They Look Cute....

So this was going to be a brag post, I have gotten tons of stuff done so far this year. Like these really adorable Christmas Trees.

Yea, I know it is after Christmas, but I've had them knit since Christmas '07 and now they are done. The yarn is all stuff I had in my stash. Left to right Yarn Bee (exclusive to Hobby Lobby) Highland Thistle, Caron Bliss, and Bernat Velour. I found the pattern on a blog in '07, but it doesn't exist anymore. I also added the cute pom pom garland. I found a tutorial for that via the Craft Magazine blog ( Cute stuff right? One of my brags. Except for two things....

Zeke and Frankie. Yea, their cute but the stuff they do is not so cute. They are spoiled and get away with everything. Here is what I found this morning.

One little tree in the hallway.

And another garland tree, mutilated in the living room. I have worked on the garland for this tree 3 times!

And last, but not least they destroyed a really neat coaster I made Aaron for our anniversary a few years ago.

Normally I wouldn't be so upset about coasters. These coasters however, survived the old house! If you saw my old house you understand. Not only did they survive they survived the coffee table in our living room! Look what Frankie and Zeke are going to meet....

$7 Luggage!

Yes, it's true. I paid $7 for my fabulous, vintage luggage. I was Halloween costume shopping with my Mom and there it was in all its '70's glory. Tags without writing and keys still attached. It was meant to be. I feel like that was the first time my Mom and I laughed together about Peru. I still laugh, although now it is more nerves and excitement. The yellow luggage still always gets me.

Sorry the picture is crummy. That is at Goodwill with the cell camera. Goodwill lighting is making everything yellowish, but the luggage is pretty spot on. I didn't get it right away. I asked the very fashionable M. first. When she said yes my Mom went back and picked them up for me. I was so lucky! We didn't put them on hold and no one else bought them...can you believe it?
I made my little scarf too. Icelandic wool and rainbow mohair. Lovely. you know.

Just Checking it Out

Here it is...officially the first blog post. A test if you will. And I have nothing to say. I stare at the blank space, switch tabs to Etsy; stare at the blank space, shop on Etsy. You would think a person who talks as much as I do might have a little something to say. It's a good thing I am going to Peru.
