Her hearts struck me so deeply that I actually implemented secret hearts onto her dining room chairs when I reupholstered them HERE.
And I decided I wanted to start a heart collection......................
Hmmmm - that was back in April I believe.
We are now in August I believe.
Time to start that collection I believe.
Tonight I had 3.48 minutes to spare and decided to fill them making this
I used a wire hanger from the cleaners ( they use the cheapest ones imaginable so they're really easy to bend)
Don't worry about it not being a perfect heart shape - I think hearts are perfect when they're imperfect
I purchased these flowers ( plastic ) from the dollar store for Easter
and I simply snipped small bunches that I could wrap around the hanger......
and voila - mon premiere COEUR.................
This really did not take more than the 3.48 minutes I had to spare..................
And the cost was under 2.00 -
Ahhhh a collection after my own heart....................
The Squirrel saga continues as well - you can read part one HERE
If you don't read the first part - this will make no sense at all..................
So I was feeling kind of confident that we'd seen the last of the squirrels in our house - until I walked by the living room last night and saw this..............
Suzan says - there's STILL a squirrel in the house
John says - don't be ridiculous
Suzan says - there's a piece of bread on the coffee table in the living room John - and it wasn't there earlier
John says - yeah I saw it - you probably had a sandwich and left what you couldn't eat
HE IS NOT JOKING - HE IS DEAD SERIOUS - THOSE OF YOU WHO FOLLOW KNOW THIS, RIGHT???
Suzan says - You've got to be kidding me?
John says - Well you were looking all over the house for your sunglasses today - and they were right on you in your jean jacket pocket - so who knows - you probably left the bread on the table and you've forgotten all about it.
Suzan screams - I DO NOT EAT SANDWICHES THAT WAY - CAN YOU PLEASE GET UP AND LOOK FOR THE SQUIRREL???
John yells - THERE'S NO SQUIRREL IN THE HOUSE - WE WOULD HAVE HEARD IT!!!!!!!!!
I'm soooo mad - really - I am so mad at this guy tonight -
First of all who walks by bread like that on a table and just keeps walking?
Why didn't he clean it up?
And secondly how ridiculous is it to just assume I was eating a sandwich - decided I'd had enough - and tossed it on to the table like that?
Does he think I eat like a savage - with pieces of bread flying out of my mouth - and then just leave everything there like that?
Maybe from now on when I eat supper I'll just toss the chicken bones all over the floor like they did in the medieval ages too.
I mean really - come on - if you saw that on the table - and you knew squirrels had been in the house yesterday - would you just assume your better half had been having a snack.......
So as I'm typing up this post - there's probably a squirrel looking over my shoulder - I'm going to have a heart attack - I swear to God - so my HEART post may be bizarrely appropriate!!!
I'm even afraid of them when they're door stoppers !!!!!!!!!
Which is why I painted the above one ( you can read about that HERE - just so you know I REALLY am afraid of squirrels................
I have to finish a dresser and I'm too numb to do it - what if a frightened squirrel is hiding in one of the drawers????
Heart attack I yell you - this situation is a heart attack waiting to happen!!!
Now excuse me - think I'm going to finish that sandwich now.................
If you're new to my blog - GOD LOVE YOU - that's all I can say - please don't run away in fear - sometimes this blog is perfectly normal ( not often - but sometimes it most definitely is )
My life eerily ( very very eerily ) resembles this movie - click on it - watch it till the end - because I have a horrifying feeling that will be me tomorrow - with a squirrel instead of a raccoon.
And I just have to tell you how Jill from Sew a Fine Seam responded to this conversation in a private email
Oooooh I hate it when men act like that! Surely he knows you well enough to know you wouldn’t leave your sandwich like that! Ugh L Oh I hope it jumps in bed with him!
Often the emails I get are 10 times funnier than the post itself LMHO...........................
Have a great day all!!!
and Sammy the Squirrel.
