Laverne and Shirley...

Remember the episode of Laverne and Shirley (L&S to us aficionados) where they won a contest where they had to fill up their carts with as many groceries as they could?  Hijinks and hilarity ensued (hey it was Laverne and Shirley-COMIC GENIOUS!) and they ended up sliding over the finish line with like a string of hotdogs and one ham.  Oh, it was sooooo funny.  Sometimes when I'm bored I think of my strategy if I ever win one of those type of contests.  That's just how my mind works. 

Well, I bet you thought I wasn't going to make it over the finish line with PINCUSHION NUMBER FOUR, now did you?  Well I did.  Ha!  Here it is...

Just a simple emery berry that is also stuffed with lavender.  I think the little berry pins are so darling.  They look just like wild strawberries dipped in sugar.  Don't eat them though, the "sugar" is actually crushed glass.  Not good for the digestive system.  No, no, not at all.

DISCLAIMER:  No hijinks ensued in the making of this pincushion.

Smiles from the farm,


  1. Oh another cutie for sure. I remember LaVerne and Shirley, and Squiggy and Lenny.....love it and can't wait for tomorrow, Char

  2. I named my first two ewes Laverne and Shirley. And when the first one had twin ram lambs, I named them Lenny and Squiggy.
