Thumbs Up Thursday

I am so tickled at how the EggShell puggies turned out.  So THUMBS UP for seeing the project through.
Here are more pics of the EggShell puggies coming together:
 Chipping off any egg shell hanging over the edge.
Got the Pug Face painted and glued together.  Perfect.  Looking good already. 

Painted with a small brush so I could get into all them nooks and crannies.

While the paint is wet.  I wipe it off.

 Whoops - almost forgot to paint the back.
Pug faces.  Yippee!

Body and Pug Face are joined together.

Oh so cute.

Modge Podge.
I'm ready to reveal the finished EggShell Pug ornament tomorrow for:
In the meantime I hope you enjoy this little story that made me smile.  Enjoy:

The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and trauma complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71. Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and Captain ... Crunch. The grave site was piled high with flours.
 Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded. Born and bread in Minnesota , Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He was not considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes. Despite being a little flaky at times, he still was a crusty old man and was considered a positive roll model for millions.
 Doughboy is survived by his wife, Play Dough, and three children: John Dough, Jane Dough and Dosey Dough, plus they had one in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart. The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.
 If this made you smile, please rise to the occasion and take time to
 pass it on and, share that smile with someone else that may be having a crumby day and kneads a lift
