Our lunch today consisted of a celebratory home made sub with a flag topper! We posed the sandwich with our most current decoration.
My daughter likes to purtify things. My husband is a carpenter and he brings home a lot of unwanted items and Margaret immediately starts thinking of ways to make them feel loved and useful again.
She has had this old window for several months now and has had a plan for it. Just this week she was able to complete it. She decoupaged (one of her favorite things to do) a poster board with pages from an old book and then added some extra pictures and draped a little bitty garland over it and tada, you have a lovely wall hanging. The fun thing is that when the mood hits she can change the poster board to another theme or old family pictures in each frame or old quilt blocks, or .....well you get the idea.
Chris has brought home more than his fair share of old unloved toilets.....and he sits them out back til they get thrown out or find a new home. Sometimes folks just need an old toilet for some reason. Right now we have THREE lovely toilets sitting out back. They are lined up in a majestic row and the one in the middle is PINK. It is as pink as a toilet can get. She has already laid claim to all three, especially the pink one, to plant flowers in next spring. I know that sounds goofy to some folks, but I just betcha she will make them look nice. I can imagine wave petunias flowing out of the openings.
