Mother nature leaves me speechless since she only allows these beautiful blooms to last one night.


And then sometimes, she keeps a geranium alive for decades for many to enjoy it’s beauty.

crochet:: hats are the new black

l~o~v~e this babeh hat!!!

I will NEED to make this again.  Never wrote it down.  Hate when I do that. ARGHH!


This minion was a surprise for a friend from high school I saw a couple months ago.  She forgot we even had the conversation about Minion hats….bwahaha…I did not.

I sent it to her out of the blue and was immediately called only to be informed that she was already wearing it in Texas in July with a bikini.  THAT is my kind of life long friend!



Happy hooking!

Why do I even bother with fresh filtered water for these girls?


Within minutes of a rain storm one, then the other.


I could make MILLIONS if I bottled rain water for feline consumption…

goofy cats.

crochet:: to market we shall go

July 5, 2014

I’ve been burning the candle at both ends for a few weeks now and I’m just too gosh darn tired to write much.  So we will go with some photos of what I’ve been making lately.


And I might add that car coasters have been a HUGE hit!  Lots of special orders to match cars,  flowers that don’t look like flowers for boy vehicles…




I am almost completely out of stock, so I am taking a few weeks off from the farmer’s market circuit.  But I have learned valuable lessons for later this summer and next year.  It’s only up from here baby!!

I’ve done some charity projects in between and suddenly I am getting baby shower requests and early orders for Christmas.  I have so many WiP baskets set up in my living room I am in danger of getting thrown out of the house.  Not a bad problem to have unless you are irritating the spouse.  He’ll get over it, right?!

~Droves of hummingbirds are making me a regular at the grocery store to buy 10# bags of sugar.  Beautiful but greedy little friends!~


~ Momma snapping turtle from the pond out back made the trek across my yard to lay her eggs across the street as she has every year for 10 in a row now.  I always love to see the babies trek back a few weeks later.~

~Make today ridiculously amazing!~

crochet:: bonbon

June 19, 2014

My talented and very funny friend Jill shared this BonBon Hat pattern recently.  While she is in the throes of a southern hemisphere winter and I am in the opposite, I still felt the need to try out her pattern.  I fell in love with it.  So wonderfully squishy and thick and warm.  Oh, and she told me about the Clover pompom maker ~ definitely worth getting!!!  My BonBon experience has been fabulous.  And I need fabulous in my life every damn day.


I also did not read her directions completely.  I was a skimmer.  This first attempt will definitely be for a toddler.  Adults do not have skinny heads.  The second one?  Well, it is just turning out fantastic and will be ready for wearing in November.

But for now, I am back to making car coasters and market bags and  group yarnbombing projects and you know, stuff.  My farmers’ market days are becoming a blur, but I am finally making a little money.   My Etsy shop has had visitors & purchasers galore.    So here is a BIG THANK YOU to my wonderful friends in our little Share Week Group ~ let’s do that again soon!

Have a ridiculously amazing day!
