The letters of the B B E S T Team ..... stand for?

I looked at the letters which made up the name of the Boomers and Beyond Street Team and thought it might be fun to find an item from within the group starting with the initials of the title, BBEST. So, whilst searching Etsy using the BBEST Team tag, I came up with the following diverse selection!

B ...... stands for
Blue bird's higher calling

'Beautiful handmade jewellery & other little passions by ellen ikemoto'

This delightful pendant is even more interesting because of the write up Streetnoodles has added to the listing.

In her description she relates a poignant recount of her father's story which brings so much more meaning to this bird.


B
...... stands for
Beer Drinking Frogs

Chauncey

'Who doesn't like to see some frogs enjoying themselves with a barrel of beer?'

A picture after my own heart!

Nothing quite like a cold beer on a hot summer's day and these guys look like they could tell a tale or two.



E ...... stands for
Earth Angel

This beautiful Bracelet's is centred by a 16mm Blue Crystal Bead with Gold accents.

Another stunning creation created with a lovely mix of colours!




S ...... stands for
Stained Glass-Wrought Iron Lantern Hammered Gold

Nonnie60

This beautiful lantern was designed and crafted by Nonnie using the copper foil method with Wissmach Hammered Gold Stained Glass with clear diamond bevels, one in the centre of each of the four sides.

This would be a beautiful lantern to display on a porch, in a window, or even inside your home.




T ...... stands for
Tumbled Marble Series Three

Four beautiful tumbled marble coasters to protect your gorgeous furniture from spills and watermarks! What a thoughtful and lovely gift!

You receive four coasters tied with coordinating ribbon ready for giving - or keeping!

I just came across this blog accidentally, and as I was scrolling through was engrossed in Chauncey's "Drinking Frogs" only to find my bracelet under that.
Thank's so much, what an honor to be considered among the Bbest!
