Of course I have to change up the decorations in the house (duh – lol). But thought I would just ‘enhance’ Book Bear and the other two cute little Bearpaw Carving bears that I brought home.
As I was adding the clear matte sealer to the two bears (they were unfinished), as well as adding some red felt to their ‘bottoms’ (hee hee), I also went ahead and created a silly little craft. Paint mixer wooden flag. Kathy & Monette asked if I got the idea from Pinterest (ironically not this time), but did see one after I made mine. Luckily Michael had to go to Home Depot for more Pod (his mini trailer) items and I tagged along to get some mosquito repellant plants for the house. While I was there, I thought about the paint mixer craft and glad to see they had the 5 gallon bucket mixers – so I happily grabbed twelve of them. (I don’t ASK for them, I just take what I want, smile at the staff and walk away). HA
But I did spend about $50 on some silly plants and planting mix anyways… all wonderful smelling ones: gardenia, lavender, basil, marigold and rosemary.
So here is the finished craft project and some of my SILLY Summer and Fourth of July decorations around the house…
Kathy, I used some of ‘meat cleaver hooks’ to put the Bearpaw Carving sign up (for now) – lol. And of course you gotta have MORE COWBELL…
Oh but I DID get to enjoy a WONDERFUL sunny day with my sweet friend Erica yesterday at her new place (on Alki) and loved taking a few pictures for some ideas for Little House. I heard Peter ask her to go for a bike ride (as I was leaving) and I came home and made Michael take a walk with me (he was dealing with some work stress) so afterwards I donned my cute MOOSE apron (thank you Kathy – Bearpaw item) and he snapped a photo – but as you (and he, Kathy & Monette) pointed out, I looked like I was ONLY wearing the apron. HA HA No, but it was amusing.
Now to go clean and work on my next craft/prop projects – I’m already looking at the Halloween props (it will be my ANNUAL event)!
