    The best handmade item I have ever purchased were a set of PB&J pillows for my best friend. We always say, "you're the peanut butter to my jelly." and I found someone online that makes two toast-shaped pillows with a blob of purple on one and a blob of brown on the other. She even embroidered our nicknames on the top of them. It was amazing being able to give her something so personal and special. :)

    I bought an artisan copper table top water feature. It is on my front porch between my rockers. It looks like an old water pump with a bucket. When the bucket fills with water it dumps out the water to fill again. A small bird is perched on top!

    I love copper! Thanks for offering. The best hand made item I ever bought was a green necklace with beads made entirely from paper! It was made by women in Africa who make these out of scrap paper, dye them, and sell them to support their families. I wish I could post a picture because you would never believe that something this beautiful was made almost entirely from paper!
