What if it’s Hand Made?

I came across this beautiful post the other day and Pamela and I decided to share it with you.

I crochet a lot of gifts for friends and relatives. It gives me great joy to see their faces when they receive them, too. Here are some of the comments I’ve received lately:

  1. Gee, it’s been years since anyone knitted something for me!
  2. I’d like you to make me another one just like it!
  3. Can you make one for my friend?

And my favorite of all time:

What took so long?

Well, the truth of the matter is, there is TLC (that’s Tender Loving Care) in each and every hand-made item.  Whether it’s knit, crochet, embroider, sewing or any other type of artistry, every work of art is unique and made with love.

That’s how we feel about our floral arrangements and gift baskets. We custom design each and every one just for you! Sure, you can choose one from our beautiful website www.roadrunnerflorist.com but you need to know there’s something called “NATURE” in fresh flowers and there’s something called “ARTISTRY” in Pamela’s designs. That’s why our customers come back time and time again!

I thought I’d post a few pictures of white floral arrangements so you could see what I mean. They’re similar in appearance and design, but they’re naturally different. Each of these is available on our website.

Here are 3 fresh fruit gift baskets. As you can see, they are similar in design, but the fresh fruit varies from season to season. And of course we add holiday accents that are appropriate (like Santas, poinsettia and snowmen for Christmas and black cats and pumpkins for Halloween).

I couldn’t miss the opportunity to show you this! It’s a custom designed baby gift basket with, you guessed it, a crochet baby blanket made by Tina! Yes, this is a one-of-a-kind! If you choose to order a gift basket like this, the blanket will be similar and made with lots of love!

When you order fresh flowers or a gift basket from Roadrunner Florist & Basket Express, you know you are sending a hand made work of art, custom designed by Pamela or Tina, as a unique expression of you.

  1. This post makes me think of my grandmother, who was always crocheting. The whole family treasures the many blankets she left behind. One of these days I hope to learn more than just how to make a chain.

    • I’m glad you have fond memories of your grandmother. Mine taught me, too, first by learning to chain, chain, chain. Then she showed me how to go back, which is the secret to crochet success!!
