A is for ....

The best bit of writing for the Bbest Blog is searching through the items that have been created by the members.  There is so much out there that is good quality and interesting.  I decided I would do an alphabet search.  Here is the first of a series, all these items begin with 'A'

Firstly a collage from vintagescraps entitled 'About A Boy'. 

On a background of wise words from 1917 "Mastery of Words Book, this 5x7 little collage combines original text page, hand stamped scrap of 1920's music paper, with 1957 catalogue and typewriter, 1919 report card, and 1907 boy's clothes pattern image.  What fun, and full of memories of yesteryear.

'A' is also for Autumn, and the colours of autumn are depicted splendidly in this pendant from ccvalenzo.

'Autumn's Best' Fused Glass Dichroic Pendant features nothing but the best autumn colours in this striking and glowing pendant.  It's hard to resist.

Another 'A' for 'Autumn' brings us 'Autumn Day Flower Focal Bead from ZudaGay

 

This beautiful flower features focal sculpted petals on a sturdy base and a button for the centre.  It needs no more than a plain cord to transform it into a lovely piece of neckwear.

'C' is for candle, but 'A' is for 'Apple Clove Soy Candle - Highly Scented - Vegan from ajscountrycottage

Cute, highly-scented 8 oz. square mason jar soy candles will envelop your room with the cozy, homey scents that make a house YOUR home.

Lastly, today, 'A' is for Alligators All Around Stroller Blanket!  Made by cindyjoy this too is worth a look.

Alligators circle around this blanket, ready to protect your little one from cold and drafts. All bundled up and ready for giving, this blanket is ideal for tucking around your little one in the car seat or the stroller or as a play mat or just for cuddling or napping.

For more items that begin with 'A', or for items that begin with any other letter of the alphabet just pop along to Etsy and search for 'bbest team' under tags and titles.

Next time I'll be on the lookout for items that begin with 'B'.  I wonder what we'll find.....
