Featured Item and a Little Something Special

I look forward to Mondays for one reason...New Featured Item Post.

Today's featured item is this Red Cameo Necklace. I paired a vintage cameo charm in a deep red color with a small decorative gold key. I don't actually know the story behind this cameo, but I absolutely love it! This necklace is certified Hand Made and Lovely!

The pendant hangs just over an inch from an 18" gold chain. The necklace hooks with a lobster clasp. Click here to see more about this necklace, and click here to see the rest of my Etsy shop. I forced my model/roommate to wear a white shirt, so the piece would have a neutral background. I actually think this necklace would go with a lot of different outfits. What would you wear it with? I also take suggestions for featured items. Let me know if there is something in my Etsy shop you'd like to know the story behind or want to hear a little more about.

Now on to the something special I promised. I found a new link up, and this one is really unique! It's called This Blog Rocks.

Megan at Mackey Madness, who has a great blog herself, came up with the idea to have bloggers post about one of their favorite blogs and link up. Instead of promoting yourself, you're promoting another blog that you think is fabulous! (But I guess you're kind of promoting yourself too.) If this is your first time reading Hand Made and Lovely, Welcome! I love comments and new followers! Leave a link to your blog, because I would love to check it out.

Anyway, the blog I want to promote today is bouffe e bambini. Hanna has a lot of followers already, so excuse me if you already know about her awesome blog. She features Etsy sponsors (like myself) and hosts tons of giveaways. I also found a cookie recipe that looks delicious. I think I gained 5 lbs by looking at the pictures she posted. Plus, she just had a really cute baby!! Be sure to check out her blog and link up with Megan to promote one of your favorites!
