But, alas, this time he was actually innocent.
I've been canning tomatoes and I canned one group using an unfamiliar canner. (I'm one of the strange breed of women who prefer the cold pack method) A couple of the jars I canned "failed". It's been several years since I've had that experience - probably about 30 years. Wish me luck on my next batch!
Look what my hubby found while mowing: Isn't it too cute? Of course, when it's all grown up and nibbling in our gardens, the cuteness has a tendency to go away.
Anyway, it was missing part of one foot. We never know how the animals we find get injured - it could have been trapped in something, attacked by something - or, it could even be a birth defect.
How's this for a cheap makeover? We all have an idea of how expensive chaise mattresses can be. We've had these for at least four years.
They're still in good condition (comfort-wise) because they really don't get much use. But, the colors have really faded and they look pretty haggard.
I've had a large fabric bolt of this wonderful Waverly fabric for quite awhile; it came in a box lot and was so pretty I knew that (eventually) we'd have a use for it. I did a quick cut and sew (a simple 3-sided sew, shaped like a super-huge pillowcase) and voila!
A new look for the patio! I had enough left over for a table cover, too.
We had just painted our patio and it sure freshened it up. The cost of the makeover? Less than $1, since it came in an auction box lot!
