I tell you, I see people put up floating shelves on HGTV all the time, and at this point, I think they're nuts. The way these things go up, they're never really solid, even on a more solid wall than apartment drywall. But whatever, I guess they're not getting bumped by my teenage boys all the time.............
..........anyway, I stuck some brackets under the shelf, and now it looks better than I thought it would. I thought I would have to live with something that was not really what I wanted, but that I need. In fact, I think it looks good, and now I just need to grab a few more things, and put more thought into the merchandising.
The Granny Stripe Blanket is coming right along. Just need to add the last row of the blue and the border, which I have now chosen. It should be done this week, hopefully. Particularly since I have Tuesday and Wednesday off, and plan to spend it crocheting..........
If I could find a mouse pad, all would be right in my world. Seems those things are harder to find now, used to see them all the time..............
Have a great day, y'all.

I gotta say, I was totally bowled over by the season finale of The Mentalist. As Patrick was with Red John, I was thinking "Don't do it. I know, you have to. But don't. Just don't. He ain't worth it. But I understand." Then he did, and I was floored. Of course, him going back to finish his tea, and paying for it......... outstanding.
Simon Baker seriously deserves an Emmy for this show. The way he captures the emotion, I just wanna hug him.
The only problem I have with the ending is that this really seemed like a great way to end the series. And I so don't want them to end the series. Because I love this show. Does anybody know it it's on the schedule for next fall? Because what are they gonna do, have him in prison? And the whole Grigsby/Van Pelt thing, too...... yeesh.
Wow. Seriously. Wow

.....so I couldn't take pictures of my pretty pillows and share them with y'all. The weather is too overcast, and the pillows are kinda white (they're made of Red Heart SS in Aran) so I couldn't get a shot that shows them off nicely. And they really did turn out very nicely, I'm kinda proud of them, so I want to show them at their best, you know. ............. So today, you just get this lil potholder. It's kinda cute, I don't think I did a good job with it, but it gives me some ideas for some other lil potholders I'd like to make.... these are made with Sugar and Cream naturals - that nice Chocolate Toast (really, it's called Terra Firma, but I think Chocolate Toast is more apt) and the white is called Sonoma Print. I think it's pretty, too. I think a nice spa set would be really cool in that Sonoma Print, I may have to make that...............
Anyway, we really needed the rain, and at that, I'm not sure we got enough, but the storm was kinda wicked. Not that we got the righteous part, that was mostly Austin proper....... ah well.
Y'all have a wonderful day!
