Monday Musings About The Fall, Crochet, Parks, Owls And Gardens

        It's Monday...whether you want it to be or not! ^_^ I hope you all had a good weekend. I did. Not because there was anything special going on...but because there wasn't anything special going on!! You know....no drama!....Just peaceful....quiet.....nice! :-) Except for the humidity we're having right now...(which is suppose to break by Wednesday...YAY!)...it's like the perfect Fall/Autumn season.
       And I guess I'm not the only one feeling that way because I woke up to the nice notices of being in two new treasuries. One having to do with the Fall. The other having to do with a special kind of garden. 
        ...in her Fall-inspired treasury entitled Signs of Fall...
     She also included a scarf from her own shop in there too! Her Lots of Color Crochet Scarf...
          I love the colors she chooses for the items in her personal shop...And I also like the colors of a couple of the things she chose for this particular treasury...like this 'Encinitas Cotton photo print' by rachelheath...
        Very pretty, right!..."Thanks Natalie!" :-)
     There was also another treasury waiting for me this morning...with a whole different look and theme. This one was curated by happybabyshoes! It's entitled My Owl Garden...
        There's blues and yellows and greens in this one. Happy colors for a Monday, don't you think?! :-) And who doesn't like an owl?! Especially one as cutely made as this Oliver Owl Throw Pillow from RobinsNestBoutique!
     And if you're not in the mood for a pillow, how about a Ceramic Owl Yarn Bowl that, in the front, says "Create", and on the inside, says "Imagination will take you everywhere"?! 
       It was made by claylicious...Cool, right?! :-]
       I also liked this pretty-colored Ceramic Pendant by lillysnightgarden...
       ...This Miniature House Village by thelittlereddoor...
       ...and also this Flowers Photograph by Lori411.
       Oh Yeah! Don't let me forget the Birds On A Wire Turquoise Beaded Blue and Green Crochet Flower Dangle Necklace of mine from my Wuglyees shop! :-)
        "Thank you happybabyshoes!!" :-)
      So those are my musings about Monday...except for a couple of other little things. If you noticed in my blog title I mentioned Fall. Talked about....I mentioned Crochet. Talked about with my crochet items that were featured in these two treasuries.
       I mentioned Owls and Gardens. Talked about...But I also mentioned parks! I left this subject for last because I think this subject will take you away from this blog and over to Vicki's blog (2 Bags Full...). She posted the first installment of her and her hubby's National Parks Adventure trips. Oh! Such beautiful photos of Zion National Park in Utah! You have to see them yourself. Click HERE!
       If you can't stand to tear yourself away from this blog...^_^...I'll share a couple of her photos...
      "Hello!!!.....Anybody still here?!" O_O...LOL Well, just in case you are, I'll regale you with a poetic turn of the phrase as a thank you...And say Have a good Monday Everybody!! :-)

For all the Mondays

For all the Mondays that come around,
and all the Fall leaves gently falling down;
For all the wet soil, caked and brown,
and all the worms it must have drowned;

For all the honking, and chatty sound
from all the folks scurrying round the town;
For aching feet and hearts that pound;
and lists and nerves to be unwound;

For bags and keys that hit the ground,
when well-tired bodies fall in a mound;
For deals and prices that do astound,
and all well worth it, pond for pound;

For all the Mondays that come around,
and all the weekends gone with a frown;
For adjectives needed, not just a noun,
Much thanks to Mondays that come around.

    I must tell you Wugs, I never need to check the weather anymore, I just check in on your blog and figure out what I'll be wearing for the day.

Every place has something!!...I so appreciate your comment today about the treasuries and the blog post. Thank you! :-)

  24. Craftgal, Thanks Natalie! It was my pleasure. You chose such nice items...and such pretty colors! I was honored to have my crochet necklace in there. :-]...An I'm assuming you're getting some of the humidity too then, huh?! ^_^ But it still hasn't changed my mind about the Fall! Yeah, bring on the crocheting, and the apple cider!! :-))
