Sometimes The Unexpected Is Pretty Cool!

         Some things in life you expect to see. Like, for instance, when I wake up in the morning I expect to look out into my backyard and see darkness...*Yeah!...Grrr! Hormones!*...and then, a little bit later, green grass growing...When you live in Massachusetts, you expect that the weather will be 90 plus degrees one day, and then, the very next day, a drop in temperature of about 30 degrees!...Yep! That's whats happening here today! O_O
      When you visit 'The Wug's Backyard Blogspot' you expect to see a flower...SOMEWHERE!...and you expect to see her going on and on about all manner of silliness...including her new found love, and attempt to control her intake of, coffee! ^_^ *Now that hubby's home my intake has increased to about three cups a week! But that doesn't have anything to do with him being around!...*twitching* LOL
     What you don't expect to see around here is pretty 'zipper' flowers, like the one in my header photo! But when I saw it...I dragged it over here so you 'could' see it! LOL...And I dragged some other unexpected things over here for you to see too! :-) ...

           It's not what you think it is. Or rather, it's not what 'I' thought it was!...It looks to me like a cross between watermelon and kiwi...But what it dragonfruit!...I'd never even heard of dragonfruit before I saw it on Kamana's blog, Journalling Through Photos...Have you ever heard of, or tasted, it?...If so, share please! ^_^ I'm so curious about what it tastes like.

      Now, pillows are something you might expect to see around here...crocheted pillows I mean. And I'm gonna show you a pillow in a few days, with a button back...

            ...sorta like this beautiful button back pillow above...*Purdy!*...but mine is a certain pink and white crocheted pillow, with a button back, and little flowers sewn on the front of it...I think you know the one I mean. ^_^ It's coming, it's coming!!!

           Something else unexpected that I saw yesterday was this...

       ...And what's really unexpected about it, is that it's decorated with used wine corks!...And no worries, the creator says that all of the wine was consumed humanely. ^_^ 

       Now, did you ever expect to see a pair of earrings like this (below)?...

          They're made out of reclaimed materials!...Isn't that cool?! The possibilities are endless with these!...Good job, creator! :-]

       Now, last for today, but certainly not least, is something that I wasn't expecting to see when I went to my etsy shop yesterday...I had sold one of my tiny crocheted necklaces a few days prior. This one...

       ...and the customer had sent me a photo with her wearing it! :-) ...

      If you're a blogger, you no doubt recognize this beautiful face. :-) It's Silke, of the blog Metamorphosis!...She bought one of my crocheted necklaces to wear for the summer. :-) Isn't she beautiful?!.....Silke, I mean.....Although my 'baby' looks pretty good around her neck too! ^_^ ...Thank you so much, Silke! You made my day!!...{If you wanna see what she thinks of it, you can click on her photo above and follow the link over to her post for today! ^_^}

       Okay, I'm out!!!....I stopped talking. Didn't expect that either, did ya?! ^_^

I Like To Talk

I like to talk;
I like to gab;
I like a girlfriend
free confab!

I like to chat;
I like to speak;
I find that words
are what I seek.

I like the chatter
of a crowd;
Not in a whisper,
but out loud.

But, please no talking
while you chew.
{Speaking does 
have manners too!}

I like the noise
that utterance does.
The constant
conversation buzz.

Maybe I need a
word-free diet;
No! I could not
withstand the quiet!

So, I will talk;
Oh yes! I'll dabble
in a constant
lingo babble.

    I always enjoy looking at your Etsy finds. You have good taste! And so does Silke! She looks beautiful in it!! You must be a proud mama!! :)

    1. Hi Cindy!...Yes, I love that zipper flower too! But its a flower. Of course I love it! ^_^ And thank you for the nice comment about my tastes! That's nice!...I don't know how good it is.

  4. Such an awesome Blog Site !

    I have heard of *dragonfruit* before! I have tasted it also! I live about 15 mins from the *CHOBANI GREEK YOGURT PLANT* and have a Cousin who works there and that is one of their new flavors.

    I have to say, personally, I do not like it! It taste a little like Grapefruit or orange? And the seeds are in the Yogurt also! Nothing will ever take the place of my favorite flavor PINEAPPLE, BLACK CHERRY AND BLUEBERRY! LOL LOL LOL !

    THANK-YOU FOR THE FEATURE OF MY PILLOW COVER! So very honored! I like how you refer to them as Button Back! That sounds so classy! I think I love it!!! May I use that TERM IN THE DESCRIPTION? It truly sounds so classy, shabby chic and french country!

    1. WOW! Yogurt with dragonfruit in it!! And grapefruit or orange, huh?!....I love both of those! ^_^ And kiwi has the little seeds too, and that doesn't bother me too much either. Maybe I would like dragonfruit! :-] Thank you for the personal info on it!...Now, as to your button back pillow cover, it was my pleasure to feature it!...And by the way, I think it is kinda classy! :-) Feel free to use whatever term you like!..And thank you for the nice complement about my necklace too!...Have a good rest of the day!

  5. I have heard of dragonfruit before but I've never actually seen it or tasted it. If that photo is anything to go by it sure looks like it tastes good.

    1. Well, you have one on me! I had never even heard about it before!...And that's the exact photo she had on her blog!
