It may have choked Artie but it ain't gonna choke Stymie....
Am I dating myself with that quote? I was telling my girls the other day that we used to watch TV in *GASP* Black and White and there was only a couple of channels-they didn't really say anything just gave me a look trying to figure out if I was telling them a fib or not. I find it funny to see the looks on their faces when I explain old technology to them like how we didn't have cell phones, tapes that you had to turn over, walkmans and boom boxes-they are not impressed. When I said I was on a swim team as a kid the oldest says " oh you mean you swam with Plesiosaurs?" as she rolls around guffawing on the floor with her sister. Oh I couldn't wait for them to start talking when they were babies could I now? Puberty is F-U-N!
Our cherry blossoms are coming along--stitching some pretty sparkly beads in the center and then they will be attached to the brown part.
Here is why I put the quote in the title ARTICHOKES seriously my favorite food on the planet~especially the way I make them using my Dad's recipe~garlic, olive oil, parsley, oregano, lemon uuummmm drool oh I have to stop cause I work all night and I can't cook them till tomorrow.....they are heavenly and I am so happy they are back in season....this is what I will be eating for lunches ALL weekend!!
My little G2 and I stopped at the thrift store this week but not a whole lotta new discoveries except for these additions to her I love 80s fashion favorite fashion accessories-makes me want to sing.... be bop be bop a loo lop girls just wanna have fun.....
I must say I HATE nay DESPISE the mindless brain rotting shows on the Disney and Nick channels but G2 watches some of them after she earns the time and the one show called 'Shake it Up' the girls have all the cutesy outfits but they often talk about how they shop at the thrift stores for their wardrobes so at least that is helping reinforce my shop at thrift stores for clothes that are unique discussions!
G2 LOVES the 80s-paint splashed and layered looks or finding any current brand name clothes for under a $1
G1 is all about the Mad Men type vintage look or the loud 70s fashion and I mean LOUD-clothes with a crazy vibe, clothes that are the red, white and blue designs, she is so there....SIGH but it looks good on her
So to G2 finding these chunky bracelets for a dime a piece and hearing them clink around on her arms is like me finding a piece of Liberty fabric for the same price lol lol...I love thrifting!
More on the projects in process later......what will you create today?
