No Foolin'

We love to laugh.   We don't take ourselves too seriously.  When there is a chance to celebrate... we do.

Case in point:

A year ago today, our chickens were hatched, placed in a box and shipped overnight from Missouri to Idaho. 

They used to be so tiny.  Full of fuzz and just sprouting feathers.   Now, they are full grown chickens, feeding our breakfast needs daily and following us around the yard, anticipating the next treat.

Today, we delivered. 

Last night, Craig ask that I make the chicks a cake.  Equipped with icing and toppings.
Yes, "toppings" does include worms harvested from our garden.  No, Craig and I did not join them in eating cake.

After all, there was none left.

Double Take

Remember the day I swore by washi tape?  Oh, that was yesterday?  Well, some things never change overnight.  Because guess what....  I did some more decorating with washi tape!!!

This time, I wanted to make a fun addition to our B wall and this piece of boring just wasn't cutting it. 

This is why you need washi tape in your life.  I think I may need to become a spokesperson for the stuff.  I feel like a broken record. 

I can almost hear your oohs and ahhs through the computer.  Cute, huh?!

To clean up the edges, I used a complementary color to finish it off.  

And now, it looks a little something like this...

Actually, I feel bad lying to you.  It looks exactly like that.  

**In case you are wondering, I got this gift from heaven (washi tape) from  Everyday, they have fun things to offer up at great discounts.  I can't promise that today will be washi tape, but keep checking in.  It's bound to reappear.  Or, just go to this search I did on ETSY.  You are welcome.

Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy!

Alright folks.  I've got news for you.

Washi Tape.

Have you heard of it?  Do you own any?

Get on it!  It'll make your home bright and ready for spring.

So, wanna follow along?  All you need is an empty can, some washi tape, some soil and a plant.  Seriously.  Easy.

Then, pick your favorites and wrap it up!  I love the rich colors and the intricate designs.

Finally, add a fun plant and pair it with equally quirky pieces.  You husband will thank you for spray painting and displaying trophies later.  Way later.  As in, I'm still waiting.

But on a serious note...  I did earn the biking trophy.
