Hi!!!  Before I get into the Bluebonnets, I wanted to tell you about the Twitter thing.
I think I mentioned briefly that I was giving in and joining twitter again.  I still have my rubymtnbeads account there, but I decided to join as Amy___Nicole to help keep everything for my business under the same name....

The catalyst for getting me back on twitter was my noticing (no telling how long it had been there) on Etsy that you can Facebook "like" or Tweet an item that you like, or to promote your own work.  

I thought that was super cool and wanted to play too!!!

I am enjoying my foray into twitter a lot more this time.  I'm not sure why.  I guess because I have the ipad now, and it is much easier to follow along where I left off before.  And EVERYONE is on twitter.  

I've been following Anthony Bourdain, (love his show!) and all sorts of cool peeps, but I really like following Tony.  He tweets the cool stuff he's doing, pics of what he's eating, his regular smart ass comments.....  I don't ever want to find out that it's not him tweeting and just some intern that follows him around.  So don't burst my bubble!  I don't want to know!

Anywho...since I have decided to tweetildy tweet  tweet on twitter, I've decided that it is the place for me on line to just post any old thing that comes to my mind and I happen to be near my ipad to post it.  Mostly what I'm doing, or making, or contemplating making...just stuff.  More of an open mic instead of a thought out post.  I guess it's really just more of me sharing what ever it is I'm doing than anywhere else on line.

So follow me!  And I'll follow you...

And since posts without pictures are boring...I wanted to share these...

Sisters! :)  (I love these girls sooooo much!)

 Bluebonnets are Texas' state flower.  They grow wild in the spring all over the state, and particularly along highways.  They are so pretty when you are driving along and see a sea of blue.
Texas is a proud state, and we are proud of our bluebonnets.  And I can see why.  Growing up in Nevada, our state "flower" was the sage brush.  Yeah, not so pretty.
It's the desert!  What do you expect? :p
And I don't know what this is.  If anyone knows, please tell me!  My husband was taking his picture, and thought it was a hummingbird, but I don't think so...Doesn't it look like some kind of moth?


  1. Beautiful Bluebonnet pictures! The critter in the last photo looks like a hummingbird moth. I did a Google search and found a couple of images that look a lot like the one in your photo.

    Have a great day!

  2. Well, whatever it is it's kind of creepy. I think I watched Silence of the Lambs one too many times when I was younger!

    Glad you had such a great visit with your mom and sister. Looks like everyone was having a great time! And as for twitter- I knew I needed to be there too, but I'm finding it kind of complicated to keep up with! I saw one of Anthony's tweets- love his show, but I guess I need to follow him:)

  3. Hi Amy,

    It looks like a bumble bee or teddy bear moth.

    You're blue bonnets are lovely but the scent of sage can't be beat!
