My new favorite scarf

A package arrived in the mail today!   So exciting. . . for months I've been admiring the handiwork of this lady.

I got some gift money for Christmas and decided to splurge and treat myself to one of her creations. . .a bamboo silk 'obsession scarf'.   Look at the darling card that came with it.  It's like another present:)

You know I'm excited about sharing this when I take a photo of myself (funny how, no matter how many pictures I take, some old lady keeps jumping in front of the camera lens) and post it on my blog!  But just look at how pretty this is. . . and there are more on Claudia's Etsy page.  Mine is Lake Blue.  But you can order any color you like.  And there are lots of other pretty scarves and wraps, too.

Thank you, Claudia

** edited to add:  I'm hooking up with "My Favorite Things" at Claudia's this week!  Such a fun meme!

I think you are gorgeous, I do not see an old lady, where are you looking? Love the scarf, that sister of mine is pretty talented.

The scarf is gorgeous just as you are.

Claudia said...

I love it on you, Karen! It was the absolute perfect color for you.

Had to laugh at the old lady who appears in your mirror. Must be the same one that appears in mine!!

Actually, you look just beautiful!

Beautiful! I'll have to check out the etsy store.

I too had a chuckle about the lady in the mirror; wait til you get my age. :)

Hopped over from Claudia's blog to check out your new "obsession" :) It looks FANTASTIC on you!
The old lady in front of the lens made me chuckle...think she puts on her biggest and best wrinkles and visits me when I post! too funny!
Enjoy your new scarf!

Beautiful, just like the lady in the mirror!

At our house it seems to be either my mother or grandmother who jumps in front of the mirror.
