I πŸ’œ DandelionsΒ 

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’• Welcome back πŸ˜ƒ

This post started out as a collection of ‘Random Things’, with just a tiny Dandelion seed blowing across it. 😊 But Dandelions are so amazing, I decided they deserve their own space. 😍

So I set out and found some Dandelion-related funnies, pictures, inspirations, and a poem to share with you πŸ’œ

First…a funnyΒ 


Such a lovely sentiment…

An artsy idea…Β 

I think this would be an awesome gift for grandparents, aunts, uncles, if you let the wee ones ‘paint’ the flowers with their fingerprints 😍


Here’s a craft idea…


(I found this on ‘crafttricks.com)

More…12 things to make with Dandelion Flowers Β to be exact πŸ˜‹ were published by Β  Β  Β Β  The nerdy Farmwife

Here’s where I go in my dreams 😊 

I’ve had this dream of a little house, surrounded by Dandelions, for a long time now… Β  Β  Β  Living on ‘My Dandelion Farm’ πŸ’•

A little ‘Folk Art’ Doodle from last year 😁

A field of a hundred wishes 😌

 Beautiful words about a beautiful flower 😊 

Dandelion

I could tell you of a story, of this flower that I saw.
Growing in a little crack, this flower had it all.

It’s beauty got me thinking, how quicky we forget.
It isn’t where we come from, it’s that we never quit.

The struggles that this flower faced, no quiver nor a fall.Β 
It rose above the chances,Β 
through this crack that was so small.

The only will was life, and the chance that it may “be”.Β 
Exist in ways intended, and truly live as free.

This dandelions beauty, gives me the strength to know,
content with where I’m rooted,
and will to always grow.

~ Ricky LouisΒ 

I hope you enjoyed my ‘love letter’ to all Dandelions πŸ’œ

Have a wonderful rest-of-the-day 😘

See you tomorrow!

Until then πŸ’•

Thank the person who nominated you and link their blog, tell your readers three things about yourself, nominate people, notify your nominees by commenting on their blogs, ask your nominees five questions of your choice and share a link or links to your favourite posts.

Second – 3 Things about myself

1. I’m originally from Germany. That’s where I met my soldier many moons ago, and liked him so much that I’ve been following him around ever since.  😁 Β  We’ve been living in Kansas for the last 10 years…I guess you could say we finally settled in.

2. I love rainy days. I think it’s glorious to sit inside – in my favorite chair -, dark(ish) outside, but warm and cozy inside, crocheting by lamplight, watching TV

3. I absolutely despise butchered language  😣   Like vacay, delish 😳  (just typing that makes me cringe). I do wonder what people do with the time they safe by not pronouncing the whole word

ThirdΒ  – Emma posted some questions for me…here they are

  1. What is your favorite TV show?
    That’s tough πŸ€” I wanna say ‘Monk’ – I’ve been watching reruns lately, and really enjoy them
  2. What is the craft you prefer?
    I’ve done pretty much everything – right now I’ve been bitten by the Crochet Bug…and loving every minute 😍
  3. If you could live in any country, where would it be?
    I’m very happy here in the US Β πŸ˜€ Β Now if I could just scoot over a bit so I’m by the ocean…that would be perfection
  4. What’s your favorite dish
    Anything with fish
  5. Do you prefer dawn or dusk?
    Dawn – I love the possibilities of a whole new day being stretched out in front of me

Fourth ~ Some of my favorite posts

Dumbo the Octopus Β from Emma Crafts Design ~ If you love Amigurumi you have to check out that little cutie

Brenna’s Freeform BagΒ Β  ~Β  Brenna made this fabulous bag using Freeform Crochet – and she’s sweet enough to show you the process

Until then πŸ’•

Just A Few Random Things πŸ¦„

Hello my lovely friends    πŸ’•  It’s been a minute or two, hasn’t it? Actually – almost a week 😳 Oh my! I’ve been a bit under the weather all week πŸ€’ so it’s not been the most productive one. But…I’m back πŸ€— and really glad you are too!

Today I just wanna show you a few random things I’ve thought about this past week…just to get back into the swing of it all. 😁

1. A few months ago I bought some succulents, and on the way home a few of the leaves broke fell off. Luckily I had just read an article about ‘Propagading Succulents’ πŸ˜ƒ So I thought I give it a try. And guess what? It worked! 😎 See….

Well, I guess I don’t have a picture from the beginning – this is about 3 weeks in 😊 It did slow down some after the initial ‘growth spurt’

       

But they are coming along nicely 😍



2. While searching for the ‘Wildflower’ poem last week – you might remember – I came across these lovely words from Rustine Hamlett  πŸ’œ

This makes me smile every time…

 I Tried To Write A Poem…

i tried to write a poem
a poem just for You
but when i sought to find the words
like hummingbirds, they flew!

i tried to bake some cookies
a dozen, just for You
but before they hit the oven
we’d shared the yummy goo

i tried to paint a picture
a picture just for You
but the colors all ran out of line
like sunlight through the dew

i tried to plant a garden
wildflowers, just for You
but when i’d tilled and sown the soil
too tall for me they grew!

i tried to find a treasure
a treasure just for You
but when i looked inside the chest
i found a gift from You

i tried to tell a story
a mystery, just for You
but when i lost the villain’s trail
’twas You who found the clue

i tried to catch some fireflies
green starlight, just for You
but you smiled, and set the lightning free
when i brought my lamp to You

i tried to find the perfect shell
a conch shell, just for You
but all i found were little stars
who tickled like You do!

i tried to find an angel
an angel just for You
but when i told her who You were
she said “you can’t have two”

i tried to catch a falling star
a wish, made just for You
but when i did, You said “My dear,
all I’ve wished for is in you…”

i tried to write a poem
a poem just for You
this time i found all the words
to tell the world of You

Lovely, isn’t it? 😊

3.  Walking through our garden this morning, I noticed how strong the Wisteria grew this Spring and Summer 😍 Can you see how tightly it wove itself around the trellis? 




4. Now a few things worth mentioning…but -sadly- without pictures (for now). This shall be corrected real soon 😁

~ A few WIPs are almost done – mostly smalls. I’ve been working on double-layer dishcloths (worked in Tunesian Stitch in the round! 😳 It’s supercool…wait ’til you see this (I might be a smidge overexcited πŸ˜‚)

~ I baked my bread for the ‘Fantastic Bake-Off’ πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ³ It’s fabulously delicious πŸ˜‹ I’ll show ya tomorrow.

~ I collected some hilarious things for tomorrow’s ‘Weekend Chuckle’ 😜

So – that was my week in a quick review 😊 

I sure hope you enjoyed it a bit, and come visit again tomorrow! πŸ€—

Until then πŸ’•

Your Weekend Chuckle πŸ˜Ž

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’• Happy weekend! πŸ˜ƒ

Here the sky is grey, it’s raining, I hear the occasional thunder in the distance. Perfect weather for TV watching (‘Monk’ Marathon…yay! πŸ˜„), yarn and hook. πŸ’œ

But first – this… πŸ˜† 


🌺🌼🌸🌼🌺🌼🌸🌼🌼🌸🌼🌺🌼🌸🌼🌺🌼🌸🌼🌺🌼🌸🌼🌺🌼🌸🌼🌺🌼🌸🌼🌺🌼🌸

No comment 😏


🌺🌼🌸🌼🌺🌼🌸🌼🌼🌸🌼🌺🌼🌸🌼🌺🌼🌸🌼🌺🌼🌸🌼🌺🌼🌸🌼🌺🌼🌸🌼🌺🌼🌸

I never took Spanish classes…but that doesn’t sound right 😁


🌺🌼🌸🌼🌺🌼🌸🌼🌼🌸🌼🌺🌼🌸🌼🌺🌼🌸🌼🌺🌼🌸🌼🌺🌼🌸🌼🌺🌼🌸🌼🌺🌼🌸

Well…this took me a moment longer than I wanna admit πŸ˜‰

Did you enjoy today’s funnies πŸ€“

Have a fabulous day full of sunshine, love, and giggles 😍

Thanks for stopping by πŸ’œ I’ll be back tomorrow, and hope you will too! 😁

Until then πŸ’•

It’s a fabulous day πŸ˜Ž

Hello my lovely friends  πŸ’• Welcome back!

The weatherman promised us a perfect Friday 🌞 And – for a change – he was right πŸ˜‰

We woke up to temperatures in the 50s…no humidity πŸ™†πŸ» Yay! 

So we walked the dogs for a good hour. πŸ™‚ And then – because they’re not the fastest walkers…everything is too interesting, everyone is a friend πŸ™‚ – then we walked a beautiful trail nearby. Just trees, bushes, wildflowers 


We passed a cornfield 


 It’s a bit blurry – but you can see how tall the corn is 😁
Once home my daughter stopped by for breakfast before she left town for a weekend on the water.  Not as fancy as it sounds …it’s a raft on a Missouri River πŸ˜… but I’m sure she’ll have a ton of fun. 

After I waved my goodbyes, I grabbed my yarn and hook 


This little idea for a ‘Teapot Cozy’ has been flitting around in my head for a few days now, and I had to see if it can be done. Well, guess what…it can be done 😁


Now I have to recreate it 😳 ’cause every cozy needs a front and a back. πŸ˜‹

Once that’s accomplished…this time around I’ll make sure to write down every step 😏 – you will find the pattern right here for ‘Small Project Sunday’. 

But first I’ll watch an episode of ‘Monk’ – one of my favorites πŸ€“

I hope you’re having a fabulous day too! 🌞🌻🌾 

Thanks for visiting and reading. πŸ€— I hope* you enjoyed everything. 

I’ll be back tomorrow with your ‘Weekend Chuckle’ 😁

Until then πŸ’•


* I really don’t like to repeat a word in two consecutive sentences. I did get out my Thesaurus to find an alternative ☹️ Nothing! That reminded me of my favorite meme though 


πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Still cracks me up! 

Monday 😬 

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’œ Monday Blues? Nah – not for us! 😎


Yes we can! Right?! πŸ˜€

I have some housework waiting 😣 then crochet, and – of course – this little blog will see Part II of the crochet along. 😍

What are your plans for this brandnew week? I sure hope they’re enjoyable ones! πŸ€—

Have a good one! 😎 I’ll see you in a bit.

Until then πŸ’•
