Y’all…..my inner Dolly Parton comes out when I have something exciting/frightening to share…….it was something else.
I wanted to compare it to an Oreo.
Like some AWESOME stuff mashed between some really CRAPPY stuff but I like the chocolate wafer just as much as the cream filling.
I will have details.
And stories to tell.
But now, I am knee-deep in the laundry.
I think I heard my washing machine sigh loudly when he saw me this morning.
Or maybe that was me sighing loudly……
They are parties where you go to see cool things other bloggers are making.
I like to think of it as a big ole’ quilting bee.
Except no quilts are being made.
And we aren’t in the same room.
OKAY, it’s nothing like a big ole’ quilting bee.
But it’s fun.
And I have found cool projects over the years thanks to these parties.
What is a vignette you ask?
I have no idea.
Well, I know but I don’t know the real dictionary term.
So I will tell you what my definition of a vignette is.
A vignette is a studly man who plays doctors on TV.
No silly, that is Anthony Edwards.
Maybe you have a little end table.
And you put a little pumpkin on it.
Then you add a candle.
You, my friend, have just created a vignette. Here is my take on a vignette:
I just put all sorts of pumpkins in this tray.
I have had these pumpkins for years.
Then added the boo sign I made a few years ago.
Just a Dollar Tree frame + computer paper with the word Boo typed on it.
Essentially free to me because I bought nothing recently to create this.
I also have another “vignette” or “fall stuff on a table” in my dining room:
Nothing fancy and again, just items I had.
I didn’t have to go out and buy anything for fall to make both vignettes.
In fact, I haven’t had to buy anything for the past two years.
So there you go!
Creating a vignette on the down-low.
And Vignette in French means Kari is pretty.
So there’s that…..
