Something to keep me warm + FEED

Yes these knitted booties are wonderful. My Great Aunt Zonnie's friend knitted them and I was so very privileged to get a hold of them. My Mom gave them to me last Sunday while here visiting. I was like oh thanks! In my mind I was really thinking I sure hope they don't smell like moth balls (they don't) and I really didn't know if I would use them. As it turns out later that night while watching T.V. my feet were like icicles. I had socks and a blanket and still could not get them warm. So I whipped out the booties. They were heaven. They warmed my feet right up and I fell in love with them. Now I wear them around the house and they are a blessing to my little (always cold) feet. I asked my Mom if there was any chance I could get my hands on another pair of them. So I have my fingers crossed.

My other great treasure that I am all about right now is these FEED bags. My mom was given one as a Christmas gift and I went crazy over it. I just had to have one! They are these reversible bags that are for such a great cause. Inspired by the aesthetic of the bags of food distributed by World Food Program, the FEED 1 bag was created. It's a reversible burlap and cotton bag stamped with "FEED the children of the world" and the number "1" to signify that each bag feeds one child in school for one year. I love my bag. It has been so great as a purse and I love that it has helped feed one hungry kid. Check out the organizations websites if your interested. I am definitely putting mine to good use!

I'm glad your booties don't smell like moth balls. That would make for an interesting foot-mothball stench. They look pretty comfy!!
