Judicious Jewelry Jet

Last week, after my nerves had settled down after Irma, I needed to do a quick purge of something!

So, I looked around, and decided to grab my jewelry box.      Which I have not even opened since we’ve moved here, back mid-May!

Here it is:                                                                                                   Inside:

slob, humor, lots of jewelry junk

So.Many.Things.

slob, humor, jewelry box

Such an appropriate slogan!

An overwhelming pile of junk stuff.            Ok, ok, let’s separate it into categories.

Earrings:

How many sets of ears do I think I actually have????

Other things:

Whoa!!      Whaaaaaat???         Just start with the earrings.

Okay, deep breath!!        Strawberry earrings, 3 pairs exactly alike; so I can probably get rid of 2.      Good!       A brand new pair, with magnet, that have not even been opened!!   That I’ve had since 2011!!       Guaranteed I will not miss them!         And 1 single.      Jet!!   I don’t do singles, and certainly not posts anymore!!          See ya!

Now, out of ten items, only 2 left.       Excellent!!

Next!!

slob, humor, shamrock earrings              2 shamrock sets; I can only wear 1 pair at a time, and St. Patrick’s Day is only once a year, so 1 set has to go.      Shoo!!

slob, humor, sparkly earrings

All the sparkles!!

                                                                                I don’t like the pink ones, because they snag.                                                      And I’m just over the others.

Whew!       Those were all pretty easy to work thru.         But,   Dun Dun DUN!!       Now here comes all the purples!!!!

slob, humor, all the purple earrings
All the purples!

10 pairs of purples, to be exact.

I hope I can do this without crying!!

I let them all go.       Say what??  

I let them all go…..

And I didn’t even cry!!

Next!  slob, humor, light bulb earringsslob, humor, DD2 made these

These pretty cross ones were made for me by DD2.    Not going anywhere!!       The light bulbs are my only Christmas ones.        Staying!

Next!

Melinda, I just wanna tell you, ya’re doing good!!      I’m proud of you!        Thanx!                   I appreciate that!

slob, humor, 2 misc earrings, and a bobby pin      Huh, well, easy enuff, be gone!

These are tie pins, so technically jewelry, I guess??

Honor roll pin from  high school???    college????       I didn’t even remember I had it, so no pain to let it go.         DCT pin, I know is from HS.        Don’t even care now.       Bye!     And tiny baby feet, to protest abortion.        I will keep 1 set, just not both.  

Next!!

Charms:

slob, humor, necklace charms
I don’t wear necklaces ever, so….

The purple heart, and the strawberry can go.       The 2 pix charms, I have larger sizes of both pix, so they can go.          The HS key??        I’m keeping, because I lost my class ring, so this is in lieu of that.

Now onto more misc. stuff that is not jewelry!

The clear cover is to my seam ripper.       It will go back on there, so I don’t lose a finger!    Scissors will go in sewing stuff.        Ya think??          Foreign coins are from Mama.              I care nothing about them, and she cares a lot!        So, back to her they go!            The amethyst I’m keeping for now.            And the angel is from Bubba, so she stays too.

I forgot about 2 other pair of earrings, till I was scrolling thru my phone, but I got rid of them, so no pix necessary.

NOW:   Introducing my new and improved jewelry box!  

slob, humor, jewelry bottle, not box!
My new jewelry box!

 

 

 

 

 

                        FYI, jewelry bottle might be more descriptive.


I purged so hard!!      I really am proud of myself!       Numbers gone:

Earrings:  46/56!!         Charms:  4/5      Tie tacks: 3/4      Coins: 2/2      Misc: 3/5

58 outta 72  things gone!!

And as Jen says, “I never have to touch them again!”

Strawberry Strolls

Everybody already knows I love PP, right??

Well last week, I proved (once again!)   just how much.

For her birthday party, she requested strawberry cake, with pink icing, and a cherry on top.

So, I duly bought the mixes,    ahem    Who bought the mixes??         To be technical, I did. I just didn’t actually go to the store.       (Oh, what would I ever do without XH, and Sweet Friend??        My whole matrix would collapse!)

Anyway, the ingredients were purchased, by whomever isn’t relevant.

slob, humor, strawberry cake mix

Birthday girl’s request.

and proceeded to bake!       Yes, ME!     Bake!

slob, humor, strawberry cupcakes, ready to bake

Not picture perfect, but made with love!!

When she got home from day care, I let her frost them, and put the “Cherries” on top.

slob, humor, frosted cupcakes, with sprinkles

Yes, we’re pretending those little dots are cherries!

[No way was I gonna spend all that money on a jar of maraschino cherries, when the kids would just probably spit them out!!     I’m not Pinterest Omie, or anything!]

These are the survivors, from the party, that we had at a park.      So all the clean up required was to throw the trash away!!        No sweeping, mopping, nuttin!!        No decorating either!         Boy, weren’t we smart!           {And broke, but that’s beside the point!}

Now, back to loving her so much.         Did I ever mention I’m allergic to strawberries?? Along with the gluten, and blah, blah, blah??              I made cupcakes, that I couldn’t even eat!!         That’s love, folks!

Rolls’ Roles

I mean teepee rolls, of course!       And the many roles they can play in our lives.

Pig pen:

slob, humor, pig pen

Unhappily, the rest of the pig didn’t survive the raid of the 2 little Indian girls.

Now I can de-clutter the poor little pig’s head.   OR- I can make hog’s head cheese!    Anybody up for that one??        Of course, it might taste a little rubbery…..

Giraffe hobble:

slob, humor, giraffe hobbled
Now he ain’t going nowhere any time soon!! I’ve got him hobbled good!!

(At least we will pretend so!)

Animal Corral:  

Boy, Goggling "animal corral made from tp roll" sure saved me a lot of time! It brought up this, and the heart Stamper, AND the Doll crowns!!   
slob, humor, tp animals

This is not exactly what I had in mind, but it’s so cute, I’m going with it!!   Pinterest

Doll crown:

Bracelet:

slob, humor, tp roll bracelets

Bracelets that might fit PPJr!! LearnCreateLove

Ring for me:

slob, humor, tp roll slice as ring

I have very plain taste in jewelry.

Stamper- heart shape on paper:

slob, humor, tp roll as heart stamper

Not my baby. Why bother going to all the work of making something, when you can just look on Pinterest for an image??

Lazy woman’s way to craft!!

Cord keeper:   Tame Cords

“Keep extension cords, Christmas lights and electronic adapters tidy and tangle-free when there not in use by winding them up and slipping them inside of a toilet paper roll. You can even make a note on the roll to remind you what the wire is for.”

This site will give you a wealth of other uses.      I’m only listing the ones I thought of myself!

 I was hoping for a visual here….        Found one!!        (You can find literally anything you want to on Google, right??)

slob, humor, tp roll cord keepers

OurThriftyIdeas.com                        These are even pretty!

Christmas craft angel:

slob, humor, Christmas angel from tp roll

Not mine!!          This is from : LearnCreateLove.com

I had all these grand plans, of staging these pix, with the girls….      But I’m tired!!             And Google and Pinterest just sing their siren calls constantly!!

3 outta 9 ain’t bad!         To mis-quote Meatloaf.

Update: My friend Patience, of Pressing Patience, sent me this:

slob, humor, Pinterest meme

Thanks, P!

And of course, I HAD to add it!!

Today we’re serving more military memes.        Thanking the troops who have fought, and died to free us, and keep us free!          Thanks to everyone, all the way back to the Revolutionary War.

Memorial Memes

Ok, this Monday, we are doing memorial memes for Memorial Day.     No funnies, just respect.

slob, humor, military memorial

We need to remember our fallen military.

       This one makes me want to cry, the father mourning his courageous son. 

slob, Memorial DAy  slob, Memorial Day

Today we remember, and celebrate ALL our fallen military.     Whatever branch, whatever war or conflict.       They died for our freedom.      It’s our duty to live in a way that honors their sacrifices.

Thank you God, that we live in a free country, and thank You for all the brave souls who fought to keep us that way.

slob, Memorial Day

slob, Memorial Day

I used to blithely say “Happy Memorial Day.”     Till someone called my attention to it.   It’s not a happy day.     It’s a somber day.     It’s a thankful day, but not frivolous.

Stay safe, thank a veteran, and be sure to tell them, you’re glad they made it back alive.
