At the time I am posting this..we are a few hours shy of February~
Le mois des coups de coeur~
Our eldest grandson..he is the ripe old age of 6..the first of the Alphabet boys~came for a visit yesterday.. ..We were in my craft room..w/ stuff everywhere..I had a Valentines' bag itching to get out of the closet..and a white tree my daughter and I bought..partly because it was 90% off the original price..so $2.49 and mostly because the years of my life with my parents.. that I remember...our tree was white and plastic..the late 50's ..60's and very early 70's..
I didn't have a whole heck of a time with them..19 yrs..seems like forever when you are nineteen..(little did I know it actually was~)..when you are 58..it's a splash in the bucket(Is that right?)
..It isn't plastic..but I saw myself with my canopy toy bed under that tree and bought the tree..
I thought..let's do a Valentine's tree~..Lulu..would that be fun? Sure!The idea had come to me the night before in bed..I do most of my thinking in bed and all day long:)
He is such a boy..and only enjoyed wrapping the heart glitter strand around the tree and eating a bracelet while he played with his pirate ship and watched me:)
I had everything on hand..Ephemera from the Graphics Fairy and Heather Bullard from last year or the year before..Ikea boxes..cupcake wrappers,cookie cutters..
It's a Sweets tree.. for bakers .. and drawers:)Nana got carried away and now it's in the little pink upstairs guest room..
I thought I would share to kick off February that often lacks a bit of color in my beautiful part of the world~
He's such a doll..I said do you like it Lulu? He said":" Ya it's cute nana:)"
I'll be making little ornaments to add to this frugal tree..Home made..Come back if you like and see.:)
February is a neat month..our youngest daughter's birthday.. 35 this yr.. a few yrs ago I was 35...my god daughter's birthday..sometimes it has 29 days..sometimes not:)
In short..Feb is unique for me.
