Originals from Our Home to Yours - Another BESTeam Feature

     If you like original and one of a kind items, look no further than Our Home to Yours. It’s the place where you will find a most eclectic assortment of items from footwear and jewelry to home décor and linens. What these items all have in common is the mother/daughter team of Debbie and Amanda. When they create something, they almost never re-make it.
     You will never see a piece of jewelry from Our Home to Yours sold and re-listed. Debbi, a busy mom and foster-mom (yay!), doesn't draw a design first and rarely buys in bulk. She just piles her beads in front of her, and lets the jewelry design itself. She feels that “if you wanted to look like everyone else, you would be shopping at Walmart.”
     Amanda, a third generation artist, has a toddler, a degree in Graphic Design and a Fine Arts background. She handles the shop's graphic design and signage. Together, mother and daughter create unique treasures through stringing, crocheting, appliqués, paint and multi-media. All with a homey feel that speaks of the love in each and every creation. (Debbi's great at finding vintage treasures, too!)
     Just take a look at these handmade crochet blue flower flip flops! They are way too cute and just in time for summer!

      Here's my favorite! This bridal shadowbox is a custom order item and a lovely keepsake of your special day! Remember, June is Bridal Month!

      Now, here's a little piece of vintage! Debbi found this Jeanette Lombardi footed punch bowl. It's just right for your next graduation party or springtime soiree!

     This one is a Debbi original! Turquoise is one of my favorite colors and it's shown off very nicely in this Handmade Indian-Style Necklace. Just perfect for Mother's Day!

      Here's a wonderful item just in time for the bride and groom in your future! This precious Butterfly Quilt Coverlet is full size with a box pleat skirt and lovingly hand-stitched around each butterfly and dragonfly.

     Thanks, Debbi and Amanda, for bringing your home to ours at Our Home to Yours! Be sure to join them on their lovely blog. Fan them on Facebook and tweet them on Twitter, too, won't you? I know they'll welcome your visit!

All the best!
