Little Owl Bead

My little treasure. I love owls and stumbled upon this little guy. I will come back and post an update when I decide what I'm going to do with him.

You can find this bead at I'm not affiliated with them. Just wanted to share a really cool treasure.

Update: My version of the Felt Rose Scarf

Remember back when I posted about making a felt scarf someday?  In December, I was trying to figure out what I was going to get my daughter for Christmas. I stumbled upon a SCARF and just loved it.  I really liked the colors in her tutorial but wanted to try something with a little more pizazz. Rather than using felt, I opted for the felted wool look.   I think it turned out pretty good.  The model wearing it just melts my heart.  My hubby always says... "It's not about the article of clothing.  It's about the face behind the article of clothing."  I love him...<3 !  I took several pictures, and he's right.  The scarf is a fabulous way to show off this beautiful face. You can find the tutorial at Watch me Daddy!

Thanks for the Ride!

"Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he's been robbed. The fact is that most putts don't drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to just be people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is like an old time rail journey. Delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling burst of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride."
