Gerbera Love!

 During the winter months here in South Texas, my Gerberas really shine! 
 I think I will be looking for more to add to my small but growing collection.
They make me so happy!
Y'all come back!

Hooked on Crochet!

 This is my first crocheted blanket. The pattern is called Blackberry Salad. I found it on Ravelry. I really want to make it larger, but Hobby Lobby is currently out of several of the colors.
 So, while I am waiting on the needed colors for the Blackberry Salad blanket, I started another project. This pattern is the Ripple pattern posted on Ravelry by Lucy of Attic 24.
I'm not sure why the order of my photos was changed, but I am too lazy to bother starting over!
Back to the new Ripple blanket project. These are the colors that I am using. I am using "I Love this Yarn" from Hobby Lobby for both blankets. 
Y'all Come Back,

Vintage ice chest

Look what I found. It was in my grandparents workshop! It was covered in dust and grime. I can't believe the tray and can/bottle opener were still inside! Ha Ha, I just noticed that Rascal is checking it out in the photo above.
The only drawback is that it is a bit heavy, even while empty! It is a Therm-a-Chest made by Knapp Monarch Company of St. Louis Missouri. I'm thinking it would best be used to ice down drinks here at home. What do y'all think?
