Who?!.......ME?!! O_O

       It's here!!!!....Rain!...I knew it would get here. I could feel it in my bones. Ugh! That's such an old lady thing to say...But guess what?...I'm an old lady! LOL...And I'll go you one better! My bones also feel like snow is on the horizon. And guess what?!...UGH!...It may actually snow here today too!!! O_O
      I couldn't believe it when the weather man mouthed the words "snow showers", talking about our forecast for today!...And here I was dreading the rain!...That'll 'learn' me!! LOL...Oh well, at least I have the memories from this past beautiful weekend to hold me over. :-)
      MOVING ON!!...

           ^_^ Okay.....NOW I'm moving on!!...{But if you're not quite ready to move on yet, and you want a delicious looking soft polenta with tomato sauce recipe for comfort, head on over to Framed Cooks blog! Just click the above photo}

        Usually I'd be roaming around Etsy...

            ...and sharing with you all kinds of creative items handmade by all kinds of creatively talented people! :-) ...but not today. Today I'm going to show you what I've been doing!....Is that wrong?! O_O Do you have some days when you just want it to be about YOU?!...If not, please be patient with me for today, because I'm about to show off my latest crochet necklaces!! ^_^

       Not these!...These (above) are boutonnieres! ^_^ I know it's hard to tell the difference sometimes as to 'what is what' with my flowers, without me telling you! ^_^ That's because, really...with a little change of a button, comb, necklace, or pin...most of my crochet flowers can be altered to use any way you want!
        But I was a crochet flower making fool the last few days! And here's the ones I've taken pictures of so far....* rainy weather is great for taking pictures in...F.Y.I. ^_^ *...

          I love the midnight blue turquoise thread in this necklace!...And I love the vintage car button I put on it! I've been saving it for a very special flower...and I think I found it!...Hey! Cars are not just for men, you know! :-)

         It's less than 2 inches across (5.1 cm)!...All that wonderfulness in such a small place! LOL

        But turquoise blue was only one of the colors I was working with!...

         All of these will be listed in my shop some time this week...rain or not! ^_^ {If you're interested in purchasing any particular one, just let me know and I'll list it right away for you. All of the necklaces,...some being priced because of the rareness of buttons and materials,...will range from $13.00 to $18.00 dollars.

      If you're a regular jewelry wearer, you may not have given 'crochet jewelry' that much of a thought! But I'm here to ask you to!! ^_^ You can wash it even! How often can you say that about your jewelry?! ^_^
       And the colors and buttons you can accent your outfits with are endless!...

        You can go cream colored, with a touch of brushed gold on a button...

      Or go tangerine, with a rare tennis rackets button!...

       Or go tangerine AND gold...

      And yes, I'll still be making boutonnieres too! Especially when I have such interesting buttons to show off on them! :-)

         Phew!...I really 'have' been crocheting, haven't I?! O_O And these aren't all of them either! These are just the ones I've photographed so far...I'll be sharing the others as I list them. But for today...that's enough of me...talking about ME, I mean! LOL Even though you know...because I wrote a poem about it! much I Love Me! LOL

"I Love Me!"

I love the confident me.
I love the cooking me.
I love the sexy me.
I love me.

I love the cuddly me.
 I love the caring me.
I love the beautiful me.
I love me.

I love the supportive me.

I love the creative me.
And the one who created me,
because he helps relate to me
why I love me.
And I do love me!


  1. Sorry you're having all that rain and maybe snow too. It's been so beautiful here that I was sure you'd be getting our weather. Hopefully it improves for you soon.

    I love the black one! It sure would look great with those black earrings you saw on FB! :) I also love the one with the tennis racket button! How cute!!!

    Nice poem too. I need that one right now. :\

    1. Hi Cindy! :-) Well, so far, no snow! Only rain....rain....and more rain coming! :-/ 'Get a move on', getting that sunny weather pattern spinning in our direction, will ya! LOL...Thanks for the input about my new 'babies'. :-) I must say, I'm a fan of the black one too...and the tennis rackets one also...Go Figure! ^_^ And I don't know why you need a 'self pep-talk' today, but I understand. That's why I wrote the poem in the first place a while ago. I was having a bad day and needed to remind myself that there are some things to love about me as well. :-) ...Uhhhh...I may have over-shot it a little...*Teehee*

  2. It's OK to toot your horn! Those are beautiful. The yellow one is screaming "Spring!" Your buttons are really cool. I have a big tin just full of weird buttons and I don't do anything with them. Maybe I need to mail them to you! I hope the snow never makes it. We had rain and cold all weekend and snow was forecast for Cleveland and east..we're southwest of them and had no rain or snow today...the sun even peeked out from the clouds! Not a bad day at all. Have a good week!

    1. Hi Yaya!...We're having a tiny reprieve from the rain at the moment....a tiny one! We're due to have rain through Thursday! And the weather man said we might get a snow "flurry" tonight. Hey! A snow "flurry" is better than a snow "shower"....right?! O_O ...Anyway!!...BUTTONS!!!! ^_^ I love them! And I never turn them down! LOL
