Crochet Snowflakes

A few weeks ago, trees outside my condo building were being trimmed. I instantly ran over and asked the workers if I could have a branch or two. Yes, they looked at me like I was some crazy woman getting excited over broken tree branches. I did not really have a chance to pick what I wanted so I had to take what they threw into my arms. And I walked away quickly before they changed their minds!

Around christmas time at the flea market, I found these lovely crocheted snowflakes that have already been perfectly starched. And I added a few stray strands of glass beads for some sparkle. I never did have a christmas tree this past year, so now I have a winter tree (there is still lots of snow here!) that greets me in my hallway as I come through my front door.

Vintage Display Case

I must admit that I have not been in a writing mood yet this year. I think I have lost my voice. Hopefully it is only temporary and I will find my way back. Or maybe I feel like there is a black void and I am not sure who is out there reading this, if at all.

For those of you who do visit my blog, I am so very grateful for your interest. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! If you can leave me a comment letting me know that you are out there, I would so gratefully appreciate it!

For now, I am sharing with you a composition I created in a vintage glass display case many months ago. I am really loving the earthy tones from nature as well as the patina of old objects. I usually don't like brass but the binoculars have aged wonderfully. Until next time...
