Friday is one of our favorite days here at Bowdabra! We love to share our top picks from last week’s Saturday Showcase links. Thanks to all who joined in the fun and linked up! Each week, our Bowdabra Design team will pick our favorites and feature them here on our Bowdabra blog, Bowdabra Pinterest, Sandy Sandler Pinterest, Bowdabra Twitter, and Bowdabra Facebook sites! It is NOT an easy task to picking our favorites. We appreciate all of you for linking up and we love visiting all of your blogs, too!
