Pom Poms go Coastal in Beach Cottage Land
Thu 9th, Sep, 2010
Poof! and she was gone under a pile of tissue paper pom poms…
If you Facebook with me you’ll know that every night I have been making a pom pom. For what reason I know not. See I told you my life is just so darn exciting, didn’t I?
The male teenage view on this compared to the girlie Miss BC view was interesting…
Teenager “mum, errrm what on earth is going on on the deck, you are losing it”
Miss BC “mummy I lurve those balls of puff! yum, can you make some for my room”
Me : ignoring stinky teenager “Oh darling, do I have to make more?! Oh ok I might just be able to manage it”
Mr BC : “everywhere I go there are little bits of white tissue paper cuttings”
Me : ”You know where the hoover is”
About what stinky teenagers think.
Because I think I am in love with balls of puffy white delight.
And I have to tell you that when I made these, the end bit when you start fluffing is about as much fun as one can have on one’s lap in the evening…I’ll let you make your own conclusions on that…
These are just right here, I don’t know what you think about them….
I thought these might be a bit too frothy, a bit too frou-frou?
But for me, not…sometimes I feel the lure of the girlie in me…you know, like dress-up? & these little beauties hit the mark smack bang in the middle…I like ‘em on the deck…with the bare wood and nautical stripes, kinda frivolity outside…
Anyway, I’m off to pick up Mr BC from the ferry…if you hear of a couple of men being smothered under a tonne of tissue paper pom-poms somewhere on the beaches you’ll know it was a stinky teenager and his dad.
You can find my smaller pom-poms, on the table, should you want to further add to the evidence that I am, yes, rather sad in the evenings fluffing for England, here…
