It's at least a million degrees outside with 2000 percent humidity. I do not exaggerate. Walking from the car to the grocery store entrance robs me of my breath and the will to go on. Young Beckham needs to practice his ball skills but how can I send him outside in this heat?
So inside the relatively cool cocoon of our home I've been working on a little Christmas...
I LOVE Christmas in July. Well I love Christmas year round and in my continued effort to be less of a
slacker procrastinator I've begun work on christmas crafts for winter shows.
Tacky plastic window candles are easily transformed with spray paint and some fluffy bits (yes, they may still be tacky but it's a DIFFERENT kind of tacky - MY KIND of tacky). Jello molds make great bases for bottle brush trees.
And just in case I was worried I might run out (as if that could EVER happen - you've seen my stash) of ornaments look what I happened upon at the flea market yesterday morning...
A basket full of vintage Christmas goodness. Never mind that it was still dark when I was digging through the booth. Never mind the fact that I had no idea what colors they were, due to said darkness (the sun had yet to rise).
And never mind that I did make my kids go out in yesterday's heat to accompany me to said flea market! In my defense, we were out the door at 4:30AM and done shopping by 8:30AM so we did scurry inside before the full blast hit us!
Such junking folly!!!
