Today is Mardi Gras which is celebrated in some cities here in the U.S. so I thought I would add some purple fuzz to my black velvet outfit to celebrate. Where I live there is no celebration, but in cities such as New Orleans, people dress up in fun costumes usually in the colours of purple, green and yellow to celebrate. This purple fuzzy scarf was a handmade gift from my step father’s mother. I just love the colour and softness of the material.
I know a lot of you would shove these handmade items in the back of your closet never to see the light of day, but I think these are special gifts. It’s something that no one else has and that was made with love especially for you. What do you think of handmade gifts? Do you wear things your grandmother knitted for you? Are you celebrating today?
