More bits and pieces...

New in the Shop:

Okay, I promised a pic of one of my newest creations. Check out this red, white and blue sailor-style onesie for your patriotic babes! I think it would be absolutely great for the 4th of July picnic!!

It is now available in my shop.

By the way, there are even stars on the backside, too!!

And now, for the Bits'n'Pieces from the worldwide news that have caught my eye lately:

Chocolate covered bacon?!?!?

I couldn’t believe my eyes! I thought I’d tried dipping everything possible in chocolate but this was a new concept to me. But I am salivating at the idea of that crisp, salty bacon dipped in rich dark chocolate -- yummy!!! (At least I think it will be.) Want to check it out? Visit Luca Chocolate's site and check out their box set of chocolate bacon items that includes bacon caramels and bourbon and black pepper truffles along with the dipped bacon.


I’m all for the safety and love of pets but I do believe PETA has gone way too far in their complaints about President Obama killing that pesky fly. At first, I thought the new story was simply a spoof but they really are outraged that he took that’s fly’s life so lightly! Come on now, flies are one of the biggest carriers of disease and bacteria and, to the best of my knowledge, are more a health hazard than a help of any sort. In case they’re looking for more battles, I also kill ants and roaches. (Oh, and I eat meat, too!)


While we’re on the subject of ridiculous, can you believe that young girl who “woke up” with too many stars tattooed to her face? Get real!! I don’t have any tats, but I have stuck myself with literally thousands of needles in my many years of sewing. There is no way, she could have slept through that procedure unless she was totally drugged - like almost to a comatose state!!! I believe it was one of those things that seemed like a good idea at the time and didn’t come out the way she pictured it in her mind. I actually feel sorry for the tattoo artist that’s getting all the blame. He had a reputable business and I doubt he would have risked it for this particular bit of publicity.


And then there’s the guy who has been dressing as a woman to impersonate his dead mother for six years, just to cash her Social Security checks!!

Who needs to read novels for entertainment? Just pick up a newspaper!

Your little sailor suit is so adorable! I had photos of both my boys in sailor suits when they were babies. Nothing like a cutie in a sailor suit...big or small ;)

Crazy people in the news. I'm glad they put an end to the guy who was ripping off Social Security. Have a great weekend. ~Natalie
