JK. Couldn't let this day pass with out some token of it. could I? My hair is so short already, I couldn't fit a rod around it!!! And I do my own, or my #2 daughter who is also a beautician, does my hair...................

Once again its Whatch working on wednesday, Jump over to Leslie's and see what everyone else is doing. http://sweetsmycountryhome.blogspot.com/

This is what I'm doing today..............We had new snow this morning. Just a skiff, cold as can be. I'm hoping the mountains got dumped on. We need it up there! Dh is on call this week, an was called out this morning. There was a poll on fire on the corner of state street and highway 40 in Roosevelt.(Alco corner )...They had the fire truck there, and were in a rush to get to the sub station and get the power off before the poll broke and dropped all those live wires on the anyone....... I am going up to the church in a couple of hours to help tie quilts for humanitarian effort. Then it's off to play cards with my Mom and my Girls. I have a bunch of eggs (Chickens are doing such a good job these days. LOL) and for part of my pot luck, I'm going to make deviled eggs and use my nifty deviled egg plate, which is also a TS find, (cuz according to the southern sisters mysteries, you're nobody if you don't even own an egg plate!) LOL


I painted this TS tool box last spring, but didn't find a home for it until just the last day or so. I decided to set it on top of the cupboard my tv is in. It can hold all the remotes and extra cords and such. I wanted it to say "Ranch Homestead" but didn't have room to make it all the size I wanted, so I settled for "homestead". I want to get it painted and re distressed this morning before I go to Altamont to quilt.



I did,at last, get the clock painted. OK, I need a suggestion.....This is for my Mom's house, and she likes "cottage" what can I put inside of this bird cage to make it look "Cottage"? My mind is blank....... Or should I leave it alone as it is?..........


Went here yesterday for a few minutes, and found a couple of treasures....

This little dome has been there for a month or more, calling my name. But, it was 4 dollars, and it was sitting on a very ugly cheese board that had had something hot glued to it at one time, and remnants of the hot glue were still there. Not too hot. I didn't want the board, just the dome. Because it had been there for a long time, I was able to get it for half price! And, sitting right there on the shelf nest to it, was this very pretty little footed and scalloped plate! I placed the dome on it, and wal-la! Perfect fit! I scooped them both up. I love how they look together! I think they will also find a Home at My Mom's..........................maybe.....LOL



I need to start reading Jane Eyre for my book club in April. Anyone read it? What
am I in for? Kim told me Romance, (I can do romance...) and my niece Caralee told me it would broaden my horizons! (that's why I'm in a book club:-) I need some "broadening! ) (well, some parts of me are already broad!)
I know one thing, I would like to see this new movie that BBC has
made, that this picture came from ! LOL


Well, gotta go, my eggs have boiled dry!!!! I'm off to make deviled eggs and go tie some quilts!
Have a great APRILS FOOLS DAY!!!!!
Think, what tom foolery can you play on ----someone---anyone----!

Mom you are amazing! I don't know how you do it! I think that plate is awsome! So i was sitting here reading your blog trying to figure out why you went to a salon to get you hair done and trying to think why I hadn't noticed it fifteen min. before when you were here! HE HE HE Love you mean it!

Lewaina,

This is my first visit to your blog and I have enjoyed it! I was cautious, but then really beginning to feel sorry for you about your hair! I should have known...I've fallen prey to many April Fools jokes today with my 10 year old! We've got my son (who is 21) still believing one! So much fun!

I love the tool box. I'd love to run across one of those at GW!

Have a great day!
Tammy

I believe I had a perm that turned out like that back in the late 80's! :)I still "poofed" what was left after all the broken pieces! haha!
I love all your DI finds. (I think I would leave the birdhouse as is, by the way.)
Thanks for the little award...I will be doing it on tomorrows post. I really had fun reading yours!
Have a fantastic day!
Jo-Anne

So sorry about your hair! It will grow back, thank GOD. The tool box is cool. I really like the chse/bread dome. You could always stick a nest in the clock if you want to, but it looks great by itself.

Vilate Thacker said...

so, you didn't get me. I knew better! :)
I will get to the honest scrap soon! I think a nest would look good in the clock, maybe even with some eggs and a bird. Or fine the way it is. I could have come to quilting today, but totally forgot about it -MAN! I'm looking forward to reading the book too, I hope it gets here before we leave tomorrow! A long drive really cuts into a book! :)

Mimi Sue said...

Hahaha. I was really feeling bad for you. I've had experiences with perms that were that bad so I could relate! Sounds like your day is jammed with fun things to do. Mimi

The first thing that came to my mind is why would she go to a cute little shop to get her hair purmed. I really believed you. You got me. That was good.

Jeanne Evans said...

Well, I totally was april fooled a couple of times today so I didn't fall for that. But I would have if it had been at like 8 a.m. because I had forgotten that it was April Fools day! Good one though!

Lex-a-roo said...

I was very worried about your hair for a moment I'm glad everything is fine.

Nicole said...

You totally had me on the the bad perm, I was feeling so bad for you! Love your finds, I need to shop at the DI with a more open mind because I never find anything good. So I was a little slow with the tag, I didn't realize Mimi Sue had already tagged you. It was fun to learn more about you!

Just like the rest of ya'll I was reading wondering why Waina would goto a salon, no matter how cute it was, to get her hair done, and a perm to boot? But I totally believed it, I was gonna give you my wig, it's a nice one, really, really long red curly! I'm wearing it in my profile picture, go look. I'll bring it down when I visit.
I LOVE my deviled egg plates, but I parted with one, just like yours, to give to Cindy, as I also believe everyone should have one.
