When I learned you can have M & M's made to say anything you want I thought that was such a neat idea. But - what could I put on them? Then it occurred to me "Seldom Inn", the name I christened our Florida home.
And I chose magenta and purple as these are 2 of the colors in my decor there.
I have a plane ticket to Florida for tomorrow morning.
I have decided to remain in Wisconsin until after my show.
Yes, it's cold, wet and unpredictable right now in Wisconsin.
And it is warm in Florida. Why would anyone make such a decision????
Well, if I go to Florida for 3 weeks, returning for my show opening January 25th the weather here is going to be very hard to take. If I stay here until after the opening I'll be conditioned to the weather and I will be able to tolerate it. So that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
BOUDOIR DOLL IN THE PINK!!!!
Here is one a dolls made from milk filters from the 50's. I asked my Quilt Art friends if any one had a picture and as usual they came through with several photos, directions to make them and even a place to buy the supplies! I'm not going to start making them. If you recognize this you probably were around in that time period. It all started when a friend and I were trying to out do each other with the tackiest thing we could think of. At the time my mom made these we thought they were beautiful and were thrilled to have one. Fast forward to the 21st century and they rate right up near the top as tacky! I have found several mail lists where these are discussed with fondness and people still are making there evidently. What would your pick be as the tackiest thing you could think of or have?
