29 Years of Marriage and What do I Get, sheep's Clothing, huh???

Yepper, sheep's clothing, lol. One whole white fleece all 7 pounds 6 ounces of it. Well it will be white. It is in raw form (dirt, hay, etc), so I have to do all of the work but it will be so worth it and I saved a ton of money buying it this way. It even comes with sheep poop, hahaha, I'll save that part and give it to hubby for fertilizer, hubby loves his yard!! I'll be dying some and I think I am going to give spinning a try after it is all cleaned up.

oh yeah, here's a little more, don't worry there is only 4 ounces of grey wool here, for them Witch Sculptures of course. Yeah, this one needs to be cleaned to. It's a good thing my husband loves me and he is so use to the way I buy supplies (huge bulk). If I need one I might as well buy 50 or more because its always cheaper in bulk than when you buy just 1 or 2. Okay, this is my story and I'm sticking to it, lol.

He bought me new curtains for the kitchen. 28 years ago these gifts would have gotten him in the doghouse, now I love getting things for the house, lol.

New rugs for the bathroom. Can you tell I love color!! Not so much on my walls but everywhere else. He bought me more clay, I seem to be going through it like crazy lately. And he took me out to one of the best dinners I have had in a long time (The Texas Road House). OM Goodness was it ever delicious!!! We had a wonderful anniversary!! I feel extremely spoiled especially since all he got was the movie "2012" that he wanted which I enjoyed to, boy did he get ripped.

Here's one of my WIP's

She still needs a lot of work, more paint, fabric, accessories, some hair would probably be nice. She is a challenge piece, can't give away what yet. I only have about two and a half weeks to finish her. With Easter only two weeks away, I have a few things I need to finish for the grand kids so I hope I can get it all done in time.

And I just had to share this!! We found this in our attic when we bought our house in October. Isn't it just screaming Cool Halloween Art all over it. From what I could find on the Internet they quit making this Rattlesnake Beer sometime in 1997. It is from New Orleans, Louisiana.

Oh yeah and still coming in the next day or two. Photo tag not once but twice!!
Have a Great Day!!


  1. Happy Anniversary! Isn't it funny how our wants change as we get older and wiser? LOL I can't wait to see what you do with all of that wool. Take lots of pictures,please. It would be so cool to see it going through the stages. Your WIP is so wicked! Can't wait to see it when it is finished!


  2. Brenda you are a lucky gal. Happy Anniversary!!
    You know your right I rather have something for the house or stuff to work with.LOL Awww how we change as we get older.

  3. I'm so glad you had a great Anniversary! And lots of loot I see, I wouldn't know where to start with all that luscious wool! Your Mr. Right is good for you...enjoy creating.

    Warm hugs to you Brenda,


  4. Happy Anniversary! I totally hear you about how the definition of a good gift changes. lol

    Anxious to see your witch completed!!! Well, I'm assuming witch ~ green skin, black dress. ???????

  5. Happy Anniversary, Brenda! I love getting things for the house, too. I told my DH the other day I wanted carpet in the LR for my anniversary next year - and I wasn't kidding! LOL! Love the WIP, can't wait to see her finished. And the wool is cool - haha! xox Pam

  6. two are just to cute. It looks like you have your work cut out for you with that all natural sheep's wool. You'll have to take pics of your process. Your witch looks great so far, can't wait to see the final piece. So are you going to do Medusa's head for the beer bottle...very cool idea!

    Take care.

    Bright blessings,

  7. Your witch is looking good!
    I was lucky enough to get some wool last year in the same shape because it was being given away. We cleaned it up and still have lots of it left.
    Dinner out and some craft or house items are my perfect gift too--happy anniversary to you guys!! :)
