Thursday Thumbnail -- Featuring Crocheted Little Things


Today we are featuring one of our Project Wonderful advertisers, Crocheted Little Things. Lu makes some wonderful crocheted items, including Christmas ornaments, baby booties, and more.

Let's hear from Lu herself:

Hi, My name is Lu and I'm the owner of "Crocheted Little Things" under the nick name of piccoladonna2006. I come from Italy, and in Italian "piccola donna" means "little woman" and that's where my shop name come from. I'm a 26 yo stay at home busy mom of 2 wonderful kids and I have this big passion for crochet. I learned how to crochet when I was 9-10 from my mom who is a "doilie maker". It was something I liked to do during summer breaks, but never thought I could use it like I'm doing now! My biggest inspiration is the enthusiasm my kids share with me when looking at my new creations ot comes from little daily things....the necessity of a warm garment, the willing of embellish my house...I do not consider this like a job simply because I really enjoy crochet each and every piece!

*******************************************************************

To enter: Please visit Crocheted Little Things, then come back here and comment about your favorite item from Lu's shop.

Deadline to enter is Wednesday, November 26th at Midnight PST. Giveaway is open to everyone worldwide.

Those cupcakes are the most adorable little ornaments ever! I would definitely display them year round.
My other favorite shop item is the fingerless gloves http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=17364180
Cream and green are 2 of my favorite colors, and the little flower is so cute. These gloves are perfect for winter driving.
