"Sandy" Is Not The Only News Around Here!!

        Don't you just love this ink drawing?! :-) It's gonna tell the story of hurricane Sandy's effect on our local area today.....windy! And we're gonna have to hang onto whatever we can hang onto so we don't blow away!
      Unfortunately, some people are already getting massive amounts of wind...and rain! :-( And that's considering that this storm is taking a path that is unprecedented for hurricanes...

      ...Instead of sweeping on by, as usual, it's taking a left hand turn and slamming into the coast somewhere in the New Jersey area, somewhere in here where I inserted the arrow (below). (The arrow is NOT on the map, in case you wanna purchase the map. I inserted that as a demonstration)...

        My arrow is not intended to be precise...neither is "Sandy"! But suffice it to say that a left hand turn right NOT normal! Not normal by a long shot!!...And as of last night, this hurricane picked up MORE strength! O_O They're really worried about power outages and stuff like that. In fact, electrical people are already on the road, coming all the way from Oklahoma and Ohio, to help with downed lines and tree removal and such after the storm!
       I just heard on the news that a ship already sank out to sea, and they're looking for two or three people that abandoned ship. :-( ... All I have to say is...don't be foolish people! Pay attention to what authorities are reporting, and follow directions for safety....PLEASE!!

      Thankfully hurricane Sandy is not the only thing to talk about around here. That would be really tiresome!...for all of us!! No, I have other news...Exciting news!..Well, exciting for ME! LOL
        One of my customers did a post and showed off the look of my boutonnieres, sitting next to pocket squares, on a well-dressed man!...I hope he doesn't mind me sharing it. He sent me the link...

       Isn't that cool?!! :-) ... You can see the full post from the blog 33 Boroughs --> HERE <... Personally I loved these photos...

       I feel like stealing Emeril Lagasse's word....BAM!!!! ^_^ To see more, check out the piece he did on WIWT. I think it means 'What I Wore Today'...--> HERE <-- :-=":-" boutonnieres="boutonnieres" feel="feel" font="font" generously="generously" he="he" honored="honored" i="i" my="my" off="off" showed="showed" so="so">

      But there's more!!....I'm starting to sound like a crochet fool's info-mercial!! LOL...I got an Etsy email from another VERY important source...I don't think I can say right now. They were looking for someone to make crochet lapel flowers by custom order, where they would contact me very often and ask for specific combinations, and wanted to know if I was interested!!!
      Hmmmm....let me see.....YEAH!!!! I'M YOUR GIRL!!!! ^_^ This may be the opportunity I've been waiting be a supplier! How about that for some news, huh?!!.....TAKE THAT hurricane Sandy news!!! LOL....Uhhhh...maybe I shouldn't be flicking Sandy on the nose, huh?! ^_^
       Anyway!....I'm awaiting my first orders after they buy a couple and check them out. I'll keep you posted as to how it goes...Celebrate with me!.......Have some green tea with your pinkie finger stuck out today!! :-)
      Okay, enough silliness. I've got some sky watching, and last minute battening down of some hatches to do!!....All of you on the east the same....NOW PLEASE!!!....The rest of you, have a good day! Hopefully I'll be back tomorrow! :-)

Describe The Sky

Evoking awe and bouts of wonder.
Such inspiration, you just want to cry.
With birds high-flying, and winds a blowing,
what words would you use to describe the sky?

Would you say, whether clouds are upon it,
that it blankets a wondrous space?
Or would you be more awed and humbled,
hoping there you would find God's face?

I would say that when standing quiet,
looking up at the sun or moon,
there's a feeling of peaceful oneness
that I hope won't go away too soon.

Evoking bouts of awe and wonder
was probably what it was designed to do;
That is, besides giving off light and weather,
and the most spectacular view! 


  1. What wonderful news for you!! Just the break you need and have wanted too! I sure hope it all works out! :D

    As for "Sandy" I don't look forward to getting slammed with that either, but it looks like it will come our way. We are already feeling the wind. I can't imagine how strong it must be there. Stay safe, and obey the warnings!!

    1. Thank you Cindy!! :-] I hope it works out to be my "break" too!!...You know me though...I'm not putting too many eggs in that basket until I hear the bawk! bawk! bawk! of the money chicken!!! LOL..And you be careful too with hurricane Sandy!!!! Stay safe, my sister!

  2. That first pic was me today! My car is in the shop so I thought (foolishly) that I could walk to hubby's office and ride home with him. My umbrella turned completely inside out and I arrived drenched and freezing! Then we had to stop at the store and I looked so lovely..not! We're getting the rain and wind, but hopefully no outages. Congrats on your lapel consignment! Good luck and make tons of money and be so famous I can say: "Hey! I know that gal! She's awesome!" Stay warm, dry and safe...forget walking in a wind storm with an umbrella...just sayin'.

    1. Ha! Ha! It looks like you may have gotten more wind than we did here in Holyoke then!...We're getting rain and wind too....Well, that's what I can see right now. I'll have to wait until the sun rises...but it was just spritzing and gusting at times. Not!

  3. Congrats on the lapel orders. You are definitely the go to girl!

    I've been watching our news here in regards to Sandy. I cannot even imagine how bad things would be and the clean up that will be required. It looks like it will take a long time for things to get back to 'normal'.
    I hope you remain safe & dry where you are.

    1. Thank you, Jo! :-) But I didn't get the to speak...yet! Sandy may blow away his store!! O_O ... And yes indeed...Sandy is a monster!!!! But thankfully it looks like she wrapped around and did a diversionary route from Holyoke!!///Whew!
