What do Nibblers and parties in Texas have in common?

Day 64

HUH?! What?! Oh nothing I just couldn't think of anything to put in the title....

This post was supposed to be posted last night but I literally fell asleep at the laptop......did you set your clocks forward? I swear every time I do it I want to rebel and keep my clocks the same in protest but then I would be hour late for everything so I have caved to peer pressure and changed the times in my battery powered wall clock the fact that our phones and computers change automatically will keep me honest I suppose.

Now on to my post....when I was thrifting this past week I found a bag of stuff, just little doohickeys and things that I just had to include have even though the bag looked like trash and my girls were giving me the eyeball 'mom you are crazy' look. But I love little stuff like this to be able to add to my artwork! This particular bag of stuff was all party goodies and it just cracked me up because I could imagine this Texas woman and her husband throwing parties for their friends....high class, finger foods, glasses clinking, ten gallon hats, lots of bling, full bar with swizzle sticks for all the drinks signifying their love for the 'Don't Mess with Texas' state (seriously this is the name of their litter campaign but when I first moved there I thought it was a threat to us outsiders) perhaps this party was celebrating Alamo Day or something....

or it could have been just a fun summer tiki party complete with little umbrellas and pears in the drinks.......margarita anyone? Oh yes I can see them dancing now 'you put the lime in the coconut and drink it all up' bunny hopping their way across the lawn.....

and look at these funky gift wrapping papers that were leftover from wrapping so many presents for so many parties--there is a paper for everyone's taste here.....oh these papers are just divine I must do something special with them....

And here is a preview of a party of my own I am throwing....the monthly Momtasterrific Craftery night where we will be making little rabbits I call (ominous loud booming voice) Nibbler Bunnies.... more cute previews later as it gets closer (in April we are making May Flowers)

More later as I post todays post today....and much love to friends from Texas who just moved to New Mexico....are you sure you didn't clean out your closet when you moved here? lol lol
