I Heart Boutiques

We just returned from our annual family vacation in Hilton Head, South Carolina. If you've never been, it is like no other beach location on the east coast.  You must visit once! Once was never enough for our family, we've been going back to Hilton Head Island for over 10 years. Here's a pic of "some" of the charm...

(This is not my pic, but one from Trip Advisor)

This pic shows the Spanish Moss hanging from a live oak, palmettos grow wild here, and palm trees galore! Bursting with southern charm!

There is some unique boutique shopping too, so my girls and I set out one day and hit up our favorite boutiques. At "Fresh Produce" in Colginy Plaza I discovered these really unique glass belt buckles by a local artisan, I thought you might think they were unique too so here is a pic and a link to her site...

Support your local boutiques and the ones you discover while traveling, they in turn support local arts and other small businesses--and you'll always discover something unique too :)

New Spring and Summer Cuff Bracelets

I'm having a great time designing my new cuff bracelets, discovering cute summer fabrics, great features, and adding them to my collection.  I have inadvertently made one in every color for myself, I've "road tested" them for comfort and durability, and managed to load others into the Etsy Market Place for sale.  I'm really fond of the rhinestone ones!  Sparkle bling! They run about $25-$30 in my Etsy Shop, other's are priced below $20 and all are branded with the Carolina Clover design logo.
