SANTA'S ELVES

I've been a busy bee the past two days. Too bad I can't show you what else I've been doing, but like I said the recepients read this blog. But here is one cute thing I know you'll enjoy and I'm safe sharing.
I made an crayon apron for Morgan. The fabric is Kitty Cucumber who is a favorite of mine. I even have a Christmas ornament of Kitty! Isn't this the cutest thing? I love it and had a blast making it. Can't wait to give it to her at Christmas.
When my sister Gail and I were young tots, a family friend gave us each a crayon apron which I treasured and still have. I should go up in the attic and find it. It would be very vintage given my advanced age--lol. Here's a close-up of the crayon pockets. Isn't this fun?

A very sweet blogger friend Tatting Chic chose me for a Marie Antoinette award. I have to tell you seven (7) things about myself that are weird or unusual and then select 7 more to share their secrets. Here goes:
#1--I've always fantasised about being a rock band back-up singer
#2--I was an English major and love words. I would actually enjoy reading the dictionary.
#3--I love beautiful gardens & landscaping, but just not enough to go out and work at it.
Fortunately sweetie pie does the outside work.
#4--If I lived alone (Heaven forbid)I would paint my rooms in bright colors and be a hippie.
#5--Speaking of hippies, when I was in college I painted flowers on my knees.
#6--I want a small farm to raise sheep, goats & alpacas. My dream is to spin my
own yarn and knit a sweater from it.
#7--Etiquette is important to me-I think it makes us all more civilized. The world sure needs more of that!
I sound pretty boring, no? Actually I'm a lot of fun, just eccentric. I love that word.
Think I'll look it up in the dictionary. Nerm

LOL, NERM!!! We are kindred spirits, I swear! I declared English as my major my Freshman year in college (then changed it to something else) and sometimes I do read the dictionary, too! LOL! Shhhhh...don't tell anyone~!

It is nice to meet you! We actually moved from Franklin to Pleasant View so I know the area well.
I love the crayon apron too! It is so sweet.

What a darlin' apron! I would like to see the "vintage" one, too. I like your "quirks" - you sound like someone I'd love to be friends with . . . I could learn a few things from you, as well.

Hugs,
Sarah

Nerm,
That apron is really, really cute. I love Kitty Cucumber too! Hope you are feeling well and pacing yourself! We're going to try to go to the Dickens Christmas this weekend. How do you like the snow?! Wishing you a joyous holiday weekend!
Love,
Victoria Lynn
