If I Had The Money......

       Sometimes I see things when I'm roaming around on Facebook, Twitter or Etsy that make me say: "Oooooo! If I had the money, that would be mine right now!"...And since I'm sitting here again today...at 5:27 a.m....watching another exciting tennis match...the other half of the men's semi-finals...between Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic...and I can't concentrate on my typing enough to give you any focused conversation, I thought I'd show you some of the things that I've been 'hearting' lately. Things that, if I had the money, I'd be buying for somebody right now!
      The first thing would definitely be that gorgeous little necklace in my header photo! I don't know what a penny farthing actually is...I thought it was money (which is why I'm not sure why the necklace is considered a penny farthing O_0 Could it be made out of a coin or something?!)...but I don't have to know what it is. I have eyes! I can see that pretty bike with the flowers in it's spokes, and that would be all I'd need to shell out my farthing...if I had one...or some!..I think that's money, right?!! ^_^
     SPOILER ALERT:......Djokovic won the first set...6/3...and Murray just won the 2nd set...6/3! So while I'm showing you the other 'would be' purchases of mine, I'll be intensely watching this match! Murray has never beaten Djokovic in a semi-final, so he's trying to do the almost impossible!...But he has the great tennis player, Ivan Lendl, in his corner this year! :-) And Lendl's influence on Murray's thinking process seems to already be working! Murray doesn't seem as intimidated by Djokovic this time!
      Okay...I'm gonna stop talking , and start showing you now! ^_^ ...
        I'd hang this photo in my kitchen. Somewhere near the table where breakfast is eaten. It would make all future breakfasts an eye-pleasing experience! :-)

      My morning coffee would go in these!....Yes! I would be having me some piping hot coffee!! LOL

       I'd be wearing these 'bad boys' on my feet, under the breakfast table! :-] ...Or these, with the rose brooches on them! (also from her shop)...

       After breakfast I'd do a little crocheting. And I'd love to make some of my flowers in these colors!...
      
*** GAME UPDATE: Murray is up 2 to 1 in the 3rd set. He just broke Djokovic's serve!!! ***

      I'd buy this for my girlfriend's little boy. The less bow tying you have to do when you're a mom...the better! ^_^ {By the way, I didn't know it until I looked to see where the bow tie came from, but it's from CastAwayCollection , the same shop that I shared the granny square pillow cover from the other day! :-) She, Tracy Roul, did a post about my blog post, on her site HERE! :-) So nice!}

        I'd buy this for my 'baby boy' hubby! ^_^ I could just see this in his garden in the Spring!....which could be next week according to the kind of weather we're having lately! O_0

         I'd buy these to give to one of my girlfriends...and then I'd probably keep them for myself! LOL

       I'd buy this for my spur-of-the-moment gift stash! :-) Do you have these?! A few gifts on hand for when something unexpected comes along that you just need to give a gift for?!...I think it's great because any traveler or game player could appreciate it.

       I have just the perfect spot for this!...If I had the money to buy it, that is! :-)

      And lastly, if I had the money, I would buy these...JUST BECAUSE!!! ^_^ Just because they're pretty! And just because they have butterflies and music notes all over them! :-)

*** GAME UPDATE: It's 6/5 in the 3rd set now. Murray is serving to go to a tie-break. It's just been fabulous tennis!!! ***

     Hmmph!....Looking back up the post....I see I actually did find some things to talk about! ^_^ But I'm done now!....Bye! Have a good day everybody! :-)

  I Like To Talk

I like to talk;
I like to gab;
I like a girlfriend
free confab!

I like to chat;
I like to speak;
I find that words
are what I seek.

I like the chatter
of a crowd;
Not in a whisper,
but out loud.

But, please no talking
while you chew.
{Speaking does 
have manners too!}

I like the noise
that utterance does.
The constant
conversation buzz.

Maybe I need a
word-free diet;
No! I could not
withstand the quiet!

So, I will talk;
Oh yes! I'll dabble
in a constant
lingo babble.

  1. It always amazes me when you do these posts highlighting some finds on etsy - how amazingly creative we can all be. No matter what we all decide to focus on, it's possible for each of us to find our own way of expressing creatively and make our mark.

    And I love your poem! I'm one who wakes up ready to chat. Daniel doesn't. So I talk to the dog and cat... :-)

    Enjoy your tennis matches!!! Hugs, Silke

    1. Hi Silke!...Actually, it's not hard to find things to feature! As you said, there are some amazingly creative people on Etsy! I could do these posts every single day if I wanted to!...And thanks for the nice words about the poem too. It's tough being 'chatty' when there's no one to chat with, isn't it?! ^_^ I KNOW!!!,,,By the way, the match is now tied up again! They both have 2 sets a piece! Only one more set to go! *A nail-biter!!!* :-]

  4. You did find some awesome "gifts"! I say "gifts," because I wonder how many you would actually be able to give and how many you would end up keeping! LOL If you're like me, you'd have trouble parting with any of them! Great selections!!
    I'm glad the tennis has been so good for you too. Sounds like you're having a great time with it for sure.

    Love the poem!

    Hi! This is thepokeyrose, and I want to thank you for highlighting my pears!

    And I can solve the "penny farthing" question for you! Those are the names of two British coins, one being very small compared to the other. So that style of bicycle in real life is called a penny farthing in reference to the size of the wheels! Interesting bit of trivia!

    Thanks again!

  10. Evening lots of lovely things to look at here today ;-) A penny farthing was a British bike it had one large wheel at the back and a smaller one at the front. It was an odd looking thing really but if you look back in history even women used to ride them in victorian times with their long skirts on. Have a lovely weekend, dee x

  15. Good afternoon! I finally had some time to catch up reading my favorite blogs. Last week we traveled to Texas and I had so much work after being only gone for 2 days. Then Beli is getting over a cold, not much sleep and our house is a mess but here I am catching up on my reading!LOl.
    Hubby was giving me the update on the Australian open, Nadal against Djokovic, that kid is something else, my in-laws were also watching and of course they are so proud I think he is from Serbia?) which is across the border from Croatia.

    have a wonderful rest of your Sunday.

    1. Hi Elisa!...What a complement, to say that this is one of your favorite blogs! :-) That's nice!...I noticed that you've been doing a bit of traveling lately. And it appears that Beli has been enjoying some of the little trips too! :-) Sorry she had a cold though. :-( ...So, your hubby is a tennis fan too?! :-) And yes, Djokovic is from Serbia. He's a fabulous tennis player. So is Nadal, for that matter. That was the best match ever!!! I look forward to many more battles between them on the court. :-) ...Okay, have a good week this week. Back to the daily grind, right?! :-)
