A Boutique with a Heart of Love

I have had the privilege of getting to know Gail at
 Obee Designs.   She and her daughter Meghan are
two women on a mission.
Their inspiration comes from Gail’s father, who passed away
from the complications of heart disease. 

These beautiful ladies had the idea to create jewelry as a tribute
to those we love while donating a portion of the proceeds
to the American Heart Association.

Their Near and Dear Jewelry and T-shirts line was
launched out of love.

 Gail and her daughter Meghan, they’re identical and so pretty!
 Taking after her artistic grandfather,
 Meghan designed this marvelous winged heart
 Charms, lockets and pendants in your choice of
styles and finishes, and chains

   Just email a photo of someone
Near and Dear to you for a truly custom piece
wrapped with care and tucked into a special pouch!

You’ll also find sachets, kitchen towels and hair accessories

Please visit the blog and the boutique and meet
these two amazing women

A wonderful post and so very kind of you, my dear friend.
The lovely ladies at Obee have beautiful jewelry and tees! I ♥ the heart necklace!!
Heart disease has touched so many of us. This is a wonderful cause and very generous of them to donate to the AHA in loving memory of Gail's father.
Thank you for visiting me. It's always a pleasure! Yes, our wonderful husbands would always be gentlemen, and our blogger friends are elegant indeed!!

Wishing you a weekend of love and joy ~ xoxo, B

Don't you just love Gail and her daughter? And yes, I really can't tell Meghan from Gail either, they are both so young and gorgeous! I adore Gail's site and WOW! Has she done a wonderful job spreading word, and advocating for the American Heart Association. So wonderful, many of us want to help, but she actually has acted. They are both making such a positive difference.

I adore mother and daughter teams and the logo they created looks as sweet as they do! I just added you to my blogroll and hope you stop by more often, you're a ray of sunshine!

What a loving,tender and thoughtful tribute!..,

I must say, that this post brought "tears to my eyes"; primarily of course because of the poignant beauty of what these two ladies; mother and daughter, are endeavoring to do as a loving tribute to their dearly departed, husband and father!~

Yet also, because I remember so well, similarly co-creating "A Charles Dicken's" dramatic reading, annual fundraiser for one of our local theatres, (and for another local charities), as a tribute to my dearly departed father, who died suddenly due to an accidental blow to his head , 3 years ago)!..,

Good for those dear women; my they are a beautiful mother and daughter duo, both inwardly and outwardly!..,Also, thanks you to you kind lady, for sharing this wonderful story; I shall be delighted to take a closer look now, at what they offer!

~(I do hope that my "wee bit of trivia" to add to your delightful post, re., "romance" was not a tad "too much" my dear friend!.., As it was meant in the most light hearted way)..,

cheers, blessings and hugs from Wanda Lee @ The Plumed Pen

Dear Mimi,
Thank you for letting us know about this, you are such a sweetheart to help get the word out about something so important.
I cannot believe we'll be in Paris this time next week:)))) We've packed our coats and your books, if only I can decide what to where, help!
Much love
