Men!! #Handmade #Folksy

That title got you didn`t it? You thought I had added pics of yummy guys... come on admit it.... you really did!! At this point I am sitting here sniggering to myself, glad that no one can see me. My lot already think I`m eccentric....
Anyway, no, it`s not pics of men, but what you can get for the mn in your life. Let`s face it, they are notoriously hard to buy for whether it`s a big pressie, something smaller or a stocking filler. That just reminded me that I have seen something that would be a funny guy gift, will have to see if I can find it.
I asked on the forum if anyone had gifts for men and got a few, but of course not all the sellers go on the forums. It`s just putting the right words into the search box, will have to try that again.
Aha!! Managed to find a lovely diverse collection for you and there were more I could have added too. Which means that I can do more blogs with male gift ideas to make your life easier. Yay!!
The hat I told you was coming along nicely that I was pleased with.... well it all came out again, not happy after all. It was so nearly finished as well, but it just wasn`t quite right. I decided to add in another yarn and started another hat which is all but finished now. fingers crossed that I am happy with that. Have also started another hat in a black sparkly yarn which is coming along nicely. An idea for another scarf is rearing it`s head now, probably because I have made several hats in a row.
The two eldest grandchildren popped in yesterday afternoon, my grandaughter to be my ironing fairy and grandson to watch as he is hoping to take over the job as soon as my grandaughter starts her real world job.
He has had his eye on taking over for a while, hoping that each job she applied for would be the one. Trouble is there aren`t that many jobs they can do at 14yrs old. But with great persistance she has landed one much to the delight of both of them.
We went for tea at my daughters and it was a lovely meal. I made an apple, raspberry and blueberry crumble to take for dessert.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

Lot`s of goodies for the men,
yippee there`s more than ten.
Lot`s of choice for your man,
he might become a craft fan.
How about a lovely silk tie,
so much choice, it`ll make you sigh.
A T-shirt of great style
that`s bound to make him smile.
A bracelet, cufflinks or a belt buckle,
something to delight and make him chuckle.
A bag to carry important papers
or stuff when he`s on his capers.
A scarf, a tie or a funky clock,
all gifts that really rock.
A keyring, box or tax holder,
maybe you seek something bolder.
A card wallet or perhaps a pen
for those certain times when
he needs to write and look good
as someone special always should.
A stunning case for his phone
will put him right in the zone.
A memory stick in a wood bolt,
so amazing I`ve called a halt.
Hope you find what you seek
when in each shop you have a peek!
