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.

Crochet Vintage Lovely

Love of Vintage 

 This is truly a vintage item. My MIL was doing some purging and ran across this, and knew it would find a home with me. It is over 50 years old. Given to her by Aunt Lucy,  I've talked about her here before, it was given to Aunt Lucy by one of her friends, Mom couldn't remember her name,
 isn't it gorgeous? It is added on to a pillow case, what handiwork, beautiful lovely stitches made by a kindred soul.

I have framed or shadow boxed all the doilies that have been made by family members..I put my great grandma's crochet hook and the tiny scissors she used. She didn't have much money and used string or whatever anybody had leftover. I treasure my "Vintage" things.
