Hooray, I got pictures! Look at the awesome greenness of what Miss Barbara made for me! I'm sorry the pictures are still a little blurry. But hey, I cleaned of my desk at work just to take them!
First there was a beautiful, snuggly-soft lap blanket, embroidered with vines and leaves! It's the perfect weight for this warmer weather we've been having.
Then there was a really awesome box, decoupaged with Chinese newspapers (I told her that I love Chinese characters, I think they are so beautiful), glazed in green! And you can just barely make out the inside color-- it's bright green on the bottom and dark green on top!
Then, a super bright happy cowl (did I say I was wanting a cowl, or did you read my mind? because I wear scarves all the time but I was thinking how nice a cowl would be for really windy days!) with a giant green button and a really cute crocheted heart pin with a sparkly silver heart button in the middle!
I mentioned that I would like to have a laurel wreath to wear in my hair, and Miss Barbara did one better-- a super comfy headband that she decorated with leaves! So now I can wear this all over without getting the goofy looks that a full-on wreath would have brought me.
Thank you, Miss Barbara! I love everything.
