Delightful Discoveries - Olive...the Other Reindeer??? 08.29.10

You all know Olive, the other reindeer - don't you? (Just sing the song to yourself, you'll get it!) I thought this little Green Reindeer Bird from sabahnur was adorable, and it was in the color of the day, to boot. How better to introduce olive?

Thank you to everyone who submitted nominations for this post - I was pretty inundated with e-mails, which I truly appreciate and look forward to! I love hearing from you guys!

Speaking of guys, we've got a few things by and for guys for a change today - seems like most of the items I end up posting are targeted towards women and kids and made by women. It's great to see the guys get to share in the fun a little more today!

Well, I love my olive collection - hope you do too! This is just such a small sampling of the many, many olive colored beauties out there... and since olive is such a becoming color on most people and a versatile color for interior decor, I hope you'll be choosing your favorite olives to take home with you!

White is the color (or non-color for those of you who suffer from - or thoroughly enjoy literal disease) of the day tomorrow and I'm guessing that there'll be a pretty good selection to choose from! Indulge me by clicking here to e-mail me the link to the page of the shop where I can view the item! You can also view my calendar of future features by clicking on the "Be Featured" link in the right sidebar :)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend - I'm off to breakfast with my son and his family! Happy Sunday!
