Just Smile!...We Sure Need To!!

      As I mentioned on my blog yesterday...and therefore there are no surprises about today's post!...I had one of my Wuglyees shop crochet items, a boutonniere, included in yet another Etsy treasury! It's entitled 'Just Smile!'...GREAT NAMING, Dobromira! :-) ...

      The color scheme is all about beige...mostly. Of course, my boutonniere had a bright center break of the beige! ^_^ ...

      That doesn't mean that all beige needs to be broken up though! Look at these!...

      These were just a few of the other choices she made for the treasury...If you wanna see all of the shops, and items, just click on the treasury above. The link will take you over to the treasury itself, and you can click the links to the individual Etsy shops where each item is from! :-)

     Now, on to other news! :-) ... I have a new project upcoming, as soon as my customer gets a pattern she likes, and gets the yarn she wants me to use! :-) I'm kinda excited about this new project because it's a complete departure from lapel flowers! :-)
      It's not a crochet boutonniere...lapel flower...or brooch! It's a baby sweater! :-) ... Why am I making a baby sweater?!...Because I was asked to! ^_^ Well...actually, I wasn't asked...technically! My hubby was! :-)
      He was out in the backyard taking the photos of the beautiful Fall leaves, and a neighbor saw him and came over to ask if he could ask his wife to do her a favor...Apparently she has been asking everyone she knows...that make a baby sweater for her that matches a hat she bought. This baby hat!...

      She kept asking around, and what she found was that nobody crocheted baby sweaters!...Actually, I don't generally crochet baby sweaters either...but I have in the past! And I still know how to! :-) And frankly...I'm kinda looking forward to making something that doesn't end up looking like a flower!!
       Hopefully she'll find the pattern and yarn soon and I can get started on it. But also 'frankly'...I'm glad it's not today!...It's raining and my hands and muscles are not up to it!...OUCH!!!...We had a great weekend though...for my mind and body! ^_^ SPECIAL, SPECIAL!!! (Sorry, that's all I can say about it for now. ^_^)
      Okay...breakfast is hollering! LOL Have a good day, Everybody...SMILE! :-)

Reasons To Smile

I don't really need a reason,
to let out a great big grin;
But I do from time to time,
just to exercise my chin.

Sometimes I do it just to see
what reaction I will get,
in the places where I've gone,
and the people that I've met.

Sometimes it's just for me!
To amuse some silly thought;
Or to show just how excited
I have been at what I bought.

Sometimes a smile can change my mood,
when weather forecasts make me blue;
Or when I see a baby playing!
Oh yes! Oh Yes! I smile then too!

Truth is, I really don't need a reason.
Frowns just,frankly, aren't my style.
I could sit and write about it,
But even that would make me smile.
