Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! Whenever I see crochet hooks and thread, I am reminded of my dear maternal grandmother, Mo-maw. She was a talented seamstress and taught me to crochet as young girl. As Iong as I can remember, an assortment of crochet thread, hooks, buttons and sewing notions were always within reach in her home. When I came across a ziplock bag filled with this thread, the hook was tucked inside just as it is pictured, with a few rows already "worked," as Mo-maw would say, a further sweet reminder of days past...
I also found the collapsible egg basket and together they make a sweet display. The basket got a light spray of white paint and remember these buttons? The vignette provided the perfect way to show off that gorgeous bluebird graphic.
Even the table was a previous find from a few years ago, that received a thrifty transformation.
On to the rest of this week's finds! Still another bag of crochet thread--aren't the colors gorgeous? I'm pondering a repurposed project for these--not a snowman this time, but a similar craft.
Isn't it funny when your finds seem to have their own theme? From crochet thread to a pretty finished doily. Again, I love the colors! Available
For my cat loving friends, I found a cutie! A whimsical hand painted muslin calico: Available
What a blast from the past! I couldn't resist this retro tote, the inside is pristine! Available
Until next time, happy hunting!
