A Handmade Holiday : Day 1 : Elegant Accoutrements

Today marks the start of the holiday season on my blog. In addition to the regular daily posts, I will be posting a brand new feature right here, as well as launching a brand new section just for the holidays entitled "Holiday Weddings". This new section will feature daily posts on planning a holiday wedding. Be sure to check this section each day and you can subscribe to Holiday Weddings via RSS as well so you don't miss a post. And, now for today's new feature launch that will be right here on the main blog each day . . . a Handmade Holiday.

Each day thru mid-December I will be featuring at least one artist who creates lovely handcrafted items. These items might be given as gifts or used during the holiday season either at home or for weddings. I hope you enjoy this new feature and please be sure to visit the web site of the artist(s) each day as you just might find that perfect gift for either yourself or someone special.

Today's spotlight is on Buds and Blooms who creates Elegant Accoutrements and specializes in high-quality hand-made beauties at reasonable prices. Corrine, the designer, creates gorgeous adornments to fit any lifestyle. And, proceeds from sales at Buds and Blooms fund community projects in Ghana, West Africa, through the international development agency, The Afri-Can Connection.
