I listed a few things in my shop over the weekend. The first two are vintage.
I often find things that I love and then they just don't work for my home or I don't use them, which is the case with these flowers and potholders. I just love the scalloped edge on the latter.
And, in case you were wondering if my shop is going wholly vintage, here's a listing for something handmade (I just haven't had as much time to make things lately)....
These pompoms are upcycled and here's the listing info explaining how I get the yarn:
"I know a little group of ladies that make prayer shawls in the event that someone we know becomes ill, injured, or is in crisis. The shawls are crocheted and knitted with love and prayers. One of these ladies recently mentioned to me that the group was overflowing with remnant yarn and they didn't know what to do with it all. I told her I had the perfect application.
If you aren't interested in the tedium of pompom-making (personally, I find it meditative), here's half a dozen made from the leftover yarn of sweet, caring women. This set ranges from 1 1/2" - 2 1/4" in diameter. The wee pompoms can be used in numerous ways including: made into a garland, piled in a bowl as a centerpiece, or clustered and pinned to the wall...do however take care, pompoms are rather fragile.
As I receive more yarn and run out of the yarn I am using now, the colorway of the pompoms will evolve with each listing."
I hope your week is going well....We've had some sun which is always a nice break with the gray this time of year in the western-half of Oregon.
