My friend, Sally, of Salakazoo's makes the most incredible things out of recycled wool sweaters. She was doing it a long time before it became immensely popular. She made me this beautiful pillow for my birthday last month.
This little flower she put on the back hides her tag. Is that cute or what? Every year I put my request in for a handmade birthday present from her. So far, she hasn't turned me down yet!
This scrumptious bag was last years birthday surprise. I always get a lot of compliments whenever I use it. She has such a great way of blending colors and textures. I''m amazed at her creativity.
She has done more than one pair of mittens for me. Currently she is working (right Sally?) on mittens in my sons college colors for me (I'm so bad). My daughter and I share these, her high school colors are orange and brown, ugly cheerful colors that they are! I had so many people coming up to me that Sally could have sold a pair to about 100 people during football season. I am truly blessed to be around so many creative women and so many creative bloggers. It certainly is a blast to sit down at the computer and see what you all have dreamed up for me to enjoy. Thank you!
