Happy birthday, Jenny!

Happy birthday to Jenny of Skybox Human Creations. Jenny makes lovely crocheted and knitted items, and rumor has it that she crochets as fast as I do. :) Her cotton market totes are super cute and practical, but I'm in love with this pair of socks. I can only imagine how soft and comfortable they would be, and I love the sterling silver edging! So visit Skybox Human Creations today, check out all of the wonderfully yummy looking items, and wish Jenny a very happy birthday!
