What is Crochet?

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="350" class="zemanta-img "] Crochet hooks Suomi: Erikokoisia virkkuukoukkuja. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)[/caption]   Crochet is the act of using a hook and a length of yarn to create an interlocking looped fabric for handbags, clothing, and any number of apparel, accessory, or house-ware items. Crochet gets its name from the French and Germanic derivative of "croc," which means "crook" as in "hook." The decorative hook below (created by Brian of Brainsbarn) is an example of how the head of a crochet hook is crooked, hence the name: There is no specific date associated with the invention of crochet, but many believe that it has been used to create decorative lacy edgings for church vestments as well as warm, wool clothing for at least the last two hundred years…

The 1920’s

strawberrycouture hats
The 1920's have always been my favorite fashion era, let alone my favorite vintage era. WWI had ended and the people were ready to celebrate in excess throughout the whole decade. Attitudes in morals changed too. Women now earned the right to vote, swore, developed new slang words which some are used today such as "Dame" and "Dolled Up". 1920's fashion was all about excess and freedom; sounds like the same standard today. In the previous decade, women wore restrictive corseted dresses and heavy hats. The 1920's would not hear this. Dress hems rose, dance moves were freeform without a care, and women bobbed their hair. The Charleston dance was popular. Related articles Garters, Flappers, Rolled Stockings, and Other Stocking Stories #SBBC - Favourite Era 1920′s Passion for vintage-1920s Starting…

strawberrycouture hats
A friend offered my husband and I free room and board on her property. She mentioned she needed a groundskeeper. My husband has plenty of useful skills. With rising prices, this was going to be a Godsend. We agreed on many things, how thing were. She asked, what do you expect from lining here son and so forth. We voiced everything and made everything known. We had to move her stuff out of her second house while we moved our stuff in. We didn't mind. This lasted one week. By the time half of our stuff were moved in, all of a sudden, she barged in this morning changing everything we agreed to something else. We had a POW WOW. We told her this was not going to be like…

Learn NOT To Take Crap From ANYONE

Remember, they do not own you. Anyone who tells you, there is no hard feelings, Don't believe it! You are better off paying your own way. Free is NOT always the best thing in the world. There is a huge price tag. I'm not talking about money. I'm talking about your freedom; your LIFE; your DIGNITY. Anyone who tells you that they are your friend and then they move in on you to take your life away, they are NOT your friend. I learned something today. I will never complain about high gas prices or any rising prices ever again. Free is NOT always the best thing.
