Whipped Cream...Warm Pecan Pie...no one else wanted to share dessert with me at lunch today so it was ALL MINE !
All those calorie conscious gal pals.... so silly of them. It was sooooo yummy.
Only cute little Jackie was daring enough to "sniff it". She and I share the same October birthday...that has to be why she's as nutty as I am.
Lunch, once a month with the Ranger gals, is always a treat. We eat at a restaurant called - of all things - REDHEADS...Now I ask...is that appropriate or what ! They are in the process of renovating (the restaurant, not the girls ) so we graced their new marble wall.
Back row LR: Jackie, moi, Michelle, Patti, Debbie
Front: Bonnie and Theresa.
Now....Earlier in the day I finished up a project I started ions ago.
I had an unfinished wood pillar that I picked up on one of my unnecessary obsessive, compulsive shopping sprees and then couldn't quite figure out why I bought it, what to do with it, why I needed it or why I felt compelled to fix it up.... so.......
In some type of split second decision I decided to cover it with beeswax and apply a napkin to the surface. You have to do this in small steps. Then I added a piece of metal from Ten Second Studios on the top.
I also layed a stencil in areas and brushed wax over it to get a raised design.
I brushed those raised areas with perfect pearls.
Then....lo and behold...a BRILLIANT idea just zipped into my brain... I set the little statue that I bought last summer on top and made it more useful by becoming a jewelry display. Until now the little statue sat on the floor....isn't she a lot happier now??!!
Need a video fix today...check out Alain from Ranger...you'll LOVE it.
