Objects of my affection - a Tuesday Theme - Week 2

Lately I've been thinking that since I started this blog I have been looking very judgementally  (and rightly so) around the house for things that I can declutter.  All a bit negative.

As a bit of light relief, I thought I might make Tuesday a day to appreciate the things that I do enjoy having around me.  Not because of $$ value, but just because they are special to me for whatever reason.

Please join in - I apologise in advance if this is a bit twee or it has all been done before.

This week inspite of - or maybe just to spite the hot weather - I thought I would show off my lovely crochet granny blanket.

No I didn't make it (can knit but not crochet).  Actually I bought it a few years ago when we were on holidays mid-north NSW at a show.  I just love it.  It is so beautifully made with the raised flowers, very warm and bright.  

Luckily it's a bit cooler here today.  I don't think I could have even touched this yesterday!!

So that is my object of affection today - what's yours?

cheers Wendy

Oh no, it's not twee at all, I think it's a great idea to show off the things that you love and are not parting with!

That blanket really is a special one, those raised flowers are really quite a lovely feature. When do you use it? It looks like a snuggle in front of the fire one to me!

Nelly - I'm sure you do - I've seen your blog.
Ali - It is lovely and looking forward to winter already. Yes we have a fire but I use it more in front of telly.

That took someone a long time to put together. No matter how many times I try knitting and crocheting just will not compute in my brain so I am always envious of people who find it so easy.I'd love to be able to create something like that :)

I was going to say telly but then I thought you might have been a no tv person!

dreamer - I'm the same with crochet it's just not logical to me... but knitting somehow makes sense. Yes you're right though I can't believe how detailed the rug is and so well made.

Ali - I almost wish there was no tv (or XBox). We used to say years ago once the tv broke it wasn't going to get replaced. However that was before D Jnr arrived on the scene and needless to say the tv has been seriously upgraded on several occasions!
