remember the 'cloth paper' I showed you last week?
or was it the week before?
Well, I have had fun this week
constructing an 'Acorn House'
I'm sure there isn't such a thing as an
Acorn House -
except in Charlie and MiMi Land.
We have always been fond of
and our collection really did need a home.
So, I created this house
using 20 gauge wire as the supports,
and then covering it all with the
cloth paper I had made.
We had a visit with them (the grands and their parents)
the other evening,
and when our daughter saw how very fragile
the Acorn House was,
she cautioned me that Charlie is only 2
(well, in his defense, he'll be 3 next month!).
I told him the house was very fragile
and he'd have to be very careful with it.
He carried it like it was spun glass!
I overheard him showing it to his Dad,
telling him that it was very fragile and
It was a great learning experience for me.
Even if it doesn't survive for a week,
I learned a lot,
and Charlie had the fun of receiving it
and playing with it for a while.
I also got to give Maggie her hat.
I think she likes it -
what do you think?
Our weather has turned unseasonably cold!
The kids had a nice fire in their fireplace
Charlie loves a good fire -
and of course if there are S'mores,
that's even better!
Maggie is just happy to be!
thanks for stopping by!
Have a great weekend!
peace to you and yours!
