Heat Wave.....'Sweet' Wave!!!! LOL
It almost looks like candy, doesn't it?...the brooch in the header photo, I mean! ^_^ Maybe it's just me! LOL I 'have' had candy on the brain today! You can blame hubby for that though. He bought a little bag of 'Mary Jane's' last night, and I started down 'memory road' as soon as I saw him eating them! :-)
I think I told you guys a while back about the little neighborhood store that was down the lane from where I lived as a little girl. The store where we would go almost every morning before school and buy penny candy! Ummmmmmm! :-) Oh! The 'hot balls', 'pixie stix', 'squirrel nuts', 'Mike 'N Ikes', etc.....!!!!!! ^_^
ANYWAY!!!! LOL Hubby gave me one or two, or eight, of his peanut buttery caramel 'Mary Janes'...Ummmmmmmm!...and all is now well! :-) Except that everything in the house is starting to look sweet and delicious!! LOL
Now what was I talking about?! O_O ... Oh Yeah! My now finished crochet tote bag!! ^_^ ...
Don't look at the photos too closely. They're not very good! But, in my defense, it's very hard to make deep green look good!...especially in yarn!...No matter how I laid it, propped it up, or positioned it...it still didn't get proper justice. O_O
And I'm actually very happy with this one! :-] I put a lot of love into this bag. It has a sewn on flower, button, and beaded 'candy-style' brooch! :-) And it's actually two whole totes crocheted one inside the other!...instead of settling for a flimsy tote with no lining! Even the handle straps are doubled! It's a very substantial and soon-to-be-practically-used-by-someone tote! ^_^
And no sooner did I finish it than another project was in the works!! :-) ...
My girlfriend brought me a bag of yarn that was given to her by her aunt, and I got started on a gift scarf for her right away! :-) You always should show yourself thankful when someone gives you something fabulous for FREE, right?!!! ^_^
And if somebody out there wants to give me a bag of penny candy for free....Oooooo! Just watch me be thankful!!...or in a sweaty sugar coma!....(We're in the midst of a minor heat wave here in Massachusetts right now.).....Whichever comes first! ^_^
Have a good rest of the day, Everybody!! ♥
It's not right...I know,
to start your day with a chocolate face;
But the M&Ms with peanuts
gave my dream such a lovely taste.
It got me really thinking
about the candies of my youth,
like "Pixie Stix" and "Twizzlers",
WOW! I had such a big 'Sweet Tooth'!
I remember in the playground,
trading candy like a stock.
It's a wonder you never hear
of kids going into "candy shock"!
'Hershey's with almonds',
'Kit Kats' and 'Peanut Bars';
Chocolate 'Reese's cups',
'3 Musketeers' and 'Mars'.
'Pay Days', 'Sugar Babies',
'Nestle's Crunch' and 'Heath Bars' too;
'York Peppermint patties',
because hard candies just won't do.
'Snickers', 'Milky Way',
All that chocolate, good for me,
but not good for household pets!
'Twix', 'Reese's Pieces',
'Almond Joy', and Oh Yeah!, 'Mounds';
'Tootsie Rolls' and 'Whoppers'
I could eat them by the pounds!
'Dove Bar', 'Now or Laters',
'Laffy Taffy', 'Zagnut', 'Skor'.
Okay, I'm gonna stop now,
but there's plenty, plenty more!
Now that I'm grown up
I don't eat candy all the time.
Instead, I have sweet dreams of it,
and write a candy rhyme!
