I am taking a page from Attic24 today - she posted some amazing inspiration today and I just have to share. If you haven't checked out Lucy's blog yet, you really should - tons of lovely crochet and color inspiration!!
Today she posted some lovely granny chic photos she found in a Flickr group called aptly Granny Chic. I am so in love with this collection of photos. Loads of crocheted potholders, pillows, throws and more mixed with lifestyle photos that mix the old and new together. This style reminds me so much of my friend Renee and I inspire to add more vintage to my home. Actually, I have a lot of vintage pieces from my Gram and that I have collected over the years, I just need to display more of them (adding to my to do list... for after the Holidays).
In her post, Lucy also linked to a fun crochet star tutorial on The Royal Sisters blog. I was so inspired that I grabbed some cotton yarn and my crochet hook moments after I got home from work. The stars are so quick and easy to crochet and I have visions of crocheted star garland hanging from the mantel or a tree full of crochet stars at Christmas. I chose a white, red and robins egg blue color scheme. I thought it might look slightly Christmas-y without being red and green Christmas-y. After the fact I looked through my mail and saw that it matched the December issue of Living. Guess I have good taste - hehe :)
