A Huge "Thank You" to my Customers!

Over the past few years, I have reconnected with a very good friend from high school, Merideth.

Here is a picture of us in high school at some "important" Washington, DC landmark

It has been so great reconnecting with her, she is now the responsible mother of 5 beautiful children, a long ways away from our days of hanging out with guys who were too old for us, wearing snakeskin pants and occassionally blowing-off school.  Through our conversations, we spoke about our internet shops, hers being  Carlykins Boutique (I love the name!), where she makes gorgeous high-quality and trendy accessories for girls of all ages.
Here is Merideth as gorgeous as ever!

Merideth recently started a blog and one of her posts was to guess Merideth's favorite animal to win one of her hair clips.  Well, I guessed, however I was wrong (why else would you wear snakeskin pants unless it was your favorite animal?)  Merideth decided to give me a prize anyway!  I was so excited and when she asked me what I wanted, I said I wanted something "fun and girly."  A few days later I opened up my mailbox and was greeted by a gorgeous purple flower clip which is beyond amazing!  From the moment I first put it on, I got millions of compliments (I get at least 5 compliments a day when I wear it).  Look how wonderful they look in the hair:

Don't I look so natural and demure in this pose?

The beautiful Francesca who "needed" this clip.

All these compliments and good feelings gave me a great idea..I knew my customers would LOVE these clips as much as I did and so I asked Merideth if she would sell me some so I could include them as "Thank Yous" in some of my orders.  Merideth was as excited about this idea as I was (and we both still are) so to make a long story short,

All Orders over $50 (not including shipping) in both my Etsy and Personal shops will receive one of these beautiful flower barrettes.

Here are a few of the beautiful clips you may receive (they will be randomly selected):

Happy Shopping and please head-over to Carlykins Boutique where she is donating a portion of all her sales to a really amazing cause, helping 3 orphans come to the US for Christmas.
