My grandmother was the best. I have fond memories of her crocheting afghans over the years to give as Christmas gifts. I distinctly remember the cardboard Quaker Oats canister that she used as a yarn dispenser. She taught me how to crochet and to this day I have her yarn dispenser sitting in my hobby room.meaningful gifts for mom
I’ve lived in Keller, TX for 3 years and yet just discovered that it’s an antique wonderland. Enormous multi-room antique malls are hidden behind inconspicuous storefronts all along Main Street. This could become a problem as you will see in my posts over the next few weeks. I’m discovering that I have a talent for finding all kinds of treasures deserving a loving home. My loving home. For exampleanniversary gifts for couples, ever since Jaime posted her upholstered oilcloth stool a few years ago, I’ve been on the lookout for one to re-do. Over 2 years! And last week I found 2 within 5 minutes of my house. I was good and only bought one (for $6) promising myself that if I finished the project I could return for the second stool. Apparently I’ve figured out what motivates me. Here is my first little beauty, covered in Anna Maria Horner’s new Field Study Oilcloth and ready for sticky baby fingers or bathtub splashes.
