i love your backyard!


Love the hangers and the color choices you made. Awesome! I also love all the gorgeous colors that pop out when a storm comes. They seem more intense to me.


Gorgeous richly saturated colors! That view of your backyard is soo pretty!


Ahhh, I am loving your yard! Great job with it! And the light with the balls of yearn {especially in the second picture} make me want to curl up on the couch and have a sleepy day. For some reason April has been such a beautiful month this year. It really feels like Spring... both rainy and sunny {at least here in California}. Just right. I want to go to Dottie's retreat -- it looks like it would be so much fun!

So THAT'S why I can't find any of those hangers - they're all at your house! LOL

I love your spring-storm colors, those are all my favorites too. Flowering trees and new green leaves against a periwinkle sky = magic.

You really should print them all out and group them together somewhere in the house! Lovely. As always.


I read Jane's blog too and now after seeing two sets of crocheted hangers I am really gonna have to make some! :D so so lovely!


I know about that thunder. I was on the phone in a building near LLoyd Center and the person on the other line asked me what that noise was. Everyone in the office rushed to the windows to see if they could see lightning. We only heard it twice. It would have been so cool to see a lightning show from our 6th floor windows. Maybe next time. Love your colors.

I love the hangers and the colors of the yarn. Another pattern for the hangers is done by Lucy @ Attic24, whom I found because of you. It's got me looking for old wood hangers as well. While you were scowering the Good Wills for might also look for yarn. I have a dear English friend, that keeps her little hands very busy crocheting or knitting scarves and hats for the homeless and Convalescent Homes..and most of the yarn comes as donations to her...from her friends who get out and go to Good Wills. So, perhaps, you could find all that you need at your local thrift store. Do enjoy your new light and garden...I would if I came to visit...but I would hope that you would also serve a cup of hot Earl Gray and one of your Muffins. smile


Pretty, pretty hangers! My grandma used to have a few of those in her closet. =)



hose hangers bring back memories of my Grandma, I cant believe I forgot how much I loved the ones she made me when I was little! and I agree about Spring being lovely in a mystic, melancholy sort of way... here is a pic I took of a gorgeous scene I happened by but when I edited it I found I was putting a wistful, aching longing into it.. beautiful but somehow out of reach


I have been changing out all our hangers lately because I want them to match- Mine are all store bought wood or plastic.
Love the photos of your yard, the earth is so dark.
I feel like I can smell the soil post rain. Lovely.


Love the photo of the backyard space. What a great place to have tea!


I love, love, love spring storms! We have has two recently, and sadly, I think we are done for the season. Those hangers are so neat! So old-fashioned and so lovely!


I love the sweet crochet hangers - I remember crocheting hanger covers when I was younger :-) We can't get The Delicious Miss Dahl here either but I am hoping for her cookbook for Mothers Day :-) Lovely post & pics Alicia ♥


oooh, it WAS moody yesterday! Tamtrum-esque with all that energetic weather! LOVE the colors that brings. Your yarns are perfect and these spring colors are so very you.


I think the weather and the outdoor colors influence us even when we don't know it. I play different music on the harp when it's cloudy than I do if it's sunny out. We're all individual little barometers!


I was looking for something nice to do to wooden hangers to display some baby sweaters in my creative space- these are perfect! Thank you so much for sharing!


I have seen those hangers everywhere. Every time I see one I think that I need to make some. Those are gorgeous!

those colors are so beautiful together. i love the spring greens, pinks and grays too. really magical.


I love the same colors you do, and I was just thinking how much I like the colors in your photos as I started to read your blog post! Perhaps the colors all around you have woven themselves into your heart and soul.


Your yard is so pretty and restful looking. My husband and I are in Dallas OR watching over our grandchildren for a week while their parents are on a cruise! I am so glad it has been (in Portland)-- when I get home everything won't be dead due to lack of water! My late mother in law had a lot of those crocheted hangers in that same pattern - but hers were in orange, yellow, army green and the rest of the colors of that day. I like yours much better and may crochet some myself!


Oops!! I forgot a word in my previous post -- raining!!!! (but I'm sure it was figured out!)

Judith Norman

Love those hangers.


i love those hangers! my aunt would crochet around a wire hanger and they are the best. so pretty and strong. i don't think joan crawford would like them though, but she might not realize they're wire ;).
