Nothing Major...Just Wanted To Share!

        I haven't told you a few things that have been going on around here lately...nothing major. But I just felt like sharing today...Translation: I slept about seven hours, so WATCH OUT WORLD!!! LOL...Just kidding. ^_^
     One of the things I wanted to share with you was a couple of new Etsy shops I found. They both specialize in cool items.  BeachBlues (above header photo) specializes in the coolest re-dos of Mason jars!!...These painted and distressed ones can hold school supplies for the kids...

    ....Or you could use them for decorative Fall flowers, put in specific spots in your house...

       ...Or you could decorate tables at a wedding, with them holding a little bouquet of pretty flowers! :-) ...

       Such a pretty use!...Not like the uses I'm putting the jars to in my house! LOL...My jars are holding marbles, paper clips, buttons, jewelry bags, old and melted peppermints.....don't ask! LOL

       And how pretty are these silver Mason jars?!!...

     ...And these shabby chic ones!...

     How great would a table look with soft lighting from a shabby chic Mason jar!...Once again I say...Etsians are so creative! :-)

      Before I share the other Etsy shop, let me share a couple of things going on with us...Some of it is not so fun, so be prepared. O_O

1. Hubby's mom is STILL in that house!...No takers for selling yet, and no place to move to. Grrr!...I'm worried because winter is just around the corner! 

2. Hubby has a cataract, a small one, in his eye. Apparently he's had it for a looooong time, so it's not causing him any problems....except that it's inspiring him to become Mr. Funny Man! ^_^ Last night I had to be an un-willing audience for his 'Cataract Rap' singing! LOL...Stop laughing! You'll only encourage him...and I'll be the one to suffer!! LOL

3. We are between health insurances right now. The one we had from his old job ran out, and the company we applied for is REALLY SLOW about getting things on the road!...."Fill out this and that."....."Oh! We're sorry...we forgot to send you this and this. They have to be filled out too! Look for them in the mail....Ummmm...around the same time when pigs fly." ^_^

4. Friends of ours were burned out of their home a couple of days ago! O_O Terrible!!! And they have four children!...Water damage, temporary hotel stays, no furniture, moving to a new place, UGHHHHH!...I feel soooo bad for them! But I also know it could have been worse!

5. I got 4 more sales last night! :-) ...My crocheting always gives me something to smile about, no matter what else is going on!...Now I have to list the other 8 lapel pins I made over the last couple of days!

      Okay....Phew!...Let me move on, and share something that you can definitely smile about! :-) ...

       Hand blown glass pumpkins!!.... :-) ...beautifully colorful hand blown glass pumpkins!!....Oh! I love them! And I love this shop! The shop is ajjewelrydesigns!...Somebody from this shop is really talented!! :-]

      They have sapphire blue pumpkins...

        ...Orange multicolored pumpkins!...

    ...Small Yellow Pumpkins!...

   ...Purple pumpkins!...

    ...An orange pumpkin...of course! :-) ...

     ...And my favorite...a multicolored pumpkin, with strong green and blue tones! :-) ...

      Aren't they gorgeous?!! :-] And what I love most about them is that you could decorate almost any spot...year round...with them! ♥♥♥

      Okay, I've got to go and wrap up some lapel pins and get them in the mail!...Thank you for sharing your time with me! :-) Have a good day. Y'all!

 Why Do You Have To Share?

I know you're probably wondering:
"Why does she feel the need to share?"
I'll tell you. It's no secret!
It's because...Oh Well...YOU'RE THERE!

Why should I suffer this alone
when I can whine right in your ear?
And, after all, you came to visit,
and you still are sitting there!

Why should I keep it to myself...
this so-called 'Too Much Information'?
If you leave it up to me
they'll be a 'Listen To Me' nation!

I like to share my good and bad.
I've done it for so many years.
But you don't really have to listen.
You could amputate your ears!


  1. Sorry that your hubby has cataracts. Hopefully your mother in law will get out before winter. I'm glad you're getting more sleep. I love the handblown pumpkins, and I'm sorry for your friend's loss.

    Also, congrats again on the sales!! I hope they keep coming in for you!! :)

    1. Hi Cindy!...His cataract is only a small one. In fact the doctor isn't gonna do anything with it because it's not causing him any issues. He's had it, apparently, for years without even knowing!...About mom...I hope the same thing!!...Thanks for all of your support in getting traffic to my shop, Cindy! I probably should be on more sites, so that I can pull traffic to the shop at least, but I have my hands full just crocheting and keeping up with everything else. I don't dare add anything else!!! You know what I mean! ^_^

  2. 7hours?!!! Great!!! So happy for you. Cool weather feels nice...

    1. Yes....7! It was great! :-) And it's been happening every so often lately. I enjoy it every time it happens because who knows when the abundant Zzzzzs will end!! ^_^

  3. So sorry about your friends who had the fire. I know a couple with kids who are still living with her parents after losing their house to the hurricane last year. Makes me appreciate my good fortune.
    On a happier note, I love those pumpkins!! And congrats on your sales.

    1. Thanks Jan, for the concern about my friends. It's such a tough, tough situation. As you say, it makes you really appreciative of your own situation!...I'm sorry to hear about the couple you mentioned too! I can't imagine being displaced for a year!!! O_O I sure hope my friend's situation doesn't drag on that long!!...Oh! Life!...And thanks for the nice words about my sales too. I'm trying to catch up to you now! :-))...NOT!!

  4. I was sorry to read about your friends losing their home. You're right though it could have been much worse.
    I totally agree with your comment about people on etsy. They totally amaze me with how skilled and creative they are. I'm often surprised by what they create.
    I had to laugh about your hubby and his cataract rap. I know I shouldn't encourage him...

    1. Thanks for the kid words about my friends who lost their home. It's a tough situation, but they're trying to get things back to some kind of normality now...And hubby's 'Cataract Rap' has taken a hiatus for a while...thankfully!!! LOL
