Yarn, Yarn, Yarn

Recently I won a yarn giveaway over at Poppies and Milk. I just received the box, and look at all of the beautiful yarn. Those tweedy purples made my heart skip a beat. My girls were in love with all these gorgeous pinks. The babe had a particular fondness for that extra soft and fluffy ball of white. You can see her moving in again. Here are some more bright, fun colours. I have a few ideas for a few of the different colours, but I am going to have some real fun deciding what to do with it all. Good thing I’ll be stuck in the car for quite a while here in a couple of weeks, it’ll be perfect for having some time to crochet.

Espresso Cups and A Wool Blanket

espresso cups I found these adorable espresso cups in this little bowl at my local thrift store. They cost 50 cents for the whole lot and I scooped them up immediately. I won’t be using them for espresso, but I do know three children who would love to have a just-their-size mug of hot chocolate on a chilly winter day. pink wool blanket I have been keeping my eye out for wool blankets whenever I visit a thrift store. On a day outing to Estes Park, I stopped in at their little community thrift store and waiting just for me on the blanket rack was a delicious pink Pendleton wool blanket. Pendleton started in 1909 and my mom remembers my great grandmother wearing pendleton suits. How perfect. This will be sure to keep us warm, and at just $3 it was a fantastic bargain.
