Don’t have a tree in your front yard to decorate?
Well, here’s a little tip/how-to so that you can create an instant tree in your yard.
(NEW TRIVIA QUESTION IS BELOW)
My husband has been doing this for years. He takes a cut off piece of PVC pipe and pounds it into the ground where he wishes the tree to be. Then he goes to the nearest real tree, cuts off a branch and then places that branch into the pipe. The pipe makes the holder for the branch and it looks like a real tree!
After Easter is over, the branch and pipe come back out.
The grandson hasn’t had a chance to decorate our tree yet, hopefully today, since it’s so beautiful outside. This picture is from last year.
So, I’ve not done anymore stitching on the pansy candle mat. I’ve been so busy with spring cleaning that my entire day and evening last night was spent cleaning and best of all… ironing freshly washed curtains and drapes.
I still have to finish the dining room and the kitchen and then clean the upstairs bathroom today .. then I’ll be done. But I really don’t expect any stitching time until Monday.
So … this gives more time for more trivia questions.
Since I’m doing a giveaway next week for the pansy candle mat that I’m making, every post that I make until that time, I will ask a trivia question that relates to something in my previous blog entries to give the lucky winnner one extra chance/entry into the next giveaway.
Yesterdays trivia winner(s) are “anonymous” Lisa because she answered correctly that Jen is a teacher, but I was looking for the more specific answer that Laura from Appleberrycottage gave, which is an ESL teacher (English as a Second Language)
So they both win one extra entry in the next giveaway which will be the Pansy Candle Mat.
I feel the need to give a boobyprize award to Brenda, over at PumpkinPatchPrimitives too. Because she made me laugh out loud at her random guess of “Belly Dancer”, Brenda will get one extra entry for the giveaway too.
Ok, so here’s the next trivia question. The two people that answer this question the best will get an extra entry for the pansy giveaway.
Casserole Carol and her family will be coming over on Sunday for Easter dinner. She’s bringing food with her to share.
The next TRIVIA QUESTION ….
How did Casserole Carol get her nickname and why should I be worried about her bringing food on Sunday?
I doubt that I’ll get a chance to blog until Monday, so you’ll have the entire weekend to figure out the answer!
Happy Easter everyone … weather forecasts are predicting a beautiful day!
