D says A Mother's Motto could be: "EVERY WORD I SPEAK WILL ADD TO THE PEACE AND HAPPINESS OF MY HOME."
After this project my motto was, "IF I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING NICE TO SAY I WON'T SAY ANYTHING AT ALL."
I cannot tell a lie, I hated this project. Every minute of it.
These babies were once a nice shade of barn red...until the dust got to them. Yes, I know they are cheesy but I made them when I was first married, it's rare that I get crafty so I'm kind of attached to them.
As I'm taking this picture the 5 year old says, "Make sure they can see that cobweb mom". Such a good helper she is! I can see I need to work on my photography skills, everything looks like it's tipping forward.
I love this little guy...poor thing was just caked with dust.
Take a guess at what that that brick is sitting on top of...
I know what you're thinking...but in my defense, in order to see some of the items on my cupboards they need a little lift.
Apparently 4 years ago when I put up all this stuff I was feeling real creative in what I used for the "lifts". There used to be a tiny little bird house that sat on top. Take a guess at what this gadget is...
My 5 year old loves to give me ideas for my "splash of yellow". Today, as I was making eggs for breakfast she said "An egg would be a perfect splash of yellow". I think she's right!
The plastic vinery (I think I made that word up) was so dust infested that I just threw it into the sink...it didn't go well. All the grapes leaked purple and fell apart into tiny little white balls. Thankfully the vinery with sunflowers did fine and cleaned up quite nicely.
Especially after this...
At this point I lost all patience.
I vacuumed, washed, chucked, DI'd, and wiped as fast as I could.
I was wishing I hadn't gotten ready for the day as I worked up quite a sweat.
