Olympic Mittens!

Can you believe it? I have two, count them, TWO pairs of Olympic 2010 Winter Mittens from Vancouver, Canada! This is all due to one of my online scrapbooking friends, Joanne! Whomever said that making friends online is foolish, weird, crazy, or they are not "real friends" has not ventured where I have been. Joanne selflessly sent me two pairs of the wonderful mittens that are all of the rage right now during the Olympics. There was only 3 Million pairs produced and a percentage of the proceeds benefit Canada's Olympic Teams.
It's a WIN WIN. I am so excited about these mittens.
They are not just yarn as they have a soft lining to keep ones hands warm.

I have been blessed to receive such a wonderful gift from my friend Joanne. We share the love of scrapbooking and we enjoy chatting over at Art Freckles. I just wanted to thank you publicly and let her know how much I appreciate these little "warmies!"

Yes, they will now be with my other Olympic Memorabilia that I have collected over the years. I love it and it is just another reflection of how wonderful and supremely nice of a people Canadians truly are. Their hearts are as vast, open, and beautiful as the land they encompass. Again, THANK YOU JOANNE!
Yes, I am so happy to have a "little piece" of History!

What a sweet post Kimberly!!! You are so welcome, it was my pleasure to send them to you! My kids wear theirs (so do I)...they are super warm especially when playing in the snow up here in Northern Ontario! (Maybe I should stash a pair for souvenir too...I didn't even think of that until reading your post!)
