A GIVE AWAY and Rainy Day Productions!!

    Before I get to talking about my rainy day Wuglyees productions, I'd like to announce that today begins a GIVE AWAY for the U.S. and Canadian readers of this blog. (I'll be doing another give away soon that will include everyone!) CSN Stores, with over 200 online stores where you can find everything from nesting tables to cookware and who knows what all else, felt that you guys might be interested in a selection of their home decor, cookware or something else!!You'll receive a gift card for $55 that is good on any product on any site!
     To enter all you have to do is leave a comment ON THIS BLOG below between right now and Monday October 4th, along with your email address. The winner will be randomly picked from the box and announced on Tuesday, October 5th! {For extra entries, just visit my Wuglyees Shop and leave a comment about one of the items on my blog below so I can see it; Post the GIVE AWAY on your Facebook page, etc...and make me aware of how to find and see it;  or tweet me on Twitter about an item in my shop using the words GIVE AWAY.} Each person can have up to 5 entries...Okay, let's have fun people...and get some free stuff!! :-)
    Now, On to my rainy day productions! And yes....they include "Pistachio"!! The rain cleared up for a 'hot second' yesterday, so that these photos could be taken. They're not the best, but here goes....the Forest Moss and Pistachio Scarf
     If you click on the link you can see a couple of other shots of it. I don't know if it was the weather or what, but I couldn't get a crisp look at it through the lens. It looks much better in person, in my opinion. Okay...so I may be a bit biased! LOL
    This isn't the only scarf I did though! If you look at this one you will notice that the outside edge on both sides is of the thicker, darker, forest moss colored yarn. Well, I decided to do the same yarns, but with the pistachio on the outter edges. This is what that came out to look like....
    It's a subtle difference, but a difference none the less! Can you tell the difference?! Do you have a preference?!....Well, I didn't stop there! What do you want......It's been raining......A LOT!!! LOL ....So, I made this 'un-named as of yet' creation...
    This one is Pistachio and Razzle Dazzle and white. You can see it a little closer here...
    Are you tired of Pistachio yet?!! I wasn't!!! ^_^ I'm now working on this one!
   It's a combination of rows of pistachio and rows of celery! Yep! Again with the celery!! LOL The celery looks much better next to the lighter pistachio, rather than being next to the darker moss color, like in the other scarf I made last week. I think so anyway!...I'm almost done with this one too. Probably will be by the end of this rainy day.
   Then what?!! Probably an 'Ugly Wuglyee' with all of the leftover celery, moss, and pistachio. Then date night....and definitely more rain!!! :-) Have a good weekend everyone, and don't forget to enter the GIVE AWAY!!

GREEN

Beans, asparagus,cabbage and frogs,
cucumbers, shamrocks, and moss on old logs.

Leaves, trees, and tangy mint jam,
Dr. Seuss stories of green eggs and ham.

Grasshoppers, apples, and new lawn-cut grass,
tropical waters and thick bottled glass.

 Pistachio, collards, and yes...Money too!
And don't forget envy. It's green when you stew!

Ecologically aware, reusably clean,
Or you don't know anything. They both are called "green".

A color, a feeling, a veggie, all fun!
And also my favorite color is one!
