and added
a string of lights they would look very pretty in a basket.
I thought they turned out really nice. I am all for easy.
My kids all left today to go see Harry Potter. My house
was such a disaster area, I stayed home. I have it looking
nice again but I have worked non stop all day. It warmed up
enough I even opened some doors and windows.
Yesterday I did some other odd crafts. I thought you might like
to see them.
I don't know if I am wild about this guy, but for a few
more days he is fine. I am fast approaching
tired of crafting mode. Today when I looked around
my house and my table tops were covered in patterns,
and stencils and paint bottles. I went that is it, I am cleaning
this house and getting it back to normal.
I made these funny looking snow men and I was going to
just put them up, but my kids liked them so much they
begged me to keep them with my glass snowman
as a body guard. I walked in one day to see one of my son's
saying " Quit staring at me" as he punched him and the snow man fell over.
He looked sheepish and said, "He was staring." :)
My daughter will come in and I will watch her moving them around
so they offer the big snow man better protection.
So I will keep them just because my kids make me laugh.
I don't know if I am wild about a very quiet house. I went outside
and let my chickens out so I could talk to them while I painted.
I moved my latest painting projects outside to the patio.
My daughter and her family are in Virginia with her in-laws and
I have her bird. He is in the garage bathroom. I open the door so
he can have someone to yell at. Since he hates me with a passion
he just screams. I figure it is a good work out.
I heard the mockingbird outside my window early this morning practicing
Cockatiel shrieks. So after the bird goes to live at his house, the mockingbird
That is all from my fence post this afternoon. I hope you are getting all your
Christmas things done that you want too this year.
So from me to you, have a blessed day.
