A Little This And That...While It's Snowing!

       Once again, I'm in 'slo-mo' this morning. Or for those of you not use to my short-cut sentences...I'm in 'slow motion'. I feel like my feet are in quicksand...and my head and body are repeatedly being banged on by a drum stick...or a hammer! O_O Yeah! It's one of those kind of days already!!
       The fact that it's snowing and raining, and the wind is blowing...*I'll show you a few backyard shots in a minute* probably the reason I'm feeling like I do...O-U-C-H!!!! O_O But you know me!...Onward and upward! :-] Let's turn some lemons into lemonade!! ^_^
     Let's see some good in this foul weather!!! :-) How pretty would you be wrapped up in the scarf that's in my header photo?!!...

      It has such pretty colors, and you can wear it so many ways!'s not like everybody else's scarf! ^_^ It's certainly not like any of mine!!
       The scarf below is another example of a scarf not being like everybody else's!...

     Both of these Etsians (Etsy shop owners) are after my own heart with their creativity! :-) I love them!!...If only I could find a creative way to like aches and pains in the winter-time!! LOL...But there isn't that much creativity in the world presently!!! LOL

     Even my resident woodpeckers, who are in the habit lately of just hanging out on the feeder...I mean for LONG periods of time NOT eating, just checking out the lay of the land in the backyard...aren't interested in 'hanging out' in this weather!! ^_^

      Me?!...When the 'ouchiness' allows, I crochet, crochet, and crochet! :-) ...*Tomorrow I'll tell you what happened with the lady that came to question me...sorta.*

        This is my latest boutonniere...

     I worked on it while listening to the fellas sing on 'American Idol' last night...*Just saying, a couple of those guys can REALLY sing! The rest of them?!...Not so much, in my opinion...But 'Woot! Woot!' for trying!*
      Anyway!!...Here's the finished boutonniere...

     And here's the other one I did in green...

    They're both going into the Wuglyees shop today...I've already been in the shop 'fiddling around', but just not listing anything new! I renewed a couple of things, and took some newer photos for my large yarn brooch...

     I don't have any desire to make any more large yarn brooches. The larger ones don't sell. :-( But this one was made with my rare Czech glass fly button. I just had to renew this one!! This may be the last time though. If it doesn't sell this time, I'll be taking the button off and remaking the flower into a free gift keychain!...It's funny to me that nobody really buys my keychains, but when I send them as free gifts along with their orders I get more complements on the keychains than on whatever it is that they bought!! LOL

     Okay, I'm outta here! ^_^ But let me share this one last thing with you first!...

      Isn't this thread gorgeous?!!!...I've never used any thread like it before. I'm debating on whether I should take a chance and buy some, just so that I can see if one of my boutonnieres could be made out of it! :-) Now that would be good-looking!! :-) ... Have a good day, Everybody! Dodge the rain and snow every chance you get!!

Winter Is The Snow

Winter is the snow,
when the chilly breezes blow,
and the clouds all seem to flow,
and the birds, in flight, will go,
with their ducks all in a row-
but they leave behind the crow.

Winter is the snow,
when the farmer doesn't sow,
and its not the time to hoe,
and there's nothing left to mow,
'cause the seed, right now, won't grow.

Winter is the snow,
and the little baby doe,
with his mama's eyes aglow,
and defensiveness in tow,
'cause she's had her share of woe.

The ducks, the farmer, and the doe
respect the season, 'cause they know
that winter is the snow.


  1. We did dodge the snow here. South of us was clobbered but we only had an inch or two and it was melted by the afternoon. Now if we could please have some sunshine this girl would be a happy camper!

    1. Good for you, Yaya!...It's been snowing here all day, but it's only been sticking mostly on the grass...A little sunshine would be nice! :-)
