It's Just That Simple

Work has been a bit slow the past few days, as I've been sidetracked with two little pumpkins who have allergies, colds and ear infections. Even with the runny noses, it's been quite nice to just take a few days to concentrate on my babies and cater to their every need. After what seemed to be an eternity, I finally managed to get everyone fed and occupied so I could do some work. My 2 year old, of course, did not agree. As she pulled a bag of "stuff" from the craft cabinet, making a huge mess in the process, I began to scold her. As I did, she ran to the living room squealing with delight. I looked in the bag and found some tissue paper squares, a few appliques, a glue stick and a little spool of ribbon. That huge smile was all about some sad skinny red satin ribbon...she is definitely my daughter!

She jumped up and down, shaking her head yes, repeating "Me? Me?"  I of course obliged, opened the ribbon and watched her as she fiddled and twirled, trying to make her own little art project. We grabbed a handful of buttons and began stringing them onto the ribbon. Within a few minutes she had a pretty little necklace, and surprisingly she played with long enough for me to get 20 minutes of work done.
I wish it was always that simple!

Treasury Tuesday: What's Your Favorite Condiment?

I've been so busy lately, I haven't made a treasury for some time. There have a few up my sleeve, but insipration struck this weekend. With all the nice weather, my hubby fired up the grill on Saturday. When I arrived in the kitchen for lunch, I was greeted with that irresistible aroma of smokey, slightly charred, hot dogs.

Since picnic season is arriving any day now, I decided on a condiment poll. It's always a huge debate in my household. My husband, a mustard devotee,  feels that ketchup on a hot dog is reserved for children. The shameful glances often come my way because I, on the other hand, usually teeter back and forth between ketchup and mustard with relish.  I'm more of a follow your fancy condiment consumer.

All this hoopla morphed into my kitschy treasury, "Ketchup or Mustard?".  I'll leave it up to you.....

By the way, last night I was definitely in a mustard sort of mood!

Hope you enjoy,
