Going .going...gone?

Not much Crocheting going on the last few days....I decided to share my auction case there's anyone out there interested....I have some things on eBay.and just recently listed some stuff on Yahoo...mostly things that I've listed a few times on eBay and still haven't sold...eBay just eats up the fees....Yahoo has much better fee pricing...but doesn't get much traffic..I figure I'll give most things a couple of tries on eBay then switch them to Yahoo if they don't sell..I'd like to set up my own WebShop that way I can do away with 'fees" altogether...but I'd probably still have the traffic issue?

anyway here are the links....

Anyways I DID pick up Alein Illusion the scarf I'm knitting for my older daughter Rae. Wouldn't you know I messed up the first row I did today and didn't notice it until about 4 rows later?? UGG...I decided it doesn't hardly show and is just NOT worth frogging.....LOL

Another Year Older

Today my friend N. is a year older(I can't share her age as she's VERY age senstive)...E. bought her a VERY beautiful Cake...not sure what kind of cake it had a slightly spicy flavor to it and there was bavarian cream between teh layers... it's decorated with shimmery looking white chocolate shells....It was a fun little get together....PR is only a few days away and we are ALL getting Excited....Hosted by

I am late getting to this .
I was tagged by Carmen at ( i haven't really figured out how to do links in my posts.
Music Meme:

Total number of music files on your computer: I'm not sure.....LOL..i've maybe downloaded 5! but my girls have probably down loaded more...I'm not even sure how to check..HA

The last cd you bought:

Martina McBride's Greatest Hits...I had to replace my other one it got a scratch! and started skipping all over the place.

The last song you listened to before reading this message:
When You Believe by Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston from The Prince Of daughter Rae is singing it in her school variety show and we were listening to it, so she can learn it.

Name 5 songs you listen to often or that mean something to you:

hmmnn....they'll probably mostly be Martina McBride she's my favorite and I've ben listenign to her a lot lately...
1. When God fearing Women Get the Blues---because it's just a fun hilarious song!!
2. Where Would You Be-----sometimes that's how feel about my DH and I
3. Strangers- same reason as above..
4.Concrete's a sad song makes me cry everytime..
5. a song my daughter wrote....i don't know the may not even have one but it's good and very catchy...

3 people i'm gonna pass this to and why:
Sara---because i don't think she has been yet and she comments on my blog a lot and leaves me LOTS of compliments!!

Tink--again because i don't think she has been and she has posted comments and compliments as well!

and Rebecca for the same reasons!

NON Crochet!

Just thought I'd share a little about our weekend. Every year our neighborhood hosts a Wine Tasting Party. A different neighbor hosts it at their home. This year it was at one of the neighbors down the street from us. Everyone Brings appetizers and a bottle of Wine to share. We place the bottles in paperbags and number them .Everyone tries each one and rates them 1-10. then we see who wins. Here was my contribution for appetizers. It's Salami, Cheese, Guava Paste( this makes it 'interesting") and olives. Everyone liked it. And it sure looks purty before people start pulling off the toothpicks...LOL

Both Kitties

Here is another picture of both our kitties...I've noticed Cat ownership seems to be a prerequisite for having a crochet/knit/ craft blog....LOL

Purses purses everywhere

I made these cute little handbags right before V.Day..I was hoping to get them done in time to sell them on eBay for Valentines....but I was lazy getting them 'lined' ..I'd never lined any purses I've made in the past, but wanted to with these...I hate when things poke thru....I was 'dreading" doing the linings but they turned out kinda cute and weren't too hard...I did it all by hand...I have them on eBay now....we'll see if they luck comes and goes with eBay it seems....somes weeks a bunch of my stuff sells then the next nothing...oh well...

and then this lavender one is just lined with plain lavender felt.

Then last night I went to dinner at a really nice place in Down Town Norfolk called Sterlings.. Every 3rd Wednesday the ladies in my neighborhood go out to celebrate any Birthdays that month. The Birthday girl gets to pick the restaurant. I had Broiled Scallops( my favorite) with a nice ginger Sauce and asian slaw, crab puff with cheese, and garlic mashed potatoes......then for dessert I shared a fried cheesecake.YUMM

Post V.Day

Well Brad left for San Diego today. Unfortunatley he missed his initial flight. He thought his flight was at around 6:45am he decided to doublecheck his itinerary only to find his flight was at 6:30am!! he had to reschedule...and got a flight at 2:30pm.... Everything worked out and I got him to the airport in plenty of time for his 2:30 flight....he even lucked out and was then able to get on an earlier flight. then he got to SD and the Hotel didn't have his he had to find another place to stay...luckily he was able to get a place at the again things have worked out...he'll be back Friday night( unless he misses THAT flight..LOL)anyways after i dropped him off I decided to go to Target to take advantage of the Post V. Day sales.....and got a bunch of neat stuff...I got all this and MORE for less then $150...I'm in a redecorating mood lately . most of this will be to redecorate our Bedroom and BathroomHosted by
