Father's Day

Here's a picture of my Dad, probably the first grade. See the brand new pencil in his pocket? I think I had some haircuts with my bangs not quite even...didn't we all. Dad passed in 1999.

Yard sales

We went to a couple of yard sales this morning. I bought this wire dress form for 50 cents. It's 15 inches tall. I (hubby helped) took off most of the wire around it and added a few touches of my own. I think it turned out cute. But I was really tickled to get the old crochet magazines and books. I had never seen Crochet Magic magazine. Isn't that doily pattern pretty? The magazines are from the '80s and 90's. The two oldest books were from 1947 and 1943. I got the magazines and books for a dollar each. She had LOTS more but I was able to contain myself.

More crochet

I'm still crocheting vintage potholders! Here are my latest two. I got these patterns from 1952 vintage pattern books I purchased. I also bought an old cheese dish at a yard sale and found the glass top is just perfect to cover a "stack" of potholders.
