LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

Eggs and a Movie

My son called and actually wanted to spend time with Mom. Do you know what a miraculous thing that is for a 23 year old boy ( um...., Man, lol ) to want to hang out with " Mom" ?? lol Well I dropped everything and went to see the Bucket list with him. ( Saw it with Hubby a few weeks ago, and loved it !! Cept for the few GD references, makes my skin jump when they use that word ) I had a bit of that popcorn. Yep just a bit. lol ( In case you are wondering about the casino background, most of the movie theaters in town are in casinos here ) I feel like another week has gone by and not much to show for it. I am trying to change my patterns and stay off the computer more so I can accomplish more. My art is not just a hobby, it pays some vital bills around here, and all those months of being ill has put us behind. So, I have to get to work. :) I have one more MRI to get through ( still a little pain ) and hopefully all is well. I painted this great box this week. This is one of those I want to keep. I am slowing re accessorising the house in this robins egg blue. I just love this color !! It sings to my soul. :)
Another sweet Bunny Box. :) Little secret. I had bought a bunch of gold foil bunnies at a local outlet store, Being the *nal perfectionist I am, I couldn't just glue them onto boxes, nope, that would have been too easy. So, PAINSTAKINGLY ( lol ) I picked off the foil that was GLUED onto the bunnies, piece by piece, until they were Neck-ed. lol And then I crackled them with white paint. I am far too picky and would get so much more done, but it has to be just so. You know ?? I know there are others like me out there, and yes, we probably need a self help group. :) Anyhow. That is how this sweet bunny box came to be. I have it here.
Now, the next part of my week was a bit yucky and sweet all at the same time. Yucky as in I sucked the raw egg out of 13 eggs. lol. And turned them into Faux Sugar Eggs !!!! How sweet are these ?? I listed some on etsy and they were all gone by the next morning, so, guess what I will be doing today ?? lol




Anyhoo, I hope you are having a great Week !!! I also hope lots of Valentines goodies find a way to your home. :) Hugs,

Rhea

Rhea,
Love your blog.
Question: sucked the eggs?
No, no, m'dear.
You poke a hole in each end with a needle and BLOW the contents out.
I guess either way gets you a real red face, though!
