Making The New Place Into My Place

A while back my uncle sent my mom and I two peshmina shawls. He is an artist currently working with the military in Iraq, you can read his blog to learn more about his many adventures. These shawls were made in Iraq and are very very beautiful and massively huge! I wasn't quite sure what to do with it as it doesn't get cold enough here to wear them and I don't have a table worthy of a runner but since I've moved into my own apartment, I needed some decorations to cover up the plain white walls.

The shawl almost covers the entire length of the wall I hung it on! I know what you are thinking, either that wall is tiny or the shawl is huge, and to be honest, its actually a combination of both.

There are so many wonderful colors, and the detail in the piece is amazing! What do you think?

Oh, and I have been slowly but surely working on a new scarf for my shop, between classes, work, homework, and moving its been slow going, but here is a preview of whats to come! So keep your eyes on the shop so you can snatch up this trophy before someone else does ;)
