As you may know, my favorite place to craft is in my sunroom and I have been showing you corners of my sunroom in several of my last posts. Here is a picture of my wicker chair (from a garage sale) with the very pretty new pillow I got at a flea market on my birthday. Looks like a lovely spot doesn’t it? Well, the thermometer in my sunroom says it is 112 degrees, but I am sure the heat index is higher. I am unable to enjoy my little sunroom this week.
Spencer keeps cool by laying on the vent. I think that’s pretty smart.
I have been collecting Hallmark Christmas ornaments since the late 1970’s. I love them dearly and enjoy when family and friends add to my collection every year. One of my favorite series is the Frosty Friends series that started in 1980. The first one I got was in 1983 and have most of them ever since. I did manage to find a 1982, but the first in the series, 1980’s A Cool Yule, is one of the rarest of all and worth, according to the collector guide, $600. Every year when my BFF, Susan helps decorate our tree I always point out that I have almost all of them but the very first one. ( A little hinting never hurts. ) Well, you remember the shocked look on my face in last Tuesday’s post of me opening a birthday present? Guess what was in that box?
Yep, she did it! Got on ebay and found a good (I sincerely hope) deal on one that was in good shape, just no box. She is a good friend.
This is a picture of our collection of little baby planters. We like to use them to hold craft supplies and they just look so cute. We love the pastel colors and the ’vintage-ness’ of them.
I have been working on some granny square projects lately. I made this granny square afghan in the early 1990’s thinking that it would be the last one I ever made. I thought at that time I would never have that much left over yarn again. What was I thinking?
I am ‘into’ them again. The potholders I made for our etsy is what started it and now I’m granny crazy.
I’m working on a doll blanket in pretty, vintagie colors.
Gosh, I’ve met so many wonderful ladies in blogland this last week, I am having a hard time recommending just one. I guess because she posts so often and is really a go –getter, I am going to recommend Bittersweet and the Little Soap Company. Jill is such a sweet lady. Love her spirit.
I like to collect quotes. Here is one that suits us all I think: A little of what you fancy does you good. - Marie Lloyd.
Wishing you much happiness! Twyla
