How About This For A "Gift"?!!


       You ever get a gift that you hadn't requested from anyone, and that you weren't sure you would have ever wanted, and that you know you would never have bought for yourself....but after you got it you couldn't believe that you hadn't gotten it for yourself before now?! :-) I have!...a whole beading supply kit, antique butterfly pins, and glass baking pans...which I now don't know what I would do without!!
      I've also gotten a few gifts over the years that I wish I hadn't gotten....a huge blue smurf that took up a whole corner in my house, a fingernail drying fan, and a single convenience store red rose...that we years later found out was a 'crack pipe' tool!!! LOL...But I digress!! ^_^ 
       I wanna share some things I think you might love as gifts...even if you never knew you wanted them before now! :-)And some of them were in this treasury by Eshkar, entitled Gifts For All...


       The first one being a certain crochet flower necklace from a little shop on Etsy called Wuglyees. :-) ...


       You may never have thought you wanted a crochet flower necklace, but you might be surprised how much you like it once you get it...so I hear! ^_^

       And how about these cuties (below), (and including the leather flower ring in the header photo) that were from the above treasury?... 



       I would venture to guess...and it's probably a safe guess!...that you've never said to someone: "Ooooo! You know what I'd love as a gift?!...Some ceramic mushrooms!" ^_^ But, as you're looking at them right now, I just know that you could think of somewhere in your house where they would look so cute!!...on a fireplace mantle, a kitchen window sill, the glass cabinet that houses your "good" dishes?! :-)

           But wait! There's more! ^_^ I found some gifts you didn't know you wanted as gifts that weren't in this great treasury!! Look-a-here!...


        It has such beautiful artwork, and such wonderful colors! And what is it?!...


         It's a painting of a village of bird houses, floating amidst gray skies, on........a  vintage book cover! How cool is that?!! :-) You can just pick which book you wanna put it over, and enjoy the look on people's faces when they see you reading it! 

      Or how about some gorgeous finger jewelry...which you can wear on your finger while you're reading your book :-) ...



      If you've been following my blog for a while, you know my love of the color green...and my love of an 'emerald cut' anything!...This ring is BEAUTIFUL!!!!

       But if you're more into blue, how about this ring...


        ...It's 14k white and yellow gold, with diamonds and a bezel set synthetic sapphire!...Sooooo pretty, whether you thought you wanted it or not! :-)

       Speaking of which, being a girl that has baked many a turkey in my day, and had many a large gathering at my house eating turkey and stuffing until I almost couldn't breathe!!..LOL...I now wish that somebody had given me this as a gift!.....


       ...How cool would it have been to eat slices of turkey from the platter until this gorgeous Fall-colored turkey showed up!!...Proving that there's always MORE turkey!!!...because for days afterward there always 'is' more turkey!! ^_^

       And the last gift....a comfortable gift!....are these...


      Oh, how I would love to be squeezing my tootsies into some of these slippers right now!!...But nobody gave them to me as a gift....YET!! :-) ...What do I have to do..make a request, People?!!! ^_^ ...Consider it done!!!

      Okay...off I go! I'm leaving you just a little poetry. :-)) Have a good day, Everybody! :-)

Poetry

Poetry, the gift of words,
that help you say whats in your heart;
that puts your thoughts of life together,
but pulls emotions all apart.

Poetry, your quiet friend,
that gives your voice a place to land;
that gives the things you'd  never say
a way to jump out from your hand.

Poetry, done to a beat,
a beat of words, said right in time,
without confusion of the music,
but just the rhythm and the rhyme.

Poetry, phrase harmony;
the way a noun and adverb meet;
the way they line up side-by-side,
and all Not needed they delete.

Poetry, the passing thoughts,
and all the others I hold dear,
of all the people and the places
that I've  written down right here.

Poetry, the gift of words,
and putting them together too;
Without the pen and paper
what in the world would my mind do?
