I’m smitten with these sweet little crocheted lamp shades from Curiosities en Tissu!  What a precious little nursery!

Not your grandma’s crochet, right?  Get out those crochet hooks and get yourself your own lampshade!

I love the idea of stitching found doilies together to create a one-of-a-kind creation!

Grab your grandmother’s doilies, some Mod Podge and a balloon?

Crocheted wire! Yes!

Here’s a great how-to to make your own doily pendant.

Do you crochet?  If so, when canl you teach me?  I knit, but never learned to crochet past the chain stitch!  Would you put a crochet lampshade in your home?

Bombs Away!

The Winspear Opera House got a psychedelic make-over in honor of the upcoming production of how to get my ex girlfriend back

“_blank”>”Hair” opening Sept. 20. It was a beautiful day on Sunday, so I headed to the Arts District to check out this amazing yarn bomb display!

Winspear Opera House Dallas

Over 70 knitters from around the Dallas area emerged on the Winspear last week to cover everything that was nailed down with crocheted and knitted yarn…every piece stitched by hand…I would have loved to have dusted off my needles and participated in this. I got a bit ‘snap happy’ over all of the gorgeous knit and crocheted eye candy. I hope these pictures bring you an ounce of the ‘groovy’ feeling I had as I walked around this creative display of hippie happiness!

Wouldn’t it be cool if this is what all graffiti looked like? Nothing harmed…just a display of colorful art made with thoughtful preparation…

The Arts District is a great place to take your family on the weekends. There’s several one hour parking spots in the area….just enough time to walk around and snap some pictures and see the sites! Your kids and dogs will love the reflecting pool beside the opera house!

‘Hair’ runs through Oct. 2nd, so try to make it within the next couple of weeks to see this amazing yarn bombing display! You’re sure to have some great photo ops with your family!

If you want to snag a seat to see this classic musical, go the the Winspear Opera House box office on-line.

Peace and Love!
