Many moons ago…
…those three little crack pots on the right (Daney boy, cousin Tim and the Bald kid) were truly, madly deeply in love with Cub Scouts and…Pony Beads.
Every time I turned around, someone had left another Pony Bead Gekko in some unsuspected place as a surprise gift from the little boy heart. Seriously, I could have made a skirt—a very heavy, beaded gecko skirt, but you get my point.
Well, the other day, while the Bald Kid and I were cleaning closets and sorting boxes we came across the coveted “Box O Beads.”
I said, “Hey. You should make me a Pony Bead Gecko–for old time’s sake.”
He said, “I don’t think so.”
So I snagged those beads and messed with them for a while. They were surprisingly fun to play with.
Look what happened…
I call it the “Indian Corn Pony Bead Thing.” I was going to put a pin on the back and wear it around but I was afraid people would ask me if I was supporting some kind of “save the corn” cause. Plus it made me feel old…er. So I’ve decided to put a cord on it and hang it from my car mirror.
It’s cute. It’s easy to make. It’s Thanksgiving-y.
And just think…if I get really good at these–I can make you a skirt!
