Turkish Delights

i had the wonderful opportunity to do an etsy trade with the lovely sara from forestlass who lives in Turkey.
here she is beautifully gracing one of the dresses i sent her:
Lovely mail, originally uploaded by forestlass1.

and here i am in the amazingly soft and perfect "autumn harvest" beanie made from her favorite wool ever that she got when she was 15 years old and has been lovingly knitting into projects over the years...this was the last of it and i'm honored to have the joy of wearing it this fall.

uh-oh,
guess who wants to steal it though:

i was so proud and excited to receive a package all the way from turkey...
that had to go through US customs and border patrol....(they opened up my package. how weird is that? i'm sure they were quite as delighted with the contents as i was...)

all the way across the atlantic and all the wonderful places in between to bring these lovelies to me:
emily says moonstone is good for fertility! now that is universal benificence.
beautiful tidbits, drawings and origami and homegrown, hand-dried lavendar.
also a special blouse that i will show you all in a later post...

thank you so much to sara from forestlass and i truly encourage to check out her shop,
for she is one talented and inspiring lady!

The ring is gorgeous, I love moonstone. I had the most amazing handmade silver and moonstone bracelet that I purchased in Mexico and I lost it years back on a trip to Tahoe, I still miss that bracelet.

The hat is perfect, I can see why Darin would want to steal it!

Wow, that is so special, who doesn't love getting packages especially from far away? I love a good swap, let me know if you'd ever like to swap with me!

Funnily enough, I felt the same way when I received my dress from you! I've never even left Canada, so that I was receiving something from far away California was really trippy. And of course your note and that red feather made me smile. I still tell people about you and your note and your little feather every time they compliment my dress or ask me where I got it. Actually, I'm wearing it right now! Haha...
