Ho, ho, ho, it’s such a barrel o’ laughs in BC Land. At least that’s what my husband must think looking at this list for the weekend..
And I know he hates it when it rains, ‘cos a little bit of dreary sky, which thanks be the lord, is not very often Down Under, at least not here anyway and I begin to scheme. About the house.
But I, you see, tell him that is the problem in living in an old run-down cottage…if I had a 20 mill property overlooking the harbour then, well, then I wouldn’t have anything to scheme about, would I?
It’s a funny old world really, I thought that today as I uploaded these shots…I mean he goes out to do a hard day’s work, grafting his skin to the bone, while I stay home playing Beach Cottages, making garlands outta tissue paper and coffee papers and write out lists on chalkboards of what I want him to do on our first free-ish weekend for oh about six months.
I may well just re-iterate here, though, that well-known, and much-used in embellishing one’s point saying, Happy Wife Happy Life.
I’m into garlands and tissue paper and I have no idea why. This one started with a convo with Angie on Facebook where, after my pom-pom tablescape (love that table, you can find it here) pointed me to a flower made from coffee papers and I decided I’d like to have a go myself. That didn’t work out ‘cos here on the beaches (and I have searched high and low, if you have round, white coffee papers about your person I may well have to abduct you…or of course you could offer to send me some…) I can only seem to find coffee papers that are shaped, not the round ones that I needed.
This then is the result of the screwed up papers that didn’t work…I strung them onto a piece of butcher’s twine and added some white tissue paper circles crinkled up…just because I thought it needed some white….wink*
I am thinking about stringing these on the deck, along with a bundle of tissue paper pom-poms (which it seems I am making every night..yep my family think I am odd…but I am happy) to celebrate the coming of Spring and summer…
As I hung them up I thought they’d be lovely for an outdoor celebration in a barn, or on a beach…you know?
For now I hung them on the vintage door to prettify the list of jobs…not sure if that worked lol. There were eyebrows from Mr BC when he saw this on the list…well it is Father’s Day on Sunday I must admit.
See you next week, what jobs are you gals scheming…hit me with ‘em (don’t forget you can still comment til close of play Friday to win the Donna Hay goodies).
I may stop by here with progress on the weekend
Ho Ho HO and a bottle of rum
