Thinking outside the box….
I tried to come up with a great story, to go along with these pictures, but I think the pictures are worth a 1000 words.
Thank you, Funtowitz family, for bringing your turtle Maxine, along with your pups, to camp!
A big thank you to my sweet mother for only giving me the “you’re crazy” look and swearing twice when I asked her to sew a tutu for Maxine. My sweet mom hates to sew, but she took needle to net and created a beautiful double-ruffled tutu for Maxine the turtle.
Thank you! Thank you to our friend and helper Vickie, who was our turtle whisperer. She helped dress Maxine, coaxed her out of her shell, and had her smiling and practically pirouetting as I snapped her picture.
We had a flower for Maxine’s head (my sweet mother thought a tierra was over the top) but decided her head did not need to be adorned (and the darn thing kept falling off–Elmer’s glue was not an option…)
Maxine makes a beautiful ballerina! Don’t you agree?
Would you like an autographed pictures of Maxine? Just let her know you would like one by leaving a comment and I will contact you for a mailing address and send one speedy quick!
