Nonetheless, today I made May Day Baskets, or "Tussie Mussies" for some friends. I delivered a couple today because I work tomorrow!
The first one I delivered was to my BFF, Laura. She and I are different as night an day in many respects.
A) She doesn't "Do Arts or Crafts."
B) She can read a Tidal Chart and Sail a boat like you wouldn't believe; she is a competitive racer.
C) She's petite and has a darling figure and is clueless about clothes- (and if you may recall, I worked as an Assistant Clothing Buyer at Nordy's) and although I DO NOT do the "Mall Thing" with anyone, I've been known to help HER pick out clothes.
D) She doesn't blog, facebook AND totally unlike me, she is ALWAYS glued to her cell phone for business.(Real Estate and property Mgmt.) (( We've had THE Safety Chat about phones/texting.))
BUT, we both take an active role in the Community, love animals, share laughs, and I guess primarily we respect and admire each others differences. And, we've been through a LOT of life's changes and adversities together.
But, I digress-
Based on her personality-(Anti Frou-Frou) and beachy,,,here's the Tussy Mussie I made for her. I filled it with "Flora and Fauna" and brought it to her home tonight!
I also hung one tonight on my dear Penny's door. Complete with White French Tulips, Vibernum, Hosta and White Aylissum. (Shown below-She's a Francophile and her livingroom is done in Browns/creme and aqua.. I thought this was "very" Penny.)
I gave another to my friend Deb of Garden Party. minutes after hanging Penny's,,,as she was driving through our neighborhood, we FINALLY had a few minutes to chat about upcoming events.........She's been HOPPING! Getting ready for the event at Sand Point in Seattle and THEN....Ta-da! She will have a booth at Farm Chicks in Spokane!
Deb's Tussie Mussie!
Deb (Bock) is SUPER talented! We worked together for a while a couple of years ago and I really got to SEE what she does and what she is capable of...Gorgeous, innovative work! If your local and you need a consultation on oh,,,let's say your garden, or "mixing up" your decor, or an interior design "Nip and Tuck," Deb is fantastic! http://gardenpartydecor.blogspot.com/ Check out her link and blog if you haven't she is unreal!
Tomorrow night after work I will post my "Swaps" for the Tussie Mussie Event for a "Swap for all Seasons" and my May Day Basket Swap!" And of course, Tomorrow, MY giveaway ends!
Have a great weekend. I'll be working at Joyworks! Make sure you visit Jana's new blog it should show up in my sidebar, for clothing and accessories and also, check out her new FACEBOOK presence!!!
Hugs and Love,
