I'd rather be sailing


It's time to share the pic of the treat I bought myself when I was coming home. It is sitting on the rug from Samarkand, which I really like. Thanks cycling potato.

is it a knitted sailboat?

No, it's a crystal sailboat. Swarovsky to be exact. My other crystal ornaments are all animals but I thought I'd try something different this time.

Just can't resist the shiny stuff.

You deserve a sailboat of crystal, especially because you have had to take your R&R break in the middle of the winter storms. I do love the rug! Cycling Spud has pretty amazing colour sense for someone who is colourblind.

Glad that you like the rug. I love it too and it really warms up the room. The best part is the story about how he found it and met some great people along the way.

wow - I love it! do they sell other types/shapes of boats too (like a junk)?

I haven't seen any junks in the catalog but you could have a look on-line. The ornament of the year is a panda bear that comes in several sizes. I haven't collected it but you might want to have a look since Valentine's Day is coming and it might make a nice gift for your sweetie. (If she likes these kinds of ornaments,that is.)
