Well, mostly photos. I can never resist a few words. 🙂
A few touches for the screened porch – the lantern a tag sale item, the flower pot an IKEA special.
Then there was knitting:
I made these 5 hats in a couple of days – 4 side button hats, one Alpine Topper. The Alpine still needs to be blocked to stop that curling edge.
Those side button hats need buttons, right? I have been scouring yard sales to find some that are big enough, unique and special at reasonable prices. I found these this summer:
Then, one day I was in a local artisan collective shop, killing time, and I found these babies. They are made by a young woman who owns a quarry nearby. She makes these stone buttons from the local granite, and the beach stones and tumbled china ones as well. And the shell – I love that shell! They are VERY reasonably priced, considering just how unique they are, so I bought several, and expect I will get more someday. Maybe today…
Now, how to choose?
This is just too much fun, but I hope they sell! I don’t really need ALL of these hats. 🙂
