A Path

"Pursue some path, 
however narrow and crooked, 
in which you can walk with love and reverence."
                                                                          --Henry David Thoreau

Box Becomes Basket




Perhaps this looks familiar as a couple years ago I posted this Easter craft idea; however, I wanted to remind everyone of this easy, cheap and fun way to make a personalized basket for someone special.  Use any box (this happens to be a Tazo tea box with a beautiful inside pattern) and carefully disassemble.  Next, using double-sided tape, rebuild the box inside out.  Then embellish it with a handle (I used a pipe cleaner), stickers and so on -- just have fun with it.  Finally, fill with all sorts of goodies and make someone's day.  I'm making three to deliver to nieces and a nephew.

Little Bloomers

"The spring has sprung, the grass is rizz.
I wonder where them birdies is?"

St. Patrick's Day

"May your blessings out number the shamrocks that grow,
and may trouble avoid you wherever you go."

"These are bagpipes.
I understand the inventor of the bagpipes was 
inspired when he saw a man carrying an
indignant, asthmatic pig under his arm.
Unfortunately, the man-made sound never
equaled the purity of the sound achieved by the pig."
                                         --Alfred Hitchcock

Spring All Around

"Come the Spring with all its splendor
All its birds and all its blossoms.
All its flowers and leaves and grasses."

From time to time I come across things in parking lots that humor me, and this vehicle tagged "Rubicks" did just that.  At Christmas time I often see a few vehicles adorned with wreaths, red Rudolph noses and antlers.  With St. Patrick's Day and Easter on the horizon, maybe a pot of gold on the front bumper or giant rabbit ears will be cruising through the streets -- keep your eyes open!
