A Whimsical Detour in Colorful Crochet

I'm not always a morning person. Matter of fact, most mornings I'm pretty irritated that I'm at work before the sun comes up. Sometimes it helps me smile, relax and breathe easier when I have the opportunity to visit a place like this.

There I find bits of whimsical crochet in very soothing colors that remind me I've wanted to make crocheted garlands for over a year now. I still haven't made a single garland that resemble these.  I have visions of what colors I would use to make a crocheted garland, and I have more visions of where I would hang them in my house, but still no garlands quite like these from Emma Lamb.

Last year I did make a few larger garlands, but they've been focused on holiday decoration and not year round whimsy. I supposed these Christmas garlands count for something, but I still dream of sweet delicate garlands that encourage me to twirl in the sunshine.

Do you have any crocheted garlands that bring you inspiration and positivity?
