A Pirate Turns One
We are taking a break from our regularly scheduled projects to prepare for Baby Hughes' 1st Birthday. Wow, this year has flown by, it seems like it was just yesterday that I was uncomfortably large, sweaty and had cankles! It was all worth it for this little man though. And, we have been busy making decorations and invitations for his party. Here is the inside of the invite that Mr. Hughes and I designed. (well, Mr. Hughes did the drawing, I just pointed and told him where to put what.)
I really wanted to burn the edges, but Mr. Hughes refused to let me start paper on fire in the house. Then, I just forgot. The next thing I really wanted was some sort of centerpiece. And, we always try to make our decorations or use what we have. It is fun and normally cheaper. So, when we were at a antique store, I saw this:
What is this? I asked Miss Linda and she thought it was a planter. How much? $3. Sold! It, with a little work (mainly from Mr. Hughes... he sometimes hijacks my projects.) it became this:
Very cute if I do say so myself. I know it probably isn't in scale, but we haven't invited any shipbuilders, so we should be safe. Now I must go, Baby Hughes is lifting up all the small rugs and taking the nonskid lining from behind them!
