Thinking Pink???

The Etsy Owls have decided to have a Breast Cancer Awareness promotion during the month of October. We're making pink items and are going to list them in the team shop and donate 100% of the proceeds to the Susan G Komen for the Cure Foundation.

This is a cause that is quite personal to a lot of us, myself included, so I'm really glad that we're doing this.

The scarf I chose to make was designed by Wendy of
Wendy Does Crochet. She named it the Romantic Evening Scarf and it's this fairly simple to create yet incredibly elegant design.

I used a yarn that's a lot bigger than what she used, so I was a bit worried about how my scarf would turn out, but I love it! I want to thank Wendy for letting me use it for this, and I highly recommend that you check out her patterns. You can find her on on Etsy and on Ravelry too.

Check back soon to find this scarf and lots of other great pink Owls items on sale! Feel free to post if you are interested in buying this scarf. It's not on sale yet, but it will be soon and I can list it reserved for you when it goes up. It will be $20 with free US shipping.

Have you seen Fall yet?

If you don't know this about me already, I live in a little town in East Tennessee. One of the only things really in the town is the college I recently graduated from , a small, private, baptist, liberal arts college. I decided today, like I said in my last post, to take a walk to the post office.

Last week's weather was so amazing, really cool and fall weather, so perfect that we kept our windows open and the air off for 3 days straight!! (and my boyfriend can't stand heat, so this means the weather was very cool indeed!) Today it was like 80 degrees and incredibly sunny, it sort of made me miss last week! So, I decided on my walk today to seek out signs that fall was indeed here. This slideshow highlights some of what I found on my way.

Goodbye dear friend...

I went on a walk today (a trip to the post office) and came across something that makes me very sad. :(

This was the same walk I took to go to class (I only live like a block away from school) and I came to be attached to a tree on the very edge of campus. Today while taking my usual shortcut I noticed it isn't there anymore, and instead there's this:

I'm so sad. :( It really was a beautiful tree. If you click on the title of this blog entry, it'll take you to my facebook photo album, where I took a whole semester of pictures of this tree. I know there are more photos of it floating around out there, and I'm going to hunt them down and add them to the album. I'm really upset about this, but I'm probably the only one who noticed.

People, Places, and Things...

Do you ever associate music with things that are going on in your life? I hope almost everyone does, I definitely do. I was listening to an old mixed CD today that had a few songs on it that I used to listen to passionately because I related them to life. I started thinking, how many songs like that are there?

Turns out there's a whole bunch of them, and I'm sure there are more before the ones I can remember. So I'm sharing the ones I do remember: a few that remind me of high school, and from when I spent lots of time with people I never get to see anymore and about, of course, several boys who broke my heart over the years, and so on. :)

Five points for the first person to figure out which two songs are from the soundtrack for my senior play.


I'm obsessive compulsive, so these songs are in order as they were important in my life, starting about 8 years ago and ending about 4 years ago, give or take a few years. Some of these songs are old. Some are quite old. Just in case you don't already know this about me, some of these songs are also pretty screwed up. If you blush easily, some songs in this list might make you do so.
