Floral Fun

The little one is getting taller and taller everyday. Some of her pants have become “high-waters,” yet they still fit otherwise. It’s still hot out, so I decided to sass them into a pair of faux Culottes.

I’m not going to write out a long tut, however, this is what I did in a nutshell.

  • evenly snipped off  hems
  • folded them upwards/secured with hem tape/iron
  • hot glued flowers around hem
  • lightly pressed with iron

Her refurb’d duds matched perfectly with an old sun dress that has gotten too short. She now wears it as a shirt (ha ha ha). Cuteness.

I love Nutella as well – not for eating – but because the empty jars make great drinking cups. Two delights in one, yes! I may sass my cup up with some non-toxic paints, I’m itching to delve into the world of paiting.

Nutella comes in a variety of glass and plastic jars. Travel snacks are avaiable too. Since recycling isn’t a major concern for many here in Saudi Arabia, I opt for the glass jars. Hey, just doing my part.

In other news, looks like the world have gone Nutella crazy. There’s all sort of cake, pie and cookie recipes on-line, craft blogs galore and all sorts of candids. Some folks have “how to make your own Nutella” tuts out and others have gone as far as declaring a day in Feb. as World Nutella Day and deemed it “a way of life”. There’s a Face Book and Twitter following as well. Uh? A bit much don’t you think?

The original recipe was developed and released in 1949, registered by the Italian company Ferrero in 1963. Nutella is sold in over 75 countries.
