5 Favorite Handmade Finds...

It's that time again and I've come across some WONDERFUL finds this week!!

I absolutely LOVE this sash/headband! It's so elegant and so versatile. With the holidays coming up this piece is a must for any wardrobe. Can't you see yourself wearing this for a seasonal party one day and then a family event the next! Not just for the holidays, it would also be a lovely wedding accent.

When I was growing up, each year my parents would have a silhouette portrait done for my brother and myself to mark the beginning of the new year. Well, we can't forget our pets!! This was so cute and so perfect especially for those that might not have children.

Clutches are back! Why did they ever leave? This clutch is so much fun! Throw it with an outfit and add a little sassy to your style! A must on your holiday list! The designs from this shop are lovely so stop by!

Snow Bow Clutch Bag

Oh my word!!! When I saw these Boo Boo Kitties I HAD to have them on my list!! For those of you who remember "Lavern & Shirley" from the 70's and 80's you will recognize the name (: The very name Boo Boo Kitty brings back warm fuzzies. So cute and fun, but the function of these little cats is what makes them the perfect gift!

Never forget to wear your crown! Sometimes we let go of the regalness that each of us was given when we were placed on this earth...everyone has a gift to give back to the world. Place this plaque in a prominant place in your home or office and know that you are important and special or give to someone to let them know they are the King or Queen in your life (:

Oh my word! When I saw these eco dog coats I couldn't resist them!! I have two doxies myself and these look like my little Malone!! Of course, he wouldn't be caught dead in pink, but Annie's SweatShop has many colors that any dachshund would be proud to wear!
