Crafts, Bikes and Carrot Legs

So I am wrapping up my craft swap project.  Initially it was to be framed in a black shadowbox frame but I just wasn't feelin' the black.  Too harsh for those sweet little Octonauts.  It was a nice day today so Elvis and I broke out his bike and my spray paint and this girl got busy.

I also got started on a couple of lamps I found at the thrift store.  I failed to take "before" pictures but they were ugly and will look better.  I'll show them when they are complete.  But check the frame.  Nice, no?  It will be SO much better.

Elvis rode his bike. Yes we still have snow.  Quite a bit.  But today gave us a glimpse of Spring, I can't wait.

Now onto a totally unrelated but "happened today so I will mention it" subject.  This is why I like helping with dinner.  Mr. Handsome is the chef in this house but I occasionally offer up some suggestions. Tonight we went with a Tikki Masala Curry.  My suggestion and I thought adding some veggies was a good idea.  Being the sous-chef at the Hive I am in charge of chopping etc.

Look what I came across!

  Oh yes, those are carrot legs ladies and gentlemen. Gorgeous, crazy carrot gams.  That carrot is one "tall, drink of water."  They didn't make it into the curry, I am saving them.  Hoping that some vegetable swap might show up sometime soon and I can construct a body for those legs.  Rutabaga breasts.  Radish cheeks.  She will be the hottest vegetable in town.  This is why you should eat your vegetables!

Va, Va, Voom for Veggies!  It's a whole new campaign.


  1. I'm laughing so hard! When I saw the carrot I thought to myself "There is no way that made it into the dinner!" haha!
    So great to see Elvis riding so fast!

  2. LOL! Love the carrot legs! Can't wait to see your craft swap :)

  3. I love the carrot legs, they are quite sexy.... hmmmm. :) I agree with the Va Va Va Vooom!

  4. awesome! That is my photo! Errr, photo that I took! :) cool!

  5. I can't wait to see your finished projects!
    I also can't wait to see the veggie lady!
    Our snow is all melted. Hopefully yours will melt soon too!
