What on earth would possess a person to buy so much candy? Well, let me tell ya. Last week a co-worker asked me if I had seen any Christmas trees made out of candy. She had seen them a few weeks before, but she couldn't remember where. I had not seen them, but it did peak my interest. So, I went straight to Google to see what I could find. I didn't find any trees that I liked, but I did find some candy bouquets. I told my co-worker that I would play around with a few ideas this weekend and see what I could come up with. Below is what I came up with.

My friend and co-worker, Joy, is having a baby boy! We're so very excited for her! I made my ripple for her new little bundle. I love the ripple as it is, but I wanted to add something a little extra to it. I got the idea from a blanket that I saw on Etsy.com. I made mine a little different, though.

We love you, Ada. We will miss you every single day, for the rest of our lives.

I have made so many hats with no intended recipient in mind. I just love to make hats. I love the sense of accomplishment and love the feeling I get when something can be called "Done"! I now have quite a collection of hats with no home, so I decided to try my hand at running an Etsy shop.
An Etsy shop will help me in many different ways. Money has been extremely tight as of late, so I thought if I can sell some of my hats, I will make a little bit of extra money and I will be clearing out my hat inventory to make room for even more hats. I also want to sell other items, but for now I will start small with just hats and a few scarves.
Wish me luck and please visit me at my shop.
Until next time......xoxoxoxo

Hello out there! I just wanted to share a few pictures of this beautiful rainbow that we were blessed with yesterday. The picture quality isn't the best and they really don't do the colors justice. It was the brightest rainbow I have ever seen in all my years. Of course, trying to take a good picture while driving isn't very smart. What? Well, there was nowhere to pull over to take a picture. :D
Speaking of bright colors. Take a peek at some of the hooky goodness I've been whippin' up.
Hats, Hats, Hats and more Hats!

There is an annual neighborhood yard sale here in Johnson City that is HUGE! It's called the Tree Streets Yard Sales. The streets are all named after trees. Pine, Maple, Chestnut, and Poplar. You get the idea, right? In 1996, the Tree Streets gained its’ first historical recognition by being accepted for the National Register of Historic Places. The Tennessee State Historical Commission awarded the neighborhood
Historical Status as the only such neighborhood in Tennessee. I love walking alone the sidewalks of the tree streets. It has such a "Leave it to Beaver" feel to it. The old houses are beautiful to look at. There are Colonials, Bungalows, and my favorite Queen Anne Style. Oh, how I would love to have an old Queen Anne style home out in the country somewhere.
OK, enough dreaming. On to why we're here. I am so excited about my finds!
OH MY WORD! Look at all this loveliness! I tell ya, when I'm at a yard sale and I see yarn, I get so excited I can hardly breathe!
I found some Lucyesque nylon. I really have no idea what I am going to make with it yet, but just having it makes me happy!
A 2010 calendar. I don't care that it's last year's calendar. It has lots and lots of patterns! Some of them look very, very familiar. I think I have even seen some of them on Ravelry!
Lion Brand Wool-Ease. I love this denim color. I think a scarf is in order for this chunky bit of heaven!
I feel like I won the jackpot! I go to a lot of yard sales and I am always looking for yarn or anything crafty. Most times I don't find anything, so a find like this makes all the empty trips worth it.
Have a great weekend, ladies!
