My Lon Ornament
Hello pals! THANK YOU for all of the positive messages you are sending out about our little story on TV! Thank you!!! It really was fun, and I love how it turned out! Just wanted to bop in and show you something that makes me smile. Last Saturday night, our neighbors, Dan and Bridget hosted a lawn ornament exchange party. CLEVER!!! The whole thing was so well done....right down to the decor. After our exchange we watched Gnomeo and Juliet on a screen in the backyard! So fun!
Above is a picture of my contribution to the ornament exchange....the rock...not the man.....the man's name is Lon. Get it?! It's a "LON Ornament". I painted LON on the ornament. Oh man, I crack myself up. We had a few laughs over it....but alas, Lon and his wife didn't win his own ornament....Mike and Drinda got to take him home. (again, the rock, not the man)
This project has now led me into another obsession...painting faces on rocks. Wouldn't it be great to have a bunch of funny faces looking up at you in the evening when you weed your garden? I rather think so.
