My readers ROCK

Julie Pierce of Chapman Interiors knows how much I adore a good DIY project. After reading my recent post about the upcoming Design*Sponge encyclopedic ode to all things glue gun, Miz Julie whipped out a little gift for me. An homage to my all-time favorite WTF twee creation - crocheted rocks.

Honestly, people. What the hell?

She even inscribed it.

Julie, it's hands-down the best gift I received this holiday season. Thank you for the belly laugh! I plan to be buried with it.

Raina...I went back to your original post...HILARIOUS!!!...lovin the faux-crocheted would be a definite "must display" on my bookshelves in my living room! Have a great week....K

I just had a superb idea. What with Pea's (Happy Belated Birthday!) milk teeth soon to be coming out, how about keeping them and individually crocheting them? Then, when she's 21 you can present her with a full set of her crocheted baby dentures.
Genius, if I do say so myself.

That gave me a fab chuckle. I mean, we all need one of these, right?

HA! Hilarious.
I rather like the crocheted rocks at the time, especially in a grouping -- because I'm mad open like that ;)
But this is sheer genius.
Enjoy ;)

Raina I too went back to your original post, and about died laughing.

I am still wondering if this is a craft for those of us who need rehab!Too bad I can't crochet.

Seriously!! I bet you were astounded when you opened your Gift!

(One of my grandmothers crocheted like crazy. Which she was. One had to move fast to avoid getting crocheted on.)

So funny! And I think Julia may have started an entirely new crafting craze: Faux Cro.
