VTT - Hotpads and a Great Giveaway!
My new friend and kindred spirit, Susan, over at Not Quite June Cleaver has posted about this wonderful giveaway at Apron Memories Blog. I am looking forward to your entry Susan! Here is mine which happens to also qualify for my Vintage Thingies Thursday post. I love it when things like that happen.
I love vintage crocheted hot pads. I own nearly a dozen or so now and am always on the look out for more. I have a couple hanging on the wall in my kitchen. I love the little dresses. So girly and just as they should be.
Some remind me of snowflakes. I am quite fond of snowflakes, except when Mother Nature pampers me with a week of warm tennis weather and then pulls back the Spring curtain for a snow storm – I will update you on Saturday, but tonight I am having a bit of sinus trouble, so snow may really be on the way. The day is gloomy as evidenced by the pictures - sorry.
I use my hot pads, but miss them when they are put away. Instead of the traditional kitchen valances on my kitchen windows, I have placed these lacey delights in the top panes. They look great inside and out.
I was hoping to find some vintage embroidered towels to create the café portion of the curtains, but winning this great giveaway might just supply me with the inspiration that I need to re-create my own. Check it out...
Also, do not forget to stop by and visit Suzanne at Colorado Lady for Vintage Thingies Thursday.
