I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
We did a lot of celebrating this weekend! We attended my best friends wedding which was beautiful, simple and meaningful... loved it--Congrats Shelby and Erik! My daughter's friend had a magical 2 day birthday celebration at Disneyland and we hurried back Sunday to make it to my nephews 5th birthday party. I'd say Mom and Dad are a little tired after this weekend but it was all worth it.
The weather is chilly outside and it makes me want to create things with my own two hands to keep my family and myself warm. This year I'm hoping to expand my skills past a beanie and a scarf.
I crocheted the scarf I'm sharing today for my daughters darling little girlfriend 4th birthday. She is quite the little princess who loves to wear her accessories. Yay, I thought to myself, an excuse to run to the store and splurge on some quality yarn. My only mistake was not buying two skeins. One skein wasn't enough to make it wrap around and stay. I went to my jar of vintage buttons and hand-sewed a large button on one side to keep it from falling off. It wasn't my first intention but I think it turned out ok.
I recycled the tissue paper I received in my package from French Larkspur the other day and wrapped the handmade scarf in it. Isn't the tissue paper pretty? I just love it! I tied it with some white twine I bought at Home Depot and added a tag with a stamp that reads "handmade with love." It adds a sweet touch to the package, don't you think? I bought the stamp a few months ago for a $1 at Michaels.
I'll be back soon to share what I bought from French Larkspur!
Have a wonderful week my friends!
until next time,
