Ride 'Em, NEW WEEK Crochet Cowgirl!!

      It's time to get back on the 'New-Week Pony' Y'all....and ride!! ^_^ Did you have a good weekend?!...Are you ready to start the week again?!...We had a pretty good weekend. The weather was nice. There were no big surprises...Phew! And I was actually able to get a little sleep, and a couple of new things crocheted!
       First, I wanna show you the three cool things I had my eye on...on Etsy, of course! :-) One is this beautiful piece of pottery...

       ...Just looking at it makes me smile...and makes me wanna click the "Add To Cart" button!! I think it's because of my Cherokee Indian heritage. Although I don't know what tribe this piece is representative of...It doesn't matter. It's beautiful, isn't it?!

      Another piece is this summery looking necklace...

        With that pretty shell, and, of course, that pretty flower, I just wanted to get it, throw it on with some flip flops and a wrap skirt, and go find a beach or a barbecue somewhere! ^_^ Okay...a barbecue. You know I'm not a beach person....sand between my toes...YUCK! LOL

       Lastly....just because...

        I'm always drawn to gold and yellow jewelry. I don't know why, but who cares why! ^_^ But wait a minute!....maybe it's because they look like honey! YUM! :-) ...Uhhhh...can you tell it's breakfast time now?!

       Okay, before I ride off into the "New-Week" sunset...or sunrise, since it's BREAKFAST TIME!...let me show you the two new items I made over the weekend.

     One was a new crochet ring, a green and white one...Okay, I can't stay away from the green!!!! LOL I'm convinced that there's gonna be a bride or a formal occasion where someone just has to have GREEEEEEEN!!! ^_^ ... Or it could be because that's my favorite color right now, and my brain keeps saying: "Make a green one. I don't think you have one like that yet!" LOL

        JUST LOOK AT THE RING!!!! Ignore the old lady lumpy hand! ^_^ YIKES! What was I thinking, using my own hand for a cute flower photo?!! LOL

 it from the palm area. That's better! LOL

      Then I made this...

       IGNORE THE YARN SPOOL! LOL...I was experimenting at a new way to photograph one of my cuff link lapel pin boutonnieres. What do you think of having the spool of yarn under it?!

       It was very colorful anyway! :-)

        I can hardly believe that I went into the vault and pulled out one of my rare Swarovski Crystal fly buttons to put on here!...Now it's just gonna be a matter of me not over-pricing it just so no one will buy it! LOL...Because I know how rare they are, I kinda don't want to sell them. But I've got to use them. What kinda nut keeps buttons, even rare buttons, in a plastic container, wrapped up in pink foam tissue paper, and just opens it every once in a while to look at them and smile?! O_O ... Don't be judging the crazy person, neither!!!
      I'm off!...Have a good beginning of the week, everybody!....Ahhh...go ahead and have a good 'whole' week, if you want to!! ^_^

 Monday, Monday, Monday

Here comes another Monday!
Your frantic work week has begun!
Say goodbye to 'Take It Easy',
and all those things you haven't done.

Four more week days are ahead,
seeming like they'll never end.
But just think, before you know it,
"weekend" will be round again.

Lift your attention, all you mothers;
Week day workers, "Out The Door!"
Time to file, and diaper babies,
walk and scrape things off the floor.

Here comes another Monday!
Whether you want it to, or not!
Say goodbye to 'Take It Easy'.
You've got things to do...a lot!

Monday, Monday, Monday!
Why do you have to come so fast?!
And you stay so long! Why can't
the weekend 'Take It Easy' last?!


  1. First off...good morning!
    I didn't know you had Cherokee Indian in you! Awesome!! I have a friend who is almost half Cherokee!!
    I love that cute little cuff link you made!! I'm sure that one won't last in your shop!
    Great finds once again on Etsy too!
    Have a wonderful Monday!!

    1. Good Morning to you too, Cindy! ^_^ And yes, my mother's father was Cherokee. In fact, my mom's maiden name is Cherokee. I may be like 1/4th or so Cherokee...I think. ^_^...And thanks for the nice feedback about the cuff link lapel pin! I'm gonna try t list it later today, if I can settle my mind on a price. I'm having a hard time with pricing. Not pricing the materials so much, but pricing my labor....Anyway, have a good week my friend! :-]

  2. Oh what a great post and the blog Wow !!
    Thanks for the feature along with these amazing sellers . Shared like crazy :D Have a beautiful day !!!

    1. Awww! Thanks Diana! :-) I'm glad you liked it!...And thanks so much for sharing it too!...YOU have a beautiful day also! :-]

  3. Love the fly! It's very cool and I bet someone out there will snatch it up and I hope you do have a big price on it because then you won't feel so bad to say good-bye to it! Yep, it's Monday and I'm glad my work day is done and now I can move on to Tuesday...why does that not make me smile? Oh, well, your poem did!

    1. Thanks, Yaya! :-) That makes two of us, loving the fly button now! Ha! Ha!...I hope you're right about somebody snatching it up though. I still think the price is too low, but unless I get some info about it's exact worth, I'm leaving it as is...By the way, I hope your Tuesday goes smooth as glass too! ^_^ And thanks, about the poem.

  4. That fly button looks amazing & goes so well with your boutonniere. The colours blend together nicely. I like how you had the yarn spool underneath but it doesn't really give any indication to it size that way. Although when you have it in your hand you can see how big or small it really is. Not much help here am I :D
    I hope your week got off to a great start :)

    1. Thanks so much, Jo! I have a handful of other ones, but I'm having a hard time parting with them...Thanks for the input about the spool of yarn too. It was helpful. :-)...Have a good week!

  5. Those are lovely things you have your eye on...
    The necklace looks gorgeous.

    1. Thanks Ann!...and I agree about the necklace.

  6. Love the ring but the cuff link is precious. Great idea!

    1. Awwwww! Thank you!!! ^_^ It was an idea born out of desperation...and torn up button holes! LOL

  7. Thanks for the feature! Such a great way to start off the week :) Have a lovely one!

    1. Hi!..The feature was my pleasure!...Have a good day! :-)
