I can't believe she's leaving tomorrow! My baby is moving away for her last two years of college and we spent yesterday packing my van with her craigslist, thrifted and dumpstered possessions.
Her colors are shudderingly seventyish -- avocado green, orange, gold and purple -- but I'm proud that she has a strong sense of what she likes. And I'll admit that in the seventies I, too, craved those colors.
The exception is this tasteful white and pale blue nubby woven bedspread that was mine in the eighties. And of course, what student domain wouldn't be complete without an Indian batik tapestry such as this purple beauty. Actually, she's using it for padding and will probably lend it out to someone else.
What more can be said about this crocheted afghan other than it was one of the highlights of her thrift store/dumpster days?
Take good care of her ... sob.
Have a colorful day
