Last week I showed you a picture of a sunflower potholder pattern that I said I wanted to try:
Remember that? Well, I got some colored thread and this is how it turned out!
Isn't that perfectly sweet? I love the vintage pattern! (Just wish it was easier to read and follow. I did okay with this one, just kind of guessing in the spots where it wasn't very clear, but I tried another one that I couldn't make heads or tails of... and I've been reading crochet patterns for years!)
Here's another clipping I haven't shown you yet. I came across this ad for salt and pepper shakers and did a double-take!
I have the Dutch Mills set! My mother sent them to me recently to add to my small-but-growing collection of "vintage thingies" in my kitchen. Aren't they so cute?
They aren't very big... only a couple inches tall. The ad says:
DUTCH MILLS -- All-metal, hand painted with colorful little flowers around the doors. Shown about 1/3 actual size. Boxed. Pair... 1.00.
