It was not until last Saturday that I realized I have kept a brown knitted shawl
for almost two years and never worn it. I was the lucky buyer who purchased this from Etsy! At that time, there were several "hearts" on this item, ... so many that I was surprised anyone would let it stay unsold as long as they did. Especially when it only costs a mere $8.00?
Finally, the day arrived that it was shipped to my home. In my excitement,
I tried wrapping and wearing it around my body! I then noticed that it was huge and I was shocked!
It was also very wide. Although the size was described on the listing before I bought it,
when it arrived it was as much larger than was originally described.
Headband from Attic Memoirs on Etsy and handmade by my mother.
( vintage silk dress, vintage knitted shawl, belt from my mother,
vintage necklace and bracelet, Tiffany and Co. bracelet, Ariat cowboy boots )
From then on, I decided to call it, "Brown Wings"!
Everyday it drapes across the back of my favorite velvet wing chair located in my hobby room.
It does not only look beautiful but it has a very practical function.
It kept me warm from the cold Oregon winter wind that blew across the top of my lace and silk dress...
