What happens when a preppy girl buys a farm? She learns how to care for her family, two goats, too many chickens and the latest addition of some bees. All this while still trying to remain the preppy girl she's always been.
I hope you enjoy my creations, recipes and photos of living on the farm.
I arrived home late last week from a photo shoot to find this package. Sorry, I ripped it open before I realized what it was.
It was a great Cocktail Florida Basket from Monica at The Pink Monogram.
This bag,like many of the other product available at The Pink Monogram, comes with so many choices of ribbons and monogram colors and styles. I have been carrying this bag for the past couple days and have gotten so many compliments. It is very sturdy but stylish. It is the perfect size for your keys, a small wallet and a lipstick. This bag will be headed to the Foxfield Races next week in Charlottesville.
And to make this bag even better.... it's not just pretty. It serves a wonderful cause.
Here is the information from The Pink Monogram Website-
Monogrammed Florida Baskets- So Many Designs! The Pink Monogram's New Favorite Pick. Our love of travel, shopping, sewing, and design lead us to create our custom made handbags. Little did we know that this diversion would have such an impact on women of all ages and that our clients would have to carry our business cards, because women constantly stopped them to ask, "Where did you get that bag!"
Our search for a "Florida Basket" lead us to beautiful Thailand; these baskets are "Green" and woven from an invasive water plant that chokes the rivers and streams of the Thai countryside. Over the years we have helped to develop this industry and have forged a close relationship with the group of women weavers who make our baskets. These women have taken this opportunity to improve their weaving skills and increase their financial independence without leaving their communities. Through our Thai contacts we have interacted with the Minister of Trade who encourages and supports our work within his country. Please be aware that when you purchase a Queen BEA Basket you are promoting more than a lovely fashion statement.
There are many different sizes of Florida Baskets to choose from.
So head on over to The Pink Monogram and check out all the Florida Baskets as well as all the other goodies Monica has to offer.
And a huge thank you to Monica for letting me do this product review.
