First off, I just have to say, that the new issue
of Romantic Country featuring Janet of
Shabbyfufu fame, has caused no end of unrest
in my home! I was all set to take a break and
enjoy...when Little Mr. decided that he had first
dibs on it...
Then Little Missy took matters into her own hands,
uh paws, to disabuse him of such an idea...
A fortuitous "shake" of the cat food bag brought
everyone back to their senses!
I just wanted Janet to know that neither man, nor
beast can resist the lure of her fabulous home!
So, like I said before, I was at Michael's the
weekend before last... and like a meme I took
the little hand basket instead of the cart...what
was I thinking???? Everything was 5000%
off, so my basket was instantaniously rendered
microscopic! (But I was not about to push around
on of those carts that has a lightening rod attached
to it!...Hey! I had no makeup on...I know how to
humiliated myself...I don't need Michael's and
their shopping carts with phone poles attached
to help me do it!)
I was ok...I had way too many things and looked
like the human version of the Beverly Hillbillies
truck, but I was out of there...on my way to the
check stand when...yah, well, the best laid plans
of mice & men, huh? I just don't think when that
line was written, it took into account the need to
ditch a guy you hadn't seen since high school...
vanity thy name is ME!
So, I am slithering and skulking and ok, ok, I
admit it, commando crawling down darkened
clearance aisles, to avoid this guy, who, let's
face it, probably doesn't remember what he
ate that morning, let alone me from many
moons ago(he was never the sharpest knife
in the drawer!) but I couldn't take that chance!
(I'd love to see the security camera footage!)
All this to say, that while making a total
weenie of myself, I found these really
groovy wooden applique things on sale! I
took one, then that "hmmmmmmmm..."
feeling hit me, and I knew that I needed
more of them 'cuz they could be something
(sorry...I wanted to show a "before" but
the packaging was so boring that I had
to jazz it up a bit).
Naturally, I painted it pink...and went on
I added the rhinestone crown & glitter accents
to make this cute little plaque.
But, a little package of tissues caught my
eye ...hmmm...cute design, what can I do
with that??? I wanted to decoupage a flower
pot, but the tissue was too small.
So, I got a brilliant idea...
I decoupaged another plaque!
I love how it turned out, although I have
no idea what to use it for...but I will think
of something... IDEAS?? And I have
others that I think I will decoupage too!
Again, I will end with Kari & Kijsa's tribute,
The Fabulous Flag Flying Fourth!!!!!!
Forever in PEACE may She wave!
