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~

Old Man Winter...current temperature 19 degrees F



I have to go out today, to work. I don't want to leave the house...This is the kind of weather where it is dangerous to inhale, I'll be wearing my trust,handy dandy crochet scarf/hood, that everybody thinks is a blanket....but I'll be toasty warm,,,this is not a scarf of decoration or novelty...I'm brining out the big gun....
for these temperatures....Made it myself , of course I did....and you can find the pattern and make one too.....

I made mine in a cream colored.
Remember the song...These are a few of my favorite things? Coming to mind today, a line from the song...

I simply remember my favorite things....and then I don't feel so bad.......



Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens

Brown paper packages tied up with strings

These are a few of my favorite things!

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple strudels

Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles

Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings

These are a few of my favorite things!

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes

Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eye lashes

Silver white winters that melt into spring

These are a few of my favorite things!

When the dog bites, when the bee stings

When I'm feeling sad,

I simply remember

my favorite things

and then I don't feeel so bad!

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens

Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens

Brown paper packages tied up with strings

These are a few of my favorite things!


What are your favorite things....this day?

I learned that song in chorus class in the 5th grade but never saw the movie until about a year ago! Bundle up and keep the cold weather at your house! I don't do cold!

My favorite things are not the cream colored ponies but the 3 different color horses I have out back!
