But alack and alas, it is just potatos and meatloaf. Really flavourful and yummy on both counts (ladies, if you aren't using 50% ground pork AT LEAST in your meatloaf, give yourself a spank RIGHT NOW. And then go make a meatloaf.) but potatos and meatloaf nonetheless.
DH could not stomach very much of the potatoes, apparently he's a pretty visual eater and couldn't get past the fact that they were green. However, my meatloaf was forgiven.
I'll be honest, aside from the joy in nicole's eyes when I plonked a cake down on the supper table, I think I really only amused myself on this one, as DH was not feeling super awesome at the time. But I really and truly amused myself, so who gives a poo. Ha. I heart me.
If you are my swap partner, perlabelle, and you happen to read my blog, LOOK AWAY. LOOOOK AWAAAAAAY.
It was the One Tiny Thing swap, and the theme I picked out of her list of five was mermaids. I call this the Mermaid's Treasure necklace. The shell is 1" approx, to give you a basic idea. I decided that I would make a necklace of 'found items' that a mermaid would consider to be treasure. Holding it together is an old fishing hook I mangled (and removed the sharp edges of course)... some of the items are vintage : heart locket, key, blue rose bead.
