Just a very quick post for me this morning. (No, really. It's quick.) I've been busy and distracted this week not accomplishing anything and I need to get back to that fruitless endeavor and not accomplish even more.
I did take a few minutes out of my very busy schedule to swing by the thrift store to see what I could see, and today's yakabout is all I have to show for it.
I found this.
I was pretty excited about it, too. I mean, really... for a quarter? I couldn't believe that no one had snapped it up for a lousy quarter. Clearly, the orphaned bun foot was meant for me. I brought it home and showed it ever so proudly to the bread winner.
He said, "What did you get that for?"
And I said, "For a quarter."
Yes, I knew what he meant. I just like to mess with him that way. The man has absolutely no vision. He thinks an old, orphaned, bun foot is just an, old, orphaned bun foot.
A little orange paint and a white wash,
and we have a perfectly good pumpkin.
I feel the need to say, Bippity Boppity Boo
Then I stuck a cork in it.
And added a little green burlap for leaves.
Here she is now, all dressed for the Fall Ball.
Now, where I'll actually put it, I have no clue. If I had four of them, I'd use them on my table, but there is only one.
So what did I make it for?
For a quarter.
Try to keep up, folks.
By the way...
Don't you think these old finials look like a couple of acorns?
Yeah, I think so too.
