handmade solutions #2 [outfitting your winter wardrobe]


[outfitting your winter wardrobe]

it is starting to get seriously cold up here in the “north woods”! going through all of my winter wear (ie. hats, mittens, scarfs etc.) has left me wanting more. i’m not crazy about anything that i have from last year, so i went out on a search for beautiful, practical, affordable winter wear from independent artists who will appreciate my purchase much more than the big box stores will. there were so many great things that i had to force my self to stop. so, the list is long, but i wanted to make sure to include items that fit everyone’s style…..from classic cable knits to modern and high fashion. enjoy!
