Makeover Monday: 1/17

As soon as I saw it hanging at the thrift store, I knew this beautifully detailed lavender flannel receiving blanket would be going home with me.
~*~Before I ever began crocheting receiving blankets into stars, I made them into little bowls. Sometimes it's worth a look back at your sold items to see what you might want to add to your shelves. The design creates a nicely textured piece, and if you look closely at the center of the bowl, you can still see some of those pretty swirls.
Happy Monday! Are you Americans enjoying your MLK holiday today? It has been a very looooong weekend here, and I am looking forward to getting back into our usual routine tomorrow. I have a rug to make that I have been putting off- not because I don't want to make it, but because the initial planning can be very time-consuming and daunting. I WILL get going on that ... TODAY.

Unique flannel for a baby and a lovely little bowl once again.

I especially LOVE those cute vintage cards posted on Sunday. Too bad we can't go thrifting together; we would have a blast! I'm going to try that thriftfinder--see what I'm missing!
