thankful :: one

given that it is november and thanksgiving is approaching, i thought it would be fun to post (as much as i can here given all of the grad school work i have to do) a series of entries highlighting just a few of the things (because there are many!) that i'm thankful for in my life.

so i will start off this first post by expressing my gratitude for crafters, especially those whom i'm related to, eh em, thistle downs wool design.

i recently purchased a couple of handmade purses from her for christmas presents and being the fabulous cousin that she is, she included two special treats, one for me and one for my sister. have a look:

felted scarves!! the pink and grey one is so me. while the brown and tan one is very much my sister's style. i can't stop wearing mine!

so i am thankful for you cousin and your thoughtfulness and generosity.

for those of you looking to purchase something handmade this holiday season for a special someone, i highly recommend going on over to thistle downs wool design or visit her store at smashing darling.
