I’m No Martha Stewart

I’m no Martha Stewart. MS wouldn’t be caught dead making little Santa hats for pink flamingos like my Pinky and Wendell, and if she did, she’d make perfect little hats instead of the kind I made yesterday after failing to find suitable hats at the Hobby Lobby. The best thing I found at HB was a wonderfully nice cashier named Rachel who pointed out that I was about to buy Christmas lights with white cords instead of green ones. Rachel was on the ball too when she noticed I had a package of two bows instead of the three I was going to pay for. She got the price reduced to 66% off which was fine with me. Hobby Lobby, give that girl a raise!

Pinky and Wendell normally reside in my backyard safely out of sight for those who would callously accuse me of “visual pollution,” not that my neighbors would and certainly not neighbor Joe who has creatively decorated a tree in his yard but certain family members might.

In my archives (August), you’ll find a post entitled, Why do Folks up North Pay to Dress Up Geese? I guess the question is now, “Why put Santa hats on pink flamingos?” Don’t have the answer except to say I was in a quirky mood. Merry Christmas and happy decorating!

Pinky and Wendell do make different Christmas decorations, that's for sure! No one would accuse you of being a copy cat LOL.

Did I miss it, or have you forgotten to put a link to your River City blog on this blog? It looks great, by the way. I see you solved the comment problem, and the pictures certainly help.

Thanks for the suggestion, Rosemary. I'm going to add the link for the new blog. Well, there's always more than one way to skin a cat. Wish the photos could be bigger, but at least I got them up.
