It's a beautiful world, and I'm a part of it:)

The gray scarf I showed you here finally made it to the other side of the Atlantic (although it took longer than I'd expected). Karen, who bought it, writes about it here. I loved knitting this scarf - the yarn, the pattern, everything. And I am so happy to hear that Karen is happy with her purchase:)

There is a "it's-a-small-world" story behind that sale. I am still relatively new to Etsy, discovering awesome things every day. There is a feature called "Treasury", which is basically about making collections of interesting items available in various Etsy stores. When I first learned about it I just had to make one myself:) I called it "Back to Wuthering Heights". This is what it looked like (well, almost, one item is missing):

Back to Wuthering Heights

One of the items I included in that treasury was a gorgeous bracelet cuff made by WillOaksStudio (second item in the second row in the picture above). Karen, who is the owner of this shop, emailed me, and told me, she used to live in the city I live in! How cool is that?! A stranger living thousands of miles from me, met completely by chance, once walked the same streets, looked at the same buildings, enjoyed (I hope) the post-industrial atmosphere of Łódź. You've got to love the Internet!:)

I'd love to show you the said streets, buildings and atmosphere. And one day I will. But for now, let me take you to my favorite part of Łódź. Below are some photos I took at our Botanic Garden last Friday.


there are many sundials in the garden - this is my favorite


 
apparently butterflies love asters

for some creatures it was a very busy day:)
