Christmas on Labor Day.

Monday, September 6, 2010

it is WAY too early to be talking about Christmas.
i know.
now that our 90-degree days are over & lovely fall is upon us,
well, Christmas will be here before we know it.
let me just say, i am one of those people,
who gets outwardly P-I-S-S-E-D while meandering (wait, meander?  heh!  
who am i kidding?!  when was the last time i 'meandered' ANYWHERE with my children?')
what i meant to say was,
i get outwardly P-I-S-S-E-D while RUNNING through the aisles of Target,
children hanging off, in & around the card, yelling, 'CAN I GET THAT?  CAN I GET THIS?  WHAT ABOUT THAT?  OH!  I NEED ONE OF THOSE!'
(which is why i'm running, before i have a nervous breakdown & leave one of them behind in the barbie section.)
oh my gosh. . .i keep going off on a tangent.  
ANYWAY, running.  screaming. and i'm so SUPERBLY annoyed that the Christmas decor is out already and it's NOT EVEN OCTOBER!  we haven't even gone through the TWO OTHER HOLIDAYS YET!'
and then i chill out, once we're checked out & away from the distruption & back in the euphoric-producing loveliness that is the inside of my mini-van.
but i MUST show these off.
a little 'CHRISTMAS SNEAK PEEK,' if you will.
these are some of the most beautiful, handcrafted toys i've ever seen.
HAND-MADE.  
from my extremely talented father.
isn't it beautiful???
right now, his little workshop is a buzz, has he's building, sanding & putting every last ounce of love in to these trucks before the holidays begin.
these are just a sneak peek, here on my blog,
but will be up on my dad's website soon, with more information (dimensions, materials & pricing.)
they DO come natural, like this, & can of course be painted by you or gosh, think of how busy this would keep your little ones on a snowy-negative-40 degree-day in february, painting away, while you sip your latte & eat bon bon's on the couch?!  (sounds lovely, huh?)
i will say, we have two of these for jack, one of which he took markers too (instead of paint.)  
AND this sweet semi-truck, is a GREAT size for 1-year-olds & up!
even your daughter could paint it pink & send all her barbies & my little pony's on a road trip to the kitchen in the back of this rig!
so, please contact my dad, 
through his website, for more info!!!
and happy labor day!
