Father's Day Makeover
This weekend past was Father's Day and we pulled out all the stops to show Legoman how much we appreciated him. There were homemade cards (I cut out the clothes and Liongirl did the rest), our cat seems to have received a few extra legs for good measure,
And then of course Roboboy wanted to make one of these too, (do not ask me what is going on with all our necks, but given that he rarely draws people we will take what we can get).
There was a sleep in for Legoman followed by French toast and gifts of the Bonds variety. And then Liongirl scheduled in him in for a little "Fashion B'Pashion" whereby she trots around wielding my old makeup pots and brushes and attacks anyone who sits still long enough. Poor Legoman.
At least she had been practicing on her dolls,
And her friends. Unfortunately this involved a real pot of blue eye shadow that was liberally applied as both a lipstick,
and full facial mask. Thank goodness for best friends who are thoughtful enough to coordinate their frocks.
In other news I haven't been op shopping as much lately as it feels wrong to be bringing home more stuff amidst the great purge of our recent declutterings. However, I didn't pause in the slightest a few weeks ago before snaffling up this lovely vintage dolls rocking chair,
and some more of my favourite pyrex pattern,
with matching lid ( I have never seen one of these before, usually the lids are missing or are clear glass).
Back soon with new plans, more pyrex and Spring in my step.
