I Need A Vacation!!!!!

After reading this post, you will not argue with me.... You may be even sending over the gooney squad to get me after reading this but sometimes we just gotta do what we gotta do!
Hubby and I have been out farming the back 40...In California that is 40" not acres. Well, there has been a tomato that is quite curious and I just couldn't leave it alone! Meet Henry:
Now when you have a schnoz like this, you gotta have rhinestone eyes!
And of course, when you have a schnoz like this, the rhinestone eyes can't be the same size! Now that I have that out of my system...., I need to share another thing with you:
Meet Edna:
This pretty little lady watches over our kitchen. She sits on our cooking island and for some dumb reason I feel like a better cook with her around.
Now, when we have family get-togethers I find poor Edna like this:
Last Easter I caught my brother-in-law putting her like this... I asked him why. His answer..."She needs to be in time out!" Hmmmm.....who needs the gooney squad??? me??? him??? both of us??? Hard to tell...
Now a little redemption.
I am really excited about the Sweet and Sinister Swap and have cleared my end of Southern Calif. of all cool black and cream scrapbook paper, flocked, striped,swirled and polka-dotted...and some spotted black and cream flowers to go with...YUM!
Well, I feel better now! We are going to take a couple of days of vacation at the end of August...Hopefully I will do better then! Until then...Probably more weird posts for you! Have a cooookie week! karen....

Oh Karen, you are so funny! My dad use to do things like this with vegetables that came out of our garden. I laughed my head off when I seen this. You know my nickname is "tomatolover", right? I'm so glad that I finally made it to your site. I love it. It's really vintage and comforting.

Take care,
