From Lemons to Lemonade, a fun little post.

What is this silly little post all about you might be thinking.  

Well, this about taking a tragedy and using one's craft skills to save a few pennies next Christmas.

A few Christmases ago we attended a Christmas ornament exchange.  Although I don't have a picture of the original ornament my wife received, it looked similar to photograph one.  Anyway, during the gathering she dropped it and moose shattered, leaving only the head and garland relatively intact.  The following Christmas, I attended the same annual gathering, with the mounted moose head as my ornament for the exchange....  A piece of scrap wood and busted moose - Cha-ching - $5.00 saved.

From lemons to lemonade!

Thanks for stopping by.
Nice save!

Ryan/// ~sigh~ I blew up another bowl. Moke told me "I made the inside bigger than the outside".

Appears to be a great save.

Turned that "dead" moose into a real trophy!  (sorry, just had to say it 😀)
It was a great save and you save $5.00 to boot!
With inflation it probably was more like $10.00

Like the ornament and the story that goes with it.    Cartoon is good too.


Have you no pride... those boots... and four of them!

I'll loan you two, but you'll have to hire the other two

If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD

No, I have little pride.  Leave it to you to notice the poor moose’s boots.
