Friday Show & Tell

Lindy - Decatur, GA

The Register Twins - Gayle and Gwyne
What are they up to? Hands raised. Big smiles if not outright laughter. Are they emulating a roller coaster ride? Did the home team just get a home run? Is there a spooky ghost on this side of the camera? What do you think?


Megan - Roswell, GA

My 5-year-old's painful little toes.
Admit it. You've been aching for us to post a photo of toes. Rejoice. The day has arrived. This photo is of my son's little piggies (try not to weep with joy). The poor kid - who of course loves to run - has naturally ingrowing toenails on both middle toes, with slightly less aggressive ingrowing on his big toes. We've tried everything: trimming the sides of his nails, "turtle bites," you name it. Any suggestions? Please?


Pam - Dacula, GA

Wasabi Green Seed Bead Mix
I bought this to make ankle bracelets, intending to place the beads randomly on the wire to create unique, one-of-a-kind designs. Sounds easy, right? Well, it was a great idea in theory but quite difficult in practice, as I am apparently obsessed with symmetry and pattern. 
In the end, I was able to let go of my need to control the outcome of this project and create a lovely anklet that any abstract peace loving wasabi eater would love. And I think I learned a little something about myself in the process.

Lindy, I think the twins are doing a mini version of "the wave." Am I right?

Megan, I hate it that your baby suffers with that affliction! (I started to say "I'm sorry" and edited it.) Give him a smooch from Auntie Pam!

Megan said...

Pam, your "sorry" comment gave me the best giggle of the day! I hear you about symmetry... I am right there with you. Where's the final product? Etsy?

Lindy, my vote is they were watching the US Women's Soccer team. Yes? No?

Lindy said...

Ha! They are, in fact, reacting to Red's request to..."Act surprised!" Too funny, right?

Megan, poor Boy Child. Wish I had some suggestions, but I'm clueless about little piggies. Epsomsalt soaks perhaps? Tee tree oil? Hmmm.

Pam, OMG that is one jumble of beads all favorite colors of mine. I know there is a wasabi eating woman around who would love to be adorned with your masterpiece. I might actually be her. Where to buy, please and thank you.

Too cute!

Love the roller coaster pictures. They look like they are having fun.

Those little piggies are adorable. No idea on how to help. Definitely something to get an idea on before he becomes an adult.

Love those beads!!! I'm going to have to go over and check out those ankle bracelets.


Pam Asberry said...

Hey Tami, I still need to put clasps on those ankle bracelets. I will try to get that done and get them listed later today!

So here's the link to the Wasabi Green Peacenik Ankle Bracelet. There's more where this one came from! :-)

Twins, piggies and beads. Cute, cute, cute. Y'all are something else.

I hope you mean that in a GOOD way, Annie! :-)
