Crochet Flower Pin

Sometimes, you just need a corsage.  Yesterday was my birthday, and since I am one of those princesses who needs everyone’s full and complete attention on my birthday (also, when I’m sick) I decided to crochet myself a little posy.  So I’d look, you know, special.  This was a quick and easy project (pattern here.)

I really want to thank my husband for taking this very flattering photo of my rapidly aging neck which, somehow, looks fetching and youthful here.  Don’t I look as though I have just dropped my handkerchief and am waiting for Mr. Darcy to notice?

I also want to show you the Birthday Girl—I wrote about this last year, and my mom saw my post and sent her to me.  She came from Lieberman’s in Lansing Michigan, and was made in Japan.  She is still packed in her original box, lined with excelsior, and I’m so happy to have her.  She makes my birthday seem real.
