          I saw this magnet/pinback button badge/keychain/bottle opener/pocket mirror in the etsy shop BadgesByQuake and all I could think was WOW!!...Of course it said: "WOW!" right across the front of it! LOL So maybe that had 'something' to do with me saying WOW!...But just the fact that it's so small and yet it has so many uses is enough to make anybody say WOW!...Don't you think?!
    I seemed to be saying "WOW" a lot yesterday. Some reasons were good...Like, for instance, I received a beautiful loving letter full of precious and valuable words of encouragement...and with a big check in it too!!...WOW! It was out of the blue...unexpected!...and totally WOWed me!! It wowed hubby too! :-)
     It especially wowed hubby because he had gotten a call earlier in the day from the auto repair shop that was trying to diagnose our 'sick' car, and found out that she was REALLY sick!....$2,000 sick! And more than that, even if the 'car surgery' on her was a success, she was still gonna need some more work...probably before July!...WOW! :-( ...Getting such a nice letter with a show of support for our situation was much needed right about then!
      Unfortunately, although the money that was sent to us was a substantial and well appreciated gift, it's not gonna be enough to pay for all that the car is gonna need to get done between now and the next few months...So hubby decided that the car has to go. :-( We have to come up with some other option for transportation. 
       Our sick car is like an elderly, but loved, old cow. It's time for her to go out to pasture. :-( As my granny used to say: "There's no need ,at this point, to be throwing good money after bad", trying to repair every leak she's gonna spring. And eventually....very soon, eventually...we're gonna have to get new transport anyway!....and by then we'll have wasted a lot of money!...WOW, right?!

        At least I had some pretty things (like the ring above) to look at and to WOW me in a good way yesterday :-) And I found some other things too (below)...

       Here's some other things I found in my search:

       Did any of these things make you say: "WOW!" ^_^ They did me....And here's something else I wowed over yesterday!...

      I got my new "O" magazine!! :-) ...I didn't have time...or energy read it, but I feel better physically today, so here I come "O"!! It's all about de-cluttering it appears. I flipped through a few pages. I can't wait to read the article, with the funniest pictures, of Gayle King going through the clothes in her closet! ^_^ I think I saw a few pieces that look my closet!!!...WOW!! ^_^
      There's also a couple of recipes I need to look up...

         Yep! This one looks like a real goodie!!...Who knows! Maybe if I pay close attention I'll be eating better and be all organized! LOL My house could be looking like Oprah's in no time!!!

     I think that's waaaay too much to expect from a magazine! LOL I better just keep my mind on what we're gonna do about transportation next week! That's enough to think about...organizing my thoughts! :-)

      Oh yeah! Speaking of organizing my thoughts!...I drew up the winner for my scarf this morning!.....Drum roll please!.......

      It's YOU, Dee! :-) Congratulations!...Please confirm for me that all of your info is the same and I'll get it right out to you!
      I still haven't crossed that 300 followers mark yet, so the afghan blanket is still waiting in the wings! :-) I do have kind of a special gift this time though! I'll have it ready to show you tomorrow! :-) last WOW! of the day...

      These are my new tags I just ordered from LillyThings!! :-) Aren't they pretty?!!! They reminded me of a poem I wrote recently. I'll share it below...I can't wait to get them!...And if you order something from my Wuglyees shop, you're gonna get them too! ^_^
     WOW!...Now I need a nap! :-)) Have a good day everybody!! :-)


I'm feeling butterfly-ish.
Wanna flutter...move real slow.
Wanna wander...mind and body.
Not be fast, and 'on the go'.

I'm feeling like I need
a quiet day to hang around.
Have everything wrapped up,
and just block out surrounding sound.

I'm feeling butterfly-ish.
Wanna lay in bed till noon.
Wanna have some time to morph.
Need a tree and a cocoon.

I'm feeling that today
it's time to change and modify.
To spread my wings, add color,
like a brand new butterfly.


  1. O wow you have just made my day ;-) Im so pleased and excited to receive another piece of your gorgeous crochet ;-)) Thank you so much. Yes my details are all the same still. Im so happy to hear you received a little bit of money but sad you have to buy a new car but hopefully this one will be just as nice or hopefully even better. Have a lovely day and thank you so much. dee x

    1. :-) Okay! I'll send it out right away...And about the car, I'm sad about having to get another one too! :-( It's never easy, is it?!...Oh Well, no sense crying over spilled to speak. Just gotta deal with it! And I sure hope the next one is as wonderful as this one was. It's not fixable, but we sure got our money's worth out of her! :-]

  2. Too bad about your ailing car. I guess, sooner or late, things just wear out. My, those pretty bead dangle earrings are beautiful! I have not received my latest "O" magazine issue yet but it after seeing your preview, I think I will enjoy reading it. I must check out those recipes. The LilyThings tags are absolutely lovely! It looks like a lot of work went into them ... very nice. Enjoy your day!

    1. How right you are, Julie! Sooner or later the car graveyard claims all of them. :-))...And I know you're gonna love the "O" magazine! I read some of it. Sooo good! :-)...And the LillyThings tags were custom made for me. And so reasonably priced too! Aren't they wonderful?!! ^_^ I can't wait to get my hands on them!...Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of your day!

  3. Deb, your post really put the wow in me today. Love everything that you shared with us. Some of the pieces I would like to own. Hope that your transportation needs get settled soon. Your poem is so lovely. Thank you, thank you for sharing all these beautiful things with us. Hope you have a Great Day!!!!!!!!

    1. Great! ^_^ I'm glad I was able to wow you! They were things that wowed me too!...Thanks for the nice words about the poem, and the sympathy over my 'dead' car! :-) Have a good rest of the day, Velma!

  4. Those are definitely Wow items!! Love the ring!! I'm so happy that you got the letter of encouragement just when you needed it too. Jehovah has a way of making sure we get the encouragement we need at the right time! And the check is a nice and welcome bonus too!
    I'm glad you decided to retire your car. Sounds like it would become a money pit for you so it's good timing to get rid of it. I'm sure you'll find the perfect car for you.
    Congrats to Dee!! I wanted to enter for it, but I have a scarf (thanks to you!) and wasn't in need of another.
    I love the butterfly cards! So pretty and springy! Thanks for sharing them.
    Wonderful poem always! :)
    Have a wonderful day!

    1. Hi Cin!..You're very right about Jehovah giving us the encouragement we need just at the right time for it! Now we're just waiting on direction for what the next move should be about the car situation. Learning patience! :-) And aren't my butterfly cards pretty, though! ^_^ I hope I make some sales so I can put pretty words all over them too! LOL Enjoy your evening, Bead. :-)

  5. Good luck with the car situation. I'm so glad you had a nice "WOW" surprise that was a financial wow too! You deserve it! I love the ring, but I really like that orange purse. I'm not a big purse person, but that one spoke to me! Have a great day and the butterfly just reminds me that Spring is really coming soon! Fun poem!

  6. You know...that orange bag spoke to me too! ^_^ I love orange!! It's probably a good thing I have to keep my dollars close to the vest right now! :-) I'm glad you enjoyed the poem too...And wow! Spring is coming and we haven't really had winter yet!!

  7. Wow! I'm glad you had a nice surprise but sad to hear about the diagnosis for you car. It does sound like its time for a new car.
    Love the jewellery, the dangle earrings look great :)

    1. Yes, it was a very nice surprise, Jo. :-) But that stinky $2,000 diagnosis of the car was a surprise too! Grrr! Oh well...that's life, isn't it?!...Have a good rest of the day!
