Bug Off!

9:20:00 PM

Pretty, practical and solves my problem!

When we're having dinner outside,  
or when I'm Jim's cooking and dinner is waiting to be served...
Those darn pesky flies are buzzing around because the kids and the dogs are in and out all summer and the door is never closed...

This is a great idea!

It looks like a cute little lace umbrella...

but when you pull the ball at the top...

it pops open into a tent...

Quick and easy!
...with pretty little lace around the bottom.

The perfect solution for me for when I'm Jim's cooking dinner and for the dinner table. 
They serve the purpose and they look so pretty.


I've seen these before in many shapes and styles...
but these little cuties are at CVS right now for $1.00.

They come in several colors but for me...
white is the winner!
(Jim likes them too)

  8. Seriously?! I just made some of these for a party I was having and they were a PAIN to make. But it looks like these may be just to cover a plate. I needed them to cover a big tray...OK. I feel better. I didn't completely waste my time (although I am heading to CVS to get some of your covers TODAY. Lisa~

  9. Awesome idea. I don't think I have a CVS in my area...but i seen these at Dollar General for $1.50 each. A little more pricey. But I think I will pick one up to try.
