June Is Good For Giveaway Winners AND Grooms!

    Yes! Another month is upon us. Another month to name a Giveaway winner...the baby blanket Giveaway, which I'll announce in a minute. And another month for weddings!...I don't know about you, but if I didn't know better I'd think that time was speeding up somehow!... *wink! wink!* Okay, so maybe it only 'feels' like it's speeding up...especially for grooms about to get married!
    I'm mentioning the grooms because of a new treasury that one of my men's boutonnieres has been chosen for.  The Treasury is entitled FLOWERS FOR YOUR GROOM. 
     Once again, I'm reminded about how many creative minds there are on Etsy! Here are a few of the boutonnieres up closer...
      If you want to see the descriptions of them, check out the rest of the shop where these came from, or just plain 'out-right' buy them, just click on the photos. It'll take you directly to them.
     Oh Yeah! Let me show you the one she chose of mine from my Wuglyees shop too! :-) It's the Fluffy Yellow Czech Fly Boutonniere...
      I'm honored to have been included. So, THANK YOU pugpops!! I especially appreciate it because, even though most boutonnieres are not in the fiber category, you are a lady that appreciates a Lot of Yarns and Wooden Crochet Hooks! :-)
    Okay, on to more treasures!! The winner of the Baby blanket...
      As usual, the box was shaken up.....and shaken up some more. Hubby reached his....Hey! How did your hand get 'ashey' AGAIN?!!!...un-lotioned hand into the box.....
       ...and the name that popped up was...
      Congratulations Shannon!! (Alittlesprite) I'm kinda glad you won, because you've been so faithful about putting a new entry in on different days. See! Persistence 'does' pay off sometimes!! :-] Just email me your address and I'll get my little 'baby' in the mail right away, so it can take it's long trip to your home...down under. {Reminded me of THIS SONG :-)}
     The new GIVEAWAY begins!!! :-) This one will be drawn on June 15, 2011. You can click on the sidebar photo to see the details, but what I'm giving away this time is this...
       Yep! One of my Flip-Flop hats, with a flower! :-) 
          It's a smaller version. Not so 'floppy'. (Because I know everybody doesn't like hats like that.) This is what the original size Flip-Flop hat looks like on 'Shequita'...
      I'm going to put more photos on the Giveaway Link. So check it out there...I'm going to list the small red one in my shop...
      ...after I get some better photos of it, in better lighting. I took these just for you! Don't you feel special, having to look at 'bad' photos done just for you?! LOL
     Okay, I'm off to fix the Giveaway link now, and then.....yoyo bag handle here I come!! ^_^ Phew! Time goes by so fast!!!

Time Goes By So Fast!

Time goes by so fast!
It seems to fly just like the wind.
Before you eat your breakfast,
seems it's yesterday again!

You visit with some friends,
go to work and cut the lawn.
Then you look up from your book
and face another fleeting dawn!

You're planning what's for dinner,
jotting down the grocery list.
You wake up from a nap,
and now you're looking at a mist!

Time goes by so fast!
It seems to fly just like the wind.
Make the most out of it,
cause it may not come again!
