Ready or not. Here we go.
Boxes and Boxes
Christmas Tree is looking sad and bare.
We interrupt this story of packing decorations to show this machine. It lives in my kitchen. All you have to do is load it with dishes, add a little square cube of soap, shut the door, push the button. Half an hour later you have clean dishes. It's almost magic.
But what do I see? Dishes IN the machine. You see, I had almost finished loading it. I.T. girl was still eating a little lunch. I asked her when she was finished eating, to please drop her dish in the dishwasher, add soap, and START it. "Sure" she said happily. It's now 4:20pm. I just happened to walk by the kitchen and you guessed it - all I see is the dishwasher left exactly the way, well, exactly the way I left it. I just had to take a photo. I couldn't resist. And her dish? It's in the sink. It made me laugh. Honestly, I actually laughed.
If I were to get hit by a bus tomorrow, I don't know what they would do. :)
Late yesterday afternoon I did a quick craft project. It is easy peasy. Honestly, easy peasy. And it cost me $0. I already had all the materials.
I found the tutorial here: Pottery Barn Knock Off Musical Candles
Dropped the candles in hurricane vases. Added cinnamon sticks. I only had 2 candles the color I wanted so the middle hurricane is filled with potpourri. I used burlap for a runner.
Love, love, love the display. Can't wait to add a few more little things. I'm thinking about those Mason Jar Snow Villages. Hmmmmm
A new Year filled with new projects. YIPPEE
