Mission Accomplished


This is a two-part post.
Both parts have to do with
my buddy Renee from


The lovely ladies in the picture below
were a gift from one of Renee's friends.
Her friend was driving behind a store
and she saw
several mannequin's lined up outside.
Like the good "Junker" that she is,
she pulled over and asked
what was happening to these beauties.
She was told to take as many as
she wanted,
and so she did!
She's been handing them out
like candy every since.

I put them in the guest room in our lower level,
but didn't tell my middle son.
He always goes in that room to watch T.V.,
so I knew that there would be a moment-
Hee Hee...
And, apparently there was.

I asked him later if he had met
his new girl friend and her baby yet.
He had- :)
He very politely told me that
they"Scared the crap" out of him.

Aaaaaahhhhh...

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

I decided that She should get some clothes on-
I think that I should name her...
Suggestions welcome

O.K
Second part of this post

Renee, this is a surprise for you-
In my last post, where I announced
the winner of my give away.
I told you all that there was
a funny story involved.
Well, Renee entered my give away,
but had told me that if she won
not to give it to her,
but to draw again so that
someone else could win.

I thought, what are the chances?
There are 40 names in this hat.
Well, guess whose name was drawn first?
Yes,
RENEE!!!

So Renee,
because you make your own beautiful bags,
I decided to make something for you that you don't normally make for yourself.

I made you a
"Garden Girl Apron"
instead.
I hope that you like it.

If you still want the Ooh-La-La bag,
I am all over it!


Happy Gardening Renee!!!

(Isn't my son's new girlfriend lovely?)

I could use a "girl" like that around my home. No one ever wants to model for me. That garden apron is great. Very nicely done.
