Don't you wish Tanielle was YOUR FIRL (friend in real life)?

Tanielle's the kind of girl that just likes to do sweet things for people. Here's what I mean: A little while back I did this post. You'll have to go read it to understand this gift.

About a week later Tanielle brought this over to me. She made it for me as a "reminder" to have in my home always! I love it!

As many of you know we are not only friends, but business partners as well. We make lots of darling things to sell, while our girls ooh and ahh and wonder when we'll get around to making some for them! My girls especially love the bow holders, which happen to be Tanielle's specialty. Last week she showed up with these. Forgive the editing to protect my children's privacy...I think you can still get the idea of how adorable they are!

It's hard to see in this picture, but the pattern on this is actually red bandana! It's for Cowgirl's new room we're working on. It has a red bandana and denim theme.



They have a lot more bows than this, but I have a hard time getting them to leave them put! They think their dolls and horses need to wear them too!

I feel blessed to have such a sweet and thoughtful friend who is so creative and talented too! Send good thoughts her way, as she is suffering extreme morning sickness as well as her little one-year-old suffering with croup!

I hope all of you are lucky enough to have good friends in your life who uplift and inspire you!

Friendship is a chain of gold
shaped in God's all perfect mold.

Each link a smile, a laugh, a tear,
A touch of the hand, a world of cheer.

What a thoughtful friend. Good friends are better than gold. Worth more too. Your bows and girly stuff are very cute.

I seriously just got done commenting on her blog saying it is NOT fair she actually knows you in "real" life! Cute girly hair clips....& I ♥ that sign she made! That scripture is a very important one in my life...from personal experience it is one that really touches me and reminds me that God will be the final judge and protect his children no matter what!

How thoughtful! I think you are both keepers. :)

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

THAT is sweet. :)

See...the thing is that even though I can ATTEMPT to make my own hair thingies for the girls--they LOOK like I attempted to make my own hair thingies for the girls. ;) Sometimes there are some that are too cute to pass up--like some I've seen in your shop!!!

It's the ones with actual ribbon that I cannot get right to save my life. Just gluing a flower on a clip? I can do that much. The ones you make are ART!!!!! :)

Heather @ Sugar N Spice Mostly Nice said...

Are you sure you both can't just pack up and move to Ohio?!

You two are both so creative. I'm green with envy!

Good friends are certainly one of God's greatest gifts. What a blessing to have such a dear one.

And thanks for your suggestion to join EM:ME. I always enjoy reading your posts. I am know I wrote about going on a diet, but I am not sure I am ready to go public on a weekly basis. But I will think about joining your fun.

She is a great friend! That stuff is way cute! and I hate that she is having such a rough time right now! Morning sickness and a sick little one stinks!

jenjen said...

I can tell how much you like each other just from what you both put on your blogs. You guys are so lucky to have each other and such a wonderful friendship. I agree, I think having uplifting, sincere, true, loyal friends is one of the best things in life.

Yay for lasting friendships! I recently had to stand back and watch one of my best friends sink into a crazy depression/personality change and we haven't been the same sense. I miss her so much and wish that all my fighting for our friendship would have helped. I'm so glad for you and yours!
