Reposted from Kos Katalogue by JekyllnHyde
I've recently moved into a new house. Lately, I've started to unpack my treasured objects from creative, talented Kossacks--all obtained via the Kos Katalogue. Let me give you a short, personal tour of just a few of the ones I use the most.
One of the first items I'll hang on my living room wall (soon, I promise) will be my gorgeous painting by asterkitty, Azalea #1. Isn't it beautiful?
Please take a look at asterkitty's website
for other wonderful creations of hers. She is very flexible and accommodating, and is always delighted to see her work in a happy home.
A box I just opened today has almost all my Fineena scarves in it. (All except the blue one that I was wearing for events pre- and post-move. ;) It is delightful to greet these beautiful adornments again, now that I have made them room, more or less. Besides, when is it a better time to wear orange? Then again, when it gets colder, I'll be wearing one or the other of the woollen cowls of hers, particularly the blue and silver one that my husband commissioned as a gift (hint, hint--to anyone who has a special someone to surprise).
I'm in the middle, between sydneyluv and ICanDoThis, wearing one of my favorites--in orange, of course.
For a while, I couldn't locate the box in which I had oh-so-carefully packed my jewelry. I persisted, however, and now my anxiety is allayed since I can put my hands on my lovely earrings from edrie
, my elegant necklaces from Lorinda Pike
, and my magnificent necklace from Wings: Hands on Silver
, my WhiteHawk (designed by Aji). My husband has been enjoying his great belts from Rocky River Leather Company
, run by Kossack meagert. (In fact, he liked the first one I gave him so much he requested a second.) I am sure I am missing some from this list, however, so my apologies in advance for any unintended slight.
The most distinctive piece of jewelry I own, WhiteHawk by Wings--a Secret Santa gift from several years ago.
As Avilyn mentioned in her diary yesterday
, the Secret Santa tradition is a sweet way for us to recognize Kossacks we care about. A nomination is made for a particular item through one of the Kos Katalogue participants. (The request/suggestion can be made by the intended recipient or by someone else on their behalf; the one making the nomination may remain anonymous.) Then the item is posted in subsequent Kos Katalogue diaries, so that donations for the gift can be solicited from the community at large. Eventually, the intended recipient comes into possession of it--and let me link to remembrance's thank you diary from early this year
to show you one example of just how meaningful these gifts are. It's a win-win: a wonderful surprise for the recipient, and a boost to the Kossack who created it.
