one fact and one dream and at least one frog: we need YOU to comment and win big!

ONE FACT AND ONE DREAM! Go to comments and give us your fact and dream, and I will randomly choose a winner! Prize is, drumroll please, i will mail you a pressed 4 leaf clover! As I said, I found 15 Monday and another 12, a lucky week :)  I want to share!

OK, your dream can be anything on your mind, but I will admit I had a real dream last night that is recurring and UGLY.  It involves preparing to pack the uhaul and move, which we did 6 years ago.  The real move was perfect and well timed, the dream was filled with deadlines, anxiety and packing boxes.  What a waste of dream time! Couldn't I dream of beaches and bikinis instead? My fact is that our rains have yielded a boatload of clovers, and I bet I find MORE four leaf clovers today :)  I dream of THAT too....go to comments now and give one fact and one dream!

 I mentioned the other day I gave myself a mug, above left. I love the shape and pattern, so made more like it PLUS a small teapot, above middle....and, well, Jacci asked for a turtle butter dish, above left......also good for one of those red round cheeses, eh? Below, speaking of frogs, is a freshy fired teapot with a frog in spring green....mmmm mmm good!

I think you should start looking for the roots of those 4 leaf clovers, and start growing them and distributing them. I see flower ladies with baskets of them outside casinos. Dream/fact: I never was good at following instructions.

speaking of FROGS, you guys are so funny, I couldn't figure out why people were putting frog names there...I get it. You thought I was asking for frog names? I was just saying "at least one frog" because of the pictures of my work!

Joe Troncale said...

We follow instructions to the "T" even if we don't understand them!

Joyful Things said...

FACT: when walking with your head down you find an insane(!) amount of four leaf clovers.
DREAM: that you'll find a twenty dollar bill while searching for four leaf clovers.

I can't wait to see the turtle dish finished. I love that thing!

Julia said...

Fact: four leaf clovers bring luck, five leaf clovers bring money, two leaf clovers bring love
Dream: That someone will come do all of my work today so I can sleep. HINT HINT

Claudia from Idiot's Kitchen said...

Fact: I won the last give away from Gary (very cute mother (of cats) day card) so I am already lucky.

Dream: That my hard drive that crashed this week will be saved with all my files undamaged. Please!


Karen (formerly kcinnova) said...

Fact: The boys are home from college.

Dream: That they find paying jobs before my husband runs out of manual labor to keep them busy!

Jeepers, creepers, where'd you get those peepers ♫♪♯♫

Reverend Awesome said...

I hate dreams like that. Where you wake up all tired.

Fact: Saturday our shelves will be done and I can put things away!
