Mz. Yuletide Rosie's Got a Brand New Hat (or Two)
Oh Gawd, Joanne, my tree does NOT look like yours!!! What's a girl in red high heels to do? You must remember that I have NO experience with artificial trees---this is one skinny tree, my friends!! ROFL What? Did you say....oh, I'm supposed to do something else to it besides just stand it up??!! Oh, hmmmmm, well, let's see----I know, I'll just call Seester Sug to come fix this baby since she has LOTS of experience with artificial trees! (Brilliant light-bulb moment!! :D) I'll just run call her now, and I'll be right back! ;> Well, after all of the years that I've helped her put lights on her dang tree----can you believe the nerve----she suggested I get on with 'fluffing out' those gazillion little tiny branches, take THREE aspirins, and call her after I've finished 'fluffing'. (Yeah, I'll be 'fluffing alright!!!! :/ ) Okay, enough Tom-foolery (where did that expression come from? The only Tom I knew (my Dad) had absolutely NO foolery about him whatsoever!! :/
Okay, folks, here's the scoop---I LOVE MY TREE!!!!! IT IS A REAL 'CHARLIE BROWN' TREE!! It's just tooo cute for words. So I'm officially an 'artificial' girl this year. They say there's a first for everything! :> Of course, I have to add lights and ornies, and that will take a little while, but there will be 'after' pictures too. :)
So, Mz. Rosie got her a new 'baby sock' hat, which I forgot to take a picture of her with it on. I'll do that later too. And because Darcie is just the sweetest blogger friend, and sent me an email full of crochet 'how-to's', I sat right down today and made Mz. Rosie a hat and scarf. What do you think? :) Gawd knows I's knows nuffin' bout crochetin', so don't hurt my feelings here friends!!! ROFL
The sunset last night (I think) was absolutely breathtaking, so I had to share it with you. Now, I'll go see if I can get some lights on the tree.
