Saturday Steps In With Another Bang!

     Surprised you, didn't I?! There's not a snowflake in sight on today's post!... ^_^ Unfortunately, that doesn't mean there's no snow in the Massachusetts vicinity! At noon, or so today, we're getting more snow! 3 to 6 inches more...WHATEVER!!! I'm gonna just keep my head down and continue to crochet!
     The header photo is part of my latest creation. I'm gonna be doing different combinations of colors on my slippers. This crochet flower is going on the front of it. Tell me what you think of these colors together...
       I thought I'd try something different, crocheting the sole black and using the brown for the rest of the slipper.
     I made the flower with the same brown, and a contrasting mixed yarn. Then I put some antique buttons on them, for a little character.
      What do you think?!...Well, believe it or not, that's it people!!! LOL I don't have anything else to talk about!! It's a slow moving Saturday morning, and I'm feeling kinda mellow. Maybe it was too much sleep. You know how rarely that happens!! 
      Or maybe it's the music I'm listening to..."Lovely" by Sara Haze. If you haven't heard it, and you really wanna feel good about being yourself, go to and take a listen! {If you wanna hear a cute, bouncy, fun song, with a message for people trying to control you, take a listen to "King of Anything" by Sara Bareilles. The video is so fun!...Music really does soothe, doesn't it?! :-) }...And I know! I know! You've seen this poem before....but I've got crocheting and music listening to do!! ^_^

Its The Beat

The syncopated rhythm
of the tapping of your feet,
and the snapping of your fingers
to the systematic beat
make the music that you're  hearing
(that you think is kinda neat)
motivate your body's  swaying,
and you have to leave your seat;
Now you're dancing back and forth,
and causing rising body heat.
And it's all from a beat-
Yes, one syncopated beat!     


  1. I absolutely love the slippers!!! I want some!!! You are on a roll now for sure! Sorry you're getting more snow. We don't have any in our forecast for a couple of days. Stay warm and inside today.
    By the way.....that's my all time favorite poem!!!

  2. CinLynn, Well thank you my friend!! And whenever you want some, just let me know! :-) I just put the other pair in the shop today...I'm glad you don't have to deal with snow today. Actually, it's suppose to be snowing good right now, but I only saw a heavy bit earlier and nothing but rain since then. So maybe we're gonna get a break for a change! :-)...And I know that's your favorite poem. ;-]

  3. Hmm, blogger wasn't playing nice before when I tried to leave a comment. I am crossing my fingers that this one works ...
