march photo challenge: cut, orange & complete

So today is the last post for the March Photo Challenge. I am catching up with the last 3. I want to thank Belle @ Scrambled Eggs for hosting this challenge. It has helped keep my mind off things and keep me sane this month. It was also SO MUCH FUN! I will definitely be doing this again some other month.

The last 3 prompts are Cut, Orange & Complete


I wanted to get over to my Mom and Aunts' hair salon and get an action shot of my Mom cutting someone's hair, but unfortunately I never got there. So, these are my crochet scissors. I have had these since my Momma first taught me how to crochet some time over 15 years ago.

Like my bathroom, when we bought the house we just picked colors for each room and decorated from there. This is my dining room. It is very orange. The Hubby says pumpkin orange. It was supposed to be a little more rusty, but even after a dark base and 3 coats of the orange it was a lot brighter than it should have been. It took a little getting used to, but now we really like it. I forgot to take a pic during the day when it looks nicer in the natural light. The ceiling light makes it more orange.















And now for the completion to the challenge. I have been meaning to make my blog a little nicer and more me. I finally completed it! I made my own header! I wanted to bring yarn into the blog, but didn't want it to overpower like my first background. I just love my cute little heart ball of yarn! I think I'm done. I might add a signature if I can figure out how to do it.

  1. LOVE the new look! It's very simple, yet has a warm, welcoming feel. Or maybe that's just how your blog feels in general:) Nice work!

  2. I love that you still have your crochet scissors. I still have a lot of the crochet hooks that my mom taught me to crochet on, and regularly return to them when I'm crafting out of comfort.

    1. I craft out of comfort all the time. I have the same crochet hooks I first got. I learned on my Momma's hooks, but she still has and uses them.
