I'm not the only one who loves balls!

I'll use any excuse to be a little...errrr.....gross!  Okay, there's still a part of me that snickers a little when someone says chicken breast.  I admit it!

Okay, so moving on now....

One of my friends from high school, Kathleen, has a great little blog called Widdlebugs

Last week she went a wittle cwazy (*I love Elmer Fudd, you?) making not only the ratty jute balls I made a few weeks ago, but she expanded the ball selection and I wanted to share them with you because they are so cool.....cool balls (*gutter talkin*)

Her rendition of "ratty jute balls"...
 
This is a tennis ball wrapped in raffia!  How clever is that?!

Another tennis ball wrapped in white rope!

Okay, so Kathleen, I have to tell you.... I really love your balls
Happy Tuesday everyone....

Cute balls...hehehe. Couldn't avoid that one.

Hubby and I saw the ceramic balls at Sam Moon last weekend. Too expensive and not as cute.

Ba-hahahahahhaha! Normally I would say "I love your balls" but I think you already beat me to the punch with your post. Thanks, I needed a good laugh and when all else fails, "fart" always gives me a much needed giggle!

Seriously though, nicely done!

Cute, that's pretty clever!

There are alot of good jokes with this topic, but I'll behave! My favorite balls are the ones I won from you. I've made some smaller ones from jute. I made one out of rafia, too. If you see me posting about one I made from dental floss, you'll know I ran out of jute and was desperate!

I love these balls! I saw some cute leather looking balls at my Family Dollar Store! They would look so cool in a black deco bowl!

I smile when I stop by here! :)

You are funny!

I think I am the only one that hasn't jumped on the twine ball wagon. I love all the ideas out there though.

Great job, Kendall! I suppose you could say you're on the ball? GROAN. I know, I know.

These are so great looking! They'd add such interest to almost anything!
