the scarfament

first up: allison, you won the blossom & vine giveaway! email me today!

back on november 1st i shared about the scarfament swap, a scarf and ornament exchange where you would be paired up with a partner here in blog land, a new friendship would be formed, and your would bless them with a new scarf and ornament…two of my favorite things. that was a long run-on sentence.

the budget for the scarfament was $20 dolla bills and just about 90 of you ladies signed up. i can't wait to read each of your posts about how the swap was for you, hear about your newly found friend, and see your goodies!

i was paired up with sweet ruth. she is such a lovely lady and mama but, most of all, her heart for Christ shines through. i am so thankful to have been partners with her.

for ruth, who loves jewel tones, i purchased this infinity scarf from tomie harlene. her little owl ornaments are handmade by my friend april, from i sew lucky.

ruth made my day when my pretty new scarf and ornament came in the mail. i told her i loved mustard and she shopped so well for me. she got me this lovely circle scarf from H&M. it can be worn long, wrapped once, or short, wrapped twice around my neck. i love the soft purple and mustard and couldn't have been more giddy when i saw what she picked out! i am also wearing it in this post, and basically every day of my life.

her handmade ornament was perfection as well. i love this little scalloped guy. and the colors are some of my favorites, too. anything kraft paper makes my heart happy. thank you so much, ruth!
