*White Wednesday*


BECKHAM!!! 
Get your feet off my new (old) crocheted coverlets!!!




I'm participating in White Wednesday hosted by Faded Charm :) I mean...Kathleen :) 
One coverlet was made by my Uncle's mom who was Mrs. Mary Smithson Jackson of Hopkinsville, Ky. 
But I don't know which one :) 
I love them both!


These little felt baby shoes were my own :) 
Verrrry old. Ancient. Relics.


YOU are invited,
 *cordially of course* to make a wee doll quiltie to share on Sept. 30th. 
OR show one that you snagged at a shop or from a granny who actually sat down long enough to make one. 
Please take the button above and link to me, will you? 
I did just that yesterday and I can't wait to show you :)

Oh, all of these things are lovely. That picture of Beckham's paws is publishable.

Those are so pretty and how special that they were handmade!

Wonderful that you have pieces of your families' heritage. I have one my bed, too, but I know nothing of its origins!
May try to participate in White Wednesday . . . one day . . .

see you there! said...

Beautiful crocheted spreads. All I could think of was how long it would take me to make one. That's a project I'd best leave alone.

Your little shoes are too sweet.

Oh I'd love to join in, but unfortunately I have no time... next time maybe?? Love the baby shoes and coverlets. I also have crocheted pretties made for me by family members- so special, isn't it?? When my hands were OK, I looved to crochet, and I made some lovely things too. Cannot do it anymore :(

Hi Phyl, Love those old crocheted pieces..... Glad you kept them all through the years... My mother had some of them --but they disappeared somewhere years ago... Darn!!!! (Of course, back then I wasn't interested in things like that much. Silly ME!!!!)

Beautiful WHITE Wednesday....

Thanks for the birdie photo you sent... Gorgeous!!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

what a lovely blog you have and such
pretty 'whites!"

Rosie said...

Those are the prettiest paws I have ever seen...no wonder, you had to have a photo shoot...before you said "Shoo cat, Shoo"
I bet those words never even crossed your mind...I would wager, you gave the owner of those silky toes, a fine scratch behind the ears, and told her to make herself at home...right here, next to this fluffy pillow...yup...that's what I thought.
