A few weeks ago I won a giveaway on Resurrection Fern. I was thrilled to win two wonderful prizes--a crocheted stone and a Lines of Latitude CD. Thank you so much for the giveaway, Margie!
The CD accompanied K and me on our road trip last weekend and the crocheted stone came with me to the library for a study break photo shoot. Luckily it was a quiet day in the stacks so no one was bothered by the girl toting a stone around and taking photographs of it. (Actually, pretty much every day is a quiet day in the stacks...)
How amazing would it be walk down an aisle of books and spot a stone like this? It's so unexpected.
I thought this was a happy coincidence and I had to share it with you. I plopped the stone down randomly and took a few pictures before I realized that the titles pair well with the stone. I especially like the Pattern of Circles with the concentric crochet design, and also the book on the bottom, Peace at the Center.
Last are some very old books. I think the crocheted stone looks right at home here, nestled with books that are over 100 years old. Also, the colors of these books are just fabulous.
