smitten by a business card. . .




all the beautiful things I buy to sell leave a smile on my face,


some have monetary value, some intrinsic value,
and some have value to those who appreciate them
but are discarded by those who may not.


Two little business cards, in their original envelope,
an advertising gimmick of their day. . .


A joy to discover twixt pages of a book

keeping warm






Roger, the garden gnome grows a fine cloak of moss to keep warm




as does Martin (I think he's in there somewhere!)





This little Iris snuggles up to the chimney-breast on the outside wall,
pretends she's a hothouse flower and blooms away.


 I snuggle up to the woodburner on the inside wall and 
refuse to bloom until summer!

brave little snowdrop!





the earth around its tiny bulb has been
clean washed away by all the rain,
but still the brave little snowdrop
bursts into bud to cheer
our January days. . .


thank-you, little snowdrop

more squares



 
Here's the second batch of crochet squares for my sampler blanket.
I'm loving the beautiful yarns friends gave me for Christmas-
the purple is baby alpaca, the multicolour is like fine ribbon
 and the pink is pure cashmere,
lucky lucky me!
 
I was wondering should I crochet some plain coloured squares
to go amongst amongst the patterns?
what do you think?
