Look how cool this Lacy Hand Crochet with Vintage Bird Charm is!! (In the header photo) I saw it in the Etsy shop of saltcitydesign when I was on one of my
And just like a bag of potato chips, I could not stop at just one! I just had to look around and see what some of my other fellow crochet necklace creators were up to!...And once I did that, I just had to share it with somebody...Hello SOMEBODY!!! You all are my 'somebody' today! :-) So, Lookie! Lookie!
It's a WOWer! It's called the Bordeaux Crochet Necklace. And just like it says in her description, it looks so flattering on the neck, doesn't it?! It's from Nanushika's shop. I love how the leaves kinda rain down. So pretty. But also a LOT of work! I know! Somebody's got more nimble fingers...and brain...than me! ^_^
I really love this Anthropologie Inspired Green Crochet Necklace too:
I mean, I can do a crochet chain, tie a knot, and make a flower, right?! But this beauty came from someone not only talented with her fingers, but with her mind too! It's such a great necklace design! And so well executed!...Why didn't I think of that?!...I didn't because PinkPoppiesStudio thought of it, that's why!! :-]
Speaking of design, execution, and flowers, look at this Gold Silk Crochet Bib Necklace by MariesFiber! It has a single ruffle layer, a brooch flower, AND gold color pearls!!
WOW! Clearly, being a jewelry crocheter is putting me in good company! :-) It's not making me do necklaces like this...frankly, because I think I need to get more confidence about my work...but it's putting me in good company! Maybe if I could do things like this I could refer to myself as a crochet jewelry DESIGNER...Which, clearly, she is!...Yeah, I like that! :-)
But, do I want to work as hard as nevousinstallezpas did on this Silk Crocheted Necklace?!!
Each one of the balls is another project all it's own...and then you have to put them together and make them look beautiful!...No! I don't think I want to work this hard at this time! LOL I'll leave this beautiful job up to them!!...But hmmmmmm...I sure wouldn't mind having my necklaces bring as much cash in the house as this one! Deserved too!
Oh Well, I'll stick with my Wuglyees and let these great crochet designers have their spotlight. Hey! I know how to stay in my lane! LOL This is my lane...my Purple Peach Wuglyee Button Flower Necklace.
And apparently being in my own lane is not that bad...because I just found out this morning that it's SOLD!!! :-) How cool is that?! There's room on the highway for all of us!!
And another one, my Pink and Green Victorian Inspired Crochet Necklace,
...made CinLynnBoutique's In The Pink treasury!
There's so many cute pink things in this treasury. I was hearting to my heart's content! ^_^
And while it's not jewelry, my Mountain Streams Blue and Black Scarf for Men ...
...made another treasury! It's entitled Taste of St. Louis.
Thank you MaryCNasser!!
Now....what happened with my computer this time??!!....ME!! That's what happened! LOL I was in the middle of getting all of my pictures together this morning at 4:45 a.m. when I got a pop-up saying my computer could be unprotected, and that I needed to upgrade something or the other. Needless to say, considering the fact that I'm just now getting my computer back to Comfortable after the last fiasco, I was SCARED!!
So I hit the button to upgrade, and then a shield popped up with a red X in it, and it said something about having 2 problems on my computer!! I shut the computer down right away!!! Then I turned it back on to see if I diverted the "Intruder"! The same thing popped back up again! YIKES!! So, I shut it down again, despite the fact that the computer was talking to me...like it does all the time THANKFULLY!...saying DON'T SHUT OFF YOUR COMPUTER!!...But it was too late. I was OUT OF THERE!...WHEW!!
Then I waited until it was a decent hour to call someone on the phone...my techie girlfriend, of course! :-) As soon as she got the kids off to school she came running to help me out!...And found out that I had panicked and dismantled my own security system!!! YIKES!!!...One of these days I'm going to figure out what I'm doing and....WATCH OUT viruses!!! ^_^
She fixed everything, got me protected again...easy peasy! I love her for a lot of reasons, but being able to call her EARLY in the morning to help me not dismantle my own self is clearly somewhere at the top of the list!!! ^_^ For her I HAVE to repeat this poem!!
Who is a Friend?
Dependable and loving,
all your jokes make perfect sense;
To keep you happy and unharmed,
they'd gladly spare no small expense.
They know your moods,
Can take the heat.
They know the things
you like to eat.
Will tell you things
that lift your fear,
and even the things
you don't want to hear.
They'll quickly point out
your panicky smile;
and pull up your slip
that's been hanging a mile.
They'll be your cheerleader-
Pom Poms in the air!
And when others are gone,
they will always be there.
Laughter and glee,
sobs and deep pain,
are shared by this friend,
in the sun or the rain.
Your accomplishments cause
only joy to their heart;
When they see your success,
it's as if they're a part.
And even though they know
the very worst that you do,
they map your intentions-
and they still love you.
So who is this friend?
It's your mother, your wife,
your neighbor, your kid,
someone who's sharing your life.
They may be close, and related,
or live very far;
but this friend is your friend
and they know who you are.
Your secrets are safe,
your feelings secure,
their shoulder is ready,
and their motives are pure.
