Mmmmm... Pashmina!

I got a gift in the mail, a lovely Pashima/Silk scarf from Carolyn, a present from her trip to Italy! It is so soft and soooo warm! It is a light pink colour, with a rainbow of colours woven in with gold tinsel.

Pashima is also called the "diamond fiber" and "the soft gold of high Asia". It is the finest, softest and warmest wool known to mankind, coming from the underbelly of the Capra Hircus goats from the Himalayas.

Miranda got a wooden Pinocchio toy, one of those kind that you hold on to the head and pull a string at the bottom and the arms and legs move up and down.
