Over the time that I have been in contact with Olivia I have become more and more interested in her crochet work which she sells through her Folksy shop under the name of Girly Bunches.
I have always loved crochet since I was a little girl… I think I was about five or six years old when my Grandmother first taught me to crochet and I found out a little while ago that my aunt still has the baby blanket that I crochet for my little cousin in 1992!! That was a surprise to hear, albeit it a lovely surprise 😉
My crochet skills are pretty limited and I can just about complete a square or circle blanket without too much trouble but don’t ask me to do anything more complicated, and follow a pattern?! You’ve no hope!! So when I found Girly Bunches on Folksy I instantly knew that I would become a customer… her work is gorgeous, so unique and well thought out. Lots of different ideas and designs that I would never have dreamed of – home decor, jewellery, Christmas items. I was in crochet heaven.
I recently placed an order for a few Christmas items (you can see these ‘here’) and at the same time, decided to treat myself – why not, eh? 😉
My first love is this beautiful “Chocolate and Vanilla Ice Cream Crochet Necklace” – as soon as I saw it, I knew exactly what I would wear it with, so it had to be mine. It’s so well made and pretty that I can see me shopping soon for different colours of a similar style!!
As we have all noticed, Winter is here so it’s a time for warm snuggly coats, dull weather and long dark days so what better way to brighten up your days than with a handcrafted crochet brooch? OK, maybe I got carried away a little when I ordered two – I already have my eye on others too but they’re just so pretty!!
