Valkin Threads Stormy Slippers {Review and Giveaway} #LLRGiftGuide2015

We don't allow our kids to wear shoes in our house.  Likewise, we don't wear any either. Growing up, my parents had the same rule.  When I visit there now, I still need to take off my shoes.  Really, it's no big deal- except for the fact that my feet are always cold. Sometimes I wear socks, but when I'm visiting anyone with hardwood or laminate floors, socks can be dangerous for this clumsy girl.

I have thought in the past of carrying a pair of slippers with me, but let's get real here. Who wants to carry a bulky pair of slippers with them when visiting family and friends?  Not me. No way.  My purse is full enough!

When I came across Valkin Threads on Etsy, I was immediately drawn to the slippers Sara makes and sells.  Not only are they absolutely adorable, they're also practical.  We agreed to review of a pair of slippers, and Sara sent me the cutest pair I have ever owned.  They are grape and gray in color and have a crochet strap in matching yarn that is attached across the top of the slippers and fastened with a large silver button. The bottoms of the slippers have a grippy material to keep clumsy people such as myself from slipping on slick floors.

Aside from how cute they are, I love that these slippers are portable.  I keep them in my purse so I have them anytime I need them for keeping my tootsies warm and comfortable.  Rolled up, they take up hardly any space at all in my bag.

Sara, owner of Valkin Threads and creator of all the amazing items in the shop, got her start accidentally. One night she was playing around with a crochet design and by morning, had a pair of arm warmers which became the initial item in her Etsy shop. They sold like crazy, and eventually, Sara added other items to the store.  I must say, I am happy for the accident that created Valkin Threads! I intend to be a repeat customer!

If you are in need of a gift for your daughter, mom, best friend, or actually ANY female, Valkin Threads is a must buy! You will fall in love with many of the items in her Etsy shop.

I love Valkin Threads. I already like the page on Facebook and it is one of my favorite stores on Etsy. I own a beautiful pair of fingerless gloves that I bought through the Etsy store, and I constantly receive compliments. I have been eyeing a pair of these slippers for a while now, and may just have to give myself an early Christmas present!
