Friday's Find #150



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

  3. Nice finds, Cecilia. I have a had time resisting textiles in general. I had a babysitter teach me to crochet and recently picked it up again to make a few eternity scarves. It's so relaxing!

  4. You brought back a long forgotten memory of my grandma teaching me to crochet when I stayed at her house one summer. Those colors are lovely together. Looking forward to seeing what you do with them.
