I have so many crochet hooks that I use two cases to hold them all. The solid blue one was a gift from Kat & Fiona several years ago. I can’t remember how I kept track of my hooks before they gave me the case, but it worked so well that I found myself a second one to hold the overflow. And yes, I really do use all those different sizes.
I recently discovered the Tulip line of crochet hooks, which have a foam comfort grip. They are extremely helpful in reducing hand fatigue when working on large projects. I only own a couple of these hooks, but plan to acquire more in different sizes.
I picked these flowers from my gardens Tuesday, before a spring storm barreled through the area. The bouquet has yellow snapdragons, two varieties of dianthus, a geranium blossom and a painted daisy (I think!).
It’s this Thursday’s Treasure because little bouquets of garden flowers like this one remind me of my grandmother, Mabel Austin Gibson. She always had little vases of seasonal flowers around her house.
For about the same price as a cup of Starbucks sweetness I can have colorful flowers to brighten my day. An added bonus is that the flowers usually last a week to ten days, much longer than a cup of Starbucks! So pretty.
What do you do to add beauty to your days?
**Thursday’s Treasures highlights the small things that make my life a good life. It may be an item, it might be a book, it could be a song; whatever it is, it makes me smile and is therefore worth treasuring.
