I have gotten to know the owner of Lily and Bo through Facebook and she is a wonderful and talented handmade artist. My daughter owns a pair of hair clips that she loves to wear. They are super cute and very well made. I highly recommended you check out her store, because you will find something you love and must get! After you check it out come back and share one of your favorite items from her shop.

Featured Friday: Blue

This week Featured Friday is going to run a bit different. I am going to share with you some of the blue items shared on my Facebook page, but I also will have a link up for everyone to share one blue item from their shop. Then starting next Friday I will share my top picks from the previous week and then there will be a link up with a special theme right here on the blog.

Let's start with some great blue handmade items!


I have to say this is probably my favorite them so far, because I am in love with each and every one of these items. Now for the first link up, and if I shared one of your products feel free to share another one in the link up.
