She loves to travel - she loves to write about travel - she takes on special causes - she takes on "just for fun" causes - she, seemingly, loves everybody, and everybody loves Vicki! She and her "Gardener" dropped through Vegas at the beginning of this year, and my friend Jackie and I enjoyed the pleasure of lunch, fun conversation, and real life hugs. Yep, Vicki is "all that, and a bag of chips"!
The mohair bear is something I made years ago - the beautiful stars with the German Glitter Glass were made by another dear friend, Joleen, of The Primitive Bucket.
In addition to knitting, I mentioned that Vicki travels (2 BAGS FULL TRAVELS) , and writes about it (she's also a feature writer for "Living Better at 50+" online magazine). Her blog is as incredible as any I've ever seen - a snap behind the shutter, she is.
She's a shop owner at ETSY - you also need to take a peek at her delightfully whimsical knitted birds nests (2 BAGS FULL NESTING) - many of which are also charity driven), as well as her "to die for" knitted accessories (I was lucky enough to add a beautiful blue winter hat to my wardrobe, just a few days ago). I would love to be her when I "grow up". Realistically knowing it probably won't happen, I can just live vicariously through my friend...

and what a friend she is! Thank you, Vicki...XOXO
