Do you recognize this?!...If not, it may be because the key rings and the "made with love" tag are throwing you off...Yes, it's another re-fashioned keychain. :-) I'm so clever, aren't I?!....Ha! Ha!...Not really. You knew I was gonna be back here today showing off these ugly 'babies', didn't you?!! ^_^ ...Anyway, before I tell you the other exciting news that's going on, let me show you my latest two...yes, two!...keychains!
I think this crochet edging gives the flowers a completely different look. In fact, the thread colors almost seem to change when you put another color around the flower!...
They're not gonna be keychains for just 'anybody', but hopefully 'somebody' will be willing to shell out a mere $8.00 for one of them!...Even if they weren't mine...I WOULD! :-) But of course, I love color!...
I already listed the purple one in the shop HERE. These two will probably go in today...
I said 'two' right?!...Here's the other one I did yesterday...
I edged this one in black, and put a 'love' heart on it...
Hubby doesn't like the button on this one. But I kinda think it has character...What do you think?!
Hey! All the buttons in the world can't be smooth, beige shirt buttons! LOL...
Some buttons have to accompany keychains to the party....and be prepared to drive home!! Ha! Ha!
This keychain is definitely the 'designated driver'! ^_^ In fact, it almost looks like a crochet sports car. Something like Mario Andretti's wife would drive!...
Okay....maybe that's stretching it a bit.....a bit! ^_^ I'm just talking my usual foolishness. But I must admit, I'm loving the new keychains!! I may end up giving the new keychais away! LOL...but I still love them!!! :-))
Speaking of giving something away....guess what?! Today is the day for the Giveaway drawing!...And guess what else?!......NOT ONE PERSON ENTERED!!! Ha! Ha!...So there isn't a winner today. Uhhhhh....are you trying to tell me something?! ^_^
Recently I had an afghan blanket as the giveaway. The winner never claimed it!...Now, my poor little ugly brooch is sitting there, all by itself, wondering why nobody loves it! LOL...Maybe it's time to retire the monthly Giveaway, huh?!...I'm thinking on it...In the meantime, I'm gonna leave the brooch until the 15th of May. If I still don't get much interest, I'll take that to mean that it's time to retire the bi-monthly giveaway, and I'll start doing the giveaway like everyone else does, when the mood hits me!...If you have any thoughts on this, let me know.
On to other news!...There's actual growth...flowers...in the backyard!!! :-)
Hubby told me what the name of the bush was...but I don't remember. And he's asleep again, so it's....a flower bush! ^_^
I don't know if you can tell, but the buds aren't that hearty. The cold snap we had overnight the other day 'slapped them hard across the face'! So, they're a little bit leery of coming out too boldly right now. I can tell. I know flowers like that! LOL
They still look pretty good though, right?! :-)
In other exciting news!...somebody in Blogland is engaged!! :-)
Congratulations, Dee, of dee dee's vintage retro delights!! :-) How exciting!!! I may have to make you a keychain or something! LOL
Okay, a little song for YOU Dee...and a poem too!...Have a good day! :-)
Now that he's gotten on his knee
and asked, while his emotions raged,
if you would be his loving wife,
and you said yes, and are engaged,
you'll be engaged in other things,
like, so exciting, wedding plans.
Engaged in showing off your ring,
and hunting for your wedding bands.
You'll be engaged in choosing food,
bridesmaids, new shoes, and all the rest.
Matching 'old' and 'new' together,
searching for a wedding dress.
You'll be engaged in conversation,
meeting all your grooms relations.
Engaged in giddy story-telling,
without too much animation.
No matter who will be invited,
or who else will be there to share in it,
just take in all this time will offer,
and enjoy every single minute!
