Favourite Things Friday

By PaisleyJade - Friday, May 01, 2009

Here are some of the things I am loving at the moment...

Guys that like to crochet and knit

May I introduce to you, Andrew Burton. This guy is a crocheting and knitting machine with some pretty cool beanies and stuff on his website (see here).

I did have a bit of a laugh at his couch cover and cushion... but hey, nice to find a guy who isn't ashamed to be himself ;)

Reminded me of a post I did ages ago here.

Peppermints in a tin

There's something about peppermints in a tin... and I discovered some 'Wild Bean' ones last week.... mmmmmm.

Granny squares

Yes, I am still loving crocheting granny squares. I think I have enough to make a scarf. But don't worry, I won't be making myself a granny square dress like the one below... although then again it could look rather stylish with the right shoes...

Funny blogs

I just love those blogs that make you smile... and that are random and interesting. Here are a few of my favs...

Betty's Blogazine... especially her Things I Love Thursday (they bring back so many memories)

B is for Burton... I am married to to guy who writes it (which would make me slightly biased), but I do crack up at his random thoughts and posts... they make my day.

Art by Anya... she is crafty and clever and very funny (and a great friend).

What things are you loving at the moment????
