Sweet Ruffle Crochet


I saw this crocheted bag at the Red Heart site and knew I had to share it with you? Isn’t it sweet? The pattern looks easy to follow and you could easily make this in a variety of colors to match your wardrobe or mood. I have several crochet projects going on right now but if I ever get the chance to make this, I’ll post a photo of the finished product.


Pink and Red Christmas

Mishmash Monday

Today was a banner day for me. I was so flattered today to hear that I am finally in style! I was wearing a bright red cardigan over my black top with an embroidered Christmas tree on the front. My hot pink purse definitely clashed a bit with it, kind of ruining my look — so I thought — but I really hate changing purses so hot pink it is!

Rick and I had just finished breakfast and I was paying the cashier when she told me how much she liked my pink purse with my red sweater. I was so shocked that all I could do was stare at her with my mouth hanging open. She went on to state that hot pink and red are a very popular color combination this Christmas.

Um, what? Where exactly have I been hiding that I haven’t noticed this phenomenon? As a “pink girl,” it is almost unforgivable that I could slide so far into the Christmas season without being aware of this vital fashion information. Who knew I could be fashionable without even trying?
