Fancy and Foxy!

    If you came to this blog today looking for serious subject matter or to see what new crochet project I've been working on...Sorry! I wasn't in a serious mood last night when I was wandering around on Twitter or Facebook. I was just checking out what other people are doing, and running poem rhymes over and over in my head. I saw a fancy dressed fox and said to myself: "Fancy and Foxy!" That led to me thinking about what items I would put together if that was a Treasury theme...I decided not to do a Treasury. I decided, instead, to share my Fancy and Foxy picks on the blog today!
     My first Foxy choice is the above NURSERY ART WALL DECOR. FRIENDS IN RED 5X7 PRINT. It's from an Etsy shop called LoxlyHollow. This shop is having a big sale in honor of it's upcoming one year anniversary. Buy any item in the shop and you get to choose any print absolutely FREE! Buy 2 items, get 2 prints! Hurry though, because the sale ends August 6th. Other details are in their shop announcements.
    My first Fancy choice is this VICTORIAN ASCOT TIE that comes in SOLID COLORS.
         It's from MaritimeArts. I think this would look great on a groom on his wedding day.
     The next Foxy is this FOXY FOX ART NECKLACE from pamelamichelle.
      This little necklace is made with reproduced artwork from one of her original illustrations. In fact, all of her artwork is original! Made with her own two hands! And there's so many great items in her shop to choose from too!
       It's on sale at lakeshorecreations4u . And it's the last one!! Better grab it quick! She's having a HUGE sale on other items in her shop too! Some things are as much as 40% off of the original prices!
    How about a real Fox for the next Foxy item?! It's a FOX PORTRAIT PRINT by littlefoxphotos.
      If you haven't seen her wildlife and nature photography shop, you really need to! She invites you to come and feel free to leave your paw prints everywhere! :-)
    And how about some gorgeous Fancy earrings?! These MOTHER OF PEARL AND FRESHWATER PEARLS EARRINGS can be found at the wonderful Etsy shop of CinLynnBoutique.
      She makes all of her jewelry as if she were going to wear or use it herself!
    Ooooo! This next Fox is on the move! It's a tan FOX ON A BIKE SHIRT that comes in different sizes on a 100% cotton T-Shirt.
      The shop of darkcycleclothing has lots and lots of fun shirts for you to look through. And if you buy 2 shirts, you get a surprise tote for FREE!
    My next Fancy has a name that is after this poet's own heart! It's the POETRY-BLUE VIOLET SODALITE STONES. WHITE GOLD PLATED NECKLACE from grimmandgrete.
      She believes that jewelry tells a story about who you are, and what you like. I agree!
    My last Foxy pick for today is the most adorable SLY FOX NECKLACE by  SpanishLullabies.
     She truly enjoys creating pieces that inspire feelings of days gone by, and of beauty and romance. You can tell that by just looking at this piece, can't you?!
    And the last Fancy item is this gorgeous KNITTED ORANGE BAG NUMBER-034.
     You can find this at NzLbags on Etsy. Her shop announcement page says that Quality is very important to her. Just looking at any one of her bags, you can tell that that's true!
    So, that's what I think is Fancy and Foxy. I may try to write a poem about it now too! :-) What things would you pick for this category? Hmmmm?!


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 line-by-line,
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?
