I just got a great book on crochet for beginners in the local library. Unlike most books for beginners this one has some really lovely projects that don't look easy but are. I made this lovely wall hanging for a nursery. Really cute teddies and pompoms. I have a second one on the way in pink...pink teddies - gotta love 'em!
Books, books, books - how I love books. I got a Kindle Reader for Christmas and it is great for reading in bed. I love to read about true crime and am reading one on the Susan Polk case at the moment. Strange stuff for sure.
and more books.
I bought Paul a book about friendship for St Valentine's Day. The text and illustrations are beautiful....
From books to boxes..well, tins really. I got this beauty in Amsterdam last November at a street market. It is my all time favourite, being very old and chippy, rusty and with a great detailed graphic.
Another fabourite is this Chinese or Japanese one ( it has characters on bottom but I can't tell whice language it is)
Another chippy one with some lovely boats on I also found in Amsterdam for 2 Euro.
And the tiniest one of all is this handmde wooden hinged one with inlaid design on top. Ebay find this one.
No matter how many I collect I never seem to run out of things to store in them!
I hope you all have a faboulous weekend...cheers Pam
