Simply Saturday~ 03/05



Welcome to Simply Saturday!  Would you like to participate?  Grab your camera and take a picture of anything that speaks to you of simplicity and/or home. Your post can be as wordy or as wordless as you like. You decide!  Then come back here and link up. 

You are free to copy and paste the Simply Saturday button at the top of this post or in my sidebar. And while your at it do you mind  linking to my blog on your post, just to let others know where we are gathering! Thanks! :)

This week has been a bit busy. Sick children and Joel’s surgery have taken my time and energy.  I am happy to report that Joel’s surgery went well. His hand is a bit sore, but he is doing very good.

Yesterday morning I was standing at the sink doing dishes when it hit me that I hadn’t taken a picture for Simply Saturday.  I’m so glad it came to mind when it did! I’m pretty sure I could have forgotten it all together! Anyway I thought about it most of the day and then late in the afternoon I decided to just take a picture of these little flowers/square frilly thingies I have been crocheting.  I found the pattern in an old crocheting magazine from the 70’s.  Honestly, I’m not sure what I’m going to make with them…maybe a pillow? OR if I get really crazy with them an afghan?!


Anyway, I love making them because they are SO simple…just 3 rounds and WHA-LA…you have a little flower. Super simple and homey to boot!

What did you come up with for this week?  Please share! I love to see all the photos and thoughts on your homes.


  1. I love them! I wish I knew how to crochet! Have a wonderful day today!

  2. Thankful the surgery went good and he is doing well.

    You are so very talented with your crocheting. A lovely photo and wouldn't those flowers be pretty pinned on a jacket or sweater.

  3. I love your little crochet flowers! They would look so cute tacked to one of your crocheted hats or to a little girls dress!

    You and I are definitely alike! I'm posting a picture of something crafty today too!

  4. Glad your husband is doing well! Love the crocheted frilly things, I've never learned to crochet. But I did make a jean quilt this week:)
    I'm so sorry my links came up 3 times. The first two, I had typed in something wrong. The third one worked. I hope you can delete the first two.
    Looking forward to next Saturday!

  5. I'm just thrilled that Hubs surgery went well but sad your still deelin' with puny kiddos.

    I pray that Hubs has a speedy recovery as with the kiddos. Enough already!!!

    God bless and have a terrific weekend sweetie!!!

  6. Thanks Jenn for hosting Simple Saturdays! I am so happy o join you again.

    I love the flowers.
    They would be cute on a handbag too!
    Especially fun for Spring.

    Thanks so much for all of your encouragement and prayers of late. I really appreciate it.

    Glad your hubby is doing well.

    Love, Kristin

    I'm so glad you started this for Saturdays. It has really been good for me to search for things that speak of simplicity and home.

  11. Hi Jenn
    These are beautiful! I am in awe of anyone who can crochet as I've never learnt how to - I should see if I can get a beginners lesson some day!
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend - sorry I'm not linking today as I had another post for Saturday - I plan on next week!
    Have fun
