Mail sent (to) a-broad and a new friend!

So you know how I love Marmite Toasty and how she has been having a bad go of it lately with her knee surgery. She is going through so much pain and worry and yet she can still lighten everyone's day with her humorous "twaddle."

I wanted to send her a little something to put a smile on her face, and figured, she of all people could appreciate these:



A panty pouch and matching booby trap one. I gave a hint of this over here.

Backside.

I mean, really, who wouldn't smile with those dancing frogs doin' their thing!

Bright green check interior.

Back when I had my 100th post giveaway, Marmy, upon not winning, said she wasn't interested in any of my veggies bags anyway, since she didn't eat veggies. I replied to her that I knew she liked tea (being British and all, it runs in their veins) and I was going to make her some reusable tea bags from a pile of thongs I found in the dumpster behind the local whorehouse.

Now, eeeeeewwwww, I would really do THAT, but she doesn't know it (shhhh!) But I did make some tea bags out of lacy bits I got on some Goodwill finds.

Black and white lace tea bags.

They needed a tag for the end of the string, so I made labels that read (on one side) "Knackered Knickers Tea Bags," and on the other side, "When you CAN'T afford the very best."



I got an email from Marmy this morning, and the package did exactly what I had hoped it would... gave her a good laugh and brightened her day!

On a totally unrelated matter, I had some free time in my studio yesterday. I got a little silly.



Can you guess what this is??




See the martini glasses?? Got a guess yet?

Alright, here is more of a view:

LOVED the cocktail weiner!! Very cute. And you could do the weiners in all sorts of different fabric and sell or donate to the local police or fire depts (and you know how I love a man in a fire suit, so I'll drop them off) for scared little kids when they have them.

Can you guess who this is?

This is Angie the fireman-obsessed cocktail wiener!! I don't know if I can trust you to a) actually give away the wieners, and b) NOT take home all the firemen!

But I love you!

Whattaya trying to say?

Marcia said...

A cocktail weiner!!!!!!! Oh, you got me good! If you are this funny in writing, you must be a stitch to hang with. Thanks for brightening my day too.

Lisa said...

Gotcha, Marcia!! I don't know how my kids feel about my humor... I'm always singing the wrong words to songs (on purpose) and they roll their eyes!!

My mom always said, "Be your own best friend, then you're never alone!" So I kinda march to my own beat, ride on shopping carts through the aisles and really don't care what the world thinks of me!

And Angie~ I'm going to look for some fireman fabric in this wienie town of mine and make you a fire wiener!

angie said...

I would love a fireman's wienie!! Oh, you said a fireman wienie. I would love that, too.

Angie ~ Bombed out today, but will keep my eyes open for a fireman's wienie OR a fireman wiener!

Marmy ~ You are so welcome! Glad to bring a smile to your drug-addled face! Kisses!

Wendy said...

Ha! Ha! Ha! Cocktail Weiner. That is incredibly creative!

Yes. It should go on your Etsy shop.

You, my dear, have too much time on your hands ;). Get out in your garden, dammit!

Honey, just make me a lovely Lisa cocktail wienie. Anything from my special friend, I will love. I miss you so much. I think you need to come visit. Get away from the mulch, the humidity, the bugs etc. Just come out and spend a long gal pal weekend. Do you know how many times we could hit the Cheesecake Factory? Or we could meet in Reno and visit our respective kids!! And there will be NO visits to Curves or anything that resembles exercise. We are eating and boozing our way thru your weekend.

I'll take a firemans wiener too! You can keep the fire wiener for someone else. And yes folks, she is just as funny in person but she never like to play during nap time. She slept! What a weird thing to do. Hows that for funny..............
