i am a bigtime wanna be crochet girl

i found this vintage treasure yesterday at an estate sale....i was coming around a hall corner into a bedroom at the sale when i spotted it and scooped it up instantly xoxo
had to have an outside shot in the sweet sunshine xo

19 X 16 = 304 flowers = a priceless amount of hooking xo

it washed well and needs a few small repairs...i LOVE the scalloped edge

and the COLOR!!
i don't even know how to crochet but i think i need to learn...i am so drawn to it ...check this out to see one big reason WHY

       happy sunday xo pam

sara and i got  a mother / daughter  night in portland....this is a large beautiful street mural in the pearl district

sara treated us to a night here for my birthday ~ we had such a nice quiet get away ... we ate well  ... we walked the bridge loop ... we just wandered ... i am most thankful for the gift of time we gave each other ~ thank you sara xo

this flashlight on his paw  puppy was on our bed...and we had a 6th floor view of the neighborhood 
we asked for a nicer view [our first room was facing the back with large heating ducts obstructing the window] and we got a nicer room too...thank you sherry for teaching me to always ASK NICE for more  if you are not happy ~ and these robes were hanging in our closet...could not miss this photo op xoxo
