Fresh Inspiration

I always think of crochet as my "winter" hobby.
I have been inspired to re-think this.
This beautiful stack of crocheted blankets in fresh summery colors
makes me want to break out my crochet hooks
and make a visit to the yarn store.

What?!! No before pics?

I rarely go into an antique/vintage/thrift store looking for something to make over. I stop in these little stores to look for a treasure - something different and unique. I am also a little bit of a collector. I  love maps, colored glass vases, oval platters and serving dishes, and vintage pyrex. Useful, practical things. Many times I bring something home and think, I would like this so much better if it was yellow (or orange, or pink, or...).  My husband, always quick with the spray paint, gets it done for me. I don't always remember to take a before picture, so here is a few photos of the afters!
