A couple of weekends ago I enjoyed a day trip getaway north of San Francisco. Part of it included stopping in San Anselmo. I went to the Atelier Marin yarn store. I also went to the history museum inside the library where I spotted some historical pieces of crochet in their exhibit.

At The Museum

The historical exhibit had two vintage doilies on display on top of a cabinet:

The exhibit also had a rag rug on the floor:

At The Yarn Store

The first thing I noticed was the vintage Schwinn bike in the window that had crochet skirt guards on each of the tires:

And then of course I had fun with the yarn:
