Yes, Christmas has not only 'spewed' all over my house, but it has in fact 'spewed' all over the front yard too.
Oh dont be grossed out by the 'spewed' thing will you. I pinched that expression from my sweet pal Jules @ Whimsical Notions, Jules has such a way with words....she cracks me up ALWAYS and i love that Christmas has SPEWED all over her house!
Has christmas spewed all over your place too then?? Go on, admit it and then say it out loud with me! CHRISTMAS SPEW! HAHAHA.
So anyway...i digress...whats unusual about that....? Nothin'.
This year i had the idea to draw, cut and paint large wooden christmas cut outs to sell. So off i tootled, pencil, jigsaw (well Shane did that part for me) and brushes in hand. Oh geez the neighbours must have loved me...NOT...not only was there noise from the jigsaw but i tend to curse quite loudly when things don't go as i see them in my head (yeah, i can admit it, i swear my head off).
And a big HURRAH and THANKS BABE to my hubbs who kept coming home from work to me saying "Can you cut another snowman for me...can you cut another reindeer for me..?"
He's a good egg that fella of mine *wink*
So here's just a few on my front yard right now. They are all glittery and gorgeous!
Ok i couldnt help myself...i HAD to do a PINK Reindeer! I HAD TO i tell you!
A couple of mischevious lookin fellas..heehee.
I had more but some have already found new homes and silly me didn't think to take photos first (the blonde hair strikes again).
Sam of course is totally hysterical that i am selling these...WHY DO YOU HAVE TO SELL EVERYTHING?? he asked me. I think I'm gonna have to watch and make sure he's not outside telling potential customers to GO AWAY, DON'T BUY OUR STUFF ! Seriously he would do that...he has a mind all of his own that boy. Love that kid!
Oh well if the last few don't sell then i guess we have more for our display!
On another note today, something that rhymes with CHRISTMAS TREE is MUMS CROOK KNEE(say it out loud, it rhymes, see.) My mummsky is in hospital today having a full knee replacemnt! EEEKSSS! I'm off to see her soon and take her a nice bowl of fresh fruit salad and some Country Home Ideas magazines to flick through (so she doesn't have to resort to watching the dreaded soapies on TV..LOL)ooops no offence to anyone who watches them..i just know my mum doesn't like them.
Tomorrow if shes feeling better i plan to bake some scones and take some up there with some fresh cream and jam so her and her 'roomie' (who is having the same surgery today as well) can feel a bit spoilt.Oh i just may have to eat one or two myself....!!
So if you could send some well wishes this way for my lovely mum im sure she'd appreciate it. Its gonna be a looong and painful road ahead for her. Thankfully i can be there to help her out each day at home while she recovers.
Okies im off to make fruit salad now!
oooh and dinner too i think, b4 i go. Mmmm good weather for casserole im thinking....YEP !
Whatcha having for dinner tonight girlies?
Love n Pink Kisses,
