‘storytime’

here’s another little drawing

many many happy hours spent like this back in the day

and here’s my last crafting endeavour:

bear-headed trash bin slipcover

bear-headed trash bin slipcover

it’s a trash bin slipcover, matching our bathroom tiles color

what i used:

shabby chrome trash bin, courtesy of our apartment previous dwellers

embroidery thread, most likely courtesy of my grandmother whom i never met, she passed away before i was born

baby rag with bear head , courtesy of some charity shop, bought to go under the cat’s and dog’s bowls to absorb some of the spilled water. i cut off the bear head and just kept it for no good reason at the time

and an odd shirt of an indefinable style, courtesy of my partner, bought  somewhere in mid 90’s.

when asked if he’ll ever gonna wear the shirt few years ago ( i could see it just hung there in the cupboard untouched for a decade or so) the answer was ”i wear it when i have a flue”.   and, surprise! he never did although the opportunity presented itself once or twice.

now every time i’m in the bathroom i see the bin and i smile. don’t need too much to cheer me up really.

and lastly here’s a couple of funtime ideas for you and one of an awesome naptime!

take care

and happy holidays to you all

p.s.  well, again, it’s not related to anything but have u heard about linda tirado ? while she is truly remarkable i don’t get why some commenters are so negative about her. thought it’s a russian-jealousy-of-the-underprivileged thing to get all upset when someone does something right for himself. i guess it’s just human nature although i’d rather prefer it was geografically/historically explainable…..
