Anything You Can Do...I Can Do Better....?!!


     Hello!...and Happy Saturday to you! :-] Easy for me to say, right?! I'm just getting up! ^_^ But not so easy. I actually didn't sleep restfully last night. It probably was the remaining jabs from all of that rain we got yesterday!
      Anyway!...this morning it's just beautiful!! Sunny, bright, 'hummingbird happy' weather! ^_^ Good weather to loosen muscles and bones, and digest pizza from a well eaten 'virtual' date night! ^_^ And on that note...*burp!*...let me move on! LOL

     I thought I'd just show you the three eye-catching items I found in some Etsy shops that inspired me to make three 'better'....well, I tried anyway!...crochet boutonnieres! :-) Starting with these gorgeous earrings!!!...


      They were so pretty that I had to show you them from three different angles!! :-) Soooooo pretty!!...And here is my crochet 'pumpkin boutonniere' counterpoint...
 

     I didn't try to put any Howlite color on them....that would've made them look like 'knock-offs'. O_O What?!......Are you laughing?!!.....Anyway! I left the white stone part to these cute earrings! :-)
 

      I didn't want to leave the white idea alone all together though...That's when I saw these!!...


      Aren't they pretty?!....I'm sure they taste pretty good in green tea or coffee too! ^_^ ...But for the sake of my theme today, I won't talk about their taste. I'll talk about their look!!...So cute that I decided to do it 'better'...in my crochet way! :-) ...


      Okay! Okay!...It's not 'better'!!! ^_^ And trust me when I tell you...cotton thread...no matter what color it is!...doesn't taste good!...uhhhhhh...Don't ask me how I know that either!! LOL

     Moving on!!! ^_^ INSPIRATION!!!!...


      My attempt at 'better'..sorta, kinda!...


      What do you think?!...And yes, I know, there's no such thing as 'better' when you're comparing wonderfully creative with fabulously talented...which all of these Etsy artisans are!! :-) But the 'trying' is what gives me fuel...and direction....What else am I gonna do while I'm sitting and looking out the window, and when my stomach is so actively trying to digest some leftover pizza?! ^_^
       Have a good Saturday, and weekend, Everybody!! :-)


Backyard sounds

Flitting, flying, flapping, creeping.
Swaying, floating, chirping, leaping.
In our backyard sounds are heaping.
Me and hubby always peeping.
