Fox Attack!

 I was attacked . . . by this ferociously cute fox scarf!  Isn't it just the wackiest, craziest, cutest thing!?  I first saw this at my friend Stephanie's blog (The Enchanting Rose) at her weekly Roses of Inspiration Party.  This scarf was one of her features.  You know how when you see something that just 'grabs' you -- you can't stop thinking about it?  So I headed straight over to the La Sportina and contacted this talented blogger, Roberta, asking if she sold these scarves.  And much to my delight -- she does!
Roberta lives in Italy (always amazes me how blogging makes the world accessible to everyone!) and after a few emails back and forth I ordered two of these as Christmas gifts for my twin daughters (who are traveling and working in Honduras right now with limited internet access so I HOPE they don't see this post haha!) as Christmas gifts!  Yay -- I'm ahead of the game for Christmas 2016!
The scarves so remind me of those mink wraps that our mother's used to wear!  These are made out of lovely, soft wool and are so cozy, I didn't want to take it off!
Roberta sent these quickly and with these cute little tags attached (I LOVE details!).
I think that it's extra cool when you have things from other countries with labels like these -- such a nice, added touch.
Thank you Roberta -- now hopefully I'll remember where I stash these come Christmas time!
