I asked her for something easy to wear. I love greens and grays, and wear them a lot; my working wardrobe is mostly solids, and I wanted a scarf with a pattern. It was not difficult to decide what I wanted; Galina has a number of very elvish-looking pieces, like these mittens, and I wanted something fit for an elf or a dryad, too. I know I do not look like an elf, for those are 'inhumanly beautiful', unlike myself, but I still want something elf-worthy sometimes... so why limit myself?
I asked for a large felted shawl or stole with a vegetative pattern. I love fruits and berries, so I wanted the shawl to be like cranberry in the moss, and the colors had to be green, gray and a bit of red. In response, Galina made a piece which far exceeded my expectations.
I am amazed at how well Galina understood what I wanted and made even more and better than what I had in mind... she is a wonderful artist who seems to be a mind reader, too. I know the shawl will be even better live, and now I am only concerned about surviving until it gets to me. In addition, Galina is lightning fast; she decided on the design yesterday, produced it yesterday and shipped today! pity the mail is not as fast as her...
...For other dryads and elves - those who prefer shades of autumn leaves and wet earth - she has a scarf which might be equally amazing. I am just fortunate that its colors are not good for my complexion, otherwise I would have to buy it. It is quite different from mine, but just as unique and ecological in style, with amazing texture and colors.
galafilc. I enjoy just browsing the shop now and then. The teapot purses are my favorites and I keep thinking... no, I am afraid I should limit myself for a while.
Now, I am tired of emotions. I will go to bed, thinking of my scarf traveling a long road to me... Galina, thank you so very much! Hope it arrives soon. I know I will love it - I already do!
