I love them. On ebay I spotted a seller selling doilies that her Dad made. She said he had begun as a little boy, some Aunt had taught him and he crocheted to relax. He makes one now and then...and I was fortunate enough to win this beauty. There are others out there much fancier..but this one is special. Do you know anyone who's Dad crochets? I do now...
And here it is on my coffee table. See that little green pitcher under the glass? My grandmother made and painted it many years ago. Her name, Alice Turner and the year is on the bottom in her hand writing. (and by the way I need a change here don't you think? But what?
I'll think about it tomorrow....)
I bought both of these pieces for 6.00. FOR BOTH! Both pieces are lined and of heavy brocade and velvet. Lots of detail but not too much. The large square piece has a tassel on all four corners..
I love the deep rich color of these...great for Christmas?
I had a terrible time photographing and I know you can't get the full scope. I should have cleared off my big square coffee table and maybe you could have seen it better...
The best part is when you tire of things like this...you don't lose a hundred dollars...or fifty...or whatever. It's just a few dollars...and you had fun with it..for a season or?
Lots and lots happening in my life right now and concentration is not an easy thing.
Then I stopped by to see SMB's blog and found out my problem. I HAVE SASS! It's terrible!
I've probably had it for more years than I knew...
Ok..I knew. I was just in denial! (heavy sigh...)
Love and hugs,
Ok. Because of some of the comments I have gotten I need to be more clear. SASS stands for
Short Attention Span Syndrome. If your read WORDS OF WISDOM FROM A SMART MOUTH BROAD you will know exactly what I am talking about....
