Well - It was predicted and it came............
Pretty to see, but I will admire it from inside.
I have no intentions of getting out in this weather, so thought I would do something constructive.
First Project : Finish going thru Christmas decorations before putting the last of them in storage. Found some ornaments that are looking past their prime - toss in bag for trash.
Faux greenery with faux snow on it that sheds all over everything - toss in bag of trash with the ornaments that are past their prime.
Light Bulb Comes On: Betsy @ "My Salvaged Treasures" posted about using the hangers on vintage Christmas tree ornaments in some of her jewelry creations.
Dig thru trash to recover the ornaments, that are now dusted with faux snow. Shake and blow faux snow off of them.
Clean faux snow up that did not land back in trash bag ! Geeeesh!!
Dig out scissors and a knife to dig glue off of the hanger where I had attached decorations to the ornament many, many moons ago with a hot glue gun.
Got hangers removed, cleaned up and flattened out ! Yay! Thanks Betsy for sharing your great idea.
Second Project: Not a project, but cleaned leftovers out of fridge and threw in trash bag .
Third Project: Take pictures of the "past their prime" ornaments with the hangers that I planned to reuse .
Light Bulb Comes On: Dang.....The "past their prime" ornaments, minus the hangers , are now covered in leftovers "also past their prime" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sorry Gang - but there is no way I am going to dig thru the garbage to recover those ornaments just to take pictures for my blog!!!!!!!!!!! Ya'll are great, but I have my limits. Period - Point - Blank !!!!!
I need to learn to finish one thing before starting something else.
Stay warm !
ETA: I just noticed the picture in this post was taken this morning and the one in my header was taken last Winter, and they look almost identical. :-D
ETA: Never mind - changed my header picture - again.
