Friday The 13th..........

You may be wondering about the photo of hair color and Cheetos ............. and what they have in common. Maybe you are wondering about my current state of mind and why I would put this picture here. I am about to tell you.

I awoke this morning at 8 am. Late for me, but I am getting ready for the sleep deprivation that comes with the weekend. I dosed myself with the necessary amount of coffee and showered to ready myself for my weekly jaunt into town. I did my hair and applied make-up; so as not to scare the locals with my unpainted self. I stopped at the library and got more audio books to entertain me as I cook and sew, then went to the local market for the necessities of the sticky bun variety. All done in record time, I made it back to kamp before any swimmers arrived and relieved he who hates the office and phone. Then I did an about face and made him stay in the office so I could clean my restrooms. He was happy to agree since the other option would be for him to do them. I usually do them first thing while I am still in my happy haze of sleepiness.

I suppose you can now see where this story is going can't you? Cheetos, hair color ............ public restrooms. Logical? No, you say? I did not not have any tent campers last night. Didn't have anyone staying on that side of the park at all. Leads me to wonder who colored their hair in the rest room, while eating Cheetos and smashing them in the floor. Was it someone in a big rig, not wanting the mess in their bathroom? Was it a swimmer? Was it one person, or two? Was one coloring and one eating? Or was it a whole group with a look-out? I will never know, I just clean up the mess. Can't put surveillance in the bathrooms, don't you know?

Oh well, on to the next adventure. I am still hawking my wares here at the kampstore. Sock Monkeys are showing up everywhere.............



This one is pushing sunglasses ..............


I made some little dresses for my grand girls and a swimmer said I should display them and sell them .......


Summertime and easy is the key here. Bright colors and happy dots.


Sister dresses?




Hot pink and purple for a little princess.






Groovy dresses for a big and little sister. I can't take credit for this combination though. I seem to have acquired my very own personal shopper! Yvonne is living here and shops....... a lot. She is not shy about keeping me in the loop on big discounts and bargains. She found the fabric and the shirts for me. I told her to use her own judgement in choosing. Can I just say that she passed the test!


These are two of my personal favorites, just plain girlie. I might have to export these to Minnesota.
I refuse to let the rest room nastiness get me down today. Now I am off to the kitchen to create a brownie to die for while I listen to the voice of John Grisham tell a story and transport me to Mississippi and simpler times...............

Would you mind terribly if I stole that idea [for the dresses?] My goodness they are adorable. I would snatch up 5 or 6 if I was there and Wallene was a bit smaller. As is she is going to love this idea, just have to make them for a taller chickie. :)

I don't get why people just don't clean up after themselves. I just wasn't raised that way and don't understand it.

I would scope out the big rigs for someone with newly dyed hair and then drop the waste in their trash bucket. Passive aggressive? Yes. Satisfying that you caught them? Oh yeah.

jojo said...

interesting combo, but then again, not so much can really surprise you can it??
I always choose the passive/agressive method myself but then that's just how I roll.
Have a great weekend.

Those dresses are so cute! Your granddaughters must love them! I have been looking everywhere for a pink sock monkey. One of these days I might get lucky!

I'd put up a security camera anyway, just to see who caused what mischief.

Oh Kathy, those little sundresses are so cool. You are just so clever.

love the dresses! my little granddaughter would look so cute in those. totally love the sock monkeys hawking your wares.

i can't understand people. a good friend of mine works at a koret outlet store and yesterday they found some woman had taken 6-7 outfits into a dressing room, piled them up in the corner and used them for a toilet. disgusting! i don't think they caught who did it, either and they had to trash all those new clothes.

talented you are!!

Mamma has spoken said...

Love those dresses1 Think I might try to make one to fit me;o)
As for the cheetoes and hair coloring I took it that whoever was trying to match their hair to color of the cheetoes.....

Everyday Goddess said...

Those dresses are very cute!

Still confused about the Cheetos and hair color, probably better not to know.

Maybe it was a woman on the run. She'd probably just left some abusive jerkhead and needed to alter her appearance...I'm sure she was sending mental apologies the entire time for the mess she was leaving you but really needed to get on the road again. Of course, it could have been some insensitive teeny bopper who's used to someone else cleaning up her mess. Whatever the case, it's a crummy way to spend your time.

You are quite creative. I have admired the sock monkeys before and now these dresses. They're great! I'll wish you much luck with the sales.

Becky said...

I love the dresses very cute!

Hillbilly Mom said...

Nobody would ever consult me concerning fashion...but those dresses are OH SO CUTE! You are certainly a Krafty Kathy.

Pat said...

You are just too damn talented for one person! Seriously! You should sell your sock monkeys and clothes on Etsy.com

Oh, btw, sorry about the mess in the bathroom! Ha - only kidding!

RV Vagabonds said...

I think it would make me furious to provide nice facilities for folks who then trash it up. Grr!

On a side note--love the 50s "boomerang" formica! Growing up in Ohio we had the same pattern in turquoise in our kitchen.

It makes you wonder about the escaped Arizona fugitives (that they captured last night) - the man had died his hair dark during their time "on the lam". Hopefully they weren't in your camp, but guess you never know.
