A few thoughts for the Day

My dottie angel books arrived in in with them was a postcard with a few "do's" on it so l thought l would share them with you as they made me smile.

  • do have high hope

  • do follow the righteous and goodly path of thriftiness

  • do think you are the most peachy perfect

  • do feel a little crafty twice a day

  • do wear your slip peeking out from below your skirt

  • do embrace all that is granny chic and give it a forever home.
l have also open another etsy store for my 'granny' blankets and thrifty fines so if you get time please pop along and have a look. It is www.etsy.com/people/GrandmasThriftyFinds
Then l found these pictures of some lovely blankets and thought l would share these as well.

Well over the last few weeks l have been moving in the 'Granny Blanket' trend and have managed to source quite a few with the intention of keeping some for the festivals and then selling some of the others, well the new issue of Molly makes has just popped on my mat and inside it has a super feature on crocheting and features a fab 'granny blanket. They seem to be making a revival.
