case in point - the beautiful shibori scarf i bought from donna kallner which arrived today. i love how she had used the tissue of an old pattern to wrap the scarf, tied it with a thin black grosgrain ribbon, and included a delightful heart made from some kind of vine. i felt so special that i had to take some pictures to share with you:
isn't the packaging and the scarf lovely?
i can't wait to wear it - and the heart will find a special place in my studio.
next time you have to buy a gift, or need a treat for yourself, please consider finding an artist on etsy whose work speaks to you, especially if that artist also happens to be a member of TAFA (The Textile and Fiber Art List) like donna and i are. i know you won't be disappointed!
