Just for kicks, I thought I’d pull back the curtain a bit and share the 7 WORST posts from this past year… the rotten tomatoes… the stink bombs… the ones you wanted to get away from. Fun, right? Chances are you won’t find these on anyone’s Pinterest wall. Unless someone mistakenly uses these images as a “Pinterest Fail”. So get your thumbs-down ready, cause here they come:
7. Beach People
Clearly these driftwood people sculptures were too creepy for the masses. Seems like a million years ago that we were enjoying a relaxing afternoon at the beach hunting for shells and seaweed, doesn’t it?
These pictures might not sell this puzzle set-up quite the way they could, but I’m still a believer. Anything to keep Martha from systematically tipping over all the stacked puzzles is a victory in my book!
We used to do this activity on New Year’s Eve growing up and it’s still one of my favorites. I guess most people don’t have a fishing tackle box kicking around so finding lead weights might be easier said than done, but if you see some, think about this little fortune telling craft.
So maybe you fine folks don’t love a fair the way I do. And I LOVE a fair. This past fall, we returned to the scene for our annual country fair fix. And rest assured, it didn’t disappoint.
Celeste is 94 and she sells her hand grown miniature boxwoods at the flea market all spring. She digs them up herself and sits next to her old station wagon every Sunday morning. I was thrilled to buy her out in order to replace all the boxwoods we lost in Hurricane Sandy.
When I noticed all the funky fruit at Wholefoods, I figured why not make them into a fun activity for the kids. A fruity taste test. They were pretty good about trying these new unfamiliar fruits, but sadly it didn’t transfer to their eating habits otherwise. Whomp whomp.
I get it… making kitschy/ tacky artwork ‘match’ may not be the most engrossing post of your life, but every time I go into Martha’s room, I enjoy the way these old school needlework pictures have come together!
So that’s that. The runts of the year. The ugly ducklings. The misfits. Show them some love… you never know, they might grow up to be viral beauties one day!
