"Whatever is Lovely has been a dream in the making. Leaving the wholesale baby clothing business, I wanted to make, sell and purchase lovely things that I would want to wear, give or have in my home.  This is just the beginning, but I will Faith it until I make it. 

 It is our goal to purchase items from small businesses like my own, and made in the United States.  Some of our antiques and a few of our new items come from small sellers in France, Germany, Italy and England.  We focus on recycling and try to re-use as many things as we can in our shipping.  We want you to be delighted with every purchase, as we put our heart into every choice.  We are looking forward to an adventure of finding, creating and sharing with you.  
Most of all we hope that we bring inspiration and motivation to "Think on lovely things."
Thank you for stopping by." Karen H.

Love your blog. You have some great ideas and beautiful pieces. Have you seen this press release and news article? Blogrower on Typobounty is a new game changing concept and could greatly affect online blogs like yours. You can become a registered hunter (it's free to join) and make money by finding errors on internet websites. Secondly, you can submit your blog on their site and increase your blog readership by allowing hunters to hunt for errors on your website. Imagine huge numbers of hunters reading every word. I just thought you or readers might be interested.For more information please check out the press releases at
