Sachi saw this blanket and thought of me because the chevron pattern is like a long string of Ws. I love it! I think it's been used every day since she gave it to me nearly two weeks ago.
As if the W/chevron pattern wasn't enough coolness for one girl to handle, which it is, the blanket happens to be made from my two favorite colors. Not only is it my two favorite colors, but it's shades of blue and green that go perfectly with my crazy cobalt and lime walls. Check this out!
The next form of W love was given to me anonymously. My friend Ruby makes felt Christmas ornaments, including buttoned monograms. I received a package from her a week ago with an ornament enclosed, along with a note saying it was from one of my Sonlight sisters. It immediately went on our tree and will be moved to the W wall later today.
Ruby's shop, which is currently closed for Christmas, gave a significant part of their profits toward an adoption grant for Simon during December. I love knowing that a W that I love will also help a family bring Simon home!
Then it was Christmas day. I opened several Ws from Carol and one that was in a bag of gifts left anonymously at our front door the week before Christmas. A magnetic notepad, a package of cards and envelopes, a wall hook, a box of scratch paper, an ornament, and two large Ws to hang on the wall. I'll probably leave the white one as is because I don't have a plain white one, but I'm going to do something fun with the other one. I don't know if I'll just paint it or venture out on the limb of crafty stuff. I'll let you know once I figure it out.
Fun, fun, fun!! I love how each of my Ws reminds me of a person, trip, or situation that makes me smile.
