"Makes Me Happy Monday" warning this post has a sex scene!!!

Hello,

Happy Monday to you. I hope you survived the storm we had yesterday if you are from West Australia. Can't believe that the weather people didn't know that was coming. We had some sheets of iron flying around the place,very windy and lots of rain. I think they may have fallen asleep on the job after all the excitement of the West Coast Eagles winning the footy on Saturday night. Cousin Darren and his boys are of to the east coast next week,fingers crossed big time for them.

I am happy that Ainsley and Julian came for a visit yesterday. Mind you they had to drive through a hail storm to get here!!!! They had watched the new Smurf movie in the morning and loved it. Remember the Smurfs from the 80's. You used to be able to buy one of the figurines a week.


I finished the Milk Jug Cover last night. I had purchased a packet of glass beads from Spotlight a while back. The packet was only a dollar and had plenty of beads in. They are made in India and each is a little different. I sometimes wonder how craft companies can justify the prices they charge. If I only paid a dollar how much did the people in India get paid to make these beads. I suppose this is where mass production comes in.


I am happy to re-purpose items in the home. The little vase that is holding the flowers was originally held a candle. I thought it was to pretty to throw out and it suits being a vase now.

Oh I suppose you are wondering about the sex scene?


Two happy little Wood bugs/Stink bugs on the Hollyhocks in the vegie garden.

Happy Monday.

Love the jug cover and the jug Bev would you believe I still have a couple of the 80's smurfs in a box somewhere "Wonder if they are worth anything"??

Pauline said...

The thought of a sex scene with stink bugs is almost too much!

Love your little doily with the beads, very English garden elegant.

We've had lightning strikes and hail this afternoon but were warned they were coming. The hail arrived very quickly and I was lucky to be able to stop before driving off the road.

Karen said...

Gorgeous milk jug cover and the beads are just perfect. Pretty flowers, too, and well done re purposing the candle holder. Lovely.

marina said...

love the milk jug doilies. Glad you survived the storm.
As for the sex scene..... they are no Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie!

Melody said...

What a beautiful vignette you have composed on your tray. Of course I averted my eyes from the sex scene.

No storm here this weekend...beautiful days, let's hope it holds out for the school holidays this time...the last one was just rain, rain and more rain!!! Pleased that Ainsley and Julian arrived safely...I sometimes wonder with really cheap items how much the makers get paid...Have a great week...Dzintra

Sally said...

Yes I too wonder about how much people in the developing world are paid for the goods they make... especially when you think how much each person in tacks on in the sales process.
Love the jug cover.

Sharon said...

Your jug cover is lovely and the beautiful pic it's in! Glad I've been commenting regular here or you would think I stopped by because of your post title. ;-)

Lynn said...

Cheers....Jane.

Sharon said...

Hello Bev, yes we survived the storm, was driving at the time, got pretty hairy at one point! Love your photos and doilies and the pretty flowers. I remember the Smurf's well, think we will be off to watch the movie these coming holidays. As for the sex scene hmmm, you always know how to make us smile! Enjoy the rest of your week.

Our weather people here do the same thing. Good to hear about the rain, but the wind I can do without. That is one thing that scares me. Sounds like you had a wonderful Winter Garden and good luck with your Spring/Summer. What a beautiful tray of loveliness. A beautiful cover you did and the beads are perfect for it.
Hope you get some more time on your new "Tea Garden" project.
Have a wonderful day.
Blessings, Bobbie Lynn
