A Table Centerpiece Idea!

I have a new centerpiece idea.
I like to call it-
Decor a la socks


I know- you need to see it a little clearer to understand the full detail of the piece...
to truly understand how to make one of your own. 


I thought so.
To make one of your own,
simply take six human beings living in cold country,
who go out in snow and mud which sometimes makes it way through shoes. 
Make sure these people also 
participate in an active lifestyle including skiing, wrestling, and working out in order to multiply the amount of socks necessary for daily life.

When doing the laundry,
simply take said socks from the clean clothes and toss them into a
large fruit bowl.
Place bowl at center of your table and enjoy the morning ritual of watching family members try to locate socks for their day.

What was that?
You say, you think I am the next Martha Stewart in the making?
Oh, you are too kind.

You know that would be funny...
if it weren't so true at my house...
What I hate is when there are sooooo
many white socks. Different colored socks are easier to match up, especially when you are in a hurry.
Thanks for the decorating idea. ;-)
Love ya,
Mommy 2
P.S. Are you getting snowed on like we are today...
its not spring yet. ha,ha,

too funny! my sis-in-law uses an antique bottle dryer... it's a little deadly if you run into it, but hangs lots of mittens, gloves and socks!

Haha...we have 7 people at our house too, and sorting them is always a pain! Cute idea :)

You brought a huge smile to my face. I have one of these on my dressers. Now I know I'm in fashion.

Delighted to meet you today. I hope you don't mind if I splash around a bit to get to know you.

And how exactly do you get away with such a tiny centerpiece with a house full of boys?? My Centerpiece would be bigger than the table!!
