Artistically Colorful Cowboy Hats?

      I guess you probably know by now that my schedule for August has been a 'bear'!! Grrrrrrowl!! :-)) It's been nice!...but it's been tedious! And tedious is not a bad thing, considering the results! ^_^
      Hubby is doing great with his volunteered spiritual time for the month. A few more hours and he'll have it!! :-) And I'm doing fine too! I have a few things that need some hair needs washing, my nails need doing, I need a facial (or some soft sandpaper for my face! LOL),  and my feet?!....let's not talk about them!!! LOL...but all in all it's been a great and very rewarding month!
     I've even got my creative crochet vibe back!! ^_^ I'm making hats, and thinking: "color...Color.....COLOR!!!!" ^_^ And these are the colors of my latest hat!...

      Maroon, yellow, black, beige, and persimmon! :-) ...

      I really wasn't sure about the yellow. But I kept going anyway!! LOL...

      ...and's too late now! ^_^ It's all done!!...

      And Shequita isn't too much the worse for wear!! ^_^ (below)...

      I haven't listed it yet because I'm still working on the four flower brooch pins that I'm going to sell with it!! ^_^ That's my new thing. Flower brooch pin accessory pins! :-) The hats will have a brooch pin for every color in the hat!! ^_^

      I should've thought of that idea when I made this hat!...

      Who knows...I guess I could still alter the listing. :-) ...

      But, for now, it remains in the shop 'as is'! :-]

      Before I show you the four treasuries I was suppose to show you yesterday, let me tell you about my 'virtual' date yesterday!! ^_^ We took a long ride in the country through a section of Connecticut. :-)
      It was so nice seeing the beginnings of the foliage changing for the upcoming Fall season. It seems a bit early, especially since the weather is still quite warm! But whatever! ^_^ It was still nice anyway!! The only snafu was a small incident of RUNNING OUT OF GAS!!! LOL
      Not kidding!! LOL The car stopped right in the middle of the road!...Thankfully it was an old country road without much traffic, and hubby only had to stick his arm out of the car and wave people around him a couple of times!! ^_^ Let me stop here and give a big SHOUT OUT! to the nice man that helped push the car out of the middle of the road too!! ^_^ People are so nice and helpful in the country! ^_^
      Once we were back on the road....thanks to a friend who was quick to come to our rescue, and a handy two-gallon gas can from the trunk...which I'm thankful I let hubby talk me into buying now!! LOL...we went right back to our ride, stopping only for foot-long chilli dogs, and soft serve ice cream cones, dipped in cherry sauce!! YUM!!! ^_^ It was a great Friday date!!!!
    Speaking of Friday, this was one of the Etsy treasuries yesterday! :-) ...

      It included my crochet hat...

      ...and this artistically cute teddy bear!...

      Then there was this beautiful white-themed treasury!...

      This treasury included my recently-made lace wedding shawl! :-) ...

      Then there was this blue-themed "Sky" treasury!...

      ...with one of my variegated lapel pins in it...

      ...and this gorgeous mug!!...

      Wait! O_O I said FOUR treasuries, right?!.....Sorry. There's actually five. One was curated today and I decided to go ahead and throw it in too!! ^_^ ...

      Okay!...I'm all done for today!! ^_^ Now...back to the crochet brooch pins! :-) I have to try to finish them while the light is still good. Maybe I'll be able to get some decent photos for a change!...If I don't fall asleep first!! LOL Have a good rest of the weekend, Everybody! ♥ I have news to share tomorrow or Monday...which will be no longer August! :-]

Fall Is The Tree

Fall is the tree,
with its colors all set free
in the orange and red you see,
and the golden leaves in the
honey-colored harmony
of a busy bumble bee.

Its so beautiful that we
don't even have to pay a fee
for the stark tranquility
that just fills our heart with glee.

Fall is the tree,
and it makes us hit our knee,
and thank God so humbly
for the unlocked door and key
to our visual memory.
All the other seasons flee,
but the fall is the tree.


  1. I'm luvin all the color you're putting in your crocheted items these days! Very eye catching!
    Congrats on all the treasuries! Hope it brings you some sales.
    You're date night sounds awesome, even if you did run out of gas. That's my kind of date night!
    Have a great evening!

    1. Why, thank you, Bead!! ♥ I thought that maybe it was a bit too much color for some!! ^_^ But as you can see...that hasn't stopped me!! LOL Enjoy the rest of your beading, and your weekend, my friend. ♥♥♥

  2. We have a few trees turning colors already. The harsh winter was hard on trees around here and sound of chainsaws is everywhere. Only one day left of August and then on to the start of fall...can't believe it! Your date sounds like it was fun and full of adventure! (not to mention yummy treats!)

    1. Yes, Yaya! The trees are turning really fast this year! O_O Thankfully I still have a couple of hummingbirds visiting to brighten up the scenery though! ^_^ Pretty soon the 'white stuff' will be here...YUCK!...but for now, I'll enjoy whatever I can...even browning leaves!! :-) Have a good rest of the weekend!! ♥ Oh yeah...and happy Anniversary too! :-) I left you a 'gift'.
