Little Treasures - More Jug Covers

So I was at my Mother and Father's farm on the weekend and I was looking in the china cabinet and look what I found, and of course I had to photograph them to preserve the images forever and share them with my blog readers.

These are from my Grandmother's (Nannie's) collection and from my mother's Nan's collection. They are a little tattered and a little bit unravelled, but you can expect that for their age. I'm not sure who made them, but my mum said that her Nan crocheted but didn't knit, so she could have made them.

I have one more to share with you, but I'll save that for another day.

  3. my neighbour(when I was very small) down the road had these - with green glass bead - I was so fascinated by the beads and the crochet as a child. These ones are just beautiful

  5. Wow, they are amazing!
    I wonder how you would protect them from aging.
    That top one would have taken hours to thread all those beads onto it.
    Thanks so uch for sharing these gorgeous treasures.

  7. They are just gorgeous! You might just have to 'borrow' one or two of them soon. I always keep my eye out for such special things like that, but I haven't been lucky enough to spot one yet.
