I am having a very great day! We are having our first cold front of the year. It's sunny and 60 with a cool breeze-weather perfection. I went to the library to pick up a new book by one of my favorite authors: Falling Together: A Novel by Marisa De los Santos. When I got home, there was a package of containing 6 cans of Krylon spray paint that I won from the CSI Project! Then I worked on some accessories for my daughter's Halloween Costume without a single fail!
Can you guess who's she is going to be?
Ugly Purse from Goodwill. (.50)
I started w/ a plain umbrella and some tin foil. ($2)
I shaped the foil into parrot head.Using my paper mache skills that I learned making my Death Star Pinata, I covered the bird head. I covered the umbrella w/ a garbage bag to protect it, b/c I am a messy crafter.
After it dried, I painted it to look like a parrot head. It's not perfect, but I kind of love and it will be dark right? I will probably go spray some sealer on it.
To make her hat, I pulled a hat out of the dress-up box and attached small Christmas bulbs and daisy's. To make the edges wonky, I wet it down and used clothespins to fold it up until it dried.

I stole the shirt from my Mom's closet and made the tie and sash out of red satin.
I know that Mary usually wears a coat when she goes out, but my Mary lives in Texas and she would melt.
