An Accomplishment




I wanted to share my very first completed throw blanket that I finished within 3 weeks and the best part I didn't have to buy more yarn, I just used up all the ones that have been left behind from other projects. The instructions were found here and I just love how pretty it looks once done. I am unsure about the doily because it's a little wonky but I guess it's okay. I can't wait to make more to give to love ones.

Sweetness




I just love my jar full of sweet treats. I found a set of the jars with their rack but a little boy that I know broke 2 of them plus the rack so now I am stuck with this one jar. It looks great displaying all the little cupcake toppers I found this weekend in my junk drawers. Makes me want to bake some cupcakes but will have to pass until it cools a bit.

Very.....Umm Tacky

I just love my latest vintage finds. They are a little on the tacky side but I couldn't resist these cute spanish dancers.

Deer Me

My newest addition to my deery collection, an adorable pair of vintage mod Eames era fawns. Aren't they cute? I can't stop photographing these two.

Sorry for the lacks of entries, for some reason this year has been a downhill slump with no motivation or energy, affecting every aspect of my life and this heat isn't helping much especially since the a/c broke this week. A replacement piece has been ordered and hopefully it will be up and running by the end of this week. fingers crossed.
I have been crocheting at night to release my stress and have finished one blanket finally and started another one (pictured above) but I still have 2 more blankets that need to be finished. It really feels good to see a completed project and I can't wait to work on the rest before starting anymore. I thought I was going to use this blog to help me finish my projects and I was doing so well but as always life gets in the way. I need to continue and document my projects once again and hopefully commit this time, so here is my waterlily afghan which will include 42 squares with 6 completed and out of the way and 36 more to go. Timeline is undetermined at the moment but it took me 1 week to finish 6 so I am calculating about 7 weeks. Oh, that is a long time. Wish me luck...
