I got Valentine's Day!

In a box, from Libi! She sent me a wonderful box of chocolates, and this:


A hand-knit lace scarf! I'm simply blown away. The picture isn't the best because I took it myself, with only the bathroom mirror for reference. But it's lovely. In an orange that actually looks good on me (unlike the overgrown bangs...). It's soft. It's long. It's cushy. I can't stop petting it.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I feel loved. A lot.

What a great scarf! And chocolates too, lucky!

So pretty!! I actually think your bangs look nice longer, but I remember having bangs years ago, and there's such a fine line between them being just long enough and them being in your eyes.

Ooh, dragonskin lace! I love it! (I have a similar scarf in... wait for it... green. I know, who'da thunk, Jayde likes green).

That orange is incredible on you! What a score!

Such a pretty scarf!

And bangs have such a "short" window (sorry, couldn't resist the pun) when it's the perfect length, but I think it still looks cute on you.

veritas said...

now that is just beautiful. it looks so perfect on you.

and i Like the bangs.

(here, we call it a fringe).

i am undecided if the byron yarn would be red and black - passionate, tortured, or blue and red and black - passionate, tortured, and loves water, or if i am just biased because i love blue, red and black :)

They say no one really looks good in orange, but Batty-girl, you may have just broken that rule. You look great in that color. What a lucky girl to get such lovely gifts!
