Before I continue with today's post, let me first tell all of you who have been concerned about our safety, with hurricane Earl heading our way, that it's looking better and better for us here in the Holyoke Massachusetts area every time I see a weather update. It appears that Earl is toggling more and more Easterly all the time. Good for us, but maybe not good for those further up the coast from us. Only time will tell.
We ARE due to get our fair share of wind and rain, but nothing like it looked like we would get when they were talking about the storm earlier in the week! The outer banks of North Carolina, around the Cape Hatteras area, seems to be getting the brunt of it right now. I'm thinking good thoughts for everyone in that area.
I'm trying to get my mind wrapped around the fact that hurricanes, the leaves changing on the trees, and cooler weather finally starting, means Fall is upon us. Time to change the food menu from cold salads, grilled hot dogs and hamburgers, to soups and more substantial dishes. Something like this?!
Have you ever had stuffed peppers made with ground turkey?! Trust me, it's delicious!!
Every single, savory, flavorful, bite!!! YUM! And it's even better when you don't have to cook it, but a friend gives you enough for 2 meals! Yep! These pictures are actually the leftovers of the meal that was cooked for us! There were red and green stuffed peppers. Hubby and I devoured the 'green' ones already! *Teehee* Our friend is a very good cook!!!
It's not only food that's showing the change of the seasons though. If you look around, in store windows and even on the web, you'll see the change in the colors that are being focused on, from clothing to crafts. That being said, I figured I'd better do some tweaking to my Wuglyees (on Etsy) shop. I'm not focusing on NEW right now though. Yes, I do have some new things made, but I'm not putting them in the shop right now. I may be putting them in a new spot soon! I'll tell you more about that on a future post.
But what I am doing is putting my best foot forward as to how my shop looks! These crochet necklaces, with better photos, are going to be my focal items...My "Daisy Give Me Your Answer True Necklace"...
..."Summer Green Hanging Heart Necklace" (saying bye bye to that season!)...
...and lastly, my "Honey Fly to the Nugget Flower Crochet Necklace".
Does it look like Fall?! I hope so. Please let me know what you think!
Dress And Feel Better
When I am feeling bad,
and I am about to drop a tear,
I make myself feel better
putting pearls upon my ears.
When your hair just won't act right,
and you're feeling kinda fat,
put some perfume on your wrist,
and wear a fancy, frilly hat.
There's nothing better than some frill,
and high heels down off the shelf
to make you stand a little straighter,
and feel good about yourself.
Wear some bold and brighter colors,
and some jewelry everywhere,
and you'll look so good to others
that you'll feel like what you wear!
Change your mood-and sport some flare!
