"Argh, Argh, Argh"...and Chocolate!!!

    This post is really for my hubby, even though I had to put my black and white skunk scarf in the header photo as a goodbye gesture SOLD! I've been doing some big time 'Happy Dances' over the last week or so because of sales in my shop! With all of the complaining I've been doing about not getting any traffic in my Wuglyees shop, it's nice to actually have the pleasure of wrapping something up, nice and pretty with ribbons and everything, and sending it on it's way!
   I also sold another couple of items yesterday! Two necklaces!!
    Since these crochet necklaces were designed by me, with the special backing I put on them to stop them from curling, it makes me even more happy to see that somebody besides me likes them!! :-))
   I know, I know.....what about hubby?! Well, let me just say...He Went Shopping Again! LOL Before I tell you about it, I need some chocolate!!
   CinLynnBoutique's Chocolatte--I Love You! Treasury to the rescue!! It's just a stash place full of chocolate goodies! And she put my Lady Peacock Scarf in there too. How sweet is that?! ;-) Thank you Cindy! You can visit her blog...HERE...and comment on the treasury too, if you like...It was just what I needed this morning...before I tell you about my hubby's newest adventure that he went on yesterday...for me.
   I mentioned to you all recently about how my natural light light bulb "bit the dust" and that my pictures are suffering because of it....Well, suffering more than usual! LOL Well, yesterday hubby went on the hunt to all of the stores in our area to try to find me another one, starting with the store where he bought the other one..Home Depot.
   They no longer had them...But there was no use in wasting a trip to Home Depot!!! {Let me just say that it's a good thing that I didn't need a Super Duper Side-loading Washing Machine, or rather, that he didn't have time to buy it and load it up and everything yesterday! ^_^} He knew that my tape measure had also recently been killed died on me. So he decided there was no time like the present...since he was already there get me a new one!!
   And OH YEAH! They had tape measurers!! There were plastic ones, metal ones, rubberized ones, light duty, heavy duty, black ones, orange ones, 8 foot, 12 foot, 16 foot, some reading decimals, some reading inches, milimeters, centimeters, some with lights on them......!! WHEW So......what to do?!! Especially since the little 12 foot one I had before...
    ...was the one tape measurer they didn't have!!!
    When my hubby can't make a decision on which one....and he's in Home Depot {with his manly man self!}...he's gets all of them...IN ONE TAPE MEASURER!! Meet....
    ....or should I say...
   This tape measurer itself is 3 1/2 inches wide!! {or about 8 1/2 cm} And it's 1 1/2 inches THICK!! {4cm}
    And it's 26 feet long...
      Apparently I needed to measure airport runways,  football fields, and highway interstates!! LOL
    Oh well, at least I now have a convenient 'inch' versus 'centimeter' reading!
     And I'm sure this knob...if I ever need to turn it...will open a garage...
    ...or land planes!!! LOL
     Oh Yes! My hubby loves, loves, loves a GADGET!!! But usually they only hold his attention for a short time. That's what happened with these...
    But since it looks like this new tape measurer has a toaster attachment... just might hold his attention a bit longer!! LOL {I think I better hide it! ^_^} (By the way, hubby is going to do another Guest Blog Post here soon. He told me to ask you if you have any suggestions for him on what he should talk about, so please let him know.....I'M SCARED!!! LOL)
    Enjoy the rest of your Sunday everybody!! I've got to measure mine and see what it's going to be!

 Men Are Not The Same

Men are not the same.
Women, you know what I mean.
They are complicated, quiet,
not fanatics being clean.

Men are not the same.
They could care less how they look!
Yes, a generalization,
in which I could write a book.

Men are not the same.
On long detail don't waste their time.
They will say the color's green,'
Where we say emerald, teal, or lime.

Men are not the same.
Some things are obvious to see.
Like muscle mass and hair,
and the different ways we pee.

The truth is that we like it!
Our feigned annoyance is a myth.
Because if we were both the same
there'd be no one to bicker with!


  1. Congrats on all the sales!! You deserve it my friend!! Sorry he didn't find the bulb for you. I hope he finds one somewhere else! That IS a big tape measure!! I actually found one for you yesterday that is 16'. I said to myself, "self, if you lived closer to Wug, I'd buy it for her!" Have a great day my sister!

  2. CinLynn, Awwwww! You're so sweet Bead!!! :-) Thanks so much for thinking of me!!. And by the way, after he came back home last night from Home Depot and told me that he couldn't find the light bulb, but "LOOK at what I did get!" {the tape measurer}, he went and looked again in his 'Tool Stash Place' and guess what?! I already had another light bulb!!! He just put it in for me!!! :-)...Oh Yeah, thanks for letting me share your treasury too!

  3. I LOVE that scarf!!! You should do another one! GORGEOUS!

  4. Oh, how wonderful with all your sales. The same happened to me - I decided to close my etsy shop and go again with eBay, when I suddenly sold four scarves. I guess you never know. I LOVE your necklaces you sold. So pretty!! And congrats on the treasury and the super duper tape measure. I wish mine had a toaster attachment! Hugs, Silke

  5. Hanna, Awww! Thanks so much!!! And making another one is on my "to do" list already! :-]

  6. Silke, Ha! Ha! ha! The toaster attachment, I think...I mean, I could be wrong, but I a special attachment just for MY tape measurer! ^_^ And thanks for the nice words about my necklaces and the treasury feature too!...By the way, WOOHOO!! for your sales too!!! :-]
