Well today didn't go quite as I had planned. I didn't get to any of the artwork that I wanted to work on. ( Boo-hoo! ), instead I ended up picking up a huge amount of gum balls from the absolutely wonderful ( NOT! ) Sweet Gum tree that is in my yard. Does any one know how to make them quit producing those extremely annoying gum balls? Years ago I remember someone telling how how to do it, but at the time I did not have a Sweet Gum tree, and therefore did not need to know how to make them stop producing them. So if ANYONE could help me, I sure would appreciate it,
Has anyone seen the movie "Clash of the Titans"? Well I saw it for the second time... my other wonderful Grandson wanted to see it. I watch very, very few movies more than one time. But for my Grandsons I would do just about anything.
A new friend of mine, Marilyn (Dolls etc) sent me a gift the other day...... something I have always wanted, from when I was a child. And now I have one. It's a doll house! A one room cottage that I am so exited to be able to put together, paint, and decorate. Another friend of mine gave me some doll house furniture (sorry I have not taken pictures of the doll house or the furniture yet) when I told her that Marilyn was sending me a doll house.
These are coffee cups that I picked up at the thrift shop for 10 cents each because they match my kitchen really well. Once I got home I noticed that they were scratched in a few places, so I took a white paint pen and made polka-dots to hide the scratches, then I trimmed the top with black, and also used the black to make polka-dots on the handles. I love them now even more! Aren't they cute!
I have not yet gotten all the packages together for my winners. I am so sorry for the delay. It's been one thing after another, and tomorrow morning I have to go to the dentist, oh what fun! Not! By the time they arrive they will really be a surprise.... :-)
Well folks it is after mid-night and I am falling asleep here at the comptuer. So I am heading to bed.
