Love Presents

IMG_8527

So, I don’t know if y’all got a sense of this from my nearly complete and utter lack of bloggage as of late, but this summer has been a bit.. shall we say..

FULL ON.

But it’s September now. The weather is still sunny and beautiful, but getting cooler. I can still wear my flippy floppies, but with a jacket and pants. Things are starting to wind down.

Our boss, because she is probably not even a real human being but some kind of light spirit made of patchwork quilts and love, gave everyone $150 thank you gift certificates to the crafters guild. For ya know, not going on a killing spree during the insanely busy summer. HA HA HA. But really though, it was super sweet. And we made the fucking most of it. The nice thing is, if she had just given us a bonus we could have just bought groceries with it or paid OSAP. But because we HAD to spend it on beautiful handmade items, we got some really cool stuff and it felt like bloody Christmas.

LOOK AT OUR PRESENTS!! PRESENTS!!!!!!!!!!

Seal skin gloves. Super soft, super super super warm, and really.. incredibly beautiful. These are now on of my most precious, sacred objects of my life.

I wore them while laying on the floor drinking rye & cokes watching Niel Degrasse Tyson explain the universe to me, so ya know.. special occasions.

The other part went to this beautiful 2-tone wooden rolling pen that was handmade by a nice fellow named Aidan.

These were CB’s gift. Handmade wool socks. Ultra thick and warm.

These are his special motorcycle socks. They are specially made by ladies on the Change Island with double cinching so that they dont fall down in your rubber boots while you are picking berries. Seriously, that is what they were designed for. How beautiful is that.
