I just love glitter...I love walking into a room and a little glitter catches my eye...a little sparkle...that's what happened when I first met my hubby....he took my breath away!
He saw me playing the piano in chapel and wondered who I was...a ditzy freshman...but I struck a 'chord' shall we say musically in his little farmers heart. We met later when I donned a nurses uniform, dressed up for some silly college day, with a "new" enema bag around my neck. I filled it with water, and as people walked by me I would squirt them from behind. Oh that was soo much fun, he was intrigued and wanted to meet me...after I drenched him...I had no idea he was the assistant Dean of Men!
He brought me home to meet his family...they stood at the front room window and laughed hysterically while I was outside (I found out much later) as I helped him shovel turkey manure onto the area to be gardened...in my designer jeans...they howled as I wore my cute little outfit(after all we weren't engaged yet) while I planted beans, squash, corn. He had three sisters that I had to prove myself too. They didn't think a woman with makeup and foofy hair could farm...so I had to show them! Years later farmer hubby asks me to plant (1,000) brocolli plant/starter plants...and I said "are you kidding? I'm heading to the craft store...I'm out of glitter!"
Many, many years later....as we still make music together (I'll get a line, you get a pole honey...)
I have found new ways to sparkle...Martha Stewart glitter...it is everywhere.
I asked my husband after I was finished with this project if he noticed anything different about me? He said I sparkled...literally...my heart again swoons...
Such joy, to be married to the man (farmer) of my dreams and he still thinks I sparkle! (He better! I told him if I didn't sparkle he might get clobbered with a Rhode Island Red Chicken!) We have hundreds of them...anyhoo
The glass dome is from the thrift store, a wooden plate spray painted (I'm still trying to figure out if spray painting really is a power tool?), and pine cones, and pecans decked out for the holidays....
Sparkling is optional but preferred!
Tomorrow I will share my most embarassing moment with my hubby during my college days! Tomorrow also starts my week of "Christmas planners and ideas" so stay tuned!
"In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."
