It's that time of year

The nights are getting a little colder and it's time to start thinking about pulling out the warmer clothes. I think I'm ready with this comfortable old pair of long johns.

 These long johns have been in my family for years and passed down through the generations keeping us all nice and toasty through those long winters. I just happened to find a picture that my grandma took of hers.

OK so I made that all up. I saw a picture of these on Pinterest and thought they were really cute. As simple as this project was to put together it took me forever because I'm such a procrastinator. These are made from 2 tube socks.

Ann! You are too funny!! It's not getting that cold here....it is still warm enough that here it is almost 3am and the A/C is running!

ROFL, I was gonna say it must have been a REALLY short relative lol.

I thought they looked a little small for you. I actually thought they were for Duke.

We have some of those too hanging in the laundry room from when I enjoyed the country style of decorating. It's not my style anymore but I still think they're cute so hence the reason they are in the laundry room instead of family room! Loved your story! :)

Adorable too. I had to go back and look again after you said that it was made out of two tube socks. And it was too.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

And then again, I can't imagine doing all that just for the helluva of it...

Dee said...

LOL I fell for it... the clothes pins are great. I would not have guessed they were made of tube socks...very clever.

Reeni Pisano said...

Those are ADORABLE! I was believing your story. . . maybe Duke can fit in them?

Lin said...

Oh, that's adorable! I didn't realize it was tube socks until you told me!

I hope you are gonna make some of those.

The 'long john's' look great Ann. Would be a nice little project to do with the kids to make dolls clothes. Nights are getting longer and colder here too. I'm always ready for the winter to arrive after a long busy summer...but it always seems to last too long.. :-(

Ann Oon said...

Sharkbytes said...

Very cute idea! I'm going to send a friend over to look. She likes to do that kind of stuff.
