Creative...Things!!

       Besides good sleeping, good eating...I got a gift of a box of Russell Stovers Chocolates yesterday!! :-)..., good watching of T.V. (I watched repeat episodes of 'Storage Wars' and stayed away from the news!), and a good time spent helping my girlfriend prepare a 5 minute Bible talk/performance that she has to perform this Thursday, my Tuesday was pretty uneventful...like I like it!! ^_^
      Today is NOT gonna be uneventful! We've got rain coming today, and snow and ice coming tomorrow! So I've got to get some crocheting done before my fingers get that gnarly mangled feel and I can't make my crochet hook do what I want it to do! LOL Who knows...maybe the weather will be good to me this time and just bother OTHER people!....Yeah, I know. Wishful thinking!
       You don't know how thankful I am that my eyes will still be working though!! :-) I love looking around and finding out what the creative people of Etsy are doing right now!...Do you wanna see what I'm loving right now?!....What?!...Your eyes are working too, right?! ^_^
       The raccoon figurine in the header photo was the first thing that caught my eye! Soooo cute!! :-) But as I continued to look around, my eyes had a feast..of things for my ears!!...
    
         Things for my refrigerator door...
        Things for my bedroom...

      Things for my neck...

       Things for my dog...Okay, not for "my" dog. I don't have one! LOL But I know someone who would love it!! :-) ...
      Things for holding my jewelry...

        Things for putting away all of my OTHER jewelry!....Shhhh! Hubby may, or may not, know that I still have more jewelry than he's aware of, and that I need somewhere inconspicuous to put it! LOL...

      Things to put on my feet....I don't really need to explain this one, do I ladies?! :-) ...

      Things to decorate my wall...and just to look at....

      And things for my hubby too! For his 'Man Cave'...
       *hanging my head*....Okay...confession...that sign was for me too! "I love you Dallas Cowboys!!!!!" ^_^ *blowing kisses to the team*...Hubby's team is the Rams. This shop didn't have a sign for them. 
           But there was something else for him!...
       And look at that! It's just big enough to hold all the money he'll need to carry, in order to get all the 'things' I've been spending my time looking at!! LOL
      I guess I better get back to work on my crocheting, so I can 'bring on some bacon' too! I mean...I still have to pay for my living! LOL Although it doesn't cost anything to look! ^_^
      Do something fun with your eyes and have a good day everybody! :-)

Eyes


We take our eyes for granted
until some 'boo boo' mars our view.
Then we find ourselves short-sighted
with less things that we can do.

The thought of losing sight,
and seeing life just like before,
is scary, and can shake our confidence
right to the core.

To make our eyes feel better
we would do most anything.
Some eye salve or a hot pack,
even ointments that will sting.

To, every day, appreciate
the eyes that help us see
(and keeping those sharp objects
out of their proximity),

That's what we should be doing,
give those 'Peepers' some respect!
Especially since they get it
when we're sticking out our neck.

  12. CinLynn, Yes, Bead, they're definitely what you would call 'eye candy'! ^_^ And the raccoons got me too!...and the shoes!...It was rainy all day. I'm nervous about what kind of weather we're gonna have tomorrow. It's a wait and see game as to whether the weather man is right or not...By the way, I finished the black, yellow and gray scarf...and started some matching wrist warmers! :-)

  15. So many creative people on Etsy! It is especially kind of you to feature their beautiful work. I'm partial to the adorable raccoon figurines, laser cut magnets and trinket dish. All are wonderful though. My two pups love the dog bowl. Be careful in the snow and ice.

I'm not going out in it! ^_^ Unfortunately hubby has to though. I hope you have good weather...and a good day! :-)

  17. That certainly was a feast for the eyes :) That dressing table looks wonderful & I'm glad you found something for the man-cave! Our men certainly need one of those to keep them happy (and out of our hair for a little while)
    I hope that your hands don't suffer too much from the cold today.

  18. Jo-anne, Ha! Ha! You have me giggling about the 'Man Cave' comment. ^_^ I only wish I could have found a sign with my hubby's team on it!...And I'm afraid the joints are getting a work-out with this weather right now, but...so are my eyes and brain cells, so...even!! LOL
