Do Your Crochet? Free Vintage Crochet Patterns Collars and Yokes

All homecrafts that
elude me.
My sewing is still done
by hand (no machines for this gal)
I remember my mother
and her sisters pouring over patterns
They made all our baby clothes
and blankets
Later sweaters and hats
mittens and slippers.
I treasure those wonderful hand
made gifts.
This hat pattern brings to mind
the bed caps we have from my
Great Grandmothers trunks.
It used to give my sister and I giggles
when we would dress up.
Just think...Wearing hats to bed.
How silly.

I have found a wonderful old pattern magazine
full of crochet patterns for
yokes and collars
Over the last two days
I have been posting them over on my other
So...if you crochet..or tat
come over and get some wonderful
I will post a few more here also.
I really love that these
are printed in blue on a
white background
not black.

Vintage Papers For Glue Book Journaling And Scrapbooking

This morning I would love to share
with you some new vintage items
that have been added to my Etsy store.

Vintage Papers that are blank
no printing..sometimes there
may be a little writing on them
Such as a date..or a name..
maybe a note about a favorite poem
or measurements...
I leave those on the pages

I also have some lovely book
boards for you. 
These make beautiful backgrounds
for collages and other
altered art projects...

And...If you like a bit of color or maybe
some pretty edges...
There are hand dyed vintage papers
also...These have been dyed with acid free
dyes and inks.

These all make wonderful backgrounds
and accent pieces for your
Vintage Altered Art Assemblages.

Also in the store...Vintage music paper,
A great set of vintage licence plate envelopes
with the most amazing USA Stamps
still on them.
Old bank books with
empty pages...

Here is my  link

The above picture shows you some of the
ways I have been printing on these
divine antique papers..They make it
thru the printer just fine..and the colors
are great.

Have a wonderful Sunday!!
