TWiP: Family, Food, and Crochet Flowers

This Week in Pictures, Week 27, 2018

I have gotten tired of waiting for my laptop to catch up with my brain and my fingers, and I finally bought a new computer. It’s coming some time this afternoon, so I think my weekend it going to be a bit of a nerdy one, while I get it all set up. Nerdy is just how I roll, though, so this is not going to be a problem for me!

I have been putting off this purchase for some time because I don’t really have the spare cash in the ol’ Polka Dot Cottage account, but I just couldn’t wait any longer. Neil dropped off some books at the used book store a few days ago, and was kind enough to share his proceeds with me, so I could buy it right away, but I still find the PDC coffers to be uncomfortably low.

To that end, I’m running a Big Sale this weekend, where everything (EVERYTHING!) is 25% off. So, if you’ve been putting off those bangle bracelets or a copy of Polka Dot Cottage Sweaters, now would be a good time to jump on that 🙂

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the microblogging I’ve done on Instagram all week. This includes photos I shot for Project 365 (the theme for 2018 is mornings: #myyearofmornings2018) and any other extra images I may have posted.

Photos taken with 📷 (Canon EOS 80 D) or 📱 (Samsung Galaxy S7).

Ready? Cast your mind back to this time last week…

  1. Interesting! pretty! Yummy! And WHAT are you doing with those cute flowers??

    1. I guess it’s safe to say here, since I doubt they’ll see it – it’s going to be a baby blanket for my brother and his wife. They’re expecting in October 🙂
