My House is Crochet Mad



pictures by me

Today my house has gone a little crochet mad. Last week I picked up these 3 items at an op shop for 50c, 20c and $5 respectively (gee I love the country town church shops). So today I couldn't help but splash them around the place. It has already brightened my day. Hope it does the same for you.

    How lovely and what a fantastic buy! I can't wait until it cools down here and I can curl up with crochet blanket.

    Thank you so much for your lovely comment sweet friend, it means more to me than you can know!

  9. They're lovely. I just received an old blanket my grandmother crocheted years ago - my Mom found it in a box and sent it to me. What a treasure. :)

  10. Simone,

    Looks like you found some colorful treasures. There are some amazing crochet craftspeople in Oz. I love the country op shops too.

  14. It's so interesting to me, Simone, how you manage to use primary colors right alongside the serene, pale beachy tones... & it all works. I've wondered if it's the light in your home. Or perhaps you just have a talent for combining unexpected colors in pleasing ways?

    Beautiful day,
