when i woke this morning i had two things on my mind 1. were there any names rolling in and 2. a thumping headache...i did what most women do, i choose to ignore the pain and get on with the day...i thought if i donned a creative outfit it would help me get on with being productive, but alas it was not to be..
i have enjoyed each and every one of the names that are already in the jar (which is really a pyrex bowl), i love the fact you gave me reasons for your choices and i love the reasons! they are all fabulous ( Francesca, i can only imagine that 'Stanley' would be a cross dressing door who at night appears on the stage at Las Vegas with a flamboyant name). quite honestly i think they will all end up as names for my bags and slips...and if you think of anymore, or are still pondering, you can enter as many times as you like...you really have cheered my day.
after a morning of packing and labelling i got to midday and could go no further, my plans to catch up on custom orders was shelved and i did something i can't remember doing in years, i took myself back to bed in the middle of the day...with some painkillers.
the ramblings are low on the ground today, so let's just hit 'Tif 's Top Tips' head on..
my first tip would be 'do not drink and blog, it gives you a false sense of confidence and you come up with stupid ideas like 'top tips'. worse still you actually believe you can pull it off '
but i said i would and so here it is...
'Tif 's Top Tip for this week is GARDENING'
you have two options if you wish your garden to stand out in a suburban neighborhood setting, put plants and flowers everywhere, care for it day and night and mow the lawn regularly...strangers and neighbors will pass by and compliment you on your well kept space. alternatively, you can leave your poor yard to fall into a life of rack and ruin, this will also get you noticed, but not for the right reasons. our garden falls into the last category...so here are a few prize snippets from our carefully ignored yard
and exhibit five
and lastly my favorite specimen of all, our christmas tree, which has been in our front yard since January 3rd...it is nothing short of a miracle tree, it is now June and it is still going strong, with no roots...me and my man are keeping our fingers crossed the tree makes it all the way to December so we can bring him in again...i feel that would qualify as a bit of recycling.
wishing you pretty pots of flowers where ever you are, see you Monday ~ Tif
