A few weeks ago I posted a link on my facebook profile to a fabulous handmade scarf by VitalTemptation simply saying "I wish I had the money for this", as money is tight for us right now it was not a wish I was expecting to come true, but I wanted to share the beauty of this handmade creation anyway. But that evening, my super-kind friend Apol - who I have known for years online but have never met in real life - took it upon herself to raise the money with our Etsy friends (and some I did not know!) to buy it for me. 11 people all donated $10 or more towards buying this scarf!
This selfless act of kindness simply to "make Anna smile" has touched me so deeply! Not only do I now have this amazing handmade scarf all the way from New York, but I also have a constant reminder of the love of my friends and the kindness of my fellow humans. Especially in this time of my life it means so much. I get comments every time I wear it. You can see from my face how happy it makes me to wear it!
Here are my 3 favourite scarves from listings on Etsy right now, for all those that love a really beautiful scarf like I do. (click on image for more information about each scarf)
