"How I Spent My Day"....by Colleen B {re-run warning!}

Crazy-busy day-week (that's a day that feels a week looong) so this is a re-run..encore performance..

From: this time last year...

Yep, it could have been an essay - but let's make it just a blog instead...with photos..

OK, the first bit has no photos, because, actually, I think each of you know what it looks like to do laundry, clean the fridge & freezer, mop the bathroom and clean the tile grout on the floors...that is..unless you have a maid..in which, I think.....

maybe I don't know you at all..

Who ARE you people??

So, that takes care of the drudge stuff..now it's time to play!

I bought some plain clothespins at the dollar store - the un-springy kind..do they have an official name?

Didn't think so..

So, here's the end product...I like them to hold letters, cards, and to just be pretty..



This is another darling photograph of my Mother..look at those cheeks!

The round thingy in the background is a little book I made from drink coasters...
..you should see Mr. B when he knows I'm going to ask the server for..
"oh, like 15 or 20 coasters, please..Um..and a chicken salad, dressing on the side, 'K?? "

The a few of you said how I looked like my Mother {thank you} but here's the proof that I am my Daddy's daughter...uh..son?..no..daughter, it was Halloween, remember?
This one's Daddy...

..and this is his lovely um..daughter...me :-)

Whoa... Hmmm.. Yeppers...

Well, can't really follow that up with anything..

Maybe a photo of {me} so you won't forget what I NORMALLY look like..

Have a "un-drudgery" day tomorrow, OK?

Goodness! You DO look just like your dad, especially at Halloween. Wish he could see you...he would roll around laughing! Hey, maybe he CAN see you; in which case, I'm sure he's tickled that you resemble him so much! He was very cute!

Love the little clothes pins...another really fun idea from the mind of Mrs. B!

Wonderful post Colleen! I absolutely ADORE those clothespins! So precious!!
Dressing up like your dad? PRICELESS!

I like the 'real' you photo too! You're so cute! It looks like you live in cubicle land! :)

Oh! You asked how I got texture on one of my backgrounds and I forgot to let you know. Sorry!
I just did the painting over a print of sheet music so the notes are showing through on her face. Wasn't sure if I liked it right away, but it's ok after all :)

have a wonderful day!!
