It is no secret I have an obssesion with all things Alaska. So imagine my pure joy when I learned I won some baby mukluks from Finnskimo. She made them herself with "Blue Felt and Deer Leather with Beaver trim". She is half Finnish and half Eskimo and lives in Kotzebue, Alaska. Considering my new favorite show is Flying Wild Alaska, I just pictured this package being handled by some of Era Alaska's employees (and Finnskimo's hubby is a pilot; gotta ask her if he works for Jim Twedo!!!!).
THANKS SO MUCH FINNSKIMO! They are so soft and soooo professionally made. I can tell they are 100% authentic Alaskan! :)
I love his smile! What a precious baby!
He looks adorable!
My husband loves Flying Wild Alaska too, mostly because he's a pilot, not because of Alaska :)
Those are so sweet. Just like the little fella wearin' them! Have a great weekend!
SO CUTE! He looks so happy. Oh and thanks so much for your encouraging comment on my blog :)
Yay, I'm so glad they fit! :)
My hubby works for me. In our plane! hahah. He was a medevac pilot forever and a day, then went to AK Air, then went back to the bush working for Tweto, but its sort of dangerous at Era, so now he builds houses for elders, works 8-5 (for the first time in his life) and flies us back and forth to camp every weekend.
We watched one episode and uh, its so dramatic for an everyday thing. It's just life for us but Discovery really makes it look LIFE THREATENING when its windy. We get about 35 mph winds every day all day long but maybe its different way down in Unalakleet! :) Our pilots up here better be able to fly in the wind/snow and ice or go somewhere else!
(Oh and I fly about four to six flights a week for my job. I commute in the morning and come back in the evening to the surrounding villages. Next week I'm here M-W, Thursday I'll go to Noatak with Era, and Friday I'll go to Kivalina. I love living here!)
Cute! They look so comfy.

Come get a dose of laughter at A Taste of T
And they are orange - which is totally Blaine's color. Congrats!
Those are adorable! But your baby is even cuter :)
Oh those are sooo cute! I totally love Finnskimo's blog--it is one I regularly stalk. She is an amazing seamstress! It is awesome that you won that giveaway!
haha your shirt says I like big pumpkins and I cannot lie. This is what I love!
That is so cool!!! You should shoot for a pair of those fancy mittens that Ariel Tweto gave to Ponze (sp?). And this is my fav program above all others because of the flying, Alaska and the people, sometimes not in that order :)
