This is the start of a doll blanket I am making for my vintage doll cradle that dear hubby bought me for Mother's Day. I know the basics of crocheting, but didn't know how to read a pattern or create one. Thanks to my girlfriends for getting me started in actually making something. I love the pretty sherbet colors of this yarn.
Another craft I made, that I had seen on someones blog. Just textured wallpaper glued onto a can, then decorate however you wish. I used a coffee can, some ribbon, and a vintage earring. I put a jar inside to hold the flowers. I just asked for a sample, and they gave me a big piece.
Here's the cute little cradle that I received for Mother's Day. Hubby and I went antiquing, and this is what I picked out. The vintage doll is a German compostion one from 1910. It was my dear mother-in-loves.
Love the wicker design, and the rolling wheels. thanks for coming by! Be sure to visit Beverly over at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/2012/07/a-patriotic-pink-saturday-july-7-2012.html
