Vintage Crochet Lines

About Me

My photo
I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

Take your needle my child and
work at your pattern it will come out a
rose by and by. Life is like
stitch at a time taken patiently.

A chilling thought....

Another one of my fave's .....he is so cute...I love snowmen.. 
It seems every year around this time, this little guy finds his way to my blog...and while it would be
good to jump into this head first on a day like would only be for a brief moment, and then
I would be looking for warmth again...So, let us imagine that we have all just went sledding with our
bathing suits on...what a hoot....and then come home from blog land and enjoy your garden,
only in blogland is this possible....
the best of both worlds....

Oh Ethel, I'm gonna be honest. I'm really dreading this day! We don't have air conditioning, and I'm even more worried about the animals, than I am for myself! So far I've just re-set all the window fans to blow OUT, and I've double stocked up on the ice cubes, and I'm HOPING we'll get to go for a swim later. We did yesterday, as Dear Daughter has a big in-ground pool at her apartment complex, and it was WONDERFUL!!! In the meantime, no baking, no house-cleaning.. I'm guessing the only comfortable thing to do will be to sit smack in front of a fan, either reading or crocheting... Love that snowman! Hope you're keeping cool and comfortable, and that you can still enjoy your day! ~Lucy

I love your chilly Willy ;-) He's adorable and looking at the picture reminds me of my childhood winters in Germany. Love it!

I actually watched a couple of Christmas movies the other day -I do that sometimes to remind me that it won't always be this hot and let's face it, people will complain about the heat as much as the just have to roll with it and enjoy every single day no matter what. I try to be thankful every day for the gift of being alive. Sad that it took me this long to appreciate my life, but I suppose as you age, life gets shorter and therefore more precious! When you're young you live forever, right?

Have a great week!
Doris and the Gizz ;-)
