A HINT of gold: CHEVRON and lines.

Oh how the mouse has been needing company. At home and the office space. FINALLY I got around to making them. Simple and too easy. Had everything but the cork piece. Found it at a garage sale for 0.50 cents! Score.

Oh this 1 can of gold spray paint has lasted me.

I eyeballed the lines as I taped it up. It is about an inch apart.

Next you are going to use your X-acto knife and cute out certain pieces that you would want your pattern.

Be sure to be outside or in an open space before using your spray paint. I was in my patio with the nice touch of pine scraps on the balcony. Let the spray paint dry for about 10-15 mins. Spray a second coat if your heart desires for it. Then let it dry another 10-15 mins before peeling off the painters tape.

AND Viola! Finito. A hint of chevron and lines. My mouse finally has a companion.

See what happens when the gloomy weather rolls around? My craft creativity oozes out of me. Hope you enjoyed this and happy Wednesday.

SOCKS for the toes and feet.

 

Spring and I am talking about socks? Another one of my many fetish. Yes, Oregon Spring is quite an odd ball compared to what I am use to in the warm and sunny Florida.  Ever since I moved to the West coast I live in socks.  In Florida I only wore them when needed, which was almost close to never, unless I was going for a run with my sneakers.  During the winter and spring here in Oregon I can’t sleep without them.  My toes and feet love me for covering them during these seasons.  While strolling around Target I came across a few socks.  The chevron pattern one caught my eye; one of the many favs.  Scored some wool socks for 3 bucks.  Wool is a pricey piece of fabric and great for people who have arthritis to keep those joints warm and covered for flexibility in the cold weather.

Photos captured by me with Nikon D80 and Nikkor 50mm lens.  Happy Monday and keep those toes and feet warm if your Spring is still in the 30s and 40s like mine!
