Hello!...Let's Talk Food, Water,...Weddings!

         Just like the stationary in the header photo, I'm a "Happy Camper" today! That's because I had a really good day yesterday. I slept almost all day...which is the beginning of any good day in the 'Wug' household! LOL
        I watched tennis...Saw a preview of the Tour De France bike race stages...YAY! The Tour De France coverage started about 20 minutes ago! :-) ...

        I ate well!...Hubby made a delicious tuna and egg noodle and peas casserole, with hot pepper seeds and sprinkled Parmesan cheese....YUM!!!...

      It's hard to take a picture of tuna and noodles and make it look good...but I tried! :-)

      I guess you'll just have to take my word for it! LOL..."Thank you, Honey!"

     I was also able to finish one of the wedding boutonnieres for my customer...barring his approval that is. I hope he doesn't mind me showing it to you! :-] ...

        His colors are "Autumn Red" and "Persimmon".

      The button is translucent in the middle, with silver around the edge...I was even able to find some pins that I'm able to sew onto the back of the boutonnieres!! :-) I've been looking for some of these for quite a while! (I'm not a fan of putting glue on my crochet.)...

     Hopefully I'll find out later today if he likes them. If not, back to the drawing board! ^_^ He's a repeat customer whose a fan of my boutonnieres, so it'll be a pleasure to do them any way he wants! :-)

       Yesterday I was also able to finish my project that I've been tinkering with.....wanna see?!

      And it's NOT what you think either!!! ^_^

      It looks like a mitten, but it's...

     .......a water bottle cozy! :-)

      If you work at a desk that has all kinds of desk-like things on it, a computer, a pen or pencil holder, a note pad, etc...and you're a conscious water drinker...who hides your water bottle in your bottom desk drawer or in your you can display it as a little point of colorful interest on top of your desk! :-) And if you need a little swig of water every now and then....go for it!
      I especially thought about this one day when I was talking to one of my friends who said that she freezes her water bottles over night during the summer months, but that by lunchtime it usually has melted all over her desk!...This would kinda help that, right?! ^_^ 
     I guess time will tell if this is "The Next Big Thing"! LOL In the meantime, I'm working on a turquoise one right now...with a slight pause to make some more wedding boutonnieres when I get the 'go ahead'. :-) I'm telling you, if it becomes something that I can sell through the summer slow period in my Wuglyees will be music to my ears! 

      Update: I just got a message from my customer. He loves the boutonniere!!! :-) He wants me to make 7 for his groomsmen, and another one for him too now...different colors and a different button! :-) I really am a "Happy Camper" now!!...I hope you all have a good day I did yesterday....and like I'm hoping to have again today!!! ^_^ ...With a little stop for a musical note.....Okay GO!

A Music Note

A little 'boogie-woogie' bouncing,
and a tapping toe or two,
and my mood is quickly lifting,
and I want to dance with you.

A little harmony and humming,
and some soul and country too,
and I'm feeling pretty chipper.
So "Let's dance!" My poem is through! 


  1. That's great news on your custom order! That should keep your fingers busy while you are watching the tennis. That would make me a happy camper too :)
    You're right about the drink bottle cover. I thought you had made some mittens. I would never have guessed it was for bottle.

    1. How right you are, Jo! Watching tennis and the Tour De France today, I almost finished the groomsmen's boutonnieres...except for sewing on the backings and buttons. ^_^ I'll do that tomorrow,....and then get to work on the groom's boutonniere.

  2. Lovely blog. Thanks for including our guitar earrings! :-)
