The Warm Feeling of Having Made Something Nice

Sometimes you make something and understand immediately that it is a good thing. You keep looking at it, pleased with yourself and with a warm feeling somewhere in your chest. This infinity scarf made from a vintage Russian shawl is like that; it gives me the warm feeling of a small but important achievement.


 
This was one of the batch of vintage shawls I found recently. Many of them were in very good condition, but this one was badly damaged. However it was so beautiful that I had to have it. I took a photo for the collection, and then we turned the shawl into a scarf for someone to wear and enjoy.



Yes, this was a lovely shawl, never worn, and I could not leave it where I found it. Instead, I brought it home to give it another chance of being worn and loved. You can find it in our Etsy shop and I guess it will not be there for long.

  3. These shawls are so beautiful that they can be mounted onto a stretcher and used as a design for interior decoration.
