A Look Back............

Happy 4th of July my friends... Hope you are all enjoying your long holiday weekend so far.

It's very hot here in Minnesota today with a current temp of 90 with lots of sunshine and humidity. Got too hot being outside so I came indoors to cool off a bit, and realizing it's been quite a while since I last posted, I thought I would stop in to say hello and let you know that yes, I still am here. Haven't given up on blogging. Just being really lazy about it to be honest.

No red, white and blue to share today, so I thought that instead of posting something in those colors, I'd take a look back in my photo archives and pull out a few of my favorite photos to re-share with you. Of course, those would be some pictures showing my favorite colors of pink, pale greens, blues and yellows.

First up is one showing just a portion of my crocheted potholder collection.....

Next is a lovely china gravy boat with the prettiest of floral patterns set against a small patchwork table topper.....

Some gorgeous fabric pincushions that I purchased on Etsy some time ago......

And some of the sweetest fabric covered eggs also purchased on Etsy....

Last, but not least, a small collection of pastel flower pots.

Hope you enjoyed seeming some of my favorite things, whether it be for the second time, or maybe even the first.

Take care, be safe and enjoy the rest of your weekend!!!

Looks like you have quite a few of those old cotton tablecloths...I love them, but they are becoming harder and harder to find at decent prices. Not long ago I found 3 at Red, White and Blue Thrift for 3.95 each. I to this day cannot explain why, but I left the store with only one of them. When I came to my senses later that night, I ran back the next day, and the other 2 were gone.

My question for you...do those vintage crochet potholders really protect you from the hot pans? They are so pretty, but I never buy them because they just don't look like they would work well. Since I don't buy things I don't or can't use, I pass them up. What is your opinion?
