I Lost my Meatballs.........serously I did!

Good Thursday afternoon my friends. It is a fantabulous spring day out there and I did to get out for an hour or so, but the 3 yr old needed lunch, which mind you, he is now refusing to eat. See Thursday is not much better than Monday! So the progress in the flower beds has stopped.........again. It was really no better when I got there as I went to plant the seeds and gee, guess what? I guess that from children repeatedly knocking my bowl of seeds over, there weren't but a few left to plant, "sigh", oh well, there are more at the store
As for my meatballs.... for those of you replying to my post on FB about men and their severe obnoxious ways when talking on the phone last night, you may know that I lost my meatballs which I am assuming, is telling me that I have lost my mind. Hmmph, I think that the talking pot was enough to assure me of that already, maybe I didn't take the hint well enough. 
My daughter came home from work around 10 or so. She asked what we had for dinner, I responded with meatballs. Well, she started looking for them. She asked where they were, I of course said, in the refrigerator. In what? was the reply. The man whom we were conversing about on FB at this time, had removed himself from the phone and told her what they were in. She said they weren't there. Ok, so now I am thinking that she is blind or acting 7 instead of 27, as 7 yr. olds can't see a tree before they run into it. So I get up, looking all over for these meatballs, they are nowhere, nowhere that I see anyway. I am crazy now, because I know I washed the pan and put them away. For some reason she opened the pantry closet door, lo and behold, the meatballs were sitting on top of the coffee can on the floor. Why you are asking, would I do that????? Really I don't know. What was I thinking, more like where was my brain? Ummm in hiding, like the meatballs? Was I thinking that the meatball trolls were going to take them in the middle of the night? Honestly, I have no recollection of putting them there at all. By this time I was rolling and in tears from laughing so hard. So to sum it all up, I lost my meatballs for sure.

Now for the talking pot. It has a new look already and it no longer talks to me. I am sharing the progress with you, as well as a bread box that I have been working on for quite some time. They will both be talking to me soon if I don't get busy! I had to do some filling on the back side and you can see that I sure can't cover up the wear on the inside, but you won't be seeing that anyway. I think that all of the trim will be burgundy. Are you seeing a face yet??

The breadbox is a special order from an Ebay customer and has been slow in progress for time limits and getting the design right, we have done step by step approvals on this one and you had best believe, I am ready for it to be done!
The sides will both be done and I will show you the other side as soon as I get a little farther with it.
This will be the front, the door lifts up and under the top.

So in ending, please hold on to your meatballs. I surely lost mine last night and by the time the weekend rolls around I sure hope I don't lose anything else!

Smiles and lots of blessings to all of you. Be creative!


  1. OMG, I'm laughin all over again,,,that was the funniest thing ever..and the trolls...o Lord the trolls are coming to get my meatball...I'm cryin from laughin so hard...and I'm glad the pot isn't talking to you anymore, I was a little concerned, only a little, the bread box is looking great! not that I would expect any less! Smile sunshine, maybe the trolls will come take the laundry out for me....

  2. Oh gee, I am laughing again, thanks Heather, the way you put that, where are my garden trolls and laundry trolls?? I am smiling!

  3. That breadbox is going to be awesome! I couldn't help chuckle when you mentioned the step by step. I too had a customer on Ebay that took me by the hand every step of the way, and guess what I was painting? A Gingerbread..:) Can't wait to see the finished product!

  4. I put a turkey loaf in the cabinet once. We didn't find it until it was nice and stinky and maggot-ie. YUM YUM. I love watching the progression of the ugly pot, ever since you adopted the poor wretched thing. Others adopt pets, you adopt pots.

  5. Jody what is it about the gingerbread? I just wanted to let her see exactly what I was doing, she is a collector of my gingers from Ebay and she's great, but she wanted a different pattern, something that I didn't really like, shame on me, but just wasn't my style of painting, so I changed some things and made sure she knew what I was doing before I started it, smooth sailing now!! I hope I can get some time in on it this over the weekend, I have so many more things to get done.

  6. it is good to see that I am not alone in putting things in the wrong places, I am still laughing about it, I just don't have a clue what I was doing! Yes, the pot, I am getting ready for the third basecoat, I do adopt pets, but I have enough of them, so I am on to pots now, lol. I still can't believe she was selling that, there's just no way you could have cooked a thing in it, but I came along! Saved it's life!

  7. Hello Eileen, what a brilliant story about the meatballs - that really made me laugh!!

    If we have lost our mind here in the UK we call it losing our marbles! Which sounds similar to meatballs so maybe got translated into meatballs over time in the US - who knows.

    Love the pot & bread bin - looking forward to seeing them progress.

  8. Thanks Jane, I try to find the humor in the really ridiculous things that I do and the hard days that I have at times, gets me through it and can make someone else smile! I am going to hire some painting elves to help me get more done! Think that will work? Take care Jane!

  9. Can I come live next door to you??? We seem to have so much in Common. (^_~)

  10. Yes, Kris, I can put my landlord out and we can be back in the woods by ourselves, how does that sound? Lots of room for kids to play for sure!! We do have alot in common don't we?? LOL
