blogiversary giveaway party: elemedey

i've been so excited to get to feature this next shop. Sarah is an acquaintance...we have several mutual friends but haven't had the opportunity to meet yet and I've had my eye on her creations for a while now. i was so excited when she agreed to be a part of this celebration! 


elemedey is a shop that is a tag team effort of two sweet sisters. one is in Texas and one is in Africa.  'elemedey'  means 'beauty' among the Didinga tribe in southern Sudan. Through their shop they "together use our passions to create designs that we hope will bring you a piece of 'elemedey' no matter where you are."


so cool, right? i love it. in the shop you'll find cool handbags, sweet baby gifts, and pretty pretty hair accessories. this is the headband up for grabs!
((click to enlarge either of the photos))


the headbands are priced at $18 and this is your chance to snag one for free! be sure to head on over to their shop to check out all the other goodies!
