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.


The Guardian Angel

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


~Oliver Wendell Holmes 1867~

Simply enjoying & pondering.....and listen to those wind chimes:)

It is a beautiful 50 degrees here today in NE Ohio, windy...bringing some change in. But for now I linger a moment looking at the bright blue sky and sunshine, been thinking  about herbs of late...for the garden..I'm new at the herbs.  I have some lavender started from seeds which didn't get  far last year, they just barely sprouted. I found a lovely lavender plant and put that in the ground hoping it will come back this year. I enjoyed the basil and cilantro from last year...so I will do those again..and I've ordered a few books from the library about how to dry herbs, and herb gardens. What about Lemon Verbena..? I like the sound of that name, I have never smelled this herb. I'm hoping that I can find it the nursery in the spring...I wonder....would I be able to find seeds?
I have bread rising in the oven...I found a new recipe over at http://michelleslittlepieceofheaven.blogspot.com/2012/01/bakery-bread-secrets.html
giving it a trial today... I've much to do around the old homestead today, I worked the last 3 days...I miss my homestead and my hook moving... Have a delightful day...
I suppose a good part of all of you do herbs...and will posting about them soon, looking forward to gardening tips and treasures....
I found a new blog....I have not gotten a chance to read everything...looks like much to choose from...
stop by...here http://oldtips.blogspot.com/

I've opened up a few windows, I like breezy days...one of my favorite things...it is 52. Letting the germs blow right on out the window, and bringing in fresh air.  When I turn the oven on to bake the bread....
windows closed...I want to keep that smell inside....for a little while.
