*New design
Ruffles-n-Puffs crochet cowl for kids
Measures approx.5×20″
Designed to fit children between the ages of 3-10. Wear responsibly & with caution on the littles as anything around the neck can indeed become a choking hazard.
Worked in soft suede mustard cotton & drapes beautifully.
This lovely little cowl will be available for purchase via my Etsy shop within the next couple of days….hopefully! Fingers crossed! Life is hectic at the moment!

I plan to jot down the pattern to share here on my blog but I just need to find the time to do that! Keep your eyes on this blog for the free pattern! Coming soon…….

“Tell us about your first job. Did you love it or was it horrendous”

From the time I was about 8 years old into my early teens I spent most of my weekend nights babysitting for my  neighborhood children.   I was a very popular babysitter as I grew up in a family of  7 kids…all potential babysitters in the eyes of my neighbors.   I still have contact and relationships with some of the kids I sat for.  It’s wonderful to hear  that I have made a difference in their lives.

My very first ‘real’ job was basically the same thing only I got to work in my bikini, picnic poolside every day, swim & lounge around all summer…… AND  got paid for it!!!   🙂  I LOVED my first  job!  My employers were very kind and extremely generous.  They compensated me above and beyond my imagination at that time.  I was living the life I tell ya!

My job title was that of a nanny/referee/life guard/taxi driver/nurse/cook/maid…. basically a glorified babysitter or otherwise known as a MOM! lol

For three (short) wonderful years of my teenage  life, all summer long…I cared for 2 very well-behaved little adorables  at their family private swim club.

While the kiddies  took swim lessons nanny  got to  lounge by the pool basking in the glorious sunlight taking periodic dips in the refreshing pool    🙂

[ Tell us about your typical day. Or maybe do a photo diary of what you are doing on the hour every hour for 12 hours. Or you could sum up what you did today ]

At the risk of boring you all to tears I have decided to change the rules for this post a bit & not list all the mundane details of my very boring day.  (I would not have it any other way….at my age boring is really all that I  can hope for!)  ….instead, I thought I would   share a photo of the most important aspects/people/art  of my everyday life. (Including family who prefer to remain anonymous & are not ready to make  a blog appearance….they’ll come  around eventually )
