What's a girl to do . . .



Donald left this morning heading towards Birmingham.

His folks are moving from their home to a smaller place, so he's going to be helping with whatever needs doing before, during, and after.

He's a good son,

 and he's a good husband.

He's the best partner in the whole world.

And i hate it when he's not here.

He's also a good dog dad.

Annabelle is already pouting.  She making sure I notice that she won't look at me and prefers the company of some of her toys.

So - what am i doing to entertain myself?

Shopping is always fun.

But since I can't bring myself to put on make-up and get dressed suitably to go out, shopping on-line will work just fine.

Bare feet, yoga pants, and a soft comfy tee are perfect on-line shopping apparel.

One of my first on-line clothing stops is always

And today I spied this -

Cute, Cute, Cute!


The price tag for this funky adorable muffler ($398) is way out of my wallet's comfort zone.


It just so happens, I have a long white muffler.  Actually, i have a couple long white mufflers.  What is it about me and scarves?  I still have a few I wore in college.  And several I wore with suits when i worked at a bank in the 80s.

And, being a crafter, I have tons (and tons) of yarn from past needlepoint, knitting and weaving projects.

And wouldn't you know it - bags and boxes of scrap fabric are available at


Seems as though my on-line shopping experience has turned into a do-it-yourself crafting adventure.

Hmmm, there's a stash of buttons out in my little artsy/crafty studio.  

A few buttons scattered here and there on this cute heart scarf might be just the thing.

I'll keep you posted!


That's one of the ways a gal keeps herself amused while her best buddy is away.

Who knows what other wild and crazy capers might be around the corner . . .

Oh those buttons! I don't know why I'm so fond of buttons, but I am. I have seen some great craft projects done with them, like using buttons to make a picture. If you put any buttons on that scarf, please show us the finished product. And, thanks for giving me a great idea about a winter white sweater/jacket I have. A scarf to match would be just the thing.

I hope sweet Annabelle will snap out of her missing-Donald-blues.

I love buttons too! I like using them on my collages, and used to use them a lot on counted cross stitch projects. I ordered the scrap fabric pieces, and I will keep you posted on how it turns out.
