It may not be the first day of Christmas. Or even the second. But I won't let that stop me from posting 1) my Christmas Day and two-days-after-Christmas-lunch-with-the-husband's-grandmother outfits or 2) my new fruit-themed jewelry. Also, in case you hadn't noticed, in the first photo, I'm standing by a picture of -- yes, you see it -- fruit.
And now for something that doesn't involve actual fruit but is the color of a cartoon watermelon: this here elf.
Now, you may be thinking that this is especially weird because my last post was about the (fictional) murder of the Elf on the Shelf. But I assure you that this merry not-quite mite is in no such danger and is much safer at my house than he would be at Michaels (who knows what miscreants roam those aisles?). Even if earlier today I noticed that the husband had moved him from his spot at the base of the fireplace to a new perch on the steps. Then I moved him to the love seat to photograph him. He's still there. Let's see if the husband says anything.
Aw, too late. He came in not a minute ago with his knowledge all over his face. And then, obvi, he saw me writing this. Guess this kidnap-and-go-seek of a melony felony's over. Wait. Felony Melanie. That was Reese Witherspoon's character's nickname in Sweet Home Alabama. Which has nothing to do with anything.
Except . . . Melanie/Reese stealing from Michaels might make for a good movie. I can see it now: Craft Crimes: When Bitches Get Stitches. Only it would be "bitches" in an empowering way because Melanie/Reese would be lifting yarn and paint for creative geniuses in a women's shelter. Get ready for a montage starring graffiti. Also, a cameo from Bad Seed.
That's going to be my elf's stage name.
