"Stunning"

I had a hard time time deciding what color to pick. Ended up getting the sunset one. Hope to buy the violet , blue, green or all one day.

A beautiful gift for a friend who lived in Guatemala for 4 years. Meaningful to give her a reminder of what was once her home, while supporting the people she cares so deeply for.

"Gorgeous table runner"

I have this covering a lateral bookcase in my office. It is so pretty and I miss being able to go see it since Ive been working from home for the past year. The picture just does not do the colors justice.
