...hello bloggy friends!
this is a random W.W. post
do you ever feel
i'm not talkin' about how you feel,
after you eat that decadent raspberry brownie,
iced with glorious chocolate ganache
sitting on your counter,
tauntingly wooing you either!!
i didn't say guilty
now i'm stuck on those raspberry brownies ~ LOL!!
moving on ~
isn't this little pink elephant toooo adorable??
her name is ellie
i saw her one day while visiting Vivianne's blog
and wanted her for my very own.
i ordered a kit to make her from her etsy shop
all her little mohair friend are toooo sweet!
i could just eat them up...
maybe just hug and squeeze them all,
fuzzies don't really taste good!
would you believe
that she is only 4 little inches??
her legs and arms move too
my daughter stitched her up,
as she grew weary with waiting for me to get to her!
i * love * how she turned out...
i'm thinkin' she needs a friend.
perhaps in a soft blue gray or oatmeal color.
i may even call him edmund!
(edmund likes turkish delight)
i'm not so sure about that turkish delight
but let's say like, marshmallows,
and i'm there!
(is it me, or do you think i have a sweet tooth today??!)
and sorry to disappoint,
but this is not about
ooey, gooey marshmallows
let me just say
there is NO
NO comparison to homemade marshmallows vs. store bought ones!
i'll share the recipe someday...
this is about the color of marshmallows
i imagine right about now,
you are saying to yourself ~
what in the world is she onto now?!
and to that i would respond
and just WHAT is this?!
why my darlings,
THIS is my faux grain sack
i love the look of it,
and needed alot of it for a project
i set off to duplicate the look,
i took a canvas drop cloth
and washed it
washed it again
and on the third time
i added "non-chlorine" to the wash
(which is really just peroxide)
a good half of the gallon.
this softens and lightens :)
i used painters tape to help me make the stripes
taping it to the floor
also helped it from shifting.
now i'm painting the "marshmallow" stripe
that is the paint color
rollin' rollin' rollin'
keep your paintbrush rollin'!!
let dry overnight
place more blue tape down the center
let dry again, overnight
faux grain sack cloth...
bet you're wondering what i'm going to do with it now, huh?
well, on thursday
i will be revealing
my jeanne d'arc like
"rose-Mary" french rocking chair!!
i'll give you my inspiration shot
i told you it was a random kinda day:)
sharing this with Faded Charm's: White Wednesday
here's to raspberry brownies!!
