Have You Ever Seen A Fly On Your Brooch?!

      Okay...so this makes two days in a row where I'm starting my blog post with my own crochet creations!...sorry....but it's what's on my mind right now. CROCHETING! :-) Well...crocheting AND tennis....and soccer! :-)) But I'll spare you the sports talk for today...except to say: If you didn't see the tennis match between Stepanek and Djokovic today...you missed a GOOD one!! ^_^
      But, getting back to my crochet...I was slightly distracted from my tennis matches today, with my head up and down with my crochet projects! Actually I wasn't crocheting as much as I was re-fashioning some crochet!
       I turned some brooches into necklaces, and some necklaces into brooches, etc...I'm sure you've had days, just like me, where your jewelry 'spoke to you' and knew exactly how it wanted to be worn. Right?! O_O And no...I don't actually 'hear' an actual jewelry voice. That would just be weird!...and scary! Ha! Ha! I'm talking 'creatively' people!! LOL
      Anyway!...this is one of my 'new' brooches! :-) ...

      It took every ounce of me not to put a price tag of 'one million dollars' on this brooch! ^_^ That's how much I love my little rhinestone Czech flies!!...

      I'm resisting the impulse to hit the edit button and add about $20 to the price just the same!...So if you're interested in it you better get it before the impulse gets the better of me! ^_^

      This is another one of my new brooches that I haven't listed in the shop yet...




      I love the bead dangle! I got it from Cindy at CinLynnBoutique.etsy.com...

.

     This is a happy little brooch to wear...and one of a kind! :-)
 

      I already listed a new necklace too. You can see it HERE. It has a beaded dangle on it too! :-) 

      Tomorrow I may move on to some other news, like how our car repairs cost us almost $400!!!!!!!...*I need to sit down after saying that out loud...in my head! ^_^*...And how the car still needs a master cylinder...or some thing like that, for the brakes....*sigh*...And thus explains all of my showing off of my crochet jewelry! LOL If I don't sell something substantial pretty soon in my shop, I'll be standing in the line to the poor house...holding hands with a 6-foot man with a forlorn look on his face...and carrying the three pieces of my clothing I still own...while sucking air through a bag over my head, with a hole near the mouth...(so I can hook up my C-Pap machine!!! LOL)

      Oh Yeah!...I wanted to show you a couple of other people's beautiful, trendy, one of a kind crochet jewelry pieces that I found on Etsy too! :-) Look at these!!...

      It makes me happy to see so many of us crochet jewelry makers out there, with our own niche. :-] I'll say it again...there are so MANY talented shop owners on Etsy!!! :-) If you tied all of our creative energy up in a ball, and threw it down a bowling lane, we'd be...tired...and stone, stark-raving crazy!! LOL So don't do that!! ^_^ Just leave us to our own devices...and to our crochet hooks and other creative fly accessories! :-) And go off and have a good rest of the day, Everybody! ♥

Butterfly-ish

I'm feeling butterfly-ish.
Wanna flutter...move real slow.
Wanna wander...mind and body.
Not be fast, and 'on the go'.

I'm feeling like I need
a quiet day to hang around.
Have everything wrapped up,
and just block out surrounding sound.

I'm feeling butterfly-ish.
Wanna lay in bed till noon.
Wanna have some time to morph.
Need a tree and a cocoon.

Tomorrow they'll be time
to change and modify.
To spread my wings, add color,
like a brand new butterfly.
